BioQUEST in the Press

"Problem Posing, Problem Solving, and Persuasion in Biology Education" by Nils S. Peterson and John R. Jungck appeared in Academic Computing, March/April 1988, pp 14-17, 48-51. This article was "reprinted" in the last issue of Nautilus.

"Educational Simulations and Tools in Biology" in Wheels for the Mind 5 (1): 23-26 (1989).

"BioQUEST" in Syllabus (An information source for publishers in higher education) Number 5 : 2-3 (April, 1989).

BioQUEST's Academic Computing article on the 3P's was reviewed in Biochemical Education 17 (2): 112 (April, 1989) in the "Monitor" section. Charles F. A. Bryce of Edinburgh, Scotland, concludes his article thus: "The article is well written and should be given very serious consideration by all science educators, particularly those in the biological sciences."

The Apple II version of the Genetics Construction Kit was also recently reviewed in the Quarterly Review of Biology 64 (1): 117 (March, 1989), reviewer Bernard D. Tunik, of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, concludes: "The nature of the design alters the nature of teacher-student collaboration because neither the teacher nor the student has immediate access to the [sic] answer. The teacher acts as coinvestigator with the student."
