Ever wonder how pollution and poisons may affect us? Or, how you can demonstrate to your students the dangers of smoking or alcohol? Teach toxicology to your students through fun, hands-on laboratory and computer-based activities. Many basic principles of toxicology and risk assessment were addressed, including dose-response, cluster illnesses, and the effects of individual variation on toxicological risk. The class contained a balance of lectures and fun hands-on activities that can easily be incorporated into existing curriculum.
