Interested in exploring ethical, legal, and social dimensions of genetics in your classroom? Check out this series of bite-sized, self-contained lessons (called “SNAPSHOTs”) that explore the use of genetic tools - key scientific concepts, the potential benefits, as well as the implications - through a central case study. Each SNAPSHOT provides high quality and meaningful content that students can work through in a self-directed manner. Geared in particular towards high school educators and their students, SNAPSHOTs are also suitable for those at the college level. SNAPSHOTs are part of a larger set of resources created by our partners at the Personal Genetics Education Project (pgEd) of Harvard Medical School, who promote education and dialogue about genetics towards a more equitable and safe future as genetic technologies enter societal use.
