Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

Kinect Code Camp 2011: Team Funnect Last week we had our Kinect launch with a special Channel 9 Live event. Just prior to this we held a 24 hour Code Camp to allow developers to play with the Kinect SDK for 24 hours and see what they could come up with. I interviewed the teams after the event to take a look at their project and get an idea of the challenges and surprises they found as they worked with the SDK. Team Funnect includes Fabio Matsui, Alex Wiggins, and Ruma Paul. The Funnect Team had a cool project using a Parr

Protecting the Mummified Troll
Students are introduced to the (hypothetical) task of developing an invisible (non-intrusive) security system to protect the school's treasured mummified troll! Solving the challenge depends on an understanding of the properties of light. After being introduced to the challenge question, students generate ideas and consider the knowledge required find solutions. They watch a portion of the "Mythbuster's Crimes and Myth-Demeanors" episode ($20), which helps direct their research and learning towa
Plant Growth Responses to a Nitrogen Gradient
Techniques used in setting up field experiments to study the growth responses of herbaceous plants to a resource gradient will be discussed and demonstrated in the field. Methods of setting up light and nutrient gradients, soil sampling, seed collection and preparation, data collection and analysis will be included. Participants will observe on-going studies in the field at the Cedar Creek Natural History Area, and view slides of smaller scale Puse experiments.
Grasshoppers, Ants and Locusts: the future of the world economy [Audio]
