HyperCard, application for the Macintosh computer, gives a computer user the ability to design and develop a piece of high quality, interactive software with out having to become a master programmer. The basic unit of HyperCard is the Card, onto which a combination of text and graphics can be placed. A series of Cards can be assembled into a functional unit called a Stack by using simple commands, or Scripts that are used to move throughout the Stack. The chief objective here is to have students work in a group to design and develop a HyperCard Stack on some topic in Biology. By doing so, students gain valuable hands-on experience in the use of computer technology in a science class and they gain valuable skills in learning to see the computer as a partner in creativity. Students also learn a great deal about their particular topic. In addition, these students produce a library of high quality interactive software that can be used by other students. Less

" This studio will investigate the social, programmatic, tectonic and phenomenological performance and character of a student gathering place on the MIT campus. Whether it is simply for socializing or for more specific events, the student gathering place will serve as a refuge from the vigorous educational environment of the Institute, and it will reinforce a critical sense of "place" through the almost logical organization of its program. The place will foster a casual discovery of "being": a reflection upon the student's own existence based upon participation in group events and an intellectual attitude toward acting. To create a space that inspires, rather than imposes: such a discovery is the foremost challenge of this studio." Less

Biospheres introduces the biosphere concept using a mobile with a leaf, the sun, animals, a zip lock bag sealed with air inside it, and a cloud balancing on it. It then relates the biosphere concept to the need for balanced, self-sustaining systems within spacecraft used for long-distance travel. As alien exo-biologists, students determine what type of ecosystem will be the most successful during their five week journey, and what type and number of organisms that will survive using the limited living space and resources of their biosphere. Once their one-gallon mayo jar biospheres are sealed, students observe their biospheres for a minimum of 5 weeks making regular observations, and sketching biosphere. As the weeks progress, students develop an understanding of the importance of biogeochemical cycles. Extension activities take concepts to next level. Less

In this project, students explored the world of scientists and their discoveries relating to cell research. Students were to design and build a ClarisWorks database that could answer their questions by browsing, searching, and sorting their database in a variety of ways. Students will 1) observe, compare and describe cell organelles in terms of their function, structure and operation; 2) enter and edit information in a database; 3) build and sort a student-designed database; and 4) find records in a database.

Transparent models of plant and animal cells are created as the products of cooperative learning and independent investigation. Students learn the parts of the cell, its structure, and the difference between plant and animal cells. Other than content, they also learn how to work in teams together and how to think critically and creatively to solve a problem. Each student is assigned a cell part to research, create, and place inside of a clear plastic drop cloth (the cell) the size of one-half of the classroom ceiling. An oral and written report is required after the whole cell is completed. Less

Break open that used musical toy and squish some Play-Doh over the circuit boards, and you will hear some weird and distorted sounds the manufacturer never intended! In this activity learners experiment with the strange conductive properties of Play-Doh in order to safely short-circuit a musical toy. This is an entertaining activity about basic circuitry, sounds, and short circuiting or "circuit bending" battery powered musical toys. Note: often it is difficult to unscrew the musical toys open, and the insides are delicate. So consider this when turning this into a group activity. Less
