Code of Life

Why do trees look very different from bacteria, why do fish live in water and insects on land? The creatures we can see today have had many millions of years to adapt to a wide variety of habitats. While living creatures can look very different, they all have one thing in common: they all have an internal “blueprint” made of DNA. The workshop introduces the topics of evolution and genetics. Through games and experiments, pupils learn how all living things are related to each other and how you can see the DNA of strawberries.

This workshop can be offered free of charge thanks to the support of the state of Lower Austria.



This workshop is designed for children aged 7-10. Pupils do not need to bring anything to the workshop. We are happy to accommodate your needs regarding the time of the workshop!
