Today Clare and I commenced production of the T Y student activity book. Underestimated the task ahead-must include an introduction to genetics as Junior Cert science discusses the existence of chromosomes- that’s it!

Before Bat lab specific material can be introduced to any TY we have to bridge the gap  between junior cert science and Senior biology.

Students entering TY literally only know about the existence and number of chromosomes in the nucleus of human cells. Material has to be developed to introduce DNA, cells, genetics etc with enough depth to enable comprehension of bat lab research but not over kill- TY students are still quite young.

No cool addition to the blog today- just desk work.

Bats are crucial in seed dispersal-a picture is worth a thousand words!
