The biotechnology camp was organised by the Chemistry Education Centre Kemma, the Centre for Bioscience Education BioPop and the LUMA Centre Aalto. The instructors, biology and chemistry students from the University of Helsinki, set up fun and inspiring activities for young students who: made bioplastics from starch and milk, extracted DNA from bananas, studied and cultivated different bacteria, etc. The main objective behind this initiative was to provide meaningful and interesting activities for children and to spark interest in biotechnology.
