How I Use It
I use this with my medical career explorations class. Students who are considering surgery love the Virtual Knee Replacement surgery. The visuals are really nice but move a little slowly. I have used the stem cell resources in my regular Biology classes but then we switched to using the simulations on the University of Utah Learn Genetics site that address our student misconceptions more directly.
My Take
EdHeads focuses more on science processes than on science content. This is great to help students see how science is done. It also helps kids to have simulated career experiences that normally would not be possible.
