Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

What makes us different? Every living organism is made up of cells, from single celled bacteria to complex organisms like animal and plants.  

This class focuses on the structure of DNA, what it is made of and how it is arranged. Students will also look at genes as packets of information, and be introduced to  some key terminology to set them up for exams.

This is a great class on a topic which can often be difficult to understand. By taking this class, students can feel prepared for future lessons and assessments building on Genetics knowledge.
