The Academy for Educational Development (AED) examines the short and long term employment outcomes of ATE 2006- 2008 program graduates from four states who earn either a certificate or associates degree in biomanufacturing/biotechnology or process technology. The three major goals of the study are: (1) to utilize Unemployment Insurance (UI) wage records and supplemental data to demonstrate the...

Screenshot Click and Clone
http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/cloning/clickandclone...

This free interactive activity from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center, part of their series titled "Cloning," allows the user to practice somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning using animated mice. Using the "Mouse Cloning Lab," users practice cloning by going through the steps of isolating donor cells from mice, removing and discarding the nucleus from an egg cell,...

Screenshot Cloning
http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/cloning/

This collection of free resources from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center introduces the layperson to cloning history, technologies, and issues. In "What is Cloning?" the user learns the basics of cloning and how it is done. "Click and Clone" lets users try cloning in an interactive simulated mouse cloning laboratory. "The History of Cloning" outlines the history of cloning...

Screenshot Cloning Myths
http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/cloning/cloningmyths/

This free resource from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center highlights common cloning misconceptions. Myths included in this short article are the idea of "the instant clone," that clones will be created at the same age as the original; the myth of "carbon copies," that clones will look exactly like the original; the idea that cloning as a strictly artificial process; the ...

Creative Active Student Engagment in the Sciences
http://www.cse.emory.edu/cases/

Creative Active Student Engagement in the Sciences (CASES) Online is a collection of inquiry-based lessons to engage K-12 and undergraduate students in exploring the science behind real-world problems. Through CASES, educators can transform their students into motivated investigators, self-directed and life-long learners, critical thinkers, and keen problem solvers. Lessons are grounded in...

Screenshot Crystallite Game
http://www.nobelprize.org/educational/physics/liquid_crystal...

This game, developed by Nobel Media, allows students to "take control of a small vehicle and guide it safely through a field of liquid crystal molecules." Similar to Tetris, the game centers around the different types of pattern found in liquid crystal molecules, and allows students to complete eleven levels. As the game's introduction states, "Liquid crystals are partly ordered materials,...

http://scme-nm.org/index.php?option=com_docman&task=cat_view...

The Southwest Center for Microsystems Education is a Regional Advanced Technology Education Center funded in part by the National Science Foundation. These resources provide an overview of how "digitally encoded information in DNA is translated into a functional protein that can be used for diagnostics, analysis and measurements in medical applications." The content will help users in...

GeneChip Microarrays
http://www.affymetrix.com/estore/about_affymetrix/outreach/e...

The curricula on this website, hosted by Affymetrix, were "developed for high school science teachers" and include "activities and modules on the use and function of microarrays, [to] be embedded at multiple levels in all life science classes." According to Affymetricx, microarrays "allow scientists to perform genome wide experiments in a fraction of the amount of time it took even just fine...
