Engage your students with scientific debate!

Sample pages of STEM activity handouts for Human Genome Sequencing


This guide is intended for science teachers who wish to introduce their students to the Human Genome Project, both in its significance to scientific discovery and the broader effects on society.

With the advancement of DNA technology, the human genome was successfully mapped, but as scientists continue to seek genetic information from individuals, ethical questions remain. Through this workshop, students will research the potential benefits and pitfalls of making genome data available to the public and will take a stance based on the available evidence.

Students will come away with in-depth knowledge of:

  • The history of the Human Genome Project
  • The potential benefits of collecting genetic data
  • The ethical arguments against making genetic data public
  • How to organize a defense of their opinion on the subject
