HISTORY WITH SCIENCE

OH provides short, entertaining stories about little-known people and events told with a science emphasis. But, you don't need to be a scientist to enjoy them! Use only the links you'd like or read only what you want.

 

Created with the help of educators and students, each OH comes equipped with extensive online resources (comparative, supplemental, timelines, and videos), as well as  curated "Rabbit Hole" searches that lead the reader through scholarly articles, books, news, and images. 

DIGIMORPH

High resolution scans of fossils can be downloaded to 3D Printers

University of Texas, Austin

Department of Geological Sciences

"The Digital Morphology library is a dynamic archive of information on digital morphology and high-resolution X-ray computed tomography of biological specimens. Browse through the site and see spectacular imagery and animations and details on the morphology of many representatives of the Earth's biota."

One of the most impressive features of DigiMorph is their 3-D printing capabilities. Not only can you create replicas of a specimen, but you can scale a specimen up or down in size.

 

DigiMorph also has a library of printable STL files of specimens that can be downloaded and printed at other 3-D printers.
