Could you give us some insight about this project? Is is a project there you just need to educate your class? Do you have to do research?

I personally LOVE the endocrine system -- it is so fascinating. If you just need to educate students on a topic regarding the endocrine system, I would choose frequently seen endocrine disorders in the hospital (diabetes is the main one obviously). Or heck, even more fun would be to educate your classmates on all the different types of diabetes (there are many different types out there -- other than just Type 1 and 2). I think that would be extremely interested to students because many people don't know of the other types. Perhaps you could elaborate on each type and just provide the basic pathophysiology, and perhaps you could even throw in some nursing interventions or something.

boy! does this bring back memories. three of us did a skit on diabetes in nursing school. we made prison outfits with black and white stripped material with numbers representing blood sugar results on the backs. we drew them on with magic markers. the skit was about these three guys (girls, actually) sitting around in a jail cell talking about how they got there. we managed to work in all the symptoms of diabetes that we got "caught for" and how the dm had changed our lives. one of us had the bright idea to get a couple of packs of kerlex and wrap it around one foot a couple of times and pour some green dye on it to simulate gangrene (hey! we were students) and went through this sick-o story about loosing a toe. the second girl wore dark glasses to indicate she was blind from her diabetes. as a finale i started to have symptoms of an insulin reaction and revealed the blood sugar on the back of my outfit was "50" and i was given what the others had on hand which was some candy. we also passed out tootsie rolls to the rest of the class. feed the masses! the class was laughing by the time we got done and we got an "a". we had a lot of fun with it and the actual content part of it that included the signs and symptoms and some of the treatment was really not that difficult in terms of the information. most of the work was in getting the outfits made and working up the skit.

i love the subject of diabetes because there is so much you can do with it. if you are not a thespian why don't you do something on the new insulins and insulin products that are on the market? there is some really cool stuff out there that you may not be seeing in the hospital setting yet because of the expense. you should be able to get pictures of the stuff from websites. if you act fast, you can get in touch with local drug reps before the end of the week and see if they can front you a couple of free samples you can use for class demonstration. you should be able to get the numbers of these reps from doctor's offices or the pharmacists at the hospital. make sure you tell them you are a student and you are giving a talk as a school project. they are usually very accommodating.
