- This is one part of a series of high school science reading articles on teens who are innovators, demonstrate growth mindset characteristics and are making a difference in their world.
- This reading set includes a two page article on the person listed and their work, as well as reading comprehension and reflection questions. Jack Andraka attempted to make a simple blood test for pancreatic cancer. Although his test was not as successful as first thought, he still is a model of teen innovation.
- The article is provided at two reading levels (approximately 10th grade and approximately 7th grade). Also included are two differentiated sets of response questions, as well as an answer key.
- This article can be used as sub plans, as a way to integrate growth mindset and literacy into class on a regular basis, as a station, as a means of engaging students in science and helping them to see themselves as scientists.
