Material Detail: “Drosophila Interactive Activity”
Drosophila Interactive Activity
Tis material is an interactive, online simulation designed to enhance the study of genetics through simulated laboratory work. This is a computer simulation of a genetics lab experiment using Drosophila. Students can simulate an entire lab environment. Students can use flies with different mutations to do test crosses. After doing crosses, students can do a chi square test. Students use the scientific method throughout the simulated lab.

GREAT intro to real life labratory work. There's an activity I found on catching your own drosophila, I'll try to post it. Can't wait to try this on my students.

A wonderful virtual tour. I went through it and can see students having a lot of fun with this one.

This is very helpful for kids to do a simulation when crossing Drosophila is a long and arduous process.
