BioBits were developed by a group of synthetic biologists who wanted to help students learn biology by doing biology. BioBits take advantage of cutting-edge freeze-dried cell-free technology to make it possible to run biological experiments without living cells. Learn about DNA and how it makes proteins by making your own fluorescent proteins and more! BioBits are portable, user-friendly, and inexpensive, making it possible for to teach molecular biology outside of the lab.
PBS LearningMedia developed in partnership with the WGBH Educational Foundation offers content for science, math, engineering and technology, and other subjects at various grade levels. Videos, podcasts, interactive content, lesson plans, and professinal development courses are all available with new content added regularly.
Developed with NIH support, these web simulation models expose high school students to scientific and biomedical engineering practices and careers. Free, online simulations engage students in technology while designing authentic neuroscience-based clinical trials using real-world examples.
