Educational resources

Bring Genetics to Life – free resources for schools. Resources for children that have been developed with teachers and tested within the classroom.

These resources are designed to provide teachers with engaging material that can be used to help pupils learn about genes, inheritance and genetic disorders.

To bring the subject of genetic disorders to life, we make five minute films that are narrated by children who are either affected by a genetic disorder themselves or have an affected sibling. Each film is accompanied by a teacher fact sheet and a number of resources that can be used in the classroom. Please visit our film library to see the films we have made to date or search by age using the buttons on the left.

We have also developed assemblies for children of all ages to talk about difference and the subject of genetics.
