Designer Babies Game (a lesson in Gene Editing)
7th - 12th, Higher Education
What educators are saying
Activity was adaptable to distance learning and the kids were informed while having fun and great interest about the subject of designer babies.
My students loved designing their babies. They were very engaged in the lesson and became very concerned if they did not have enough money to "save" their child from a disorder.
This is a game designed to help students understand concepts of gene editing and designer babies. Each pair of students gets a unique fetal profile and a different budget and then makes decisions about whether and how to "design" their baby. It is meant to give a deeper understanding of concepts of gene editing & also how income disparity may affect access to these new technologies. The game takes about 30 minutes to play and can be played multiple rounds to give students access to different scenarios if you would like.
