    Project
    Students will do a BLAST and learn about how the mutated protein affects cells, organs, and organ systems and those systems overall impact on homeostasis. The example students will use is sickle cell disorder.

    Experiment
    This is an introductory lesson into how to design an experiment. Students will practice writing a hypothesis. Students will create procedures to conduct their own experiment. Students will create a data table for their experimental data. Students will write a conclusion that has them focus on evidence from their experiment.
