Do you want to know a secret?



Students receive a sealed secret box, that contains a chance card. Opening the box represents taking a genetic test.

Working in research groups to explore the issues surrounding genetic testing, students have to make an informed choice about whether or not to open their box at the end of the activity.

The documents below explain how to run the activity and provide all the templates and materials you'll need.
