    • Lesson plan 1: The use and limits of stem cells to cure diseasesGeneral information:Author of the lesson plan: Laurent MartorellSubject of the lesson: The use and limits of stem cells to cure diseases What are the limits of stem cells? Which diseases can be cured and what would need other methods?Age level of the students: 15-18 years oldXplore Health’s tools used: Video: Can you cure with cells? Video: Biotechnology and ethicsLink with different school This subject can be linked to various aspectssubjects/integration in the curriculum: of the curricula whenever a disease is involved or a treatment is applied.Can the topic be linked to different subjects inyour school? Does it fit to your curricula?Pre-knowledge required by students: Definition and concept of biotechnology, stem cell and DNASuggested background reading for Teachers’ guide: Background informationTeacher: The biotechnology revolution - 3 – Lesson plans
