Why White Mice? Improving Biological Literacy Through Animal History

Semester: Fall 2021

Presentation description

What are student perceptions of animal bodies in scientific research? How a student interacts with and understands animals can impact their capacity for learning and influence their future research. I believe there is a lack of understanding around animal research in undergraduate education that could be filled by highlighting animal history. This project looks at what information may be beneficial to include and how students respond to it.
