The interactive web-based simulation activity engages students in an inquiry-based study of the principles of genetic inheritance using the fruit fly Drosophila. Students make observations, propose hypotheses, design experiments, collect and analyze data generated by the web-based software, and synthesize and communicate results through an on-line notebook and report.
The activity includes: Free guest, student, and teacher accounts (http://www.sciencecourseware.org/vcise/) A self-paced animated demonstration Tour On-line assessment and grading for teachers Alignment to state and U.S. National Science Education Standards
The work is supported by grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation and the California State University System. Previous activities developed include Earthquake, Global Warming, Virtual Dating, and Virtual River, all accessible at www.ScienceCourseware.org.
Drosophila provides an outstanding and easy to use virtual genetics lab. The website provides tools for students and teachers to conduct science experiments based on authetic genetic models. The online lab notebook and report tool is especially useful for students organizing their lab work. The teacher guides are excellent as well.
