Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Winogradsky Column: Microbial Ecology in a Bottle

This interactive module consists of a virtual Winogradsky column, which can be used to explore the diversity of microbes, microbial metabolic strategies, and geochemical gradients found in sediments.

Population Dynamics

This interactive simulation allows students to explore two classic mathematical models that describe how populations change over time: the exponential and logistic growth models.

Survey Methods

This interactive module explores methods used to survey large animal populations, and what they have revealed about the current state of the African elephant population.

Interactive Assessment for The Day the Mesozoic Died

Several questions are embedded within the short film The Day the Mesozoic Died, which tells the story of the scientific quest to explain one of the greatest, long-standing scientific mysteries: the sudden disappearance of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.

Gorongosa Timeline

This interactive timeline explores the history of Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.

Exploring Transitional Fossils

This interactive module allows students to examine fossils of fish, tetrapods (four-limbed animals), and their transitional forms.

BCR-ABL

This model shows the structure of the protein BCR-ABL, which causes a type of cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia.

Gleevec-Resistant BCR-ABL

This model shows a mutated form of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL that is resistant to the drug Gleevec.
