Insect GENEration

Students build a model insect based upon genetic information provided to them in the lab directions. Gene forms (alleles) contributed by each parent are determined by tossing a coin with one side representing the dominant form of the gene and the other side representing the recessive form. Student teams record the genotype and phenotype for each trait and then construct the insect using inexpensive, readily available materials.
