Student conference

Meet the Reproductive Biologists helping to save Victoria’s most threatened species from extinction and explore VCE Biology Unit 2 concepts demonstrating how stem cells are essential for growth, development and reproduction in this insightful student conference. You’ll have the chance to:

  • Meet real-world experts in reproductive Biology
  • Explore fundamental concepts in reproduction biology including stem cells, differentiation, genes and patterns of inheritance and how they can be applied to tackle a real-world conservation issue
  • Discover why an understanding of sexual reproduction, growth and development, and inheriting genotypes and phenotypes are crucial in fighting extinction
  • Learn about the science-based techniques for captive breeding of critically endangered animals
