This specialist program introduces young people to the global challenge of antimicrobial resistance. Through a suite of online resources, students are guided through the process of designing their own scientific investigation to determine the antimicrobial properties of a chosen plant-based extract.
The online resource has a step-by-step process for students to follow – from carrying out background research, to considerations for planning and conducting an experiment, to recording and interpreting results.
This program ideally runs across 8-10 weeks of the school term, however, we can provide guidance on how to extend or reduce the program length.
Teachers have the option to complete this program online at their school using secondary data provided by the Tech School based on published research. Alternatively, teachers can book groups of students into the Tech School for 1 day to conduct their experiments. During this visit, we can also offer a Skill-Up session on how to effectively communicate research findings using infographics.
- Students are able to communicate automation concepts to address Urban farming needs
- Collaborate effectively to create solutions to identified problems
- Consider a range of tools, technologies and specialist equipment
- Critical & Creative Thinking
- Problem Solving
Technology Skill Up Sessions Available
Develop and implement a systematic approach to answer questions about the antimicrobial properties of a chosen extract
Create infographic designs to visualise the findings of the scientific investigations and document the results
