Product Description

Suitable for 11-18-year olds (secondary, middle and high schools), this article and accompanying activity sheet can be used in the classroom, in science clubs and at home.

This resource links to KS3/Grade6-8 Biology, Interactions and interdependencies and KS4/Grade9-10 Biology, Ecosystems; Evolution, inheritance and variation, but is also internationally relevant.

It can also be used as a careers resource and links to Gatsby Benchmarks(UK Relevant):
Gatsby Benchmark 2: Learning from career and labour market information
Gatsby Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum learning to careers

The article includes a summary of a research project, summaries of plant diseases, molecular genetics and big data, i.e. what are these fields and what role do they play in keeping our food crops free from disease, and an interview with Dr Kim Hammond-Kosack.

The activity sheet includes discussion points - nine questions the students can answer in groups or individually - and ideas for activities that are relevant to biology.

For more articles and activity sheets linking to biology, physics, chemistry, maths, space, Earth and environmental science, engineering, technology, computer science, medicine, social science and humanities, visit Futurum Careers: https://futurumcareers.com/
