Question It? Discover It!

Welcome to Question It? Discover It!

Visit MCM at Home for monthly videos bringing Question It? Discover It! (QI?DI!) to your living room! This program is designed to provide children and families with opportunities to learn about healthy habits through fun, engaging activities, with the support and guidance of medical professionals. QI?DI! is sponsored by Children’s of Mississippi, a part of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.



In this activity your child will learn how to extract DNA from strawberries using safe and common household items. DNA is usually too small to see with our eyes, but like magic we will make it appear! As we work on our activity we will talk about common traits that you can ask your family members about during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. The adults in your family can use this time to learn more about the different health issues in your family by creating a family health portrait.
