Campbell Biology Course: Useful for AP Bio, IB Bio, and Olympiads

3rd session

The IBO Chairman hailed Campbell's biology as the "Bible" of biology. It is a fascinating book. If you love Biology, I am sure that you will enjoy it!
Campbell Biology consists of 8 UNITS and 56 Chapters. I will try to go over 1-2 chapters per week based on the potential of the class. If I see that the class needs more time to Understand the topics, I will lower the speed making it 1 chapter per 2 weeks.
Some chapters will be skipped and I will ask the students to study them independently.
Hope to see you!
Kind Regards,
Mohammadamin Y

College-level Medical Immunology - Infection Immunity

11th session

As suggested by its name, this course is going to be about medical immunology, more specifically infection immunity. In addition to the immunology part, this series is going to dig deep into various infectious diseases. Examples might include 2019-nCoV, Ebola virus, HIV, etc. This would be a rigorous course but doesn't require prior knowledge in immunology. However, it would help if you have any. In addition to the sessions, there would also be seminars, games, practices to help you learn about expertise in this field. After all, it is also a great idea to just immerse yourself in knowledge about immunology. Come and have fun!

⚛︎🔥Hot Scientific Conversations🔥⚛︎

Starts

How ethical are synthetic biology and cloning? How can AI be used to address healthcare disparities? What unintended consequences could it have? Why are scientists releasing billions of mosquitoes to the wild?

You can expect some of what will be discussed to look like those questions -- none are limited to biology and I will be receptive to topics you guys can offer! Please participate in this informal series, ready to learn, for fun!!

My hope with this series is that you not only improve your scientific literacy but also your communication and critical thinking skills, which will be applicable in any field you choose to pursue, science or not. Towards the end of the series, we will provide dedicated learners with an exciting FUN project that you WON’T want to miss!

General Structure of Meetings (may vary):
1) Concise overview, key aspects, relevance and current implications of topic
2) Random breakout rooms; each group will explore a specific aspect of the topic in more detail
3) Reconvene: Each group (representative or shared) will share their key insights (this will be important for the guided discussion)
4) Guided discussion with prepared critical questions based on everyone's input; there will also be follow-up questions
5) Your final thoughts/reflections; summarization of main insights, questions, and conclusions
6) Topics you want to see in the future: put them in the chat!
7) Post-meeting discussion forum with a burning question in the SHW group chat related to the topic (short ~1-2 sentence response)

Expectations and Prerequisites: Just come ready to actively learn and contribute from and to the discussion. Whether you have all the science experience in the world or just beginning to see what science offers, everyone is welcome to engage and have fun in our informal series; all you need to bring to meetings is your enthusiasm for science!
