Bend, Twist and Break: Beyond the Laboratory
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that when scientists study fracture surfaces from controlled experiments to understand the resulting shapes and features, they can use their understanding to deduce what happened when they were not around to see the material fail or break. Further they can predict what will have to a larger or smaller piece of material under stress. This process is how scientists and engineers translate a lab experiment into a design for an airplane, bridge or even a bike frame.

Here, they take a look at some of the questions that go hand-in-hand with genetic cloning technologies. The site opens by telling kids that in the future, technologies like cloning may be very common and that some of the decisions we will need to make in coming years are hard. Then, they are asked to imagine that it is the year 2020 and to take a peek at what's on the minds of one futu
