Recorrido virtual por el sistema de servicios sociales. Madrid
Este proyecto tiene la finalidad de acercar al alumno al sistema público de servicios sociales, para ello presentamos los esquemas de los temas introductorios necesarios para el conocimiento de los servicios sociales con el soporte de un glosario de los términos más usados. A la vez, se puede tener acceso a una base de datos de legislación vigente sobre protección social.
Orchestrating cell separation in plants : what are the risks and benefits?
In this podcast, Professor Roberts from the School of Biosciences discusses his research into the mechanism responsible for regulating cell separation in plants. In particular how plants ‘shed’ parts of themselves such as leaves or fruit. Professor Roberts explores the potential application of his research, through prevention or encouraging of the ‘shedding’ process, agricultural harvests could potentially be increased or even synchronised. Professor Roberts also discusses the resistanc

The Immune System: Red Cell Agglutination in Non-Humans
This exercise presents the concepts of immunology from biochemical, evolutionary, and adaptive standpoints. While all organisms have developed some mechanism of defense against external agents, vertebrates have the most complex immune responses capable of exquisite specificity and long duration. This affords a distinct advantage to species with a relatively long life span and low fecundity. This exercise explores the relationship between immunologic stimulation of the host with foreign antigens
Virtual field trip
An interactive map containing computer generated 3D views of the Bowscale and Bannerdale area overlain with geology, and also alternative map data layers for the two study site is available via the 'Virtual Tour' icon on the computer desktops.
Virtual yeast cell
This rich learning object is used to introduce yeast cytology to students taking Module D24BS3 Brewery Yeast Management as part of the MSc in Brewing Science. The virtual cell permits the students to understand structure and function of yeast organelles.
Visualizing the Cytoskeleton - Cell Biology
This is an introductory survey of cell and developmental biology. The assembly of supramolecular structures; membrane structure and function; the cell surface; cytoplasmic membranes; the cytoskeleton and cell motility; the eukaryotic genome, chromatin, and gene expression; the cell cycle; organelle biogenesis, differentiation, and morphogenesis.
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics
A team at Utah State University has assembled this impressive collection of interactive, educational online Java applets. The tools are suited for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. There are five main categories of applications, consisting of numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. Each category has a number of applets that demonstrate various concepts. The applets present a problem and prompt the user for a solution. Graphical rep
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Virtual Museum
Visit the online exhibits to learn about the standardization of women's clothing, weights and measures (crucial to industrialization), technology development during World War II, the first government computer with an internal program, the fall of parity, OCR machines, weathering of stone, Jacob Rabinow, and more.
The Virtual Body
The Virtual Body from MEDtropolis.com is an interactive overview of some of the basic structure and function of the human body. The site, available in both English and Spanish, is a mix of information and activities focused on four areas -- the brain, skeleton, heart, and digestive tract. The site's extensive array of diagrams and images, as well as its interactive nature, enhance the site's appeal and educational potential.
Field Project Tutorials: A Virtual (Structural) Field Project
This virtual five-day field mapping project allows students to construct a geological map from data provided by the web site. Students collect geologic, structural, paleontologic, strain and microstructural data observed at specific localities. Students are then able to derive a structural history for the area, including a field map, stereographs, and deformation plots. The site contains photographs and images, data, and all information that is needed to complete the exercise. It also provides s
Eisenhower Home Virtual Tour
This site walks students through the house that was the only place President Eisenhower and his wife ever called home. In 1950, the Eisenhowers, looking forward to retirement, purchased the Allen Redding farm adjoining Gettysburg National Military Park. During his Presidency, President and Mrs. Eisenhower used the farm as a weekend retreat, a refuge in time of illness, and a comfortable meeting place for world leaders.
Test your knowledge about cell differentiation, cell function and tissue culture.
Combining Travel With Home School Geography with Virtual Field Trips
Learn how to combine travel with home school geography. An experienced teacher and home school authority discusses field trip packets for people can't travel to teach geography. These are virtual field trips on podcasts with journal stories, and activities for all ages.
In this interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium, explore the step-by-step process by which an animal cell divides to make more cells.
Blood Cell Basics
Students will make a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They will learn about the different components that make up blood and will investigate what happens when the arteries and veins experience buildup from cholesterol. They will then work in pairs to brainstorm ways to clean our clogged arteries.
In this hands-on activity, students build their own two-cell battery. They also determine which electrolyte solution is best suited for making a battery.
How to Create An In-Cell Bar Graph Using Open Office Calc.
This quick tutorial shows how to compare data using an in-cell bar graph in the Open Office Calc Program.
The simulation program is based on the Nobel Prize winning Hodgkin-Huxley model for excitation of the squid axon. The program simulates an excised squid axon by applying stimuli or clamps after setting the environment of the axon, changing its properties, and/or adding drugs or toxins. By using the program tools, experiments can be developed that explore a variety of nerve properties, ranging from classical phenomena such as threshold, summation, refractory period, and impulse propagation to mo
Cell Differentials offers a visual dataset of white blood cells that gives students practice in developing strategies and techniques for the recognition of these blood cell types. Over 100 different cell images are randomly presented with feedback on successful identification. In traditional labs, the recognition of white blood cell types can be compromised by several factors. Developmental changes can make recognition difficult and some cell types exhibit similar features. Microscopy can be a
