Solved! The Mystery of Anastasia Romanov
Time: 1:00-3:00 p.m. Ages: 10-13, with chaperone. In Russia, in 1918, the Romanov royal family was kidnapped and never seen alive again.

Many have stepped forward claiming to be part of the missing royal family, including the famous Anna Anderson. The Dolan DNA Learning Center encourages participants in this Saturday DNA! event to explore the uses of forensic DNA technology and learn how it was applied to the case. Participants will also discover how forensic anthropology identified the bones; learn the TRUE story of the Last Tsar of Russia and his family; and solve one of the biggest mysteries in history!

Walking Whales and Genetic Tales
Time: 1:00-3:00 p.m. Ages: 14-Adult; under 15 years chaperone required. Is there evidence that whales and hippos could be ancestral cousins? The genetic code contains information that can reflect the evolutionary journey of each organism. The accumulation of mutations over time results in the development of new species, although the physical appearance of two organisms may lead us to believe that few similarities exist, the secret of life begins at the molecular level. Through the analysis of DNA sequences, we can trace the connections that exist between life forms. In this activity, participants will: discuss the process of evolution and the role of genetic mutations; explore the ancient relationship between whales and hippos; and study genetic evidence to understand the similarities that link these two organisms.

92nd ESA ANNUAL MEETING - Held jointly with SER International
Ecology-based restoration in a changing world: How do we set goals for ecological restoration, and how can we assess its success? New scientific insights call for more sophisticated consideration of the goals and standards of restoration and, perhaps, of conservation of natural systems generally. What ecosystem attributes are to be restored, conserved, or preserved? How should these priorities be informed by ecological research? How can we assess the effectiveness of restoration? http://www.esa.org/sanjose

AP Biology: Transitioning to Inquiry-Based Labs
Inquiry-based labs allow students to engage in science practices that require them to think and act like scientists. The focus in AP Biology is shifting from content coverage breadth toward enduring understandings and scientific reasoning skills depth. This workshop will provide AP Biology teachers with a means to understand inquiry and its place in the classroom. Participants will learn strategies for modifying traditional labs and incorporating inquiry-based labs into their AP Biology curricula.
