This study aimed to come up with lessons in Genetics using Installation Arts for Senior High School students. It employed pre-experimental, one-group pretest – posttest design, which implied a complete enumeration of 38 Grade 12-STEM2 students of Ligao National High School, for school year 2018 – 2019. Specifically, it aimed to answer the following questions; (1) What lessons in Genetics can be developed using installation arts with the following features: a) arts integration, b) collaborative learning, c) representation of concepts and d) inquiry-based? (2) What tangible physical representation of concepts can students create using installation arts? and (3) What are the effects of the developed lessons using installation arts to students in terms of: a) conceptual understanding, b) development of 21st-century learning skills and c) Science-related attitudes? Based on the result of the study, three lessons in Genetics, namely: (a) Non-Mendelian Modes of Inheritance, (b) Sex-Related Inheritance and (c) DNA Replication using installation arts were developed incorporating art integration, collaborative learning, representation of concepts and inquiry-based learning as its features. Moreover, students were able to create ten tangible physical representations of the concepts in Genetics which were competency-based. Furthermore, based on the analysis of the results of the pretest and posttest, it revealed that there is a significant difference in students’ conceptual understanding with a p-value of .000 which implies a highly significant difference under .05 confidence level. Finally, the lessons using installation arts developed students’ 21st-century learning skills and science-related attitudes.
