In this lesson, students will understand the role the immune system plays. They will learn about the different types of pathogens, how they infect our bodies and the stages of infection. In the Agents of the Immune System GooseChase experience, students will work independently or as part of a team to complete the missions, learn about the immune system and collect points. Students' submissions in the GooseChase app will remain hidden from other students who participate in the Agents of the Immune System experience.
In this post activity to the school program, Neuroscience, students will learn the difference between reaction and reflex neural pathways. They will simulate what happens in their body during a reaction and during a reflex to better understand why there is a difference between the two.
In this lesson students will make a model of the respiratory system with everyday items. Students will also learn about respiratory diseases and how 3D printing technology can repair parts of the respiratory system. This lesson is intended for the college level.
In this lesson students will learn how yeast metabolizes different kinds of sweeteners. Students will also learn that a variety of factors can impact the gut microbiome, affecting human health. This lesson is intended for the college level.
In this lesson students will calculate the amount of carbon in local trees by doing measures on actual trees. Students will also learn how deforestation affects the carbon cycle. This lesson is intended for the college level.
In this lesson students will build and race balloon cars. They will use free-body diagrams and appropriate equations to analyse motion in the context of Newton’s 3rd Law of motion. This lesson is intended for the university level.
In this lesson students will make a saltwater battery to learn about battery technology. They will demonstrate how the voltage of a battery is affected when battery cells are placed in series or parallel. This lesson is intended for the university level.
In this lesson students will use an oscilloscope to compare the wavelength and amplitude of sounds from various items and instruments. They will perform calculations relating the speed of a wave to its wavelength and frequency. This lesson is intended for the university level.
In this lesson, students will do a resonance experiment using a wine glass and an oscilloscope. Students will calculate harmonic frequencies and wavelengths. This lesson is intended for the university level.
In this lesson students learn about Kirchoff’s Laws for current and voltage in series and parallel circuits by physically simulating circuits as a class and then by building their own circuits. This lesson is intended for the university level.
Through an interactive story, students will experience the issues relating to the water quality of the Great Lakes and St Lawrence River basin, from Lake Nipigon downstream to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Hence, students will explore the impacts that local and regional issues can have on the world and experience the inter-connectedness between various human activities (industrial and commercial, agricultural, mining, and personal), and water pollution, both indirect and direct, in order to illustrate that pollution is not always visible. Students will be asked to make decisions in order to manage and prevent water pollution at a personal, local and national level.
