Wild Animal Veterinarian
Most veterinarians take care of our common pets and livestock: dogs,
cats, horses, cows, the occasional sick hamster. Mark Pokras' patient
list is more unusual--today he could be treating a fox and an owl,
tomorrow it might be a turtle and a deer. See how math and science are fundamental no matter what species of animal you're treating. This motivating video shows the importance and activities related to this profession.

Teaching and learning in diverse university settings: analytic frameworks for integrating different
This paper describes progress on the TLRP project on “Enhancing teaching-learning environments in undergraduate courses”. The project is concentrating on differences and similarities that exist in the teaching-learning environments provided in mainly first and final unit course units in four contrasting subject areas and across the different settings provided in departments within those subjects. We have been collaborating with 17 departments across 15 universities and one college. The data
The Re-Convergence of Art and Science: A Vehicle for Creativity
Ever-increasing complexity in product design and the need to deliver a cost-effective solution that benefits from a dynamic approach requires the employment and adoption of innovative design methods which ensure that products are of the highest quality and meet or exceed customers' expectations. According to Bronowski (1976) science and art were originally two faces of the same human creativity. However, as civilisation advances and works became specialised, the dichotomy of science and art grad

If Fiber is the Medium, What is the Message? Next-Generation Content for Next-Generation Networks
By investigating price and capacity trends over the past century, Eli Noam shows that it is possible to predict the type, style, and genres of media content of a future ultra-broadband infrastructure, which allows a richer, more bit-intensive content. The nature of content is critical for the economic viability of an ultra-broadband infrastructure. This paper asks what types of media content we will have when we achieve widespread fiber optic networks. In the past, an expansion of transmission c

Scope and limitations of democracy
Challenging Democracy - 9th Dialogue on Science of the Academia Engelberg Foundation 2010 In a role play, participants assumed the task of governing different countries such as Germany, Canada, Kenya, Columbia, Pakistan and Serbia. On the one hand, they had the task to increase their country’s prosperity through fishing as the only source of income. On the other hand, they had to be careful to not lose the favour of the voters. This situation confronted several "governments" with real problem

6.777J Design and Fabrication of Microelectromechanical Devices (MIT)
6.777J / 2.372J is an introduction to microsystem design. Topics covered include: material properties, microfabrication technologies, structural behavior, sensing methods, fluid flow, microscale transport, noise, and amplifiers feedback systems. Student teams design microsystems (sensors, actuators, and sensing/control systems) of a variety of types, (e.g., optical MEMS, bioMEMS, inertial sensors) to meet a set of performance specifications (e.g., sensitivity, signal-to-noise) using a realistic
