Watch the video (coming soon) to see how teachers from Phoenix High School used Thingdom in their classroom teaching and their STEM Club. Running length approx. 5 minutes.

Use the game as a starting point for discussion about:
- the inheritance of genetic disorders such as Cystic Fibrosis and Huntingdon's Chorea
- the ethics of genetic screening
- variation amongst species
- evolution through natural selection
Thingdom can be used on computers by individuals or pairs of students working together, or by whole classes via a whiteboard. Students can also be encouraged to use the game at home to support their learning.
