Announcing: The Health in Our Hands Simulations Collection

For the convenience of teachers and other interested users, all of the Concord Consortium simulations related to the Health in Our Hands curriculum have been collected in one handy location on the Concord website.

This set of simulations is used in the Health in Our Hands curriculum to study how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms. Links to classroom materials are also included. The simulations can also be used independently from the curriculum to investigate gene-environment interactions in afterschool or summer settings or just for fun!

One of the simulations, How does food affect the health of sand rats?, was developed in partnership with the Concord Consortium especially for the curriculum.  Gene-environment Interaction: How does food affect the health of sand rats?
