Genome BC Geneskool: Life sciences resources for incoming Gr. 10-12 curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will provide insight into the free resources offered by Genome BC Geneskool that teachers can use as part of the incoming grade 10 biology unit. Using a hands-on approach with plenty of opportunity to provide feedback, participants will experience how Geneskool activities try to develop core competencies in addition to teaching curricular content. We'll delve into one activity - Alien Babies (simple patterns of inheritance) - in detail and use the remaining time to play with other activities relating to applications of genetics and processes of evolution. Some printed materials will be available for teachers to take away.
