This activity was designed as an introduction to the relationship between cancer and the cell cycle. Students are presented with a brief scenario regarding a college student who has developed skin cancer. Students follow QR code links to online resources to learn about how cancer develops, normal controls of the cell cycle, and the role of various carcinogens. The final question asks students to apply all of the information they have learned into a short writing prompt.
This activity requires that each student or student group have access to wireless internet and use of a device with a QR scanner app installed.
