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. 

Does each session (Tuesday & Thursday) cover the same content?

Yes, each session is repeated on a Tuesday at lunchtime (12:30-1:15) and a Thursday after school (4:30-5:15) so you can pick which time works best for your pupils. The only difference between these sessions would be any questions asked in the Q&A.

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 about 45 minutes long, including up to 15 minutes for a Q&A with a scientist.

Are the sessions accessible for pupils with additional support needs?
