Al 88, Si 12 (wt%), eutectic alloy
This alloy is of the eutectic composition. From the melt a eutectic is formed between aluminium solid solution and virtually pure silicon. Slow solidification produces a very coarse microstructure. The eutectic comprises large plates of silicon in the aluminium matrix. This microstructure displays poor ductility due to the brittleness of large silicon plates. The microstructure is normally refined through either rapid solidification, which lets the silicon phase assume a fibrous form, or by a pr

Police Intern Program Readies Future Officers For Careers
PULLMAN, Wash.-- Students at Washington State University interested in a career in law enforcement have a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience. The WSU Police Intern program allows students to learn the ins and outs of police work, from ethics and drug identification, to traffic stops and handcuffing suspects. Sophomore Margaret Cornell is one of the current interns with WSU Police. After internships back at home in Montana, she said the WSU program is a great way to learn if law

Smithsonian American Art Museum Education
We have digitized and indexed dozens of SAAM's free educational materials for your use. Teacher guides are listed with corresponding standards and grade levels for your convenience. Be sure to check back periodically, as more resources will be added. SAAM's online features contain interactive or media-rich assets that can easily be used by educators in the classroom. Students can learn by viewing media or taking part in various online activities. Online activities such as Catlin Classroom have
Creating the Past: Understanding Artifacts
After studying the historic events of Catlin's life, this project allows students to imagine the material culture of the time. They will become archaeologists and anthropologists, looking back on previous cultures for clues as to the motives and inspirations for the choices that shaped their lives. Each student will bring in a fabricated artifact from Catlin's life, resulting in a museum exhibit in the class.
NASA KSNN What changes a shadow's size?
Light is a form of energy. It interacts with matter, or the material that makes up an object, in different ways based upon the qualities of that material. Light passes through objects that are transparent. These items appear to be clear. Materials that are translucent let some light pass through, but this light is scattered. These items look milky or fuzzy. Some materials are reflective, or bounce light back. Reflective items are shiny. And objects that are opaque block the light.
