A comprehensive curriculum on the use of animal models in biomedical research. The curriculum/resource guide is designed to provide information for science teachers and other educators about the nature of biomedical research and the humane care and treatment of laboratory animals.
The long-term goals of the People and Animals curriculum are to stimulate, nurture and perpetuate interest, understanding and participation in biomedical sciences among students and educators, as well as to create awareness of the career opportunities in health care and health research.
The curriculum includes a comprehensive Reference Manual, a set of 159 color and black and white slides, a Discussion Guide, and a timeline poster of biomedical research advances.
WABRE has a very limited supply of the curriculum available this year for life science teachers in Wisconsin. The curriculum is also the focus of WABRE teacher workshops.
