Citizen Science

The Citizen Science project was a collaboration between @Bristol's Education team, the University of Bristol, teachers and scientists. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, a series of activities engage both teachers and students in discussions about biomedical science.

This collection contains a range of teacher support materials and classroom activities that are designed to help engage students in debate about issues around advances in biomedical sciences. Through a variety of approaches, students debate, discuss and gain an understanding of topics such as:
* Alcohol and drug abuse
* Genes, genome and genetic testing
* Nanotechnology
