"Communication System Design, Spring 2006"
" This course presents a top-down approach to communications system design. The course will cover communication theory, algorithms and implementation architectures for essential blocks in modern physical-layer communication systems (coders and decoders, filters, multi-tone modulation, synchronization sub-systems). The course is hands-on, with a project component serving as a vehicle for study of different communication techniques, architectures and implementations. This year, the project is focu
How to Create An In-Cell Bar Graph Using Open Office Calc.
This quick tutorial shows how to compare data using an in-cell bar graph in the Open Office Calc Program.
Junior Solar Sprint and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Competitions
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory hosts the U.S. Department of Energy's Junior Solar Sprint/Hydrogen Fuel Cell (JSS/HFC) Car Competitions. Middle School teams from all over the Colorado Region participate in this fun, educational and exciting event. Teams work together building solar and/or hydrogen fuel cell cars with guidance from a parent or teacher coach to compete in race and design categories. A "Spirit Award" is also presented to the team recognized for good sportsmanship. Building
Cell Division in Animals
This is a brief computer-animated video that describes differentiation in animals at the cellular level (cell division). Once the cells are differentiated they lose the ability to divide. As a result, one cannot grow a whole animal in a culture medium from a single cell. The growth of the whole animal in a single cell is only possible in the early stages of development - after the first one or two divisions. Other key words include: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm.
