Cancer-a report on a specific cancer i.e. leukemia and perhaps management, treatments and or how it effects the body,
The report component of the course will be a scientific report based on a specific scientific topic i.e. a relevant scientific topic of interest or one relevant to today's society. A selection of topics will be available on LearnOnline and will also be discussed in greater detail in tutorials.
Try to decide on a topic that interests you or is one that is related to the area of education that you are interested in pursuing (and still grounded in something scientific). For example; if it is human health that you might want to gain entry into you could choose a topic related to that i.e. about exercise programs, obesity issues or the use of drugs in sport. If it is nursing or midwifery you could choose a topic related to; In vitro fertilisation (IVF), different genetic diseases in babies/children, cloning and the issues of embryonic stem cells or about breast feeding. If it is about the health sciences you could look at; new drugs or health treatments, new testing techniques for diseases. Other scientific areas you could look at include; more powerful lasers or x-ray scanning machines, different space programs or ideas about the cosmos and galaxy around us. If it is chemistry or other biological sciences you could look at; new technologies developed to view the world at the nano-scale (or even the atomic scale) and things being developed with nanotechnology and applications about that. Environmental sciences could investigate; ways to treat waste-water, new technologies to reduce pollution or developing more environmentally friendly products. All of the above are only examples to give you an idea of a few of the scientific areas that you could progress into and provide a couple of examples of the types of topics that might relate to those areas and hence be more interesting to investigate and write a scientific report on.
Some other example topics for the scientific report could be:
