In 2013, schools around Wales will act as hosts for genetics events during the autumn term. During previous roadshows, speakers from the Universities of Cardiff, Swansea, Bangor, Aberystwyth, Glamorgan, Bristol, Bath and Glyndwr, NHS Trusts and Police Authorities across Wales as well as private companies took part. Topics included DNA & Forensics, Genetic Counselling, Stem Cell Research, GM Foods, Inherited Disorders, Evolution, Genetics & the Media and Genetic Engineering.
There was a tremendous response from schools for the previous events with well over 3,000 students participate each year. The Gene Park is greatly assisted in the delivery of this event by Techniquest.
If you would like your school host an event in the next round, please contact Angela Burgess, Education Project Manager, BurgessAM@Cardiff.ac.uk.
