Keep it Balanced

In this activity students learn about diabetes, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Bernardo Houssay, and the endocrine system. Students then play a card game with the goal of modeling the normal functioning of the endocrine system.

The content and layout were developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center as part of Johnson & Johnson’s WiSTEM²D initiative (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design), using a template provided by FHI 360 and JA Worldwide. This series includes a suite of interactive and fun, hands-on activities for girls (and boys), ages 5–18, globally.
