Yogurt, biofuel, biodegradable plastics, and antibiotics are all examples of products based on biotechnology research and manufacturing techniques. What else will we be able to create as we use biotechnology in new ways?

Unsure of what the steps of the scientific method are? Not sure how to apply the scientific method? Watch how we use the scientific method to explore the science of popping boba – fun juice filled balls that pop in your mouth. You can find more information about each step of the scientific method at https://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/science-fair/steps-of-the-scientific-method?from=YouTube. Science Buddies also hosts a library of instructions for over 1,500 other hands-on…
Did you know that you can make a living painting with bacteria? You can genetically modify bacteria so they become colored. In this activity, you will grow such colored bacteria and create a beautiful painting with them. You can even see some of them glow under black light! Written instructions as well as the Streaking and Art Template and kit information are available on our website at https://www.sciencebuddies.org/stem-activities/genetically-modified-bacteria-painting?from=YouTube.

How do weeds impact crop growth? Why should farmers be concerned about the growth of weeds (unwanted plants) in their crops? This video demonstrates a simulation activity found in the lesson plan, "The Science of a GMO." Link to lesson plan: https://www.agclassroom.org/matrix/lesson/598
This video demonstrates the laboratory activity in the lesson plan, "The Science of a GMO." Students use an inquiry-based approach to observe 2 soybean seeds phenotypically through observation followed by genotypically through a simple protein detection test to determine the similarities and differences of a conventional (non-GM) soybean and a GM soybean.
