NCIG hosted a session about Indigenous genomics for the ANU Indigenous STEM Summer School for high school students on 12 December 2017. The session was designed and led by our staff, intern and PhD students. The high school students applied genetic concepts to test synthetic blood, to solve a hypothetical forensics challenge. The enjoyed a tour of the high-tech laboratories of The John Curtin School of Medical Research, and asked lots of questions about how to pursue studies in science and medicine. It was a highly engaging and enjoyable afternoon for all.
