In this activity, learners make a “creature” by mixing and matching different parts of toys.
The activity is designed to prompt conversation and reflection about responsible innovation, inspired by themes raised in Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein.
- The primary objective of this activity is to encourage creativity and reflection about responsible innovation. In addition, learners will explore the following concepts:
- People are creative! We’re always learning more about the world and inventing new things.
- It’s important to think ahead as we study science and make new technologies.
- Researchers in the fields of genetic engineering and synthetic biology can create modified and entirely new organisms.
