This CD-ROM provides comprehensive information on the controversial topic of stem cell research. There is material from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the White House. It includes scientific information and discussions of bioethics and legal implications, and much more. In addition, there is detailed coverage of the Human Genome Research Program and related genetic research, including medical implications and human case studies.
Over 41,000 pages are reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software – allowing direct viewing on Windows and Apple Macintosh systems. Reader software is included.
Our CD-ROMs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents – they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work utilizing the benefits of the Adobe Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed, searched by finding specific words, or printed without untold hours of tedious research and downloading. Vast archives of important public domain government information that might otherwise remain inaccessible are available for instant review no matter where you are. This book-on-a-disc makes a great reference work and educational tool. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and portable – everything you need to know, from the federal sources you trust.
The new science of stem cell research offers much hope for people who have terrible diseases. Scientists have already made progress but the most promising area of the research is mired in controversy. It involves human embryos. Many people oppose this work. Finding a balance may be the toughest challenge of all.
MudWatt engages kids in science in a whole new way, using the power of mud! It harnesses the power of electricity-generating microbes naturally living in the soil beneath your feet. Kids experiment with different types of soil (and food from the fridge) to maximize their power. The free MudWatt Explorer App lets kids measure their power, track their MudWatt’s microbe growth, and unlock an awesome educational comic book. You can even power a digital clock and other electronics using the power of microbes!
A BIO-ENERGY PET: This Award-winning STEM kit lets you build your own living fuel cell that feeds on soil!
FUN: Light up an LED and power a clock using microbe power. The more microbes you grow, the faster the LED blinks!
ENGAGING: Experiment by adding stuff from your fridge (like Gatorade) to maximize your MudWatt’s power
SMART: Track the growth of your microbe population and unlock chapters of “The Electric Microbe” comic book with the free MudWatt Explorer App
Pack includes: 6 power-harvesting graphite disks, 3 LED blinker boards, digital clock, 3 graduated containers, nitrile gloves, 20-page educational instructions, and the MudWatt Explorer App!
