The revolutionary new practice of STEM teach the related disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as one unit, emphasising their close relationship, rather than separately as in the past. In this biotechnology module, students explore basic concepts of cell structure, cell reproduction (mitosis and meiosis) and genetics, including DNA. Concepts of genetic engineering, including recombinant DNA, gene therapy, genetically engineered plants and the Human Genome Project are included.

Students demonstrate their understanding of these concepts by designing a hypothetical baby, deciding genetic characteristics and determining how they would manifest in a real person.

This binder and CD-ROM set holds the complete Chip Off the Old Block unit – Teacher’s Guide, containing background information, questions and answers, and classroom implementation instructions; Student Curriculum Module, the primary student text containing information, readings and instructions; and the Student Data and Response section, where students record and evaluate their work as they progress.

The CD-ROM contains PowerPoint presentations that serve as visual enhancements to the activities, and a complete copy of the contents of the binder in PDF form for ease of reproduction.
