Extreme Biology: Student Blogging

Visit ExtremeBiology!

I’ve posted about this before, and have ExtremeBiology featured as an RSS Feed at the bottom of this page. For those who have yet to visit though, check out Stacy Baker’s Extreme Biology website. Clearly an inspirational Biology teacher, her students have been blogging and podcasting about Biology. Some are now featured bloggers on Nature’s Scitable learning resource. Way to go!

It looks like Stacy is taking a break from teaching (it is an exhausting career!) – but hopefully not the blog. Thank-you for your work and congratulations and good luck to your graduating students.

Extreme Biology & The Rap Guide to Evolution

Double the fun – I came across this short TED Talk (some strong language) via Extreme Biology, a great collaborative high-school Biology blog.

Extreme Biology is maintained by Ms Baker, a teacher from the ‘North-East US’ and her Biology classes. Her students take the lead, blogging about AP Biology, Science in the news, podcasting, interviewing scientists and even taking part in the Science Online 2011 conference. Wow. They do such a good job, I’ve featured their blog as one of the RSS feeds at the base of this page, so we can keep up with their work.

Recently, in honour of Darwin Day 2o11, they posted this TED videoThe Rap Guide to Evolution, exploring evolutionary psychology, by Baba Brinkman:
