Searching for Eel DNA

Lesson: Geography

Class: Year 5/6: Aventurine Year: 2023 - 2024

Last Thursday Aventurine class went to Capels Mill where we met Tasmin from the Stroud Water Project. Here, she led us in a fieldwork investigation. She taught us the names of equipment, which we then use to carry out a filteration experiement where we look for Eel DNA. We have sent our samples off to Slimbridge who will take a look and see if the sample we tested did have eel DNA in it.
