The Science of our World

The Science of our World
Welcome to our new website! We’ve made some pretty big changes that will make accessing informative pages and videos a lot easier. We have new ways to stay connected and are continually adding videos. Peruse video blogs and current science news videos, search videos by subject, wander the tree of life, look for helpful pages to understand a science concept, and much more! Have fun exploring… Our mission at Untamed Science is to make science education fun.

Schools Experiences in early-years and secondary education have a significant influence over students' decisions to continue studying biology at GCSE, A Level and university. We support teachers working to enthuse the biologists of tomorrow by providing a number of leading resources. TalkBiology is an online forum available for teachers, technicians and other educators to interact online, share ideas, resources, questions and thoughts about science education and classroom resources. Access to the forum requires registration but is available free of charge to educational professionals. Biology is a practical science; we believe good quality biology experiments are the key to enhanced learning. The Society of Biology supports the Practical Biology website which provides teachers with exciting experiments demonstrating a wide range of biological concepts and processes.

STAR: Genetics - Home StarGenetics is a Mendelian genetics cross simulator developed at MIT by biology faculty, researched-trained scientists and technologists at MIT's OEIT. StarGenetics allows students to simulate mating experiments between organisms that are genetically different across a range of traits to analyze the nature of the traits in question. Its goal is to teach students about genetic experimental design and genetic concepts. For more information on StarGenetics click here. KML Archive Introduction I am a British/American volcanologist, neogeographer and undergraduate educator. My scientific interests incorporate a mixture of physical volcanology, geomorphology, remote sensing and other geospatial tools, such as Google Earth.

STAR: Biochem - Home StarBiochem is a 3-D protein viewer that allows students to learn key concepts about the biology of proteins in an interactive manner. Unlike traditional 3-D protein viewers which may require installation and significant technical expertise, StarBiochem is an intuitive 3-D protein viewer designed with students in mind. StarBiochem’s user interface was designed to visually represent protein structural information based on the four different levels of protein structure, which mirrors how students get introduced to this topic in class and in textbooks. Using StarBiochem StarBiochem is accessible via the web. Plate Tectonics - Crust, Lithosphere, Mantle Topics Plate Tectonics Crust Lithosphere Mantle Density Buoyancy Earth Science Description

High School Student & Teacher Outreach The Department of Biology is actively involved in science outreach at the high school level. The goal of these outreach programs is to make science fun and exciting by bringing new hands-on activities into the classrooms, and to make teaching and learning science a more enriching and rewarding experience for both students and teachers. Science teachers from the greater Boston area are invited to: Attend a 5-day summer workshop with lectures on current topics in biology and hands-on laboratory activities. Apply for a six-week summer research internship in a biology lab at MIT. (Note: we currently do NOT offer research internships for high school students) Bring their honors and advanced placement biology classes to MIT for faculty lectures and hands-on lab activities.

Here you will find resources to help you teach biology at the high school level. Some of my Regents lectures are supported by Powerpoint presentations. If you are not familiar, Regents is a 10th grade very simplified introduction to Biology, that is limited by a state-wide exam.

Free Lesson Plans For The Environment The environment is a hot topic – in the news, in politics, and in schools, especially in STEM . Since many aspects of environmental issues are practical, everyday things that even younger students can see, the topic lends itself well to a variety of teaching methods like Project Based Learning and Challenge Based Learning . We recently stumbled upon a great resource that will give you some great ideas and lesson plans relating to the environment that can work regardless of how you’re planning on integrating the information into the curriculum. Classroom Earth (which is a program of the National Environmental Education Foundation) is a site that serves as a virtual library for useful web sites, videos, and lesson and unit plans.
