Students will discover how many millions of signals their bodies give off every day, and how scientists are using those signals to build a new form of nano-medicine called “lab-on-a-chip” that could be used in the near future to diagnose and detect illnesses in patients before symptoms ever appear. Students will even get the chance to use their very own “lab-on-a-chip” to test and diagnose a patient and experience how useful this tiny technology will be in the future. Duration: 60 minutes Requirements: Requires a room with a sink and a whiteboard.
