Evolution, Natural Selection and Speciation part of Examples
In this out of class tutorial, students explore several examples of natural selection and speciation.

Subject: Environmental Science:Ecosystems:Evolution, Biology:Evolution

Translation simulation part of Examples
This module introduces students to the basics behind translation of a messenger RNA sequence into protein. In addition to text and movies, there are interactive shockwave animations that allow students to move ribosomes and tRNAs to perform translation.

Subject: Biology:Molecular Biology

Blue Skies & Sunsets part of Examples
This conceptual model explains why skies are blue and sunsets are red.

Subject: Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Atmospheric structure and composition, Solar and terrestrial radiation

This lecture/activity on force will further a students' understanding of forces on an object, as well as the difference between a balanced and unbalanced forces.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics

An Introduction to and Investigation on Keystone Species part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a project in which students research keystone species and report on specific species to the class.

Subject: Biology:Ecology

Best Edible Model of a Cell Contest part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is designed to help students understand the structures and functions of the cell by building a model. The students must also do an oral presentation explaining their model to the class.
