The Arches | University of St. Thomas
The arches are an important part of the St. Thomas community. New freshmen on campus walk through the arches onto campus while current UST students, faculty and staff applaud for them, welcoming them into their new home; graduating seniors walk back out through the arches as they leave St. Thomas and head out into the world. Also, UST legend says that the only way to become a "True Tommie" is to kiss another Tommie under the arches at midnight! Music by St. Thomas staff member Brett Johnson
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer uses a model to represent what is happening when substances dissolve in water, as well as a representation of two different solutions. The interviewer then asks for a prediction of what would happen when two clear solutions are mixed together. The interviewer uses the model to help the student build an understanding of what happened to form the precipitate. The student also changed
How can teenagers get enough sleep?
It's back to school time for K-12 students across the country -- when summer fun makes way for spelling bees, algebra and homework. How can parents ensure their kids are both mentally and physically prepared to impress and do their best from day one of the school year? University of Minnesota professor Michael Howell says teens, in particular, tend to biologically sleep in a different pattern than what school allows for: they can't fall asleep until later in the evening and therefore have diffic

Penn State's Deer Research Center studies herd health options
White tail deer studies at Penn State can be traced back to the 1920s. Throughout the years, a variety of research initiatives have focused on improvements in nutrition as well as studies in buck and doe growth, healthy reproduction cycles and humane repellents and fencing to protect forest regeneration. Current research at the facility includes a collaborative effort with the National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. This study focuses on the overpopulation of deer herds in m

Symba: a Framework to Support Collective Activities in an Educational Context
Symba is a Web-based framework designed to support collective activities in a learning context. It has been constructed with a double objective, (1) make students explicitly work out their organization and (2) provide tailorability features to allow the students to decide about the tools and resources they want to be accessible in order to achieve the tasks they have defined. Symba dissociates an organizational level and an activity level. The organization level allows students to organi
River City Project
As visitors to River City, students travel back in time, bringing their 21st century skills and technology to address 19th century problems. With funding from the National Science Foundation, we have developed an interactive computer simulation for middle grades science students to learn scientific inquiry and 21st century skills. River City has the look and feel of a video game but contains content developed from National Science Education Standards, National Educational Technology Standards, a
A Family Corresponds: Polish Immigrants in the Early 20th century
Many immigrants to the United States wrote letters back home. At the time they were written, the missives shaped the expectations of those who would soon make the same journey; today, they gave historians invaluable first-hand testimony of the immigrants' own experiences. These seventeen letters involved the children of a retired Polish farmer named Raczkowski. Adam Raczkowski went to the United States in 1904 with the financial assistance of his sister Helena Brylska [later Dabrowskis] and his
Spartan Sagas: Kent Johnson
Kent Johnson, who was recruited to Michigan State as a swimmer, earned a bachelor's degree from the College of Natural Science in 1991 and a medical degree from the College of Human Medicine in 1995. He recalls the "unique atmosphere of togetherness" he found on the swim team and how it helped him succeed. "The boys on the swim team took me in-made me a part of the Spartan family."

Students observe the relationship between the angle of a catapult (a force measurement) and the flight of a cotton ball. They learn how Newton's second law of motion works by seeing directly that F = ma. When they pull the metal "arm" back further, thus applying a greater force to the cotton ball, it causes the cotton ball to travel faster and farther. Students also learn that objects of greater mass require more force to result in the same distance traveled by a lighter object.

Defining the scope of responsibilities: the Great Lakes region
The return and reintegration of refugees and IDPs is one of the most pressing challenges faced by the international community today. Recently back from a visit to the Great Lakes region, UNHCR's Assistant High Commissioner for Operations will discuss the local settlement of refugees in Tanzania and the return and reintegration of refugees in Burundi. Dr Chaloka Beyani, Legal Advisor to the Secretariat of the International Conference on the Great Lakes, will situate this problem within the Great
Financial Crises And Crisis Economics: Past, Present And Future.
As early as 2005 Roubini speculated that house prices would soon sink the economy, and in 2006 warned the IMF that the United States was likely to face a catastrophic housing bust resulting in deep recession. Back then he was nicknamed 'Dr Doom' by the New York Times. In hindsight, economists have called him a prophet.
