Through numerous lessons and hands-on activities, students are introduced to the concept of an environment and the interactions within it. As they learn about natural and manmade environments, and renewable and non-renewable natural resources, they see how people use our natural resources and the many environmental issues in our world today. Students learn about solid waste and disposal, and its effects on our environment. They learn the importance of the concepts of reduce, reuse, recycle and c
Problem-Solving, Metrics, and Tools for Sustainability - Chapter Introduction
This chapter is devoted to a special collection of methods, measurements, tools, indicators, and indices that are used to illustrate the meaning of sustainability, to assess the comparative […]

An Analysis of Bone/Muscle Movement
By manipulating a simple kinematic model representing the leg and foot, students can get hands on information about the interaction of bones and muscles in humans. Having worked with the model, they then are able to predict and analyze the properties of bone/muscle systems in other vertebrates and understand how these systems have become modified during the course of evolution for a particular life style. By the end of the exercise, students have learned both traditional information (cellular st
Student Presentation #3
In this presentation, seven grad students talk about their collective objective based on Professor Niles research: to figure out how cellular networks function and the role that small molecules play in these networks through gene knockout, RNA interference studies, and hybird studies. RNA apatamers' main function is to bind to a specific molecule. This material is great for gene expression, can be developed invitro, can be expressed inside a cell, and is useful in exploring protein based network
Numerical Simulation of Magnetic Flux Emerging Through a Model Solar Atmosphere: Density, Magnetic F
This animation is one of a series depicting the results of a two-dimensional ideal magneto-hydrodynamic simulation of magnetic flux emerging through a solar atmosphere. The simulation has a resolution of 300x500 cells and a length scale of 16 Mm x 6.8 Mm. The simulation depicts 1730 seconds in the evolution of the model.
Birdsong Playback as a Tool for Teaching Animal Behavior
Animal behavior is often downplayed in general biology labs. Problems include where to deal with the topic in the syllabus, time constraints and special equipment needs, and the unpredictable nature of behavioral responses. Birdsong playback offers a solution to these problems. Birdsong relates well to several important conceptual areas of biology. Its acoustic features can be investigated easily using desktop computers, and it is a fairly reliable behavioral response obtainable in the field. Th

Christie Clark gets serenaded for Earth Day
Students from University Highlands elementary school performed an Earth Day song for B.C. premier Christy Clark in the Djavad Mowafaghian Courtyard at Blusson Hall. BC premier Christy Clark was at SFU Burnaby to announce funding for a new neighbourhood energy utility on Burnaby Mountain. This district energy system will provide heat for the whole campus plus future homes in the UniverCity sustainable community. It will also replace SFU's aging boilers and help reduce 80 per cent of the school's
