How Science Works

This interactive module allows students and educators to document, annotate, and reflect upon scientific research processes.

WildCam Darién

This interactive module connects to an online citizen science platform for identifying animals in photos collected by trail cameras in Darién and Soberanía National Parks in Panama.

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.

Survey Methods

This interactive module explores methods used to survey large animal populations, and what they have revealed about the current state of the African elephant population.

WildCam Lab

This interactive module allows students to investigate their own ecological questions using data collected by trail cameras in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.

WildCam Gorongosa

This interactive module connects to an online citizen science platform for identifying animals in photos collected by trail cameras in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.

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.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

This tutorial describes the symbiosis between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and bioluminescent bacteria.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

This tutorial describes how bacteria communicate by a process known as quorum sensing, as shown through a series of experiments involving genetically engineered bioluminescent bacteria.

Electrical Activity of Neurons

This tutorial describes how neurons generate action potentials, and how scientists measure neuronal activity and record the firing of individual neurons.

Cells of the Immune System

This tutorial provides an overview of the immune system, concentrating on the roles played by B and T lymphocytes, and on the antigen-presentation system.
