    Whole day workshop program

    What is MOD.ULE?

    MOD.ULE is a full day learning program designed in collaboration between MOD. and UniSA Connect.  MOD.ULE consists of a number of interactive, focused activities that allow students to further explore the themes and concepts of the MOD exhibition IT’S COMPLICATED.

    Students will have exclusive access to the IT’S COMPLICATED exhibition, guided by Moderators. They will explore a large range of ideas including how humans have impacted on global ecosystems and climate conditions.  They will also learn about genetic adaptations and interactions including gene drivers in mosquitos and look at how new technologies in cell interactions can combat cancer.

    Gel electrophoresis activities are conducted by the students to analyse genetic information and see how DNA profiles can be used in various situations. The complications around sharing DNA data are discussed along with future predictions about the reliability of DNA as evidence. Students will also engineer a device applying Newtons Laws to minimize impact forces while replicating the real-world scenario of parachuting cats.
