What you’ll do

Bring your A-level students to a programme about genetics, variation and identity inspired by the ‘Being Human‘ exhibition.

This event will challenge the way your students view themselves and others as individuals by reflecting on identity from multiple different perspectives. To inform your students’ understanding, the event will be led by academics and experts from the worlds of science and art.

This event is suitable for post-16 students studying sciences and health and social care. The event is free, but we charge a fee for cancellation or changes to your group size made within three weeks of the event. Both policies are explained in the agreement we ask you to sign ahead of your visit.
