"Second Life" Gene Pool

255_1Check out the Gene Pool on Second Life's Info Island, which explores the laws of inheritance (physical traits of a plant could be thought of terms of pairs of parental factors), which were discovered by Johann Gregor Mendel in the mid-nineteenth century. The Abbey of Saint Thomas in Mendel’s Garden is patterned after the still active monastery in the Czech Republic in Brno. Textures used in Second Life have been donated by the Mendel Museum. 

While you're there check out Second Life's InfoIsland with a heads up on upcoming interactive Marie Antoinette Exhibit, a book discussion of Sir Walter Scott's Invanhoe, and Squirrelverse, a cool cafe for teens 18 and over to hang and discussion life and learning with adult educators and librarians,
