AS/A2 Science Workshops
Classification & Genetics
We’ve over 20,000 animals, so where would be better than Chester Zoo to study classification and genetics!
We have an amazing selection of skulls that your students will use learn how traditional classification works - we’ll cover each level of the classification hierarchy, from Kingdom to Species level.
We then discuss more modern classification techniques and discover why classification is so important in the real world, including a case study of research conducted here by our scientists (using morphology, behaviour and DNA sampling techniques) which enabled us to recently re-classify a species.
