- Oct 3/4 – Immune System Presentations
- Oct 13/14 – Looong Test (from Vertebrate Circulation til the Immune System)
- Oct 15 – Mythbusters Project Submission (upload and send me the links :D)
(one team is composed of 2 or 4 lab groups, details in the Downloads section)
- Create a 5-10 minute presentation that will satisfactorily explain the assigned concepts by relating these with a non-biological defense scenario (computer games, fantasy/real wars, etc.).
- This may take any form except for straight-out reporting. You can use storytelling, comic strips, skits, and games. You may involve the whole class in your presentation.
- Presentations will be done on the last meeting of next week (or during a make-up period if your last meeting falls on Sept 30). Prepare a five-question quiz and submit it on the day of the presentation.
- This will be graded according to the following rubric: content and accuracy – 20 points, creativity – 6 points, groupwork – 4 points for a total of 30 points of your class activities grade.

- Scientific basis/procedures/processes to be used in testing the notion (experiment? demonstration? literature survey? interview with an expert?
- 3 reliable references (scientific journals, printed materials)
- Chosen medium (video/animation/presentation/poster/website)
Due to popular demand, BeLiKNa will have a joint Mythbusters screening at the ASTB AVR this Friday starting from the first UB onwards. You are all invited to attend. 😀
