Thomson, Barbara S.
The goals of this curriculum, developed as a summer course for the Young Scholars Program at The Ohio State University-Columbus, are as follows: (1) enable students to develop an understanding of the concept of a system; (2) help students gain an appreciation of the value of systems; (3) develop skills in working with systems; (4) expand skills in doing science; and (5) explore science as a field of study. Background information is organized into the following sections: (1) Safety in Systems; (2) Engineering a Bridge; (3) The Ultimate Survey; (4) Genetics; and (5) Toxic Wastes in Systems. Activities and field trips are intertwined in this two-week unified science course that also includes an opening section about learning styles. Among the topics for the activities are laboratory safety, making carbon dioxide, bridge building, survey research, limiting toxic waste mobility, and identifying human genetic traits. Data sheets are also included for many of the activities. (DDR)
