Virtual SUTS! Byte-size Biology

Welcome to Science Under the Virtual Stars! This month, we get to hear from Mackenzie M. Johnson all about how supercomputers (aka really powerful computers) can help biologists learn about the world around us. Join us tomorrow, Thursday, September 9th at 7:00 pm CDT! Below is a PDF full of links to activities for kids of all ages about genetics and biological variation, and a link to our virtual natural history tour of Brackenridge Field Laboratory.

      Whoops! Thanks for catching that typo in this post! And I’m sorry, but I’m not sure which newsletter you’re referring to as we haven’t sent any out this week. If it is one that comes directly from WordPress, I don’t believe we have any control over when those are sent. If you would like email updates from SUTS (in a more timely manner!), please feel free to Subscribe to RSS (button top right corner) or sign up for emails (there is a box to fill in your email on the right-hand side of the homepage). Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you!
