Despite the increasing numbers of Genetic Algorithms (GA) applications, we have yet to witnessed a well-designed teaching kit developed for education. Such missing link between the research and education will hinder the further development of GA, especially for newcomers and other potential but unexplored research areas. A software teaching kit on Microsoft Window 95 platform is hence developed based on the biomorph process. The main theme of this software is to create a creature, an insect, according to the creature's specifications and features. User can play the game by selecting various parameters of an insect provided in the kit. Throughout the GA evolutionary processes, the preferred insect is to be created. In such, user can learn about the GA according to the pre-designed selection of the basic functions such as crossover, mutation, selection and so on.
