Explore the science behind DNA damage and repair with this thought-provoking board game designed by Dr Martin Christlieb from the Department of Oncology, Oxford University. In teams, students adopt the role of a person living their life and use dice rolls to represent the damage and possible repair mistakes in their DNA. The game highlights the importance of inheritance and lifestyle in cancer outcomes, as well as illustrating some aspects of ‘how science works’. A good resource for a KS3/4 biology lesson on genetics or a PSHE session on lifestyle choice.
