Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Atlas of Science Literacy is a two-volume collection of conceptual strand maps--and commentary on those maps--that show how students' understanding of the ideas and skills that lead to literacy in science, mathematics, and technology might develop from kindergarten through 12th grade.Atlas is part of a coordinated set of tools developed by Project 2061 to help educators understand and use specific goals for student learning. The maps in Atlas are built from the K-12 learning goals presented in Project 2061's Benchmarks for Science Literacy. Benchmarks was derived from the recommendations for adult science literacy proposed in Project 2061's landmark report Science for All Americans.

Rating
0.0 stars

Students conduct Internet research to investigate the purpose and current functioning status of some of the largest dams throughout the world. They investigate the success or failure of eight dams and complete a worksheet. While researching the dams, they also gain an understanding of the scale of these structures by recording and comparing their reservoir capacities. Students come to understand that dams, like all engineered structures, have a finite lifespan and require ongoing maintenance and evaluation for their usefulness.

Rating
0.0 stars

Through Internet research, patent research, standards and codes research, user interviews (if possible) and other techniques (idea web, reverse engineering), students further develop the context for their design challenge. In subsequent activities, the design teams use this body of knowledge about the problem to generate product design ideas. (Note: Conduct this activity in the context of a design project that students are working on, which could be a challenge determined by the teacher, brainstormed with the class, or the example project challenge provided [to design a prosthetic arm that can perform a mechanical function]. This activity is Step 2 in a series of six that guide students through the engineering design loop.)

Students continue the research begun in the associated lesson as if they were biomedical engineers working for a pharmaceutical company. Groups each perform a simple chemical reaction (to precipitate solid calcium out of solution) to observe what may occur when Osteopontin levels drop in the body. With this additional research, students determine potential health complications that might arise from a new drug that could reduce inflammatory pain in many patients, improving their quality of life. The goal of this activity is to illustrate biomedical engineering as medical problem solving, as well as emphasize the importance of maintaining normal body chemistry.

Microarrays and Stem Cells
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, learners use microarray technology to determine which genes are turned on and off at various points in the differentiation of pluripotent stem cells on their way to becoming pancreatic ‘_ cells. An introductory PowerPoint, reading, video clip and an animation provide learners with background information needed to interpret the results of a paper microarray simulation. Learners will position cDNA strips on mini-microarrays to discover which genes are expressing, to what degree they are expressing, and which are not. They use these findings to trace the differentiation of embryonic stem cells that give rise to pancreatic ‘_ cells and other cell types. The role of growth factors and proximity of other cell types is central to learners understanding how researchers may direct the ultimate fate of stem cells. The value of this in treating diabetes is also discussed. This activity is recommended for learners studying Biology at the High School (honors, IB and AP) or Undergraduate level.

Policy: Twenty tips for interpreting scientific claims
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Calls for the closer integration of science in political decision-making have been commonplace for decades. However, there are serious problems in the application of science to policy "” from energy to health and environment to education. To address these problems this article suggests to improve policy-makers' understanding of the imperfect nature of science through the understanding of 20 key concepts. An understanding of these concepts promotes improving interpretive scientific skills which allow policy makers to intelligently interrogate experts and advisers, and to understand the quality, limitations and biases of evidence. These skills are more accessible than those required to understand the fundamental science itself, and can form part of the broad skill set of most politicians and other professions. These concepts should be part of the education of civil servants, politicians, policy advisers and journalists "” and anyone else who may have to interact with science or scientists. Although this article is geared towards politicians, it provides an outstanding summary of how to talk and inquire about science and technology issues for anyone involved in technology at pretty much any level.

Rating
0.0 stars

This seminar by Dr. Jeff Dahn explains why Li-ion batteries die and, using examples from research, how changes to their chemistry can greatly improve their lifetime. The seminar took place at the Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology and is presented in this resource as a video recording. Discussed are testing methods, characteristics of different Li-Ion battery types, additives, research results, and more. It's suggested through design improvements that Li-ion batteries can eventually be made to last for 20, 30, or even 50 years.
