Introduction: Design a Species
This project is based on the Worksheet "Design a species". It has the students use certain traits and allele combination to "create" a species. They do the worksheet; figuring out what phenotypes the "species" will have. Once they have made those decisions, they sketch out their "species" on the worksheet.
Now the fun starts! They go to Tinkercad and use their tools to make a 3D model of their "species". Once made they download as .stl files and send to me for printing (I have kids in charge of the print shop as well).
The rubric for this is simple.
1. Have all characteristics needed in the instructions illustrated on the "species" printout.
