February Half-Term Challenge 2014
Over the past few days we have been learning about DNA , genetic engineering and synthetic biology.
I have enjoyed working as a group , dancing and making a rap.I thought the quizzes and , learning about the bacteria was interesting.
My favourite part was doing the rap and the voice exercises, and I also liked it when we had to guess the answers for the quizzes.
I learnt the many uses genetic engineering has which I found interesting , and learning in more detail about synthetic biology even though we have done it at school . Learning the rap a making up our own dances was fun.
I loved dancing and performing in the show and watching the videos
I want to do more dancing and using computers and more performance.
It's a Wrap!
Well we've successfully completed our February 2014 Half-Term Challenge! Following our previous creative explorations of DNA, this years challenge explored the principle ideas behind bio engineering and synthetic biology.
Over three days young people worked alongside local Artists and created dance and music and a script reading inspired by bio engineering!
Special thanks goes to the all the tech crew who helped to document events and then produced a fantastic film showing all our hard work!
Thanks to Angga from Hantu collective for helping participants to shape their performance and to local artiste JKAS for helping the group deliver a genetics themed rap!
Our next challenge will be in the summer.
