My classroom has the unique privilege of serving a gifted and talented student population of our campus. Our classroom is a learning environment that continuously adapts and evolves with every new idea, deep thought, and conversation. Each day as we delve deeper into our topics to further explore, students often get new ideas and make connections that excite them. They want to know more, explore more, and do more. As their GT teacher I want to provide them with every opportunity to do so.
Our class is always looking for ways to connect our learning to the world beyond our classroom. In this project, students go beyond the "wash your hands so we don't spread germs" lesson, to explore what happens if the germ/disease does spread.
The materials from this project offer students an opportunity to become biomedical engineers and work together to find a solution and prevent an outbreak!
Students will explore how to prepare for outbreaks of highly contagious diseases. We will also use the Engineering Design Process to design an antiviral to stop a newly discovered virus from infecting a model cell.
