Overview of NIGMS and Computing Life: Computing Life - National Institute of General Medical Sciences

But as we've upgraded from snail mail and compasses, so too have scientists. Computer advances now let researchers quickly search through DNA sequences to find gene variations that could lead to disease, simulate how flu might spread through your school and design three-dimensional animations of molecules that rival any video game. By teaming computers and biology, scientists can answer new and old questions that could offer insights into the fundamental processes that keep us alive and make us sick. This booklet introduces you to just some of the ways that physicists, biologists and even artists are computing life. What Is NIGMS? The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) supports basic research on genes, proteins and cells. TED-Ed Science. Primary Science.

About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network. The bottom bar of each card contains links to major concept maps for divisions of physics, plus a "go back" feature to allow you to retrace the path of an exploration. Algodoo: Art and Physics.

Grand Challenges - 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering. With input from people around the world an international group of leading technological thinkers were asked to identify the Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st Century.

Grand Challenges - 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering

From urban centers to remote corners of Earth, the depths of the oceans to space, humanity has always sought to transcend barriers, overcome challenges, and create opportunities that improve life in our part of the universe. In the last century alone, many great engineering achievements became so commonplace that we now take them mostly for granted. Welcome - Digital Explorer Digital Explorer. Science News for Students.

The Virtual Lab Series. BioInteractive’s virtual labs have won several awards, including top honors in the Pirelli INTERNETional Award competition, which recognizes the best multimedia products designed to use the Internet to educate about science and technology.

The Virtual Lab Series

Designed in close consultation with educators and scientists, these virtual labs are fully interactive biomedical laboratory simulations and provide students with skills and techniques used in scientific research. BioInteractive’s series of virtual labs allows students to examine heart patients, analyze DNA sequences, probe the nervous system of a leech, use human antibodies to diagnose disease, and measure physical traits of stickleback fish and anole lizards to examine key concepts in evolution. Each lab provides an interactive environment in which students perform experiments and collect their data, and answer questions to assess their understanding. The labs can be accessed by clicking the icons on the right-hand side of the page.

5 Great Science Websites For Kids

The site is colorful and makes silly sounds as you move your mouse around the page. Kids can read science trivia, science jokes, and play science games. The site also has just over a dozen experiments that kids can perform in school or at home under the supervision of their parents. This site from the BBC offers information, games, and quizzes on a wide variety of scientific topics.

The site is very simple to navigate with only three categories: Living Things, Materials, and Physical Process. CrashCourse. Frontiers for Young Minds.

The 25 Must Have Resources for Science Teachers

Below is a list featuring some great resources for science teachers. These resources provide a wide variety of materials for teaching science from lesson plans, printables, activities, technology resources and many more. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. This is a periodic table of chemical elements ( around 180 ) with an illustrative video around each element. This wonderful work has been realized by The University of Nottingham. The Understanding Science site was produced by the UC Museum of Paleontology of the University of California at Berkeley, in collaboration with a diverse group of scientists and teachers, and was funded by the National Science Foundation.

Welcome to Virtual Labs. Using Labs. When you join NOVA Labs, you'­ll be actively participating in science.

Using Labs

The data are real. The questions are real. The challenges you'­ll encounter are the same challenges that scientists and engineers are grappling with today. Whether you have 10 minutes, a few hours, or the time to stay involved for weeks or months, NOVA Labs provides a variety of opportunities for you to participate in the scientific process.

Getting Started The best way to start is to jump right into one of the Labs. If you're new to these topics or want to learn more about the science behind them, each Lab provides a number of short, informative videos that cover the basics—key concepts, explanations of the technologies involved, and an overview of some of the most important questions and challenges in each field.
