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.
Re-Mission 2: Fight cancer and WIN! Games for cancer support based on scientific research. Fighting Cancer with Video Games Re-Mission 2 games help kids and young adults with cancer take on the fight of their lives. Based on scientific research, the games provide cancer support by giving players a sense of power and control and encouraging treatment adherence. Each game puts players inside the human body to fight cancer with an arsenal of weapons and super-powers, like chemotherapy, antibiotics and the body’s natural defenses. The game play parallels real-world strategies used to successfully destroy cancer and win. All six Re-Mission 2 games can be played online for free.

Ten games that make you think about life At the start of this year, we decided to come up with a list of Flash casual games with a philosophical bent. To be honest, we struggled. After days of research, we could only find a handful of games that had the thought-provoking depth we were looking for. Our list (which you can view by clicking here) was therefore only five games long. Fast forward to now, and it is remarkable how much difference a few months can make. Thanks to the work of pioneers like Daniel Benmergui, Gregory Weir and PixelAnte, there is now an abundance of clever arty Flash games to pique our intellects, and as a result creating this follow-up list of games that make you think has been a doddle. Practical Biology This website is for teachers of biology in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of biological concepts and processes. Experiments are placed within real-life contexts, and have links to carefully selected further reading. Each experiment also includes information and guidance for technicians. Biology is a practical science. Practical activities are not just motivational and fun: they also enable students to apply and extend their knowledge and understanding of biology in novel investigative situations, which can aid learning and memory, and stimulate interest.

CANABALT Wait, I thought you didn’t like ads around your game? I don’t. But I'm using something like 2.5TB of bandwidth each month serving this game up (i.e. A LOT) and Kong hosts good games by good people and is helping me pay my hosting bills! 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.
