Students explore new medical technologies to exhibit in an Amazing Medical Machines technology fair. They research different types of advanced medical technologies; then create posters to summarize findings and present at a mock medical symposium.
Students assess what they know about historical medical practices, explore President Garfield's preventable death, and conduct research on current trends in medical technology. They create artistic, informative pieces to be displayed in a museum.
Eleventh graders examine the way emerging medical technologies contribute to desirable and undesirable outcomes. They read and discuss news articles and editorials, and conduct Internet research. Students contribute to a Web Log, and participate in class discussions.
Eleventh graders use medical technologies and protocols to debate certain innovations. In this technology lesson plan students research biotechnology and publish their findings.
Young scholars explore a case study. They use problem solving skills to determine initial procedures or experiments necessary slow disease and develop a drug. Students examine FDA drug approval procedures. They consider environmental and ethical issues in making a decision to market the drug.
Students design bionic organs or limbs. In this medical technology lesson, students view a video about artificial organs and prosthetic limbs. They research the medical technology behind these advances and work to design a organ or limb replacement of their own.
Students in a special education class examine the United States Constitution. Using the text, they answer five research questions and discuss the amendments that concern medicine, ethics and law of the right to die issue. They develop their own opinions on the issue and present them to the class as a presentation or debate.
Students describe DNA and the roles in which engineers are involved with the human body.  In this DNA lesson students participate in a class demonstration. 
Young scholars complete a variety of activities as they examine the ethical issues behind stem cell research and cloning. They make their own ethical decisions on both subjects.
Students test problem-solving skills, the ability to see connections, and the ability to draw conclusions and inferences from information provided in a case study. Given a case study, they formulate a procedure and draw conclusions.
Review concepts of cloning and genetic engineering and participate in a round-table discussion based on the ethics and potential of cloning with your class. Each learner then writes a formal essay on the topic, stemming from the debate.
Students combine a jigsaw learning technique with an inside/outside review game to learn about genes and the Human Genome Project. Students will describe DNA, genes and chromosomes.
Review the aspects of human cloning and the moral issues associated with it. Individually, your students will keep a list of the articles related to this issue and research issues related to the ethic issues people are concerned with. After reading various linked resources, they participate in a debate which they state their argument on the right to privacy in issues associated with cloning and genetic engineering.
High Schoolers participate in a class discussion on the ethical issues faced in the health care industry today. In groups, they develop their own definition of bioethics and role play the role of one of the various types of members of different ethical systems. To end the lesson, they develop the characteristics of their own health care system.
Students create a presentation and package of materials based on their research to be presented at a fictional science conference. Given a specific scenario, students research various body systems and how they work in conjunction. Their findings are presented to the class at their science conference.
Learners consider the social, political, environmental, economic, medical and other considerations for why particular countries experience outbreaks of certain infectious diseases.
Learners analyze how medical devices that help the human body function. They work in pairs or groups to draw multiple views of the medical device and describe how engineering is used by biomedial engineers.
Eighth graders research changes in medical technology and practice that took place in North Carolina between the years of 1870 and 1930. They also examine the difference between the "Humeral Theory" of disease and the "Germ Theory" of disease and how it may have influenced the way doctors practiced medicine. From their research they present how those changes impacted the lives of people at that time.
Students are introduced to the design process used in engineering. They compare and contrast this process with the steps followed in the scientific method. Students then participate in a brainstorming session that asks them to design a process that moves everyone from the class to the playground without touching the ground.
Science learners journal familiar ways that the human body can regenerate or heal itself. In small groups, they research and create a poster of current information on stems cells and how they can be used to regenerate. The article for the homework assignment is not available, however there are links to other resources that can serve as extensions.
