Yeah, if you can get it worked out well enough it would be fine. But I
still despair of getting a group of high schoolers to do it right. And
analysing the result of a random spore (with some diploids) will require
quite a bit of explanation. I had a hard enough time explaining it
to my committee (non-yeast).
But if it can be pulled off it would be cool to distinguish Mendelian
from non-Mendelian genetics. That should confuse them real nice. :-)
