APS promotes innovative science teaching practices with "Frontiers in Physiology"

the Frontiers in Physiology has improved both their understanding of science and their approach to teaching.

Siamese Fighting Fish: The male fish of this species are notorious for their ritualistic and sometimes hostile behavior in threatening situations involving other males or even their own reflections in a mirror. In this experiment, teachers will place a mirror in front of the fish bowl to observe and compare the aggressive and submissive reactions of the fish in a threatening atmosphere.

The Elvis Experiments: This experiment, named after Elvis Presley, who had high blood pressure, tests different factors that may influence blood flow and pressure in various situations. Teachers will use tubing, beakers and liquids of varying viscosities (thickness) to simulate the flow of blood in vessels.

Project WISE: This interactive, online learning environment developed by the University of California Berkeley will take place in the high-tech computer facility at Airlie House. Teachers will participate in both hands-on and online activities and discussions to explore the debate on bacterial contamination in organically vs. traditionally grown foods.

APS began its summer research programs in 1990 with 10 high school science teachers. Since its beginnings, more than 220 teachers have participated in the laboratories of 130 APS members nationwide. Each teacher receives a grant of up to $8,500 for research laboratory expenses as well as travel expenses to the retreat and the APS annual meeting, Experimental Biology 2002.
