Cloning

Should we be worried about a real Attack of the Clones? Join Tim and Moby in this BrainPOP movie, as they teach you about science of cloning! They’ll answer all your big questions, like: What are clones? How do they occur naturally? And how have humans managed to duplicate animals in the lab? You’ll also learn about how farmers have been cloning plants for thousands of years, and how we might one day make new versions of extinct animals! Finally, you’ll get the scoop on some problems with cloning, including the ethical and moral questions it raises; the health problems some cloned animals have; and the possible threats that cloned species pose to the environment. It’s fair to say that Tim leaves no clone unturned in this special report!
