QUESTION #1 Dinosaurs belonged to which group of animals: Earth - See the world's biggest heart As the largest animal to have ever lived, the blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) can also be expected to have some record-breaking internal organs. Tales of its heart being as big as a car, with the aorta (its main artery) large enough for a human to swim through abound, but as finding intact specimens to research is rare, the truth has been difficult to find out. So when a dead blue whale washed ashore in Newfoundland, Canada, experts saw a valuable opportunity. A team from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) was sent to dissect the 76.5ft (23.3m) blue whale, which had died after becoming trapped in ice. This is the first blue whale heart to be anatomically preserved "We had to get the chest cavity opened to expose the heart and then get in there and free the heart up from all of the surrounding tissues, getting in with what was left of the lungs and blood, pretty much up to my waist," explains Jacqueline Miller, a mammalogy technician from the ROM.

Esperimenti eniscuolachannel Loading... Working... ► Play all Esperimenti Detail Despite the European economic crisis, most countries in Europe continue to invest in the future by lending political and financial support to increasing students' interest in pursuing science careers, to improving their performance in related subjects at school, and to enhancing their motivation. A new Scientix report investigates the strategies and measures in place in thirty different countries across Europe. This report focuses in particular on policies and initiatives in teacher education, based on data retrieved from National Contact Points for STEM education in Europe. A vast majority of the countries observed are paying more attention to improving the provision of professional development for in-service teachers of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects than initial teacher training. The report argues that the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) agenda could be usefully embraced more extensively to motivate students to pursue STEM studies and careers.
I Love My Classroom: Mystery Hero I know this picture has been floating around on Pinterest for a while now, and it's been on my Classroom Management page too... but I wanted to give it the importance that it deserved - front and center. This activity was simple, but it really helped my students to feel cared about. They grew in responsibility from it. I would watch them linger in front of their name, and show it to their friends who might have been absent the day they had been chosen. How it works in my classroom:Basically I have all the student numbers on ball pit balls in a big reusable grocery bag.

Anatomy Videos - Interactive Biology, with Leslie Samuel I fell in love with Anatomy when I became the Anatomy Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Andrews University. Working with Cadavers really is an insightful experience that teaches you about the marvels of the human body. I started making these videos to help out my students (and you too of course). Have fun!
