This module offers a simulation of the classic origin of life experiment as originally performed by Stanley Miller and Harold Urey in 1953. The user selects chemicals, "sparks" the mixture, and finds out what was produced in the resulting "soup." The site also offers two video explanations of the original experiments by Stanley Miller.
6-8: 1B/M1b. Scientific investigations usually involve the collection of relevant data, the use of logical reasoning, and the application of imagination in devising hypotheses and explanations to make sense of the collected data.
5. The Living Environment
5F. Evolution of Life
9-12: 5F/H1. The basic idea of biological evolution is that the earth's present-day species are descended from earlier, distinctly different species.
9-12: 5F/H8. Life on earth is thought to have begun as simple, one-celled organisms about four billion years ago. Once cells with nuclei developed about a billion years ago, increasingly complex multi-cellular organisms evolved.
11. Common Themes
6-8: 11B/M4. Simulations are often useful in modeling events and processes.
