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.

Cell Division and Cancer Risk

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how random mutations during cell division can contribute to cancer.

Interactive Assessment for The Birth and Death of Genes

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes, which illustrates how gene duplications and mutations have led to remarkable physiological adaptations in Antarctic fish.

Mutations in Cancer

This video provides an overview of the types of genes that, when mutated, can lead to the development of cancer.

Activity for The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa

This activity explores conservation biology topics presented in the short film The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa. This film tells the story of Tonga Torcida, a young man who discovers his passion for science in the newly revitalized Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.

The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa

This film is set in war-torn Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique, a protected area that has been the subject of a large-scale restoration project. The film tells the story of a young man from the local community who discovers a passion for science after meeting world-renowned biologist E.O.

Earth Systems Activity

This activity guides students through building a conceptual model of how carbon dioxide affects Earth’s climate.

Cancer as a Genetic Disease

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how understanding the mutations that cause cancer can guide the development of targeted drug therapies.

How To Find a Dinosaur

In this video, Tyler Lyson describes and demonstrates how he and other paleontologists uncover fossils from prehistoric animals, including dinosaurs.

Molecular Genetics of Color Mutations in Rock Pocket Mice

In these activities, students transcribe and translate portions of the rock pocket mouse Mc1r gene to further explore the genetic variations responsible for different coat colors as described in the short film Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection and Adaptation.
