The last 100 years has seen the development of a vast array of new chemicals that have changed the world around us – the paints for our cars, the plastics to pack our food in, the red dyes on the MacDonald’s fries packet, the batteries for our cell phones, the yellow dyes we give our hens to make sure they lay yellow-yoked eggs, and so on, and so on… The problem is that every day we are all exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of different chemicals from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. The question is what are all these chemicals doing to us and should we be worried?<br>

-
Nutrigenomics is the study of the response of humans to food. Genomic, proteomic and metabolomic approaches are used in this work. The goal of nutrigenomics is to develop foods that can be matched to individual human genotypes to benefit the health of the individual.<br>The workshop will allow students to explore the FOLATE issue and find out how nutrigenomics can help society understand issues such as this.

The workshop has been developed and will be co-presented by LENScience teachers and scientists from the Department of Nutrition at the University of Auckland.<br>Schools will be provided with potential tasks for AS90769 and AS90714 based on this context.

LENScience National Education Events

LENScience National Education Events are student programmes arranged to coincide with national science events, international conferences and visiting scientists. Programmes bring students and scientists together, are curriculum linked and in most cases supported with teacher professional development.

National Education Events 2010

Event 2: Chemicals in our food – how do they get there and what are they doing to you?

The last 100 years has seen the development of a vast array of new chemicals that have changed the world around us – the paints for our cars, the plastics to pack our food in, the red dyes on the MacDonald’s fries packet, the batteries for our cell phones, the yellow dyes we give our hens to make sure they lay yellow-yoked eggs, and so on, and so on… The problem is that every day we are all exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of different chemicals from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. The question is what are all these chemicals doing to us and should we be worried?

The workshop has been developed and will be co-presented by LENScience teachers and scientists from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Canterbury.

National Education Events 2011

Event 1: Year 11 Science: Diabetes - An Issue For My Community

New Zealand is currently experiencing an epidemic of Type 2 diabetes, driven mainly by the increasing numbers of people who are overweight and obese. In New Zealand the epidemic most severely affects Māori and Pasifika peoples. In Term 2, 2011 we will be running a workshop for Year 11 students on this current and relevant issue.
This event will also provide support to teachers in delivering the Year 11 module Science and Society: Diabetes - an issue for my community

 More information will follow in Term 1, 2011.
