Genetics, Heredity and Disease – Year 12 Biology Visit the UNSW Museum of Human Disease

UNSW Museum of Human Disease

Last week, the Year 12 Biology students traveled to the UNSW Museum of Human Disease in Kensington to undertake a four-hour seminar, applying their knowledge and understanding of Genetics, Heredity, and Disease.

The students listened to two lectures and undertook a variety of ‘hands-on’ activities whilst exploring the museum’s many fascinating specimens.

Reflections from our Senior Students

“The excursion was an eye-opening experience which gave us an insight into the world of Biology and Human Disease.” – Darius Hall

“It was cool! The teratoma (germ cell tumour) was strange but interesting to learn about. It had teeth!!!!” – Will O’Connor

“The activities clarified future career paths. It was alarming to see the impacts of our lifestyle choices on our vital organs.” – Finn Stranix

Thank you to Ms Silvia Baylie for accompanying the students on the day.
