Evolution of Ant-Mimicking Beetles

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that explored the evolutionary origins of parasitic beetles that mimic army ants.

Red Tattoo

This activity explores an image of tattoo ink particles inside cells, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about the structure and color of human skin.

Sodium Channel Evolution in Electric Fish

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how gene duplication contributed to the evolution of electric fish.

Why Two Heads?

This activity explores images of planarians regenerating missing body parts, which serve as phenomena for learning about cell division and differentiation.

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.

Evolution Course

This asynchronous course is designed to deepen educators' content knowledge in evolution, especially regarding content appropriate for teaching at the high school level. 

Root Movement

This activity explores images of plant cells and structures, which serve as phenomena for learning about how plants respond to stimuli.

Ebola: Disease Detectives

This hands-on activity allows students to analyze DNA sequences of Ebola viruses. Students use these sequences to track the virus’s spread during the 2013–2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Genetic Mutations and Disease

This interactive module explores how mutations arise in germline and somatic cells. It also shows how these mutations can lead to genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and cancer.

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.
