In this interactive and hands-on workshop we will demonstrate and discuss how you can run simple, low-cost activities in your classroom to introduce primary school students to DNA, gene and genomes.
From origami helices to DNA code cracking of ancient humans and carrying out a class genetic variation investigation we will highlight a range of resources to help inspire your students.
Activities and resources demonstrated are available on our website www.yourgenome.org and www.wgc.org.uk/education.
