A Simple Interactive Introduction to Teaching Genetic Engineering
Child, Paula
School Science Review, v95 n351 p16-18 Dec 2013
In the UK, at key stage 4, students aged 14-15 studying GCSE Core Science or Unit 1 of the GCSE Biology course are required to be able to describe the process of genetic engineering to produce bacteria that can produce insulin. The simple interactive introduction described in this article allows students to consider the problem, devise a model and then test their model. It has been used as an effective starter for a range of abilities. The level of terminology used in this note reflects that required within the specifications.
