Virtual Fetal Pig Dissection Welcome to the Whitman College Biology Department's Virtual Pig Dissection (VPD)! This site is designed as a supplement to laboratory dissections exploring introductory mammalian anatomy and physiology — it is basic and many details have been omitted for clarity. We hope that it is suitable for AP Biology students or for students of introductory anatomy and physiology at the college level. We have revised this site to improve the learning experience and accessibility. Please see the "About" page for more details and contact information. We hope you find it useful and enjoy using it!

75 educational resources to help kids learn about space - Ara Sarafian - ABC Education - Around 13.8 billion years ago, a big bang set in motion the creation of space, matter and everything in existence. About 4.5 billion years ago, the Earth came into existence. And then came humans. Stephen Hawking said: "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious."

Our Solar System Our planetary system is located in an outer spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Our solar system consists of our star, the Sun, and everything bound to it by gravity – the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune; dwarf planets such as Pluto; dozens of moons; and millions of asteroids, comets, and meteoroids. Beyond our own solar system, we have discovered thousands of planetary systems orbiting other stars in the Milky Way. Go farther. Elementary GLOBE - Elementary GLOBE Elementary GLOBE is designed to introduce students in grades K-4 to the study of Earth system science. Each module of Elementary GLOBE includes: A science-based fictional storybook in which kids explore an aspect of the Earth system using their science skills.

Pascaline On your bike: how muscles respond to exercise ​We all know that exercise makes us fitter and healthier – but what changes take place in our cells to make this happen? Next time you are working out in the gym, or pounding the streets running or jogging, ponder this: the idea of ‘muscle memory’ – that today’s exercise has effects on our muscles years from now – has never been demonstrated scientifically. Does it really exist, and if so, how does it work? These are some of the questions we hope to answer in our on-going research, which aims to pin down the changes that occur in muscles when we exercise, and how our muscles ‘know’ to respond differently to, say, endurance training as opposed to strength training. Helping us to investigate these questions is a large team of volunteers. Not only must they cycle to exhaustion in our gym, but before and after a strenuous exercise regime lasting several weeks, we take a tiny sample of their leg muscle under local anaesthetic (figure 1).

Science for Kids: Earth's Atmosphere Science >> Earth Science for Kids The earth is surrounded by a layer of gases called the atmosphere. The atmosphere is very important to life on Earth and does many things to help protect life and help life to survive. problème obésité : Persuasive Games -Fatworld (laura philippe) Fatworld is a game about the politics of nutrition.

Blue Sky: Waves & Light Science Activity The sun produces white light, which is made up of light of all colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Light is a wave, and each of these colors corresponds to a different frequency and therefore a different wavelength of light. The colors in the rainbow spectrum are arranged according to their frequencies: Violet and blue light have higher frequencies than yellow, orange, and red light. When the white light from the sun shines through the earth’s atmosphere, it collides with gas molecules. These molecules scatter the light. Space science from home: resources for children and adults With many people across the world staying at home these days, we have curated a selection of activities for you to pass time and learn more about space science in the meantime. Armchair astronomy You could start with ESASky, a discovery portal that provides full access to the entire sky. This open-science application allows computer, tablet and mobile users to visualise cosmic objects near and far across the electromagnetic spectrum – from gamma rays to radio wavelengths – as observed by many space science missions, operated by ESA and other agencies, as well as ground-based telescopes. Users may experience ESASky either via the Explorer mode, visualising random objects with the dice button, entering the name of one's favourite object and navigating around, and switching wavelength and/or observatory, or via the Science mode, which also enables users to download the relevant data, and much more.
