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. This workshop is aimed at students and teachers using this as a context for learning in Year 11 Science. Resource material for teachers and students can be found on the&nbsp;[http://lens.auckland.ac.nz/index.php/Science_Research_Stories#Diabetes_and_Obesity_in_My_Community Diabetes and Obesity Research Context page]<br> <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.

LENScience Connect 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. There are a number of schools and universities that have offered to be regional venues for these National Education Events. Alternatively if your school has a satellite dish and decoder or is on the National Education Network, you can participate that way. For more information see the LENScience Connect Technology Information page.
