The Biology Project

Arizona - United States

The Biology Project, an interactive online resource for learning biology developed at The University of Arizona. The Biology Project is fun, richly illustrated, and tested on 1000s of students. It has been designed for biology students at the college level, but is useful for high school students, medical students, physicians, science writers, and all types of interested people.

Teachers can assign problems sets for reviews before exams, or may want to assign an activity before students cover that topic in their laboratory. Computers are an excellent means of encouraging cooperative learning, so teachers might even have their students work in small groups. Link to specific Biology Project activities from your course home page, or bookmark The Biology Project on your computer.

Students will find that the information covered in The Biology Project is probably just what they've been studying in their introductory biology course, and advanced students will find these materials to be a useful review. All students will benefit from the real-life applications of biology and the inclusion of up-to-date research findings.
