Carb Counting: Diet & Diabetes Virtual Laboratory for Students

Nicole Brennan, Kay Stearns Bruening, Jane Burrell, Margaret A. Voss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Inspired by the inaccessibility of laboratory experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, we designed an at-home experiment on diet and diabetes for a high school (9th grade) life science course. It promotes active learning through an affordable experiment, embedded hyperlinks, and video content to make virtual learning exciting and accessible.
