Strand: Scientific Understanding (biological science) and Science Inquiry Skills

Teaching anatomy, including the body systems and structure and function, is an integral part of science. But let’s be honest, hands-on dissection isn’t for everyone!
Students use Virtual Reality to experience the dissection of a frog. They are guided by a virtual scientist as they use tools for the dissection.
The accompanying virtual tutorial provides further instructions to help students develop a deeper understanding of the process and biological systems. Students are able to move through the process at their own pace.

Overview of the role of a Biologist
Are you a high school student interested in biology or perhaps you teach biology? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Biology is the basis for many important jobs of the future. Biologists have specific knowledge regarding biological systems and mechanisms that control living entities of all shapes and sizes from the biggest to the smallest of living things. Biology skills are required in sectors such as environment, health and technology development. If your biology research is Fundamental Research then your job is to help uncover new insights about mechanisms that apply to living matter. If you are undertaking Applied Research you are trying to improve existing processes or invent new processes and gain knowledge in fields such as medicine and industry.

Some famous biologists include: Charles Darwin, Elizabeth Blackburn, Marie Stopes, Günther Enderlein, and Charles Fleming. You can find out more about being a biologist here at wikipedia.
