Project BioEYES, Advanced:
Student Extension Activities

Advanced student journalAll "Project BioEYES" programs involve our zebrafish experiment, where adult fish are brought to the school to produce embryos that are raised throughout the week. Our Advanced program, designed for high school students, brings in zebrafish with heterozygous and homozygous mutations for a more in-depth Mendelian genetic experiment, while also discussing stem cells and vertebrate embryonic development. All activities below are in PDF form, suitable for printing or projection, and are included in the BioEYES Teacher Manual.
