The University of Utah's Teach.Genetics website is a companion to their Learn.Genetics website, and both are part of the Genetic Science Learning Center. Visitors will find that Amazing Cells is one of at least a dozen lessons available on genetics for K-12 and higher education teachers, as well as public educators. The Amazing Cells lessons on Teach.Genetics are "print-and-go" lessons that are a supplement to the Amazing Cells online lessons found in Learn.Genetics. There are multiple exercises under the broader topics of "Cells Are Complex & Dynamic" and "Cells Communicate". Some of those activities include "Build-A-Membrane", where students create a 3-D cell membrane embedded with proteins. The "Dealing Signals" activity makes use of a deck of ordinary playing cards to introduce students to cellular interactions. The "Scientist Talk Videos" are talks originally recorded at the Amazing Cells Master Workshop, and cover such topics as "An Introduction to Cell Signaling" and "Cell Signaling: Research and Applications".
