Live like an Animal
In this activity, students design an innovative human shelter that is inspired and informed by an animal structure. Each group is assigned an animal class, and they gather information about shelters used by the animals in that class. After researching the topic and brainstorming ideas, students build small prototypes (models) of the structures. Finally, they present their products, explaining what attribute of the animal structure influenced their design.
Brown seaweeds wedged in a rock crevice
There are thousands of different seaweeds. Brown algae is common in the cool waters of California. The seaweed has thick cellulose walls and appears shiny and wet. Seaweed is tolerable to wave action but needs some moisture to survive.
Blue whales were almost hunted to extinction until they were put under a protective law. Today, they are listed as an endangered species.
Blood moves to the internal structures of the body of Artemia
The heart pumps blood throughout the body. This blood carries oxygen, glucose, and other important nutrients to the cells of the body, where they are used to perform various functions.
Blood moves through the circulatory system
Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. Veins are blood vessels that carry blood to the heart. The circulatory system allows our organ systems to function by providing oxygen and other important nutrients required for metabolism, muscle contraction, and other functions.

Tissues are a collection of cells that act as a functional unit. In this case, cells make up the tissues of the arties and veins.

Japanese Gardens Project
Bowdoin College's Information Technology worked with Professor of Art History Emeritus Clif Olds to develop a website dedicated to the gardens of Japan, and more specifically to the historic gardens of Kyoto and its environs. The site is designed to provide the visitor with an opportunity to visit each garden, to move through or around it, to experience it through the medium of high-quality color images, and to learn something of its history.
