science: DNA - a kiwi connection

what we are doing

Have you ever wondered what DNA stands for and how it relates to your own body?

Did you not pay attention in high school but now have a curiosity to understand more?

In this class we will cover a brief overview of what DNA is, its structure and a bit of the history behind its discovery - the NZ connection, the questionable ethics: who knew DNA had so much backstabbing and intrigue as the genesis of its discovery?
