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 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.
