The Wales Gene Park was voted winner of the “Most Engaging Stand” at the Health and Care Research Wales Involving People Network annual meeting 2016 held at the Cardiff City stadium on 1st February! Delegates attending the meeting were asked to visit the stands throughout the day and vote for the most engaging exhibit.
Our interactive stand featured hands-on activities relating to DNA and genetics, including a DNA lucky dip, where visitors to the stand created a DNA sequence using beads before finding out which organism the sequence originated from, as well as DNA origami and giant DNA blocks. The stand also featured information and literature about the Wales Gene Park, including its education and engagement programme, and the laboratory services it offers.
Many thanks to all those who visited the Wales Gene Park stand and voted for us!
