Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This resource discusses how scientists and engineers study biological systems to develop artificial systems, in this case artificial olfaction. The sense of smell is extremely complex, and scientists working on artificial olfaction have had to study this biological system extensively to extract some basic principles upon which to build their devices. Disciplines of emphasis will involve biology, chemistry, electronics, and teamwork. Copyright 2005 International Technology Education Association
