Genomics Lite: FAQs

Find out more about Genomics Lite

Genomics Lite is a new programme of live webinars to inspire and engage upper secondary biology groups.

Can you provide me with a certificate of attendance for coming to Genomics Lite?

We are no longer able to provide certificates of attendance for genomics lite due to changes in zoom privacy settings, as we are unable to verify attendance.

What level are the sessions aimed at?

The programme is aimed at upper secondary biology classes – GCSE, A-Level, and equivalents. Classes from other levels are welcome to attend, but please note that the sessions will be pitched at GCSE+ level.

How long are the sessions?

Each session is up to an hour long, including up to 15 minutes for a Q&A with a scientist.

Are the sessions accessible for pupils with additional support needs?

Sessions have live closed captions provided by otter.ai, and recorded sessions have captions that have been checked and edited.

We are working hard to make sessions as accessible as possible. Please contact us at engage@wellcomeconnectingscience.org if you have any specific questions around accessibility.

I’ve registered for a session but haven’t recieved any emails or links for the session

Please check your junk folder, as sometimes emails from eventbrite can go there. Schools may need to whitelist or safe-list emails from noreply@event.eventbrite.com to ensure pupils and teachers recieve these emails.

What are the technical requirements for attending a session?

You’ll need a PC, laptop or tablet with internet access to be able to join the session – this could be one-per-pupil or one computer connected to a projector for a whole class to join together.

I’m looking for an online session about a specific topic…

If you have any particular topics that you’d like us to cover you can email us at education@wgc.org.uk. We can also run some bespoke sessions for eligible schools on a range of topics, please get in touch to find out more.
