From the Night of The Living Dead to the White Walkers of Westeros, the undead have have spread far and wide. But did you know there might also be zombies in our DNA? ‘Zombie’ genes include portions of DNA that no longer serve their original functions. These genes “die” due to accumulated variations that prevent them from functioning normally, but over time, with the right combination of mutations over generations, can come back to life. Spooky, right? #helixdna#genomics#dnagenetics#genome#scienceiscool#halloween#zombies#undead#halloween
No, this isn’t a spider from space 🕷 This is a video of a tiny pore popping on the surface of an explosive. 💥 New research findings show that it’s not not just what an explosive is made of that contributes to its sensitivity. It’s physical structure also plays a role. The Livermore researchers found that the size and spacing of pores on the surface of HMX, a powerful explosive material, contributes to its sensitivity. The new insight may allow explosive researchers to engineer explosives that are safer to work with and use. Learn more about his impactful research by checking out the link in our bio.
⚛Happy Monday STEM Fam! 🔮 🍬🍭CANDY SCIENCE STEM ACTIVITIES! You've asked for it and now I've got it up and ready for ya!!! This is one of my popular candy science experiments and it's just in time for #halloweenscience Everytime I do this experiment, the kids are ALWAYS amazed at how this colorful reaction works! . . 🍭You can take as many variations of 3 candy types and ask your students which one would react the quickest to cause a💥 color change! 🍭The lollipop? 🍬The Powdered sugar stick? 🍭The smarties? . . . Once the reaction occurred, they were AMAZED at the results. ⚛ I've received a ton of DMs inquiring about the recipe and how did I do this. If you want the recipe, click the link in my bio and go to my #teacherspayteachers store to get your copy! It comes with an activity guide so you can make it effective for your scholars. 🔮It's a great activity when testing the rate of reactions based upon a variety of variables. It's also great to talk about oxidation and reduction experiments in your #chemistrylabs Chemistry is fun!

There is a larger world, vast enough to include immortality.... Our spiritual natures belong to this larger world ...
