Life Chemistry (DNA etc,)
Living organisms perform chemical reactions all day, every day! These chemical reactions are what keep you alive! Learn about DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and other major biological molecules like lipids, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates.
Life Chemistry Video Games, Virtual Labs & Activities
Use forensic biotechnology to solve a crime in this fun, quirky mystery! Gather evidence, then use PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), restriction enzymes, and Gel Electrophoresis to figure out who stole the Ruby Royale!
Then, watch the stunning, spoofy conclusion!
Estimated duration: 1 hour.
Perform the steps of DNA replication to learn how DNA copies itself! Learn how special enzymes like helicase, primase, DNA polymerases, and ligase make this super important process happen!
Estimated duration: 30 minutes.
This short interactive model allows you to build nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA), as well as a model of a DNA molecule. It is also a short assessment to make sure that you understand DNA structure. Estimated duration: 10-15 minutes.
In this game, you are Mac, the Macromolecule Man! Using your molecule blaster, you will solve a variety of puzzles, building and using the key biological molecules that make life possible. Learn about carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and their building blocks as you play!
As a BioAgent, your job is to defend the world from biological threats, such as Dr. Vial's latest scheme. In this game, you will discover this scheme and learn how to use genetic engineering to make recombinant plasmids and transform bacteria. If successful, you will save humanity from Green Zombie Toxin! If not, it will be the end of the world as we know it!
ENZYMES are extremely important in Biology! Essentially EVERY life process relies for EVERY living thing relies on ENZYMES! So... it might be important to understand them (at least a little bit...) In this amazing interactive experience, you will learn about enzymes by playing games, performing virtual experiments, and solving puzzles! Welcome to ENZYMATIC (the ultimate enzyme learning experience!)
to build a protein in this fun game about protein synthesis. Learn about
transcription and translation as you build a protein the same way that a
real cell does!
