Race Against the Ageing Clock
Our activities may be suitable for different age groups depending on student ability - you may also like to have a look at out our video pages. We'd love to hear how you and your students get on with our resources - please email pictures and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or link to our Twitter feed @BabrahamInst
Discovering Epigenetics - Ageing in C. ElegansThis lesson will introduce students to the idea of using Caenorhabditis Elegans nematode worms to understand aspects of human biology (ageing) by comparing the appearance and behaviour of young and old worms raised under different conditions.
Race Against the Ageing ClockThis lesson will introduce students to epigenetics, the difference between biological and chronological age, the role of epigenetics in ageing and how different factors can influence the 'speed of ageing'.
Reprogramming adult stem cellsThis lesson will introduce students to stem cells and how adult cells can be reprogrammed to create induced pluripotent stem cells.
Can you match the epigenetic marks on your DNA with those on a 'younger' strand and lower your epigenetic age? Play our online game to try your hand at methylation and demethylation and discover the science behind the Ageing Clock.
