Modeling the Structure of DNA

In this activity, students build a paper model of DNA and use their model to explore key structural features of the DNA double helix. This activity can be used to complement the short film The Double Helix.

Ocean Acidification

In this hands-on activity, students simulate the effects of decreasing pH caused by rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Resistance to Coral Bleaching

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study that tested whether corals can become more resistant to bleaching.

Exploring Biomes in Gorongosa National Park

The activity introduces students to the concept of biomes, using Gorongosa National Park as a case study. Part of the activity involves exploring the Gorongosa National Park Interactive Map.

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.

How Do Fibers Form?

In this activity, students construct models of sickle cell hemoglobin fibers inside red blood cells to illustrate how changes in the structure of a protein can affect cell shape, as described in the short film The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans.
