Short Films “Film is a powerful way to tell stories. … The right story, told well, can be engaging, informative, and memorable.” —Sean B. Carroll HHMI’s series of short films for the classroom brings fascinating stories of science and scientists to students and teachers. The films aim to bring important scientific advances to life with concrete examples of how science works, how evidence is weighed and tested, and how conclusions are reached. These compelling stories, in fields ranging from evolutionary biology and genetics to earth science, feature leading scientists and stunning locations around the world.

Simulador Ondas Agua Loading... Made by Evan Wallace This demo requires a decent graphics card and up-to-date drivers. Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. Kids Games -  Play Educational and Fun Online Kids Games! Play Kids Games. Fråga jourhavande geolog Jourhavande geolog svara också på frågor om Sveriges berggrund och geologiska utveckling, om jordklotets uppbyggnad och utveckling, plattektonik, kontinentaldrift, vulkaner, jordbävningar och bergskedjebildning. Har jag hittat en meteorit? Museet får varje år in många frågor om och bilder på förmodade meteoriter från allmänheten. Riktiga meteoriter är dock väldigt sällsynta, och hittills har ingen av dessa många misstänkta fynd visat sig vara en riktig meteorit, inte ens när någon påstås ha observerat hur den föll ned.

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. 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.

Pathfinderswap - home inneh.html (Bilder ur Nordens Flora) Alfabetiskt index Alfabetiskt index Life boils down to five 'rules' ... or so says the Madingley Model It may sound overly simple, but just five processes can define us as animals: eating, metabolism, reproduction, dispersal and death. They might not seem like much, but, thanks to a mathematical model from scientists at Microsoft Research, we know that these five processes are the key to all ecosystems. It’s called the Madingley Model, and is the first time scientists have simulated ecosystems across the globe using a single set of biological rules. When these rules are combined with your body mass at birth and your body mass at maturity, they are enough to define your role in an ecosystem. In fact, they are enough to define any organism’s role (for plants, substitute “eating” with “photosynthesis”). The Madingley Model is a global ecosystem model (GEM).

Darwin 2.0: Scientists shed new light on how species diverge Birds that are related, such as Darwin's finches, but that vary in beak size and behavior specially evolved to their habitat are examples of a process called speciation. It has long been thought that dramatic changes in a landscape like the formation of the Andes Mountain range or the Amazon River is the main driver that initiates species to diverge. However, a recent study shows that speciation occurred much later than these dramatic geographical changes. Researchers from LSU's Museum of Natural Science have found that time and a species' ability to move play greater parts in the process of speciation.

Joan Wiffen (1922–2009) Changing scientific ideas Each specialised field of science has key ideas and ways of doing things. Over time, these ideas and techniques can be revised or replaced in the light of new research. Most changes to key science ideas are only accepted gradually, tested through research by many people.
