biophysics for your body

Jul 23, 2012

The University of Missouri hosted a week-long science summer camp for central Missouri middle schoolers last week.  The camp, called “Biophysics and Your Body,” aimed to teach students how the study of physics relates to the biological functioning of the body.  Assistant professor of Physics Gavin King collaborated with faculty from the physics, education, and biochemistry departments to create a curriculum for the camp. King says the goal was to create a curriculum that teachers across the state can use.
