Having an understanding of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) is an important concept, not only in science but in agriculture. This project helps students understand what defines a GMO and also investigate how they are currently being used in agriculture. Students will research various GMO's currently being used. Once students have grasped the concept of Genetic Modifications, they will be asked to use their knowledge to create a campaign either in favor or against allowing GMOs in the U.S. food supply.
