4.8 遺傳與變異 Grey or Ginger Kittens

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students will investigate how genetic variation of traits increase chance of survival.

They will build a system using ​SAM Blockly​ to show the randomization of gene selection and investigate which traits are advantageous to an animal’s survival.

在本課程中,學生將研究特質的遺傳變異如何增加生存機會。

他們將使用SAM Blockly建立一個系統,以顯示基因選擇的隨機化,並研究哪些特徵有利於動物的生存。
