B6472: Mendel: Why was he so great? in Splash Spring 2018
We had been breeding plants and animals, selecting for desirable traits, for thousands of years before we knew how those traits were transmitted from parents to their children. Mendel made a ground breaking discovery of the laws of inheritance in the 1860s. We will learn the secrets of Mendel's success and why Mendel is still relevant today.


B6473: Genetic inheritance with Reebops in Splash Spring 2018
We will explore Mendel's laws of inheritance by breeding Reebops. Reebops are fantastical marshmallow creatures with several traits, such as straight or curly tails, that are inherited according to Mendel's laws.
