Big Picture

Produced by the Wellcome Trust, the Big Picture magasine was aimed at post-16 students and explored contemporary issues within biology and medicine. Each contains accessible information, that is directly relevant to the curriculum, along with supporting resources such as stimulus materials, activity sheets and presentations. These can be used to illustrate how science works, science in society and also allow the issues to be tackled within the classroom. A wide range of topics are covered in this collection. For example, issues such as addiction, climate change, nanoscience, drug development, sex and gender, obesity and evolution.
