Replicators: Evolutionary Powerhouses
This website is an interactive learning tool that explores the concept of replicators as it relates to a number of different and diverse fields of study. Replicators - the fundamental units of any process of natural selection - were first defined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins as any entities of which copies are made. The concept of replicators has diverse applications in a variety of areas, including biology, sociology, linguistics, and philosophy. The site uses an interactive, hands-on style of instruction to engage visitors in an active process of learning and retaining information. Interactive demonstrations that are both entertaining and informative are used and integrated to reinforce major concepts and enrich traditional text-based education. Visitors are encouraged not only to investigate our demonstrations, but also to become part of our community by sharing their thoughts and opinions with other visitors.
