It is a really fun way to dive in to science, and we will do a few virtual labs to learn more about our own skeleton, our genetic makeup and even to solve a crime! We will learn a bit about the social construct of race by understanding human genetics and variation based on regional evolution and diseases, and more! This class is a great mix between culture and science and really gets students thinking about themselves as part of the larger world they are a part of…
