As Charlotte uses her web to communicate, the students will also create a web to send a small message. The students will learn how a spider creates its web, and about the different types of webs spiders make. With this knowledge, the students will design and create their own web and incorporate a message.
Sound Booth Construction
Students explore the sound dampening ability of numerous materials by designing and prototyping model sound booths. As a result, students learn about how sound is reflected, absorbed and travels through various materials, thus giving them an overview of sound dampening, energy absorption and sound propagation in the context of engineering. Students also create blueprints and document their findings in a formal lab report.
Preparation of Mammalian Meiotic Chromosomes and Spermatozoa/Obtaining Early Mammalian Embryos and P
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in reproductive and developmental biology, including student outlines, instructors notes, and suggested questions for laboratory reports.
Personal Behavior and Partner's Sexual History:a Simulation of the Spread of HIV
In this hands-on simulation students evaluate factors associated with the spread of HIV. Each student begins the simulation with an "uninfected" solution. They sequentially mix their solution with a variable number of solutions representing potential mates, some of which contain an antigen used to represent HIV. Students evaluate each individual's final solution with a modified ELISA procedure to screen for the antigen simulating HIV. They then use these results to reconstruct the spread of HIV
Immunofluorescence of Cytoskeletal Proteins
This resource provides an introduction for students to the techniques of immunofluorescence.

Weather or Not - Climate
In this video from WVIZ Cleveland, explore the relationship between the sun and the earth. Learn about the earth's axis tilt, spin, and rotation to discover how they affect climate.
Getting to the Point
In this lesson, students learn how to determine location by triangulation. We describe the process of triangulation and practice finding your location on a worksheet, in the classroom, and outdoors.
Learning Light's Properties
Students learn the basic properties of light the concepts of light absorption, transmission, reflection and refraction, as well as the behavior of light during interference. Lecture information briefly addresses the electromagnetic spectrum and then provides more in-depth information on visible light. With this knowledge, students better understand lasers and are better prepared to design a security system for the mummified troll.
The difference between an architect and an engineer is sometimes confusing because their roles in building design can be similar. Students experience a bit of both professions by following a set of requirements and meeting given constraints as they create a model parking garage. They experience the engineering design process first-hand as they design, build and test their models. They draw a blueprint for their design, select the construction materials and budget their expenditures. They also te
How Much Heat Will It Hold?
Students relate thermal energy to heat capacity by comparing the heat capacities of different materials and graphing the change in temperature over time for a specific material. Students learn why heat capacity is an important property of thermal energy that engineers use in many applications.
