A website from the Exploratorium's Paul Doherty, a recipient of NSTA’s Faraday Science Communicator Award, presents a searchable collection of favorite classroom experiments and activities, covering topics from flying tinsel to a glowing pickle. Folklorists and scholars of comparative mythology are not apt to search for parallels between the Nation of Islam’s (NOI) mythological villain, Yakub, a big-headed scientist whose genetic engineering experiments unleashed the “evil white race” upon the world, and Pandora, whose curiosity unleashed plagues and ills upon the world.

The two met in Berger’s office later that month. On this Lockheed Martin–funded site, middle level and high school students can design renewable energy systems for cities nationwide and compete with Energy Lab participants nationally. Each plant's entry should include information on cultivation, propagation, growing zones, water needs, growth cycle, and bloom/fruit seasons. We are on the edge of a new age in science and food production: the age of genetic engineering. Based on the training software used at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, the simulation introduces students to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers through the modeling of different responsibilities involved behind the scenes of a shuttle launch.

The Amphibian Project works to generate public awareness and understanding of the threats facing the world’s amphibian population, and in particular to help save one species—the large-crested toad— from extinction. The article then shares advice on reading chemical labels, storing chemicals, organizing chemicals, and properly disposing of unused chemicals. A well-organized scoring guide makes it easier for students to understand what is involved in writing a strong conclusion.

At the same time, though, the viral route has not been closed off. It could help prevent life-threatening and incurable diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and even HIV/AIDS. Alternative (complementary) medicine has made real progress since my generally-unfavorable 1983 review. But the outcomes of this fiction are so steeped in realities that are already surrounding us, that the possibilities of Atwood's speculation become frighteningly plausible.

Kaczynski's dystopian vision describes unintended consequences, a well-known problem with the design and use of technology, and one that is clearly related to Murphy's law -- "Anything that can go wrong, will." (Actually, this is Finagle's law, which in itself shows that Finagle was right.) Our overuse of antibiotics has led to what may be the biggest such problem so far: the emergence of antibiotic-resistant and much more dangerous bacteria.

Teachers can search the database by topic (e.g., Animals, Astronomy, Birds, Climate and Weather, Ecology, Food, Health and Medicine, Physics, Pollinators, and others), agency sponsor, and participant age (e.g., elementary, families, general public, middle level, and youth/teen) to narrow project choices to those of interest. All students take a core group of foods-related courses and tailor supporting courses and electives to meet future career goals.

Transmembrane proteins often perform important functions such as sensing the presence of certain substances outside the cell or transporting them into the cell. No insecticidal sprays needed on crops that have insecticidal Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-toxin genes engineered into them. ROBERT KRULWICH: Well, I don't know, I don't work in this field. Also, good guys are bad guys and vice versa. Early foreshadowing of superficial science is on page 36, where the author confuses cerebellum with cerebrum, and PET scans with CT scans.

The power of computers has since continued to increase exponentially. NOAA has collected online educational resources on tsunamis for use in K–12 classrooms. As in the movie a person�s genetics are very private and can very well be used as a basis of discrimination, this is the central theme of the film. Myths about divine intervention might help some people to believe in the existence of God, but in the modern world, where science and religion must be in agreement, the existence of God should be explained without resorting to myths about miracles.

In 2008, Paul Kincaid replaced Farah Mendlesohn. With genetic engineering this process is completely bypassed. As it turns out, a collaboration of American and German researchers has done this work—and found that variations of DNA letters in 20 different positions are influential in bipolar disease. Of course she lived to be 3½. Tethered beneath the surface of a gloomy underground lagoon, not in Italy, lies a bag filled with yellowish-brown goop that holds enough of a mysterious virus to render much of humanity infertile – somehow.
