“Is This a Good Idea?” – Life Lab, Pt. 3

So far in Life Lab, we’ve uncovered the power of synthetic biology. But with great power comes great responsibility! In this episode, we’ll ask “Is this a good idea?” when it comes to changing the DNA of mosquitoes to fight a deadly virus.

This episode features Dr. Sam Weiss Evans and his 8 year old daughter, Izzy Weiss Evans.

Hear more from Sam about modified mosquitoes and making decisions about science, in our bonus interview episode! They’re available to Tumble Patrons who pledge just a dollar or more a month, on patreon.com/tumblepodcast.

You can find a transcript and other educational materials about this episode on the blog on our website, sciencepodcastforkids.com.

Life Lab is supported by the Engineering Biology Research Consortium, a non-profit committed to educating the next-generation and building a community dedicated to solving big challenges with engineering biology. Funded by the National Science Foundation.
