Description:

In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students will be introduced to the concept of fluorescence and how this method allows scientists to better analyze objects at a molecular level. The site is interactive and allows students to interact with virtual cells and tag them just as a scientist would. The focus of the topic can be applied to many different fields, such as: mineralogy, biochemistry, medicine, forensics and biotechnology. The activity itself is a java-based interactive resource built upon the free, open source Molecular Workbench software. In addition, visitors will find an overview of the activity, assessments, and concepts and their correlation to AAAS and NSES standards.
