Inspired by the Born to Engineer video from Dr Eleanor Stride, an engineer who is developing a treatment for cancer that encloses cancer-treating drugs in bubbles, this resource supports students to increase their understanding of engineering in a food science context, looking at how bubbles are formed, through practical investigation in food lessons.
This video accompanies the resource. Dr Eleanor Stride is developing a treatment for cancer that encloses cancer treating drugs in bubbles that can be directed by magnetic fields to the cancer site before releasing the drug using ultrasound.
