Photosynthesis

This multipart animation series explores the process of photosynthesis and the structures that carry it out.

Exploring Biomass Pyramids

This interactive module allows students to collect and analyze data from a virtual river to construct biomass and energy pyramids.

“Fixing” Gene Expression

In this hands-on activity, students review the steps of eukaryotic gene expression and learn how this knowledge can be used to treat different genetic conditions. The activity reinforces concepts covered in the Click & Learn “Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine.”

Seed Dispersal in Tropical Forests

This activity accompanies the video Seed Dispersal and Habitat Fragmentation. Students use data from published studies to understand patterns of seed dispersal and apply these ideas to the design of a conservation area.

Modeling Food Webs in Darién, Panama

In this activity, students use cards to build model food webs and evaluate how ecological disturbances affect each trophic level using information from the citizen science website WildCam Darién.

Stalking the Genetic Basis of a Trait

This activity supports the film Popped Secret: The Mysterious Origin of Corn. Students analyze data on the expression of the tb1 gene to explain how variations in this gene played a role in the evolution of corn.

Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine

This interactive module uses the central dogma as a model for exploring how modern molecular biology technologies can be used to treat different genetic conditions.

Seed Dispersal and Habitat Fragmentation

This video follows scientists studying the seeds that brown spider monkeys disperse in a tropical forest of Colombia in order to inform and improve reforestation efforts.
