View Resource Muscle Loss in Space

In this activity students measure the change in the area of calf muscle from transverse MRI images collected from an astronaut before and after a prolonged journey in space. They measure and compare the total area of calf muscle from before and after flight to determine if muscle loss has occurred. The lesson introduces some reasons for the muscle loss, measures to reduce the loss, and other...

View Resource Breathing Lessons

Here learners investigate, diagnose, and assess the severity of emphysema in the lungs of three patients using transverse CT images of the upper and lower lungs. Students use the imaging software WebImage, a Web-based customized version of ImageJ, to determine the area of "dead air" in each section and hence the extent of emphysema.

View Resource Animals in Motion

In this lesson, learners use a Flash animation running in a browser to study how animals and humans move. Students examine images captured by Eadweard Muybridge in the late nineteenth century; by starting, slowing, and stopping the animation, learners gain valuable insights into biomechanics of bipeds and quadrupeds.

View Resource Workshop: Teaching Science by Ocean Inquiry

This summer workshop is designed to introduce teachers to ocean and climate related processes that can be used as a vehicle to teach general physical concepts (e.g. density, buoyancy, pressure, heat and temperature, waves), using a variety of hands-on activities. It will foster a network between teachers, scientists and experts in education. The workshop is intended for high school and middle...

View Resource Ramps and Ratios

In this activity students view and analyze images of ramps and steps to see if they conform to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students measure horizontal and vertical distances and compute the percent slope for each image. Image measurements are performed using WebImage, a Web-based, customized version of ImageJ.
