Searching Genbank part of Examples
An active problem-based assignment that uses the Genbank database to teach the basics of molecular biology and molecular evolution
Plant Pest Control part of Examples
This learning experience introduces participants to scientific inquiry, hypothesis formation, experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation.
Ocean Circulation part of Examples
Students view and analyze buoy, satellite, temperature vs. depth data to learn about ocean circulation and how is related to atmospheric circulation.
Reflection and Absorption of Light part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to a light sensor and temperature probe to explore the reflection and absorption of light.
Bioinformatics part of Examples
This exercise contains two interrelated modules that introduce students to modern biological techniques in the area of Bioinformatics, which is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. The need for Bioinformatics has arisen from the recent explosion of publicly available genomic information, such as that resulting from the Human Genome Project.
Annotating Change in Satellite Images part of Examples
During this exercise, students compare a series of satellite images taken 3-4 years apart to investigate the effects of human land use and annotate the images using ImageJ software.
Comparing Sunscreens part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to an ultra-violet sensor to compare the relative blocking power of different SPF sunscreens for the UVB region of the solar spectrum.
