What's Included

This course establishes the foundations of modern biology for highly-motivated grade 12 students by learning how the basic building blocks of life give rise to biological form and function. We will be exploring cellular dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson's, Huntington's and Alzheimer's diseases. As we delve deeper into cellular complexity by examining physical symptoms, underlying genetics, molecular cascades and physiological pathways, we will also investigate bioengineering tools for potential therapeutic options. Co-Requisite: SBI4U or SCH4U

About This Organizer

The Engineering Student Outreach Office (ESOO), created in Fall 2009, manages and administers the core outreach programs offered by the Faculty. We act as the central unit for outreach activities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education to a wide audience. We design and deliver programs centrally, and coordinate the activities by other entities including student organizations, Faculty members, and Departments. The vast majority of outreach activities supported by ESOO are pre-university programming.

The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is committed to inspiring youth within the community and across the world through outreach programming that focuses on engineering and applied sciences. These programs range from summer live-in programs to weekend courses during the fall and spring terms.
