Description of project
In our project, we will develop and evaluate an educational program for use in secondary education. The aim is to ensure a deep understanding regarding the daily behavior of organisms, the impact on the biological clock, and ultimately the consequences for health.
The goal is to stay close to the Biology curriculum as provided by the Dutch government. It is therefore important to combine the biological clock with the central nervous system, ecology and understanding biological rhythms in different organisms such as mammals, plants and insects.
To start off, we will focus on system thinking and conceptual modelling regarding the change and complexity of the biological clock.
The BioClock Consortium is funded by the NWA-ORC programme of the Dutch Research Council (NWO; project number 1292.19.077).
