How Can I Teach with This Tool?

Biofab Explorer is a website that offers an in-depth exploration of the biofabrication process, the science behind it, the applications for medicine, and the career paths available in the field. The site is best used for students who wish to explore the topic of biofabrication as an independent study or who  want to learn more about where various STEM fields can lead as a career. It could even be used as inspiration for a science fair topic or presentation.

The site has a section dedicated to how teachers can use the site for independent study or career explorations for their students. It includes information on the curriculum standards that can be applied.

The site is well organized and contains a lot of information on the subject, though, at times, the materials can seem a little corporate or like they are making a pitch for support. Overall, students who are interested in the topic will find a lot to explore, and it makes a good resource for an independent study topic or to learn about STEM careers in the field.

Overall Rating
Engagement

Biofab Explorer, a specialized website focusing on one specific topic, provides straightforward information for students to explore, though it's a bit commercial.

Pedagogy

Biofab Explorer would best be used to support an independent study unit or a career exploration module, and it provides resources for teachers for that purpose.

Support

All the information is presented in a website, so little support is required to navigate the materials. Most videos are short and have closed-captioning.
