Polyak, Steven – Teaching Science, 2014
Modern drug discovery programs require the contribution of researchers in a number of specialist areas. One of these areas is structural biology. Using X-ray crystallography, the molecular basis of how a drug binds to its biological target and exerts its mode of action can be defined. For example, a drug that binds into the active site of an…

Downs, Nathan; Parisi, Alfio – Teaching Science, 2010
A method is described for building a cost effective digital circuit capable of monitoring the solar radiation incident upon a remote solar cell. The circuit is built in two sections, the first, digitises the analogue voltage produced by the solar cell at a remote location and transmits the received signal to the second receiver circuit which…

Burns, Terry – Teaching Science, 2010
Australia would have to be one of the best countries in the world in which to live. The problem is that Australia is a very big place and, as a result, some rural and remote students do not enjoy the same opportunities as their suburban counterparts. Over the last two years the University of Newcastle's SMART program has been working with local…

Carolan, Jim; Prain, Vaughan; Waldrip, Bruce – Teaching Science, 2008
There is now broad agreement that learners in primary and secondary school science need to know how to interpret and construct subject-specific ways of representing science activity and knowledge. There is also growing recognition that students are more motivated and learn more when they have opportunities to refine understandings through revising…
