Title: Genographic's Legacy: Preservation and Projections     
Description: In this Xpeditions lesson, one of a multi-part unit on the Genographic Project, students consider ways in which the project is impacted by scientific and technological advances, including those in life sciences, communications, and transportation. They learn why indigenous communities play such a crucial role in unlocking the secrets of our common ancestry, examine how those communities are being threatened, make projections about future challenges to their ways of life, and consider how research such as the Genographic Project can play a role in preserving them. The Genographic Project, a partnership of the National Geographic Society and IBM, is a five-year study to understand the human journey--where we came from and how humankind came to populate the planet.
