The Fruit Fly Drosophila as a Powerful Tool in Teaching Life Sciences in Middle and High School Classrooms
Living organisms are important didactic tools for students, and we describe here for the first time the assessment of a scientific laboratory on Drosophila. The goal of this work is to attract more students to the science disciplines. We aimed to capture students’ interest using educational experiences, and encourage the basic and integrated science process skills that are involved in scientific inquiry, including direct contact to a living organism and in conceptual understanding of biology in the fly.
