Overview

School students are an important population; students today will be tomorrow's voters, policy makers, business leaders, innovators and consumers.

We're committed to enhancing teachers' resources and knowledge in an effort to improve genetic literacy in the Australian population.

Our resources include:

  • stimulus material for student engagement and discussion 
  • syllabus-aligned activities for classroom use
  • visualisations based on authentic scientific data
  • evidence-based approaches (eg. argumentation)
  • real-life contemporary contexts that address socio-scientific issues
  • curated guides of freely-available online resources.
