The pictures are of students randomly coupled by the luck of being drawn from a hat. They analyzed themselves for 31 facial traits, used the laws of genetics and coins to determine the traits of their child, and drew the child with its 31 facial traits as a teenager. Couples were awarded extra credit if the child was "undoubtedly theirs." Students learned about dominant & recessive, polygenic, intermediate, and gender inheritance.
