VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see a day in the life of a Biostatistician.
STEP 1: Play this Peppered Moths Natural Selection Game. As you play, gather evidence to explain that organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase compared to organisms without this trait.
STEP 2: Analyze your results. What was the advantageous trait among the peppered moths? Why?
STEP 3: Now read about the actual experiment that was conducted on these moths by Dr. Kettlewell here.
STEP 4: What parts of his experiment were similar to yours? What was different? How does this relate to the career of biostatistician?
STEP 5: Share your findings in the Student Showcase to build your resume as a biostatistician!
