If you have any questions, e-mail mirage@cals.arizona.edu. The fact that some users of the term do indeed use it in a very broad fashion (and I suspect this is true of the average non-scientist reader) also points in the direction of leaving the title unchanged. Watch two sample episodes—“No Volts for Von Bolt” and “The Eagle Has Landed”—at http://bit.ly/1QZYtHB, then visit the series website to access additional episode clips, music videos, printable activities, and games to spark student interest in science.

So I see this as a broad policy debate that is less about a particular technology than about the capacity for parents to make choices about the genetics of their children. An Associate Professor in the College of Environment and Design, Alfie Vick hopes his students will gain a unique appreciation of design. ''Landscape architecture can improve the ecological function of the built environment, create healthier human communities, and engage people with nature.

NASA provides complete instructions, along with a set of audio and video clips, photographs, and information about space-related topics such as Newton’s laws and spacesuits. And people overcome this initial instinct to think that that was cheating death; meaning cheating what God intended for you. He appears to have done some research for “When We Were Orphans”; but in “Never Let Me Go,” even after the secrets have been revealed, there are still a lot of holes in the story. DEAN HAMER (National Cancer Institute): How much is it going to cost to make a designed baby?

ROBERT KRULWICH: She also has a high risk of cancer in her left breast. Then consider why it’s important to draw more women to science, and how to remove barriers to their success. Thorne discusses the science in the movie, and how it might inspire us to dream about our future. The dead bodies of animals used in genetic engineering experiments can be sold as meat for human consumption. Transfer of genes from engineered crops to other plants might also occur—for example, making weeds resistant to a specific herbicide or expanding the range of a plant so that it can grow in new locations.

The more exciting possibilities of this kind of low-tech program could only be realized if a number of different, rare genes were found that could each independently improve intelligence. To help celebrate the imminent arrival of spring migrants, Jessie Barry and Chris Wood from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology share their warbler-watching tips with you in a new video. In their GA, the first generation of rules, all of which had one condition, was generated using a probabilistic induction technique.

In 1999 in Alberta, Canada canola (oilseed rape) volunteers (unwanted crop plants coming up the following year) resistant to three different herbicides have been discovered. They have been scared by public reaction. The once-promising sector of “biopharming,” which uses genetic engineering techniques to induce crops such as corn, tomatoes, and tobacco to produce high concentrations of high-value pharmaceuticals, is moribund. Flinn Scientific offers new demonstrations for middle school science teachers. “Water, Sand, and Popcorn” are the ingredients in two demonstrations that help students explore density, mass, volume, and weight.

Since this point scientists have been working to discover which traits each of the tens of thousands of individual genes possess. We're now examining and interpreting the genetic code. This booklet from Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s BirdSleuth program helps K–12 students participate in citizen science bird projects by guiding them through six challenges using resources from eBird. Each exhibit includes information, virtual experiments, and hands-on activities for exploring the topic from various angles.

So much SF is devoted to our quest for contact, but the original short sums up the anticipation so well. The discrepancy has been explained in terms of the inability of the HPRT test to detect mitotic recombination events (HPRT is X-linked) and a relatively strong in vivo selection against mutants. Since malaria kills hundreds of thousands of people annually, the potential benefit is obvious. Assesses the implications of emerging biotechnologies like gene mapping, gene chips, and genetically modified food

Most appropriate for high school and college levels, this interactive visualization found at http://htwins.net/scale2 helps viewers grasp the size of the universe in relation to familiar (and unfamiliar) objects, land masses, planets, and the like. Results from that mission, recently published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, showed that the collective search behavior of ants in microgravity had some interesting twists. This module addresses practical teaching questions like “what is the process of science?” “why should I teach it?” and “how do I teach it?” It also includes several how-to examples and a list of additional resources for integrating the process of science into teaching at all levels, using different techniques.
