Extracting DNA from Strawberries

Postby vcruz04 » Fri Nov 27, 2015 11:51 pm

I did an experiment were I extracted DNA from strawberries and I really want to do this for my science fair but I don't want it to be a demonstration I want it to be an experiment. To be an experiment it has to be able to have a question and hypothesis but I'm having a really hard time coming up with a question and hypothesis and the variables. I really need help in making this an actual science fair experiment!!

I loved doing this experiment too! I can certainly understand why you would want to do it again--so much fun.

Unfortunately, since a hypothesis is all about you and what you believe you can prove I would be unable to write this for you. Just remember that If/Then statements are the key here. You can do it! Just think about the strawberry and the DNA and let your mind go wild!!

Please message us back if you have any further questions. Here is a bit more information on hypothesis'
