The Winter Update is Nearly Here

What better way to welcome a new year than with new content? You already have one sneak peek at a new experiment headed your way that we shared a couple weeks ago. Could you figure out what it was?

One part plant behavior, another part tissue structure...

One part plant behavior, another part tissue structure…

The image is an impression, not a tissue sample. That means what your students will see will be only the top layer of cells in the tissue. Those guard cells also have a pretty distinctive appearance in the several regions where they are visible…

It's so close. Let's have some fun while we wait.

If you’ve already figured out our last experiment (or are just hungry for more to puzzle out over break), we’ve got some new images to share. These are also views that your students will have when they perform the newest experiment in the lineup. Can you identify these samples?

View #1 - These two specimens share some key characteristics, but also have some important differences.

We’ll compare different kinds of cells…

Celery Mitochondria

View #2 – Look closely. What details can you identify?

We’ll peer inside cells…

View #3 - Now what is that???

We’ll also develop our abilities to prepare samples and perform microscopy treatments. The samples above will build on the skills of related labs that you already know. We’ll get more inquiry bang for our skill-investment buck.

Enjoy your holiday, have fun identifying our new samples, and we’ll welcome you back for the spring semester with brand new content in Biology Rocks Ed. 2.1!
