Summer 2014 School courses

Valencia UPV iGEM team introduced The Sexy Plant Project to students between 10 -15 years old, during this summer. Besides, we organised an activity for students to learn the pH scale using a natural indicator based on anthocyanins obtained from plants. Around one hundred students extrated anthocyanins from a red cabagge, and created a natural pH indicator.
