Web Sites of Interest

From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry

What can we learn from studying DNA and beer? This is just the type of query that inspires the people at the U.S. National Library of Medicine. This online exhibit is meant to accompany a traveling exhibition and is full of information about key technological innovations that have involved the marriage between medical scholars and industrial professionals. Browsing the Learn More area, visitors will find interactive features about how insulin was made from recombinant DNA. Additional features cover the fermentation of beer and the creation of penicillin. The Digital Gallery contains nineteen fascinating items, such as catalogs celebrating Louis Pasteur, treatises on food adulteration, and animal chemistry. These archival items truly bring the history of medicine and innovation to the forefront. For those interested, the site is nicely rounded out with suggested readings and other complementary websites. [KMG]

Understanding Science: Teaching Resources

The world of science is diverse and fascinating, but traditional methods of teaching sometimes don't do it justice. This site from the University of California helps teachers help their students become fascinated by the process of scientific discovery. The site contains several "teachers' lounges" where educators can share information, resources, and also learn about new pedagogical developments and innovations. Visitors shouldn't miss the Guide to Understanding Science 101, which includes answers to questions like What is science? and so on. Moving on, the site also contains other areas, including Correcting Misconceptions, Teaching Tools, and Conceptual Framework, which helps educators identify age-appropriate learning goals. [KMG]
