Projects in development for educational resources related to middle & high school science teachers

These topics can be used in context for teaching modules


IES High School group: Integrating Engineering in Science workshop content .

Biological impact with climate change. Water chemistry ( focus is on CO2 )


MUSE and IES training groups as well as STEM Pride School Groups ( "Health Fair" content)

A potental driving question for these topics related to health could be"How does my DNA affect the function of my cells? " As this topic could be used as this would cut across the sciences from earth science to physics.

Projects:

1. Skeletal muscle

2. Population dynamics-examples with fruit flies

3. Imaging science: Stereology, geometry and math integration with biological concepts (3D-2D issues)

4. Water pollution

5. Epigenetics

6. COPD / CO2-pH / Smoking and health

7. Gamma knife / Nuclear medicine

8. Cardiovascular issues: blood flow, viscosity, plaque

9. Physics in sports, movement and health

10. Synaptic transmission-Neurobiology

11. Optogenetics
