Client Reviews

My son really enjoyed the Engineering Nature course! He learned a lot about DNA, biotechnology, and genetically modified organisms. The handson activities were his favorite part, especially extracting the DNA from a banana. He's now interested in pursuing a career as a genetic engineer. Alex M.
