In this neuroscience activity, learners conduct a simulation to demonstrate how multiple incoming signals influence the action of neurons.
In this activity related to plant biotechnology, learners extract DNA from fruit to investigate how it looks and feels.
Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) is a cloning method that involves transferring a nucleus from a somatic cell of the individual to be cloned to an enucleated egg.
In this activity, learners make slides of onion cells and their own cheek cells. Use this lab to teach learners how to prepare microscope slides and use a microscope.
This investigation provides learners with a hands-on activity that simulates the changing relationship of surface areas-to-volume for a growing cell.
In this activity related to the human circulatory system (on page 10 of the PDF), learners observe the dispersion of a drop of food coloring in water, draw conclusions about the movement of dissolved
Learners conduct a "blind" taste-test of several types of enhanced or fitness water drinking water that has commercially added substances like vitamins, sugars, or herbs.
Make a big canvas of iridescent color with pvc pipe! In this Exploratorium Science Snack, you'll need to cut and assemble some PVC pipe, but the pay-off, the soap-bubble canvas, is big.
Many of the genetic sequences found in the fruit fly genome are similar to those found in humans.
In this activity related to plant biotechnology, learners transform a strain of E. coli using green fluorescent protein from a bioluminescent jellies.
This activity is about collecting and analyzing DNA as part of a criminal investigation.
This demonstration can be used to help learners visualize DNA by lysing (breaking open) bacterial cells on a slide and “stringing up” the DNA with a toothpick in less than one minute.
In this highly collaborative activity, learners design and complete a controlled experiment which attempts to answer a simple question about the slime mold Physarum.
This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to investigate how, in a one-celled organism such as a bacterium, the division of cells increases the number of cell
Directed by instructional cards, learners kinesthetically model cell communication by acting as components in a cell signaling pathway.
DNA is the thread of life. Encoded in its genetic sequence is the information that makes each of us unique.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under Nanosilver Activity) about diffusion of small molecules across cell membranes.
In this activity about molecular diffusion (located on page 2 of the PDF under Nanosilver Activity), learners will make predictions and move molecules of iodine through a seemingly solid plastic sandw
In this activity, learners make a 3-D model of DNA using paper and toothpicks. While constructing this model, learners will explore the composition and structure of DNA.
