Year 9 activity

A great STEM investigation - testing and analysing patient samples!

Your students will step into the shoes of a pathologist to diagnose diabetes. They will use technology, including use of glucose meters and a research protocol to determine glucose and insulin levels in patient samples.

Our BioDiscovery scientists will guide students through the use of digital technology to record, graph and analyse their patient samples to arrive at the best treatment plan.
