Why Two Heads?

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

BiomeViewer

This interactive module explores biomes, climate, biodiversity, and human impacts around the globe and at different times.

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.

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.

Synchronized Division

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

Planarian Regeneration and Stem Cells

This video discusses the remarkable regenerative capabilities of the planarian, and how biologist Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado uses them to study the biology of stem cells.

Salamander Limb Regeneration

This animation shows how salamanders can replace missing limb tissues with the help of cells similar to stem cells.

VEGF

This animation shows how tumors use the protein VEGF to recruit blood vessels.

Teaching Ecology Using Gorongosa National Park

This playlist can be used to teach several core topics in ecology by connecting students to actual research being conducted in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. It can be used in general high school biology and environmental science courses.
