Calling all future genetic engineers, scientists and ... Artists! Now you know that DNA makes you who you are, we are looking for kids with a lot of imagination to create a superhero of their own! Use the small science you have learned to conjure up some really big ideas!

What special superhero powers would your superhero have? What would it look like? What would it eat? Where would it live? How would it save the planet?

Pick up your crayons, markers, paints or pencils and get creative! Send us a picture of your superhero as well as a few lines describing its super powers - and how it got them!

Ugene and Geena are waiting for the postman and will send prizes to the most creative entries. So, what are you waiting for - Ready Set Bio!

Entries should be sent to:

Communications and Outreach Department,
Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI),
National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science (NCBES),
