The OML participated in SciREN, which aims to connect local STEM researchers and educators to foster the dissemination of current research and ultimately enhance the science literacy of today’s youth. Nicholas wrote an amazing lesson plan focusing on the structure and function of bone, including studying material properties, Wolff’s Law, and comparative bone anatomy of various animals.
If you’re interested in checking out the lesson, you can find it here: Structure and Function of Bone Activity. Any feedback would be very much appreciated, please email Stephanie or Nicholas.
Here are some photos of us in action!
