The Structures of Life
This site takes us into the world of structural biology -- a branch of molecular biology that focuses on the shape of nucleic acids and proteins (the molecules that do most of the work in our bodies). Learn about the structures and roles of proteins, tools used to study protein shapes, how proteins are used in designing new medications (for AIDS and arthritis), and what structural biology reveals about all life processes. Find out about careers in biomedical research.

Software Engineering for Web Applications
Teaches basics of designing a dynamic web site with a database back end, including scripting languages, cookies, SQL, and HTML with the goal of building such a site as the main (group) project Emphasizes computer-human interface and the graphical display of information. Crucial to the project is the identification of a client with whom the group must work with throughout the month, designing specifications, implementing them, reviewing and evaluating, and testing. This is a real-life client who

ÉvaTic : une base de connaissances sur l'évaluation des environnements d'apprentissage reposant su
Depuis quelques années, l'apprentissage en ligne a progressé de façon remarquable. Si les pratiques deviennent de plus en plus performantes, la littérature consacrée à l'évaluation demeure fragmentée. Pourtant toute la question de l'évaluation de l'efficacité de ces nouveaux modèles demeure incontournable compte tenu des enjeux stratégiques et des sommes investies. Cet article présente une base de connaissance conçue pour favoriser le partage de pratiques variées. La base de con

Virtual Maths - Numbers, Find the angle quiz
Interactive simulation quiz, 8 questions, Find the Angle using the simulation and enter the answers
Students learn about stress and strain by designing and building beams using polymer clay. They compete to find the best beam strength to beam weight ratio, and learn about the trade-offs engineers make when designing a structure.
Exploring the Moon
This is a teacher's guide for learning about lunar geology and regolith (loose material on the moon's surface), distance to the moon, Apollo landing sites, and life support systems. Lessons focus on calculating the distance between scale models of earth and the moon, designing a spacecraft for travel to and from the moon, the locations and geology of the six Apollo landing sites, and calculating the diameter of the moon using proportions.
Draw Your Own Visualization
The purpose of this activity is to learn about visualizations by designing and drawing one. Students draw a visualization based either on their interests and ideas about the world or based on actual GLOBE data. They are asked to justify the design choices they make and to interpret the visualizations of their peers. Intended outcomes are that students learn to identify and communicate important patterns in a dataset by drawing a visualization, and begin to interpret those patterns. Students sele
Central to good science are accurate observations, testable hypotheses, well-designed experiments or other tests, and reasonable data analyses. The purpose of this activity is to introduce the basics of designing and analyzing experiments.
