TeachEngineering: Keepers of the Gate
Red Rover, Red Rover, send young intracellular engineers right over! In this unit of the TeachEngineering series, scholars tackle the challenge of determining why Grandmother’s suggestion of gargling with salt water to relieve a sore throat actually works. To gather information about cell membrane structures and functions, researchers watch a TEDx Talk, review articles, conduct experiments, and then design labs that answer the research question. A formal lab write-up serves as the unit assessment.
