Harvest of Fear

Logo for Harvest of Fear
Site has four parts discussing aspects of genetically engineered crops. Of particular interest is the simulation titled "Engineering a Crop" in which a tomato plant resistant to an insect pest is constructed using transgenic methods. The simulation is very interactive.

I used the site in a teaching-learning activity for a college science methods
class. I found the site to be very educational and easy to navigate through.
Even though I was required to use this site for an assignment, I most certainly
will also use it to teach GM crops to my own students.
Used in course

I used this site as a teaching-learning activity in a college non-science
majors Contemporary Biology Course. My students had to review each activity in
this site and write an opinion paper. They actually thanked me for giving them
this assignment. They learned a great deal about genetically-modified plants.

Technical Remarks:

This activity is easy to understand and the interactive animation of making
genetically modified products is entertaining for the students as well as a
useful learning tool. The students'understanding of genetic engineering was
enhanced by this exercise.

I have used this web site to teach the concept of transgenic organisms to both
college level biology students, for high school teacher-training workshops and
to have non-science majors write a 500 word position paper on whether they
support such technology in ourt society. The simulation used to create a
genetically modified tomotato plant is excellent and very interactive. Students
really seem to understand the general steps used to create transgenic crops
after this simulation. Other general information provided in this site
addresses a number of other pertinent issues.
