What’s New Under the Sun!

Nanotechnology – Quantum Theory – Biotechnology – Stem Cell Research!

Our students inhabit a world where Science & Technology is progressing at amazing speed yet most Science syllabuses remain static documents unable to accommodate change.

New Science

‘What’s New?’ under ‘The Sun’ 😉

Your Challenge:

– Inspire your students to desire to explore cutting-edge science.

Introduction:

– Find articles, visit Internet sites or watch YouTube videos about ‘cutting edge’ areas of Science research. Or… just tell the students about how the science of today will be places they will probably work in years to come. e.g. the field of Nanotechnology where tiny robots may be injected into your bloodstream so they can hunt down and eliminate cancer cells etc, etc.

Task

– Research what you think is one of the most exciting areas of Science and let us know what is currently happening in this field.

You may like to consider: Medicine, Nanotechnology, Space Exploration, Cosmology, Deep Sea Exploration, Archeology, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics, SETI or any other field that you think will interest the class.

You must present your findings as a three-paragraph summary. This piece of writing will be read to the class and added to a class book.
