Description

World hunger is a global health crisis that affects millions world-wide and gives context for students to study proteins and nutrition. In this activity, students use a Bradford assay to collect data and design a treatment proposal for protein energy undernutrition (PEU). They will use an iterative engineering design approach to define the problem, create and test a prototype, and revise their solutions.
