How Can a Computer Game Help Us Understand Diabetes?
Type: Expo Zone
This computer game helps people understand how our genes and the environment affect our health. 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. 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.
