High school biology website with flash animations. Requires current Flash player.
 
Mixed Flash:
 
If it's not a science quiz or game but it's animated in some way and useful for teaching, it's probably here ... on the Mixed Flash page!

Here you'll find a growing collection of Flash animations designed to illustrate specific processes or concepts in high school general science or biology.

Many of these animations are what I use in class via demonstration so they might be more appropriate as a "teacher" aid than as a stand-alone item for students. You might not even be sure how to use the animation or where to click to make it "do stuff". That's more true for some animations than for others. At any rate, I'm giving you access to all of these and hoping you will find some of them useful in your studies.

As with all resources on zeroBio, follow the grade flags to find stuff that is intended for your grade and course (ie. for grade 11 biology and for grade 10 science). The symbol indicates an animation with sound and indicates an animation without sound.
