Big Picture: Fat


Your kit contains a free copy of Big Picture, a free and impartial educational resource by the Wellcome Trust that explores the innovations and implications of cutting-edge science. It sets out to connect modern biomedical science with its ethical and social challenges (including looking at how research impacts on individuals) and place bioscience research in a historical and cultural context.

This issue is all about fat, which is a great starting point for investigations in your classroom about our food, our health and our planet. 

There's loads more resources and content about fat on the Big Picture website.

We hope you enjoy your copy of Big Picture.
