Teaching Genetics with Dragons

Forget boring Punnett square diagrams and embrace the challenge of distilling complex genetics content into understandable and enjoyable lessons with some help from Teaching Genetics with Dragons. Readers can add some fire to genetics lessons with this platform that uses mythical creatures as a launching point for scientific discovery. Though dragons and genetics may not be an obvious pair, these games prove that creativity is boundless. Three games are available: Geniventure, Geniverse, and Genigames. The Summary of Features table on the landing page compares each game, noting the appropriate grade level, topics covered, length of curriculum, and other key features. The games share a core theme, teaching players about phenotypes, genotypes, meiosis, gametes, inheritance, and other aspects of genetics. Readers should note that the games are most compatible with recent versions of Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge web browsers. Additionally, users will have to create a free account to play. Teaching Genetics with Dragons is a project of The Concord Consortium, a nonprofit educational research and development organization, and is supported by the National Science Foundation.
