Classic Experiments in Education Technology

Steven B. Oppenheimer


Classic experiments in Biomedicine are presented that inspire students to enthusiastically continue in this field, written by a U.S. Presidential Award winning, American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow. Four experiments are selected: the structure of DNA, the structure of the cell membrane, sugars in cell adhesion, and unconventional dealing with a deadly cancer problem. Papers, written mostly by students, from the author’s lab are also included that support the concept that students will enter a science research field if they are introduced to it by easy to read, enjoyable, papers. Some of the author’s papers strongly support one of the Classics presented, the role of sugars in cell adhesion. Using these Classics to teach students at all levels is presented, as the author has used them for decades, helping him win a US Presidential Award for Mentoring and supporting his election as Fellow, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) (Note 1). This approach helps students to understand the personalities involved in great discoveries, making them unforgettable.
