Favorite Demonstration: How Scientists Use Critical-Thinking Skills -- Isolating Both Total RNA and Protein Using the Same Small Organ

Journal of College Science Teaching -- May/June 2006

Undergraduate biology programs are currently undergoing reform to involve students in biomedical research. Engaging students in more active, hands-on experiments allows students to discover scientific principles for themselves, and to develop techniques of critical thinking and problem solving. This models the world of real scientific research, where scientists are confronted with specific problems each day, often dealing with experimental design.
