Assembly presentations - Jeans for Genes

Assembly presentations

We have developed FREE assemblies for you to download and use with your pupils and staff team on Jeans for Genes Day to help explain more about genetics and Jeans for Genes Day.

We have created presentations suitable for primary and secondary school children in PowerPoint format.  You can review and edit the notes in PowerPoint and tailor each presentation for an assembly or classroom setting.

We’re always on the lookout for new and interesting presentations that are really engaging to pupils. That’s why we’re asking you to share your inspiration with us!

If you chose to make your own, we’d love to see your creations and maybe add them to our collection for others to use next year! Please email your presentation to hello@jeansforgenesday.org with your assembly presentation, your name and school name.
