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
Breaking Up is Hard to Do
The collapse of the Soviet State in 1991 was followed by Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudayev's declaration of the Chechen Republic's independence from Moscow. Concerned over the loss of its territorial integrity, Russian troops invaded the breakaway republic and a civil war ensued.

Fighting in Chechnya continues to this day, although on a relatively smaller scale. The W

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
Discover and apply principles of genetic inheritance by studying the inheritance patterns of fruit flies in a virtual environment. You will work on a virtual lab bench from which you can order fruit fly mutants from a web merchant, mate the flies in an incubator, anesthetize flies for observation, examine flies under a microscope, and analyze the data from offspring to determine patterns of inheritance. Your task is to propose hypotheses, design experiments, and analyze and interpret the data fr
