Outreach kits

Props and activities to bring science to life

We provide a range of kits to support our scientists to go out into the community to talk about their science. Our kits are easily adaptable and can be used with a range of ages from primary school to secondary school and beyond.

Our kits cover a range of topics including the structure of DNA, infectious diseases, human variation and bioinformatics. From microscopes to UV glitter gel we have a range of props and equipment that can bring the subject of genetics to life for young people.  We also provide support to scientists planning sessions and presentations to maximise the impact of their outreach.

Over the past two years, our scientists used our kits in local primary and secondary school events with over 1,000 young people.
