Saturday Investigate
(University of Nebraska State Museum)

January 2020

Saturday Investigate is a monthly series held at the University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall, where elementary-school kids come to the museum for hand-on exploration of science. To engage kids in learning about nucleic acids, proteins, and the methods to determine their 3D structures, we held a series of activities including: DNA extraction from strawberries, building the DNA double helix using origami, making sugar crystals to learn about crystallography, and using 3D-printed models to illustrate biomolecular structure/function relationships.
