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.
Young scholars 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.
A Brave New World?
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.
A Brave New World?
Eleventh graders use medical technologies and protocols to debate certain innovations. In this technology lesson students research biotechnology and publish their findings.
TECH:Medical Technology - Diagnostic (HST)
Students explore medical terminology used in diagnosis. They explore the dexterity needed by a doctor to perform surgery. Students explore diagnostic methods used today in the medical field, X-rays, Ultrasound, MRI, CT-PET Scans, and endoscopy.
How to Make an Artificial Organ
Learners 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.
Time for Design
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.
Germ Relay Race
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.
Questions & answers Medical/Technology
Create questions and answers for medical situations with your class. Use the document to role play or for independent practice.
Amazon Adventure: a Case Study in Medical Technology And Bioethics
High schoolers 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.
Amazon Adventure: A Case Study in Medical Technology and Bioethics
Students 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.
New! Exploring at the Nanoscale
Nano-nano! Nanotechnology can seem like it's from another planet! After learning about this tiny technology, collaborative groups experiment with how smaller particles affect chemical reactions. They do this by immersing a whole and a crushed antacid tablet into equal amounts of water. Nanotechnology is a fascinating topic for your STEM curriculum.
Medicine's Future? There's an App for That
Imagine injecting tiny robots into your blood to help fight disease. According to Daniel Kraft, that's just one of many exciting new medical technologies coming our way in the not-so-distant future. The key to these amazing innovations is the exponential rate at which technologies are becoming faster, smaller, cheaper, and overall better. Use this video to introduce an engineering design project related to the field of medicine, or to explain the concept of exponential growth to your math class. Note that STD testing and colonoscopy technologies are referenced, so be sure the content is appropriate for your students.
What is really the best way to get rid of hiccups? Investigate some old wives' tales and folk remedies related to health. Middle schoolers explore the science behind why people might believe these myths to be true and find the real scientific causes or reasons for their effects. Use this lesson in your unit about persuasive or expository writing, and encourage young writers to back up their findings with evidence.
The Debate Over Stem Cell Research
Learners 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.
Programming the "Rinse Robot"
Experienced chemistry technicians use then layer chromatography to discover how much of a free compound is left after each rinse cycle. Where this could obviously be used as a practice with chromatography technique, it can also be used in a technology course when examining drug development and medical technology. The lesson plan and lab sheet are thoroughly written and even includes drawings of sample chromatography results.
HIV and Flu -- The Vaccine Strategy
What is the biggest threat to a mass number of humans? Not natural disasters, but rather, pandemics! With a lecture and slide show, the speaker discusses how medical technology in the form of vaccines is bringing an end to suffering and fear. There is also a video within the video that graphically displays how vaccines work with the human immune system. Inspire young biologists to enter the medical field with this talk.
What Can a Map Tell You?
Students investigate how maps can provide useful information about health issues. They study a map to draw conclusions about cholera death in London.
The World of Neonatal Nursing
Students explore the world of neonatal nursing. They research all the qualifications to becoming a neonatal nurse. Students unveil what neonatal nursings affect on the environment is.
To The Rescue!
Students study the trial of an automated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) machine. They investigate and role play first aid responses to a variety of emergency scenarios. They write entries for a first aid guide.
