Reptiles, and Mammals of the Great Lakes
||The CD-ROM "Amphibians, Reptiles, and Mammals of the Great Lakes" was designed by CyberNatural Software to educate school children and the general public about the animals associated with the largest freshwater lake system in the world, the Great Lakes.
||Witness the discoveries of the pioneering physicists Ernest Rutherford, Enrico Fermi, and J. Robert Oppenheimer. Read Albert Einstein's letter of warning of atomic bombs to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, then view the actual footage of the mushroom clouds rising above Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Formerly classified documents and photographs guide you through an extraordinary exploration of Cold War
|Biosphere: Developing Ecosystems
||Create your own virtual world with Launchpad Multimedia's Biosphere: Developing Ecosystems. This interactive simulation allows learners to model and investigate ecosystems. Learners are place strange creatures within the biosphere and observe their behaviour. These creatures have characteristics including diet, breeding capacity, longevity, hunger and thirst. Creatures will eat, drink or breed according to their life cycle and their interaction with their environment. The effect of creatures on their environment is also monitored. Explore a variety of biological principles including water and carbon cycles, biological control and population density.
|DNA: Molecule of Life
|| DNA: Molecule of Life is a detailed, ye concise, study of the structure and function of DNA. Through a mixture of content, animations and assessment, students learn about current scientific understandings of the biochemical nature of life. Areas of study include: The Cellular Basis of Life; The Eukaryotic Cell; The Structure of DNA; DNA Replication, Transcription and Translation; and Gene Mutation and Disease. Suitable for upper secondary school students.
|Genetics: Patterns of Inheritance
||This internationally renowned simulation is designed to assist educators and students in exploring the principles of inheritance. It provides students with a virtual Mendelian laboratory in which learners perform a variety of plant breeding experiments using suggested experiments or design their own. The results of different crosses can be analysed and used for subsequent experiments in a fraction of the time required for real-world breeding programs. Experimental topics include self pollination and monohybrid and dihybrid crosses. Models of inheritance include simple dominant/recessive, codominant and partial dominance models.
|Great Lakes Explorer: Biodiversity
||The CD-ROM "Great Lakes Explorer" was created by CyberNatural Software to allow users to participate in a virtual research expedition, while learning about the animals of the Great Lakes.
This is a comprehensive learning tool that provides both easily accessible and exciting information. Students are guided by research scientists in their examination of the effects of pollution and geography on the abundance of fish. Animations and photographs make it possible for students to test the toxicity of pesticides on aquatic animals, and to travel through time to explore the historical fish communities in Lake Erie.
||The New Voice CD-ROM, an interactive experience designed to illustrate the different options for communication after a total laryngectomy has occurred and to develop skills in making clinical decisions for voice and speech rehabilitation.
||A medical education CD-ROM that provides opportunity to learn about the process of oro-facial examination, targeting the knowledge and skills required by a speech-language pathologist.
Sun: What a Star
||This production is a virtual reality experience rendered for stereoscopic viewing for specialised hardware - this submission is the "left eye" view. "Our Sun: What a Star!" commences with a review of the Solar System, and the importance of the Sun within it. It goes on to describe the life cycle of stars: how they form, what powers them, and what becomes of them beyond the exhaustion of their fuel.
||Fusion, in accordance with AIP and APPEA's requests, produced a fully animated cartoon world on CD-ROM that both educates and entertains. Users are lead on a voyage starting in the age of dinosaurs through to the present day, learning about the search for, production and refining of petroleum, and being presented with interactive challenges along the way.
|The Australian Greenhouse Calculator
||The Australian Greenhouse Calculator was developed to enable individuals to explore how their lifestyles contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of air pollution.
|Teachers Online Primary Science
||The CD targets science teachers in primary and lower secondary schools. It aims to enhance teachers' understanding of science concepts through the use of user-friendly explanations and multimedia (animations, illustrations etc).
|Space Shuttle: The First 100 Flights
||CD-ROM documenting the first 100 flights of NASA's Space Shuttle. Includes astronauts, payloads and launch information.
