Title: Exploratorium's Origins: From Jungle to Lab: The Study of Life's Complexity
Url: http://www.exploratorium.edu/origins/belize-london/index.html
Publisher: Exploratorium (Organization)
Description: The Exploratorium in San Francisco has a smart-looking website that highlights the cooperation between London's Natural History Museum and the Las Cuevas Research Station in Belize. The subject of this joint effort is the complexity of life and why it is studied with such intensity. The website is divided into the sections "People", "Ideas", "Tools", "Place" and "Live". The section entitled "Place" explains the connection between the Natural History Museum and the Las Cuevas Research Station. The "People" section highlights the researchers at the Research Station in the jungle of Belize, and what they study specifically. Visitors can scroll over the pictures of the researchers to read a brief bio. Particularly interesting is the "Tools" section, which shows the level of detail the researchers get at with their tools. "DNA analysis", "Scanning Electron Microscope", hand collecting, and "Geographic Information Systems" are the tools that visitors can learn more about by scrolling over the respective images.
