In this project, students take on the role of a genetic counselor who will be counseling parents about the diagnosis of their unborn (or possibly already born) child. Students pick a disease (or you could assign them) and then research and present the symptoms and causes of the disorder. Students create an informational handout to give to the parents. A list of disorders to choose from is provided, as well a starting point resource for finding up to date information. There is also a rubric provided. This is a great project for starting a unit on bioinformatics and/or a nice culminating project for a genetics unit. Enjoy and please email me if you have any questions!
