2014 University of Sydney Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize – Secondary
Epigenetics, Jackson McDonald, Varsity College, Qld
Jack Mac tackles a fascinating new field of science in his film, Epigenetics. While DNA is our genetic blueprint, external factors like diet and stress can sometimes switch off a gene and therefore stop it from acting according to the plan. Jack’s film is a clever introduction to a complex subject.
The views expressed in these films are those of the finalists and do not necessarily reflect those of the Australian Museum.
