There are many ways to modify the genes or genome of plants and other living things. These genetic modification tools vary based on which method is needed for acquiring specific traits. This lesson introduces various methods of plant modification and demonstrates the scientific process used to create a genetically modified organism (GMO). While GMOs are a topic of socioscientific debate, this lesson focuses solely on the scientific method and biological processes involved in the development of a transgenic plant.
What a GMO is and is what a GMO is not?
How GMOs are made?
How GMOs are tested?
How to have a hands on learning opportunity with GMO seed and non GMO seed?
Students will be able to describe the different methods of modification.
Students will have an understanding of how a plant is transformed.

Leaving honest feedback and rating gives members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with other members. Leaving Feedback is also a way to express your appreciation for a session well done.
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
