Beaker Buddies Vol. 1: Space and Gene Expression

Tune in to Camryn, Madeline and Mary’s podcast about space travel and gene expression! These three students are winners of Wakefield’s first Science Honor Society podcast competition. Here’s more about them:

What inspired your podcast topic?

We all had a fascination with space and were interested in how space travel is affecting our genetics today.

How is your podcast relevant to teenage listeners?

Genetic expression changes with our everyday actions. As discussed in our podcast, how we take care of our health and what environment we are in will affect how are genes are expressed. That is why when looking at a possibility as current as space travel, we need to also discuss how our genetic expression will change.
