#MYPSci Criterion D: Refecting on the impacts of science. Enzymes Projects.

Grade 9 Students (MYP4) were asked to research about enzymes.
They could choose an application of an enzyme in industry or an enzymatic disease were science has found treatment or is trying to treat.
The project meant to follow MYP new criteria in Science D: Reflecting on the Impacts of Science.

Here some examples of what they produced:
Daniel did a good job creating a PowerPoint on the applications of lactase enzyme in industry. He then did a video whilst he was talking over his PowePoint to give more detatil information.
To fullfill all strands of Criterion D, Daniel should have worked on in-text referencing both for text and his figures. Overall quite a good job Daniel!

Zhi Feng decided to create a PowerPoint on the use of Pectinase in industry. He added sound buttons where he explained what it can be seen. Again a great job on the content but needs to wrok of the in-text referencing of that content and given credit to the figures (organising them) as the images appear.

Iona also talked over her PowerPoint recording herself as she did it. Her project is on Krabbe Disease. Overall a good job although a deeper evaluation of how Science interacts with a factor could have been included, and once more that in-text referencing.

Aurore also chose Krabbe Disease. She included all the information necessary directly on her Powerpoint so no additional voice was needed.
