The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign -- From Alchemy to Chemistry: Five Hundred Years of R
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign created this online exhibit to illustrate several of the major shifts in chemistry from alchemy to modern chemistry and how chemists changed the way in which they discussed their field. Curious students and educators can find descriptions of thirty-six chemistry books covering the years from 1500 to 1964. Historians will adore the images of pages from the old books and find source links for some of the books discussed.
Save Our City!
Students learn about various natural hazards and specific methods engineers use to prevent these hazards from becoming natural disasters. They study a hypothetical map of an area covered with natural hazards and decide where to place natural disaster prevention devices by applying their critical thinking skills and an understanding of the causes of natural disasters.
Ramp and Review
In this hands-on activity — rolling a ball down an incline and having it collide into a cup — the concepts of mechanical energy, work and power, momentum, and friction are all demonstrated. During the activity, students take measurements and use equations that describe these energy of motion concepts to calculate unknown variables, and review the relationships between these concepts.
Biodomes Engineering Design Project: Lessons 2-6
In this multi-day activity, students explore environments, ecosystems, energy flow and organism interactions by creating a scale model biodome, following the steps of the engineering design process. The Procedure section provides activity instructions for Biodomes unit, lessons 2-6, as students work through Parts 1-6 to develop their model biodome. Subjects include energy flow and food chains, basic needs of plants and animals, and the importance of decomposers. Students consider why a solid und
It’s all In the Package
In this activity, students explore the concept of “reducing” solid waste and how it relates to product packaging and engineering advancements in packaging materials. Students read about and evaluate the highly publicized packaging decisions of two major U.S. corporations. They will evaluate different ways to package items in order to minimize the environmental impact, while considering issues such as cost, availability, product attractiveness, etc. Students will explore “hydrapulping” an
Where Am I: Navigation and Satellites
How do we know where we are? What happens if you are completely lost in the middle of nowhere? Does technology provide tools for people lost in their travels? A person cannot usually determine an accurate position just by looking out a window in the middle of the ocean or vast area of land, particularly if it has not been charted before. In this lesson, students explore the concept of triangulation that is used in navigation satellites and global positioning systems designed by engineers. Also,
Edd Presnell: Dulcimer Maker
Edd Presnell, a mountain craftsman and native of Watauga County, North Carolina, demonstrates and comments on the construction of a dulcimer. Presnell learned his craft from his father-in-law. Film includes a brief performance on a finished dulcimer by his wife, Nettie. This 16mm film is archived in the Thomas G. Burton and Jack Schrader collection in the Archives of Appalachia, East Tennesse State University.

Ready, Set, SCIENCE!: Putting Research to Work in K-8 Science Classrooms
What types of instructional experiences help K-8 students learn science with understanding? What do science educators teachers, teacher leaders, science specialists, professional development staff, curriculum designers, school administrators need to know to create and support such experiences? Ready, Set, Science! guides the way with an account of the groundbreaking and comprehensive synthesis of research into teaching and learning science in kindergarten through eighth grade. Based on the recen
The lemon battery challenge
In this activity, students will learn how a chemical reaction can produce electricity. Learners will create a wet-cell battery to determine how much power it takes to run an electric car.
Explore a few of the ways plants pollinate each other in this video segment from Sexual Encounters of a Floral Kind.
Male Weedy Seadragon Carrying Eggs on Abdomen
This very short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a male Weedy Seadragon carrying eggs on his abdomen. Weedy seadragons are one of only two species of seadragons, the second is known as the leafy seadragon (Phycodurus eques) due to the greater number of leaf-like appendages along its body. Seadragons resemble the seahorses to which they are related, having a bony-plated body and elongated snout; their tails are not prehensile however. This is a great resource to help buil

Crown Forum: Otis Moss, Jr. Oratorical Contest
Nine finalists competed for the winning spots for the Otis Moss, Jr. Oratorical Contest. The topic for this year's competition is Men of Morehouse: Shattering the Silence Concerning Caliginous and Ineffectual Solutions to Global ills of Modern Society.
Electric Vehicles - the race is on
Experiential, hands-on learning is the goal of the WSU Electric Vehicle Team, one of 30 clubs in the College of Engineering and Architecture. Mentored by Kirk Reinkens, students design and build one-person vehicles powered by AC electrical systems. Their skills are tested in nationally recognized Electrathons, where drivers compete to see how fast and far their cars can go in an hour.
"The Prefix Kix" Song-Learn About Prefixes and Suffixes
