This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 32   Biotechnology
This way for Group 33 - Cells

Not all living things are large organisms like plants & animals. What characterises micro-organisms and in which ways are they an important influence on our lives?
Big Idea
- What are the risks and benefits of using cells and cell processes?

Science - Interactive Guidelines Curriculum for Excellence - draft outcomes
CfE  (Energy in the Environment - Energy transfer) (Level Third) - SCN 308F - I can contribute to the design of an investigation to show the effects of different factors on the rate of aerobic respiration and share my findings with the others in the class.
CfE  (Life & Cells - Biotechnology) (Level Second) - SCN 227P - From a variety of activities I can show how microscopic living things can be used to produce and break down foods.
CfE  (Life & Cells - Biotechnology) (Level Third) - SCN 317P - In my group I can contribute to the design of investigations on the growth of microbes and debate the risks and benefits of their different roles. I can give a simple explanation on how some cells can be used therapeutically.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Third) - SCN 332BB - Through research and group discussion, I have contributed to an evaluation of a media item with regard to its scientific content.
