Genetics Week

Thinktank will be celebrating the breakthroughs in genetics for a whole week, so that you can explore the science behind the headlines. We have a variety of event and activities that give you the chance to discover the wonders of DNA and your genome!

Join local scientists for informal discussions about their work and how it relates to our lives at the Meet the Science sessions in the IDNA exhibition. Watch the award winning Cell! Cell! Cell! show in the Planetarium where we shrink down to microscopic size and explore a multitude of cells that make up your body. And at our Genes to Go workshop, you can extract, precipitate and preserve a sample of your own DNA to take home!
