Logo for Chickscope
A resource that uses the development of a chicken egg to allow students to examine a number of biological processes including embryology, genetics, and avian reproductive physiology. While the content is targeted at pre-college students, the quality and detail of the illustrations, photographs, animations, and database of MRI data make this resource well worth exploring for use with college introductory biology students.

Chickscope is an interactive tool to help foster students' understanding in many topics of biology. For example, the embryology portion shows day-to-day pictures of the 21 day cycle to hatch a chick. This is something students will get engaged in and become excited about. It will be very useful in the classroom.
