Photosynthesis

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

Why Two Heads?

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

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.

Synchronized Division

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

Coral Bleaching

This animation zooms into a coral reef to explore the tiny animals that build reefs, the photosynthetic algae inside their cells, and the damaging process of coral bleaching.

Lactose Intolerance: Fact or Fiction

In this activity, students evaluate and discuss statements about the evolutionary relationship between milk consumption and lactose tolerance discussed in the short film Making of the Fittest: Got Lactase? The Co-evolution of Genes and Culture.

Milk: How Sweet Is It?

In this activity, students simulate a lactose tolerance test, similar to the one shown in the short film The Making of the Fittest: Got Lactase? The Co-evolution of Genes and Culture, to determine which samples contain the lactase enzyme.
