Ten Ways the Earth is Dangerous To Humans Speaker: Michael Wysession

Ten Ways the Earth is Dangerous To Humans Speaker: Michael Wysession

We are currently in the midst of one of the worst pandemics of this generation, but it is important to remember that there are also many non-biological catastrophes that nature can throw at us and that a large reason that our global population has grown so large so fast (now approaching 8 billion) is that Earth has been relatively quiet for the past two centuries. In this presentation, Professor Wysession will take us through a Top-10 list of Earth and planetary events such as supervolcanoes, asteroid impacts, magnetic field reversals, massive underwater avalanches, and enormous solar flares that have significantly impacted life in the past and could do so again in the future.

How Does Soap “Destroy” Coronaviruses?: Modeling Lipid Bilayers Speaker: Christopher Moore

How Does Soap “Destroy” Coronaviruses?: Modeling Lipid Bilayers Speaker: Christopher Moore

Just like the cells that make up our bodies, coronaviruses are surrounded by a membrane made up of phospholipid bilayers. This membrane is similar to a soap bubble, which consists of water sandwiched between little polar soap molecules. Using a bubble as a model, we’ll learn how washing your hands with soap and the alcohol from hand sanitizer can disrupt a coronavirus, essentially popping its “bubble”.

Journey Through Google Expeditions

Journey Through Google Expeditions

How can you shift from presenting topics in isolation to creating learning experiences that integrate STEM education? COVID 19 has placed an emphasis on the ‘Why’ behind the need for STEM education. By integrating STEM, students gain understanding of topics as they figure out why something is happening or create a solution to a problem such as the current pandemic. The focus of learning needs to shift from the end product to the actual process of learning.

Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science

Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science

Michael Padilla, author Elevate Science, presents Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science: Problem solving, inquiry and scientific practices continue to be a central element of science teaching. With the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, it is even more critical that teachers develop ways to get students to use scientific practices to problem solve and inquire. This session focuses on Next Gen practices and will outline teaching strategies you can use to develop these important skills.

COVID-19 and Other Dangerous New Viral Diseases: Where do they come from? How can we fight them? Speaker: Joseph Levine

COVID-19 and Other Dangerous New Viral Diseases: Where do they come from? How can we fight them? Speaker: Joseph Levine

SARS-CoV-2 is the newest viral threat to humanity, following HIV, SARS, MERS, and flu strains like the one that caused the 1918 pandemic. Why are some viruses so deadly? How do new ones arise and spread? Can we draw from experience to defeat this one? This webinar, ideal for online teaching, puts coronaviruses in context, invoking SEP’s, CCC’s and DCI’s in genetics, ecology, evolution, and immunology.
