Understand the Human Genome

Through Hands-On Digital Adventures!

Engage middle and high school students with a hands-on exploration of human genetics, and monitor their progress in real-time. The interactive lessons in GenomeYou fulfill Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Coming Soon!


d’Vinci Interactive, a leading K-12 learning technology solutions company, has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for the “Blueprint of Life” Genomic Literacy Tool.

BluePrintofLife.com will be the first educational website for middle and high school students and their teachers that focuses on genomics as a pathway to improving educational outcomes in biology, STEM and personal health. The virtual curriculum will cover molecular genetics, personalized medicine, bioinformatics, ethics, genetics science careers, and a first-of-its-kind viral genomics and vaccine development module that includes the application to the COVID-19 pandemic. The educational website will be developed to reach a wide range of learners and will be tailored to match students’ diverse learning abilities. A Spanish language version will also be available.

Designed to work in the classroom and in distance learning environments, the educational website will provide an expansive Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned science curriculum. Teachers will have access to real-time reports on all student progress with schools, and school districts will be able to report on learning metrics and outcomes associated with adoption of the Blueprint of Life curriculum.

d’Vinci will launch the Blueprint of Life genomic literacy solution in fall 2022 as an online subscription-based product for teachers, schools, school districts and educational organizations.
