    Experiment
    Students use sockosome models of chromosomes (made from pairs of socks) to understand the processes of mitosis, meiosis and fertilization. Students are also introduced to the concept that understanding meiosis and fertilization provides the basis for understanding genetics and learn how a mistake in meiosis can result in Down Syndrome.
