Your Diet & Your DNA Simulation

Your Diet & Your DNA Simulation

Your Diet & Your DNA simulation centres on the food choices of two students and how these choices might be impacting their performance and health.

It uses the inquiry model to investigate in the laboratory how healthy and unhealthy diets can impact DNA health and what that can mean for short and long-term health, well-being and risk of disease, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The simulation can be used across the sciences to develop science inquiry skills and it also covers specific content that links to senior Biological Sciences and Health and Human Development curricular.
