Have you ever wondered how you inherited traits like your eye color, height, or love of certain foods? It’s all coded in your genes! In this session, we will learn about an early scientific discovery that led to our understanding of how traits are passed down from our biological parents and why we don’t look exactly like our parents or siblings. We will then apply these laws of heredity to create fictitious creatures and predict what the next generation will look like.
