Cancer Cell Invasion

This activity explores an image of tumor cells invading muscle tissue, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cancer, mutations, and cell division.

Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study that investigated the role of p53 in cell cycle regulation.

What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

This activity complements the animated short video Seeing the Invisible. Students explore concepts related to relative size and scale using cards of cells and microorganisms.

Written in Chalk

This activity explores images of chalk formations and coccolithophores, which serve as phenomena for learning about the interactions between biological and geological processes.

Gorongosa's Water Cycle

This animation illustrates the main stages of the water cycle in Gorongosa National Park, an ecosystem that experiences both wet and dry seasons.

Coral Reefs and Global Warming

This activity allows students to use authentic scientific data to make claims about the threat of coral bleaching for reefs around the world.

Synchronized Division

This activity explores an image of early embryonic cells, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cell division and development.

Extreme Life of the Sea

In this talk, marine biologist Stephen Palumbi compares threats to biodiversity in the ocean to threats on land.

The Eukaryotic Cell Cycle and Cancer

This interactive module explores the phases, checkpoints, and protein regulators of the cell cycle. The module also shows how mutations in genes that encode cell cycle regulators can lead to the development of cancer.

Coral Bleaching

This animation zooms into a coral reef to explore the tiny animals that build reefs, the photosynthetic algae inside their cells, and the damaging process of coral bleaching.
