K-12 Education: Designs for RNA and Protein based Catalysts for Solar Energy Production for a Sustainable Future
The first goal of OuiShare Atlanta (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ouishareatlanta/) is to develop an online course with YouTube videos on the Open-Source online course development program EdX (https://www.edx.org/) for the http://porvir.org/ network using these two game programs for RNA and protein folding. Can you download and start playing these two games and let me know what you think?

The goal is to build on the lecture I gave to Prof. Van Huyssteen’s class Darwin and Theology. Here is a blog entry that summarizes a little:
Since sustainability ethics are vital to this effort, in the course I will draw heavily from the Australian philosopher Peter Singer of Princeton’s book The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty. It is a 2009 book by him. In this book, he argues that citizens of affluent nations are behaving immorally if they do not act to end the poverty they know to exist in developing nations. Vital to this effort is mindful use of fossil fuels and trying to end climate change by evolving technologies, ethical values, and lifestyles that reduce or eradicate reliance on fossil fuels.
