Multiple Sclerosis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Oculomotor, Trochlear, Abducens (CN III, IV, VI) Sub-exam
Shelly is a 38-year-old African American female who initially presented with transverse myelitis 2 years ago. A lumbar puncture revealed multiple oligoclonal bands in the cerebral spinal fluid. MRI has demonstrated numerous plaques in the bilateral cerebral white matter. She eventually went on to recover from her initial attack but since her second attack has continued to progressively worsen. Her gait and other motor functioning have deteriorated and she is now wheelchair bound.

Art in Engineering - Moving Art
Students learn how forces are used in the creation of art. They come to understand that it is not just bridge and airplane designers who are concerned about how forces interact with objects, but artists as well. As "paper engineers," students create their own mobiles and pop-up books, and identify and use the forces (air currents, gravity, hand movement) acting upon them.
Students construct a rocket from a balloon propelled along a guide string. They use this model to learn about Newton's three laws of motion, examining the effect of different forces on the motion of the rocket.
Watt meters to measure energy consumption
Students use watt meters to measure the power required and calculate energy used from various electrical devices and household appliances.
Energy Detectives at Work
Students search for clues of energy around them. They use what they find to create their own definition of energy. They also relate their energy clues to the engineering products they encounter every day.
Material Testing - Crossword
A crossword dealing with the various terms commonly used with material testing techniques.
Sam and Some Sticky Situations - Crossword
Online crossword puzzle based on the book in the Educational Company's Sunny Street series.
Climatic Areas Crossword
Printable crossword requiring students to fill in keywords associated with various climatic areas around the world. Answers are included.
SAMPEX - A Synoptic View of Earths Electron Radiation Belts: North Pole Energetic Fluxes from PET
The Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer, SAMPEX, measures fluxes of energetic particles from the sun, the Earths magnetosphere, and cosmic ray sources over a broad range of energies. The four instruments aboard SAMPEX are the Low-Energy Ion Analyzer (LEICA), The Heavy Ion Large Telescope (HILT), The Mass Spectrometer Telescope (MAST), and the Proton-Electron Telescope (PET).
Ocean and Climate: Chemical Coupling with the Atmosphere
The ocean and atmosphere continually exchange particles and gases in a kind of ongoing "dialogue" that influences regional and global climate. This site explains the chemical link between the ocean and atmosphere. Emphasis is on the ocean's ability to store and release water vapor and carbon dioxide, both of which contribute to the greenhouse effect. Features include text, a scientific illustration, and links to other relevant topics, data sets, and satellite missions.
Winter Storm Activity
This project explores factors that help create severe winter weather. An interactive simulation provides hands-on experience, followed by guiding questions and resource exploration.
To Clone or Not to Clone: That is the Question?
Students will learn the basics of cloning through some interactive web sites. Students will then be able to decide on whether to clone or not to clone and develop a well researched and supported debate topic. Students will make connections to the novel "The House of the Scorpion" after completing this project.

Plants That Aren't Plants: Mosses and Lichens
Mosses and lichens are not given much attention in introductory biology laboratory courses, in part because instructors lack skills necessary to cover the topic-namely, moss leaf cross sectioning and lichen chemical spot tests. Acquiring confidence in just these two techniques, as well as familiarity with basic terminology, lays a foundation for further investigation.
The Science Scoop: The Human Genome Project
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about the human genome project by clicking through an online slide show, hosted by kids, that answers these questions: What's a genome, anyway?What is the human genome project? What does it mean to me?
West Nile Fever: A Medical Detective Story
This BioBulletin Web site takes an in-depth look at the West Nile virus. The site includes text, videos, photographs, and interviews with key scientists. Tracking an Epidemic reports on how the link was made between sick crows and people during the summer of 1999 in New York City. West Nile Q&A answers more than 20 frequently asked questions, including "What is the West Nile virus?", "How did the virus reach the United States?", and "How can I protect myself from getting West Nile virus?"Taking
The arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn
Bruno Cautrès of Sciences-Po university on a seismic shock to French politics ahead of presidential elections next year
Klartext handlar i dag om att det kanske har varit en u-båt i vattnet utanför Stockholm och om att Sveriges försvar har dåligt med pengar.
What it Takes to Do Extreme Astrophysics
All over the planet, giant telescopes and detectors are looking (and listening) for clues to the workings of the universe. At the INK Conference, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy tours us around these amazing installations, taking us to some of the most remote and silent places on Earth. (14:09)
