K-16 Education Links
Links to external educational websites for K-16 students
and educators interested in learning more about genomics
and computational biology.
Buddies: Are you looking for ideas for
a great science fair project? Do you need help designing
and conducting experiments? Science buddies offers ‘starter
kits’ to help get your research started. Science buddies
will pair you with a high school mentor and a science or
engineering professional. Consider submitting your project
to the California
State fair and national science
fairs sponsored by Intel or
Science Learning Center: An excellent
educational resource that explains basic genetics concepts
and how they relate to our lives. Learn how to build a DNA
or cell model and find gene and blood types. This site was
developed and is maintained by the Genetic Science Learning
Center at the University of Utah.
Revolution: This site provides a colorful
introduction to the genomic revolution. Learn the history
and facts behind the genetics revolution. The site was developed
and is maintained by the American Museum of Natural History.
School 99: A comprehensive overview of the
science and applications of modern genetics. Includes photographs,
games and experiments you can try at home. The materials
on this site were developed by high school students for ThinkQuest.
DNA From the Beginning: The basics of DNA, genes
and heredity explained using animations, images, video interviews,
biographies and more. Developed and maintained by the Dolan
DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Labs.
I Can Do That!: Find fun facts about DNA, RNA,
cells, proteins and cloning. The site was developed and is
maintained by EurekaScience.
Introduction to Biology: A no nonsense introduction
to molecular biology with an emphasis on genomics and bioinformatics.
The site is intended for students with an interest in science
but without a background in biology. The site was developed
and is maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute.
DNA Interactive: An award willing interactive exploration
of genetics. This site is developed and maintained by the
Dolan DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
Project Education Kit: Download free
educational computer programs from the Human Genome Project.
Science Primer: Learn advanced biology concepts
from genome mapping to microarrays and more. The site was
developed and is maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology
YouSTEM for San Francisco Bay Area: Local opportunities for K-12 students in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math.
