Great Zoom out of Beltsville, MD: Beltsville Agricultural Research Center
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

Aquí tienen una canción para el de Día de Muertos. El grupo que canta se llama "Scherzo" y son de Querétaro, México. (1:23)

Petri Dish Circus (MWV12)
See the history of microbiology in nine scenes of gags, burlesque, drollery and song. Produced by Active Cultures, the vernacular theater of Maryland, Petri Dish Circus is a play based off of the classic non-fiction novel Microbe Hunters by Paul Henry de Kruif. Much like the original book first published in 1926 that describes 12 historical milestones in science, Active Cultures reenacts "the daring-do of Louis Pasteur in his Parisian lab, the Scotch fortitude of Ronald Ross as he travels throug
Order in Spontaneous Behavior
Brains are usually described as input/output systems: they transform sensory input into motor output. However, the motor output of brains (behavior) is notoriously variable, even under identical sensory conditions. The question of whether this behavioral variability merely reflects residual deviations due to extrinsic random noise in such otherwise deterministic systems or an intrinsic, adaptive indeterminacy trait is central for the basic understanding of brain function. Instead of random noise

This is a very interesting physics demonstration built to visualize the concept of standing waves. Sound from a CD player is used to create pressure nodes in a tube of flammable gas. Three different songs are played and the different frequencies in each make different shaped waves. The video consists of the experiment only with no explanation, therefore teacher explanation would be needed. (02:22)
