The Holloway Series in Poetry: Aaron Kunin
A rising star in the poetry world, Kunin is also a literary critic and a novelist. His formally innovative work has been described as "tragicomic," and it is with a certain thrill that one realizes his poems have managed to bundle shame with hilarity, high tension with the highly ridiculous, sharp wit with ominous portents. His first book, Folding Ruler Star (Fence Books, 2005), was devised as a "value-neutral Paradise Lost" in which the structures of belief, shame, and hierarchy are explored b

The effects of acid rain on a stream in the forest
Cars and power plants that burn fossil fuels release smoke that is full of chemicals. These chemicals float into the atmosphere, get trapped in clouds, and make the rain more acidic. This is known as acid rain.
Sonia Sanchez: The Meaning of Malcolm X
Poet Sonia Sanchez, interviewed here for Eyes on the Prize, describes what the outspoken civil rights leader Malcolm X represented to African Americans in the 1960s.
Students learn about weight and drag forces by making paper helicopters and measuring how adding more weight affects the time it takes for the helicopters to fall to the ground.
Students design and build a paper rocket around a film canister, which is used as the engine. An antacid tablet and water are put into the canister, react to form carbon dioxide gas, and act as the pop rocket's propellant. With the lid snapped on, the continuous creation of gas causes pressure to build up until the lid pops off, sending the rocket into the air. The pop rockets demonstrate Newton's third law of motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.

Daphnia with beating heart, moving eye and antennae - note internal moving structures.
This course covers transport processes of mass, momentum, and energy from a macroscopic view with emphasis both on understanding why matter behaves as it does and on developing practical problem solving skills. The course is divided into four parts: introduction, conduction, convection, and radiation.

Through discussion and hands-on experimentation, students learn about the geological (ancient) carbon cycle. They investigate the role of dinosaurs in the carbon cycle and the eventual storage of carbon in the form of chalk. Students discover how the carbon cycle has been occurring for millions of years and is necessary for life on Earth. Finally, they may extend their knowledge to the concept of global warming and how engineers are working to understand the carbon cycle and reduce harmful CO2 e
