Alchemy in the kitchen? A collection explains the science behind the food chain. Videos and support materials cover everything from yummy things like cheese, to chocolate, to sourdough bread, from science topics like genetically...
Young scholars identify relationships between scientific concepts and their historical roots. They discuss and debate issues of ethics in science, specifically on the concept of genetic engineering and describe the processes of cloning...
A presentation of how engineering based in making something better led to engineering genetics. Scholars learn that genetic engineering began by selectively breeding plants that had specific characteristics to improve them. The video...
Howard Hughes Medical Institute
No matter where you stand on the controversial topic of genetic engineering, the science that makes it possible is extraordinary. An animated video describes a process of genetic engineering involving bacteria. The quick demonstration...
An example of extreme genetic engineering is modified salmon, which are genetically altered to grow twice their size and swim twice as fast — and they're probably in grocery stores already! The video explores synthetic biology or the...
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Scientists may have the technology to cure diseases, including cancer in the near future, but at what cost? The video explains genetic engineering that could deadly cure diseases. It highlights the benefits while also weighing the risks.
Pretty purple slides present a plethora of jargon related to genetic engineering. Most of them have one term across the top and a brief explanation of that term below. They are arranged in alphabetical order, which may not be the most...
Genetic Engineering Challenge – How Can Scientists Develop a Type of Rice That Could Prevent Vitamin A Deficiency?
Brown rice contains vitamins B and E, while white rice lasts longer in storage. The availability of rice around the world makes it a great candidate for genetic engineering. Scholars apply their knowledge of genetic engineering to solve...
In The Hunger Games novel and movie, a futuristic, dystopian society is the setting. In it, a genetically engineered bird escapes control of the government. Using this as a starting point, teenagers examine the realistic possibility of...
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
In many households across the country, GMOs are a big no-no. Is our mistrust of genetically-engineered food misguided? Biology scholars examine the facts with an animated video from the Kurzgesagt playlist. Topics include the history of...
The details and definitions of Biotechnology and genetic engineering are very useful, but this is a very long PowerPoint with no images or ways of breaking up the information. The slides are nicely composed and relevant, so this could be...
In this genetic engineering activity, students complete a crossword puzzle given 17 clues about topics related to cloning and genetic engineering in animals.
The concepts here cover the gamut of biotechnological engineering. Information is given about plasmids and genetic manipulation. After reviewing genetic engineering, this slide show would be useful to recap some of the main procedures.
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
One thousand children die every day from malaria. Scientists now have the ability to stop this, but the ethical concerns worry many. The video explains both sides of the argument and the amazing science making it all possible.
Review the aspects of human cloning and the moral issues associated with it. Individually, your students will keep a list of the articles related to this issue and research issues related to the ethic issues people are concerned with....
Explore genetic engineering through an engaging "Jurassic Park" unit, which is an extensive use of a cross-curricular teaching event. Planned for AP Biology, English, and Calculus students, learners and teachers are involved for 4-6...
Learners examine various genetically engineered foods by lecture and library research. They are then placed in groups of two to produce their ad and make a presentation on a food they have developed.
A continuous cascade of information comes through this PowerPoint on biotechnology. The topic is defined, a history is presented, and basic genetic engineering techniques are explained. The topic is covered in an objective manner,...
Students research the genetically-engineered GloFish and write essays expressing their views about the subject. They evaluate the pros and cons of genetic engineering.Students may also hold a debate about genetic engineering.
Are genetically engineered foods risky or beneficial overall? The video, part of the PBS food science series, explores the debate from a scientific perspective. It explains the history of genetic modification, the benefits, and the...
Explore the bacteria at Yellowstone to introduce molecular biology. Scholars learn about the process of genetic engineering and how it has progressed over time, including the identification of the breast cancer genes and the main...
Explore the addition of algae as a cancer treatment with a video that explains how a specific type of algae prevents chemotherapy from attacking healthy cells. The results are amazingly positive!
Here is help with the definitions and biotechnological impacts of genetic engineering. These slides also cover the many products and sociological impacts that have been affected by genetic engineering. A discussion could be started about...
Students brainstorm and discuss ways genes can be altered, transferred and cloned. They will complete a subject sampler, opinion paper and prepare to debate their opinion on genetic engineering.
