This activity examines the history of biotechnology from 1920 to present day and its impact on human health. Students rotate through a series of ten stations to read about biotechnology achievements over the decades and answer questions at each station. The activity can be done similar to a web quest where students can use their computers to answer questions and learn more about each achievement. The activity’s format allows flexibility in classroom use.
