Jumpin' the Gap
In this simulation of synapses, learners act out communication at the neural level by behaving as pre-synaptic vesicles, neurotransmitters, post-synaptic receptors, secondary messengers and re-uptake
Neural Network Signals
In this activity, learners create an electrical circuit and investigate how some dissolved substances conduct electricity.
Our Sense of Touch: Two-Point DiscriminationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate the touch sensory system and discover how to plan and carry out their own experiments.
The Model NeuronAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create a model of a neuron by using colored clay or play dough. Learners use diagrams to build the model and then label the parts on a piece of paper.
Sliding Gray Step
How can you make one shade of gray look like two? By putting it against two different color backgrounds! This activity allows learners to perform this sleight of hand very easily.
In this optics activity, learners make a lens and explore how the eye manipulates the light that enters it.
