In this video we can see many different types of fishes. They are all so
beautiful. Another wonderful thing is that each of the fishes are named
and so we can understand the fishes much better. Really amazing how
these fishes are created.
Swamps and Such - Natures Kidneys
This video series from WOSU Public Media uses the example of a wetland to explain the structure and functions of ecosystems and how ecosystems change over time. In these videos meet wetland scientist Dan Fink who hosts the program and examines the types of communities of plants, animals, birds and fish that abound in wetlands, the process of photosynthesis, and the complex relationship between water and productivity. Developed in collaboration with The Ohio State University Olentangy River Wetla

Where Do You Get Your Energy
Cells extract energy from sugar to produce ATP, the molecular fuel that powers all life processes. This interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium delves into the processes that enable cells to unlock the energy contained in the foods we consume. We often use the term "energy" as an informal shorthand for our ability to stay alert and complete tasks. In fact, the presence of energy-rich molecules and our cells' ability to obtain, process, and use this energy is critical to life.
Lasers are more than just science fiction. Learn about lasers, how they work and how they are classified in this short, computer-animated video. The following key concepts will be briefly covered: lasers, laser technology, atoms, energizing atoms, energy states, photons, mediums and medium types, how lasers focus photons, and laser classifications.
Edgar Allan Poe's "The Bells"
As the poem begins, a group of people in a two-horse sleigh ride through a snowy landscape. "The Bells" is recited by British actor Basil Rathbone, as drawings and photographs of various types of bells and bell towers float across the screen, adding to the imagery of the poem.

Our World: Snowflakes
Snowflakes are actually a history of what was happening in the atmosphere as the snowflake formed and fell to the ground. Find out how you can help NASA scientists study different types of snowflakes to learn about the atmosphere and changes in climate. (04:15)
Compare and Contrast Warm and Cold Fronts
In weather, fronts are defined as the boundaries between different air masses. Depending on the direction of movement and the characteristics of the air involved, different types of fronts form. In this visualization from McDougal Littell/TERC, see movement of warm and cold fronts as well as the characteristic clouds that are generated by each.
Personal Computer Mouse Care & Cleaning Tips

3-D animation shows the uptake of oxygen by the red blood cells at the alveoli. Shows how hemoglobin binds to the oxygen to transport it through the circulatory system to the tissues. Grades 7-12. 3:09 min.
DNA Molecular Structure
This 3D scientific animation dynamically show a zoom in from a group of dividing cells to a close-up of a DNA molecule. No voice. Grades 5-12. 39 sec.
How a Virus Works
This narrated animation explains what a virus is and how it functions. It relates the way a virus works to nanotechnology. The human immune system fights an infection, like a virus, using various types of cells. The body has to adapt to infections and the dead cells are carried to the lymph nodes.
In this video adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how the common wood frog survives the cold winter. Wood frogs are found in the northern United States and Canada and must endure freezing cold temperatures for parts of the year. In order to survive the cold, they have a special adaptation—they are able to freeze solid without damaging their cells. Sugar acts like a natural antifreeze in their bodies, allowing them to spend the winter frozen and then resume function in the spring. Run time 03:3
