Videos / What Was The Miller-Urey Experiment? - Stated Clearly. Description This animation was sponsored by the Center for Chemical Evolution, NSF, and NASA: The Miller-Urey experiment was the first attempt to scientifically explore ideas about the origin of life.

Videos / What Was The Miller-Urey Experiment? - Stated Clearly

Stanley Miller simulated conditions thought be common on the ancient Earth. The purpose was to test the idea that the complex molecules of life (in this case, amino acids) could have arisen on our young planet through simple, natural chemical reactions.

Houdini Honey Badgers Can Escape From Anywhere

But they don't just have attitude. As this clip from a BBC documentary reveals, they're also really smart. We know a lot of people who wouldn't be able to work out how to get out of an enclosure like this. It is amazing to think that barely 50 years ago Jane Goodall was mocked for producing evidence that chimpanzees use tools. One can only imagine the response if she had made the same claims about honey badgers, whose relationship to us is many times more distant. The games between Stoffel and Brian may be all in good fun – one commentator on Youtube suggests Stoffel likes escaping more than being free, and that may actually be right. In other regions similar conflicts have emerged over ratels attacking chickens. Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham.

Fossils Worksheets. Nature adapts to Chernobyl. Chernobyl: 28 years after disaster On April 26, Ukraine marks the 28th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, the worst nuclear accident in history.

Nature adapts to Chernobyl

Take a look at haunting scenes from inside the exclusion zone. 25, 2014 Novoshepelychi, Ukraine: The clicking sound from Timothy Mousseau's radiation detector slowly increased as he walked through the forest here, a few miles west of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. As he stopped to examine a spider web on a tree branch, the display on the device showed 25 microsieverts an hour.

The levels of radioactivity here are far below those still found in parts of the deteriorating shelter that covers the destroyed reactor - a shelter that by 2017 will itself be covered by a huge arch that is intended to eliminate the threat of further radioactive contamination. A cooling tower of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant emerges from the forest in the distance as Timothy Mousseau, a biologist, right, measures bat sounds with his assistant.

Evolution of Plants. Darwin/Lamark court case. By Don Mills This six to seven 40 minute period activity allows students to role play while learning theories of evolution.

Darwin/Lamark court case

To start this activity have your students write their names on scrap pieces of paper. Read the list of roles to the class. After reading the roles to the class ask the members of the class interested in being the judge to place their names in a beaker then draw a name and return other names to their owners. Repeat this process for the bailiff, attorneys, and court reporters. JUDGE : Preside over court, follow judicial rules and maintain order in court.BAILIFF : Call court to order, introduce judge, and swear in witnesses.COURT REPORTERS (2) : Record all proceedings in a notebook.DARWIN and LAMARCK : Tell where they were educated and what they have done in life.

Group 2 : Research how the paleontologist can provide giraffe evidence that supports your person's theory. Group 3 : Research using SIRS and encyclopedias, etc. to find other witnesses. Peppered moth demo. Guppy. The purpose of this activity is to analyze how guppy populations change over time.

The simulation activity allows you to start with a pool of guppies and your choice of predators, you will be able to watch what happens to your guppy population and how the introduction of predators can affect the guppy's appearance.
