Join us in a guided hands on journey to extract DNA from strawberries. We will need few ingredients, that you usually find in your own kitchen: alcohol, salt, soap. The procedure is really simple and harmless. At the end of the workshop you will be able to bring home with you some strawberry DNA in a tube. We will be there for answering your questions about the nature of DNA. Bring your kids along they usually enjoy it a lot :) The workshop is donation based, no one turned away for lack of funds. Chip in 3 euros for covering the expenses, further donation we will be used to cover the expenses of other projects running in parallel to the workshop, which you can see at the same location (https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Session:Vitruvian_Man).
