Genome Explorers DNA show: Unlocking the Code of Life
Genome Explorers DNA show at Cleethorpes Academy
Cambridge Science Centre recently brought its newest show ‘Genome Explorers’ to the Cleethorpes Academy. ‘Genome Explorers’ is a show exploring the importance of DNA in the real world. Developed with and supported by The Illumina Corporate Foundation, the show was presented to primary and secondary pupils in the Cleethorpes Academy.
Paul Kaylow, Vice Principal, Cleethorpes Academy, said: “Cleethorpes Academy was extremely pleased to have had the Genome Explorers in the Academy last week. The high-quality show and workshop were engaging and interactive, allowing our students to improve their understanding of science, nurture their love of science, and drive their aspirations in STEM subjects. Subject staff praised the high quality of the activities, and students responded positively to the activities. Students valued the event away from the classroom and enjoyed experiencing science out of the normal classroom environment.”
Cambridge Science Centre is a charity with head offices based in Cambridge, focusing on providing high-quality community and school outreach programmes. CEO John Bull said: “We were delighted to bring this new show to Cleethorpes Academy and over 420 children. Our thanks go to The Illumina Corporate Foundation, who have supported the development of this show and are working with us to help young people discover more about DNA, the human genome and the exciting, ever-growing genomics industry.”
“We’re thrilled to see ‘Genome Explorers’ meet its audience of students at the Cleethorpes Academy,” said Vanessa Light, Senior Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility at Illumina. “We are honoured to support and collaborate with Cambridge Science Centre on developing this content that can serve to ignite curiosity about genomics in young people.”
