Summary:Produced collaboratively by the California Academy of Sciences and Khan Academy, this online course for high school (and adult) learners takes students on a virtual expedition investigating the discovery of life on Earth. Through more than 30 tutorials, students explore all aspects of biodiversity: what it is, why it's important, where it's found, how it comes into existence, how it can be studied, why it's threatened, and how it can be protected.
