Can a Computer Game Help Us Understand Diabetes?
Type: Expo Zone
Participants will use an online simulation to plan and carry out an investigation about diabetes using simulated sand-rats that can contract diabetes when fed sugary lab food. Participants can ask a question, identify sand rats by gender and genetic risk for diabetes, place rats in pens, and feed them sugary lab food or native plants. They can see the results in real time and analyze the data to answer their questions.
