The Strawberry Experiment

Strawberry Experiment

How scientific is a strawberry? The biology classes found out. They did an experiment to show the amount of DNA in a strawberry. First, they smashed the strawberry, then they added a solution of soap and salty water. Then they drained the mix in a coffee filter. Next, they took the drained mixture and added ethanol and let it set. After three minutes they swirled the solution and pulled out slimey stuff. This was DNA. Last, they measured their DNA and cleaned up. When they were done, they got to eat the extra strawberries.
