School District 52 students embrace Science Literacy Week

DNA extraction and binary coding are just a sample of activities students learned for Science Literary Week in School District 52.

Students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 got hands on with science and visited the Prince Rupert Library on Thursday, Sept. 21 where they built their own binary bracelets, and had a tour of the building from staff member Beth Diamond.

Earlier in the week, Roosevelt Park Elementary School students participated in a nation-wide educational webinar, where they worked with a scientist to extract DNA from fruit.

“The kids are enjoying it and enjoying this activity and they love participating and learning about different ways to immerse their learning,” said vice-principal Peter Scott.
