So is it nature not nurture after all? | Science | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    There are few areas of science more fiercely contested than the issue of what makes us who we are. Are we products of our environments or the embodiment of our genes? Is nature the governing force behind our behaviour or is it nurture? While almost everyone agrees that it's a mixture of both, there has been no end of disagreement about which is the dominant influence.

Monday's Lesson: Demystifying Punnett Squares with ConnectedBio - Concord Consortium - 0 views

  •  
    An innovative new breeding simulation helps reveal genetic ratios in offspring. With the heredity level of the ConnectedBio Multi-Level Simulation (MLS), students breed pairs of mice with different fur colors and observe the phenotypic ratios in the resulting offspring. The goal of this activity is to demystify the science behind Punnett Squares and encourage students to explore data and statistical representations in genetics and heredity.

THE RESEARCH SAFARI - Home - 1 views

  •  
    So you have a research assignment. Do you know where to begin? There is so much information out there on the web that it can be hard to know where to start and what path to take through the 'jungle of information'. The Research Safari is designed to help you do just that. Follow the information / inquiry process described here to help you work through your research task. There are also lots of great resources, tools and information that will help give your assignment that WOW factor. The Research Safari will help you to answer the following questions: What am I actually being asked to do for my assignment? What do I already know about the topic? Where am I going to get the information I need? How do I know that the information is accurate or 'authentic' (not fake)? Which are the best websites to use? ​What is the best way for me to present my assignment? How can I make this the best assignment ever?

Flinn At Home Science Education - 0 views

  •  
    Flinn Scientific has launched a website with an extensive amount of resources specifically developed to help teachers, students and parents continue their science education journey - even if that learning is taking place outside the classroom or laboratory environment. Examples of some of the resources we have developed: Free video labs with related teacher and student guides to help students at home continue making progress on key science topics More than 40 free, easy and fun-to-do activities that use commonly available materials to encourage science investigation in the home Flinn's unique digital learning solutions to facilitate seamless science learning. These online solutions are the perfect way to efficiently scale curriculum in an at-home setting - also free of charge On call scientists: over the coming days, we will be releasing video based lab experiments conducted by our scientific staff and broadcast from our studio with live events. As part of each live event, we will have our full team of scientists available to answer questions from teachers and students participating online - also free of charge and highly interactive and engaging. Be sure to check out our online calendar indicating the live schedule

Outbreak! - National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science (NCCSTS) - 0 views

  •  
    "This case study uses a PowerPoint presentation to guide students through two activities designed to teach them about the basics of coronavirus diagnosis and transmission. The first activity involves a set of five "clicker questions" that students answer using either a personal response system, online polling application, or show of hands as they consider symptoms and test results of a hypothetical patient. The second activity is an outbreak simulation in which students consider the spread of a pathogen in various geographical settings and from different perspectives. Students work together to draft a list of precautions that could be taken to limit the spread of the disease and minimize healthy individuals' risk of contracting it. The simulation is designed for a biology lesson pertaining to outbreaks. Although coronavirus is used as the model, the concepts of disease transmission and prevention covered in this case are relevant to many diseases."

Making Connections - National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science (NCCSTS) - 0 views

  •  
    "This case study introduces students to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and its underlying genetics, cell biology, and some of the associated biochemical pathways.  DMD is an X-linked disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting due to the absence of a protein called dystrophin, which in turn causes degeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscle. There is currently no established cure for this disease.  The case follows the progress of "Casey," an undergraduate student who has just declared her biology major and is interested in expanding her scientific understanding of the different fields of biology. The case is organized in three parts: genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry, each exploring DMD through its unique lens. Throughout the case, Casey is presented with multiple outlets of information, including class lectures, direct e-mail interaction with a professor, scientific journals and websites, from which she (and any student engaged with the case) gathers knowledge about DMD."

DeafBlind Cajuns - National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science (NCCSTS) - 0 views

  •  
    "This modular case study tells the story of Dan and Annie, a married couple of Acadian ancestry who have a genetic form of deafblindness called Usher syndrome. They live in Southwest Louisiana, home of the largest population of DeafBlind citizens in the United States. Acadian Usher syndrome is caused by an allele of the USH1C gene that came to Louisiana with the first Acadian settlers from Canada who founded today's Cajun population. This allele's single nucleotide substitution creates an erroneous splice site that produces a defective cytoskeletal protein (harmonin) of the cochlear and vestibular hair cells and retinal photoreceptors. This splice site is the target of a promising gene therapy. The case study applies and connects Mendelian inheritance, chromosomes, cell division, vision and hearing, DNA sequences, gene expression, gene therapy and population genetics to a specific gene and its movement through generations of Dan and Annie's families.  After the introduction, each of the remaining sections can be used independently either for in-class team activities or out-of-class extensions or assignments over an entire year of introductory undergraduate biology.

    "We have found that the best way to keep a record of activity and ideas is to create a table with four columns-1) Activities we did, 2) Patterns or observations, what happened?, 3) What do you think caused these patterns or observations?, 4) How do these patterns help us think about the essential question or puzzling phenomenon?

Timelapse: Landsat Satellite Images of Climate Change, via Google Earth Engine - 0 views

  •  
    "That changed when NASA created the Landsat program, a series of satellites that would perpetually orbit our planet, looking not out but down. Surveillance spacecraft had done that before, of course, but they paid attention only to military or tactical sites. Landsat was a notable exception, built not for spycraft but for public monitoring of how the human species was altering the surface of the planet."
