Epidemic! The World of Infectious Disease - Exhibit
This Web site, created to complement the museum's Epidemic! exhibit, provides an in-depth look at the world of infectious disease. It includes the following sections: Environmental Change looks at how a season of heavy snow and rainfall led to an outbreak of hantavirus in the Four Corners region of the southwestern U.S., and at the different habitat needs of microbes. Long-Term Changes examines how changes to the prehistoric landscape and in our living patterns since the development of agricultu

Sky Paths: Studying the Movement Celestial Objects
By using these activities, K-4 students will have the concrete experiences of observing, organizing, comparing, and describing the movement of objects that they observe in the sky. Students will also learn how early cultures viewed objects in the sky and created stories to explain the objects they observed. Then, students will create their own stories to explain their own observations.
"Like One Big Family": A Former Textile Worker Describes the Closeness of the Southern Mill Village
The southern textile mills, which had expanded dramatically during World War I, faced serious decline in the 1920s. New tariffs, the growth of textile manufacturing in other parts of the world and the shorter skirt lengths of the 1920s, which required less fabric, exacerbated the problems brought on by wartime overexpansion. Textile manufacturers responded by trying to cut wages and increase workloads. Nevertheless, textile workers often look back at the 1920s with genuine affection and nostalgi
Lament for "The Lost Pardner"
Although absent from Hollywood portrayals of the old West, homosexuality was surely a feature of life on the frontier. "The West," observe John D'Emilio and Estelle Freedman in their history of sexuality, "provided extensive opportunities for male-male intimacy. Some men were drawn to the frontier because of their attractions to men." Badger Clark was born in 1883 and grew up in Deadwood, South Dakota. His collection of western poems, Sun and Saddle Leather, was not published until the second de
Learning Planet Sizes
In this activity, learners use the concepts of greater than, less than, and equal to, in order to classify student height, object size, and planet size. They will build scale models of the planets based on their discoveries of planet size. In the extension, advanced learners download images of the planets and use NIH Image to identify and describe their size by comparing them to one another.
A Case of the Wobbles: Finding Extra Solar Planets
Students plot and analyze NASA data to determine the period of an invisible planet orbiting a wobbling star.

Here, they meet three kids and one scientist who dive deep when it comes to learning about the ocean: Gabriela, an 11-year-old from New York whose interest in marine biology began with a family trip she took to the West Indies when she was five. Gwyneth, an 11-year-old from California who likes observing the sea birds when she visits her father's beach house. Luke, a nine-year
This Web site, created to complement the Einstein exhibit, looks at the life and contributions of this extraordinary scientist and humanitarian.

Diana, a seven-year-old from New Hampshire who has hundreds of rocks in her collection. Ruthmabel, an eight-year-old from Washington State who built a Mars rover model at rocket camp and a model
You Decide: Should the US adopt a single-payer, Universal Health Care Plan?
This educational guide focuses on health care issues in the US and whether or not it would be beneficial to adopt a single-payer, universal health care plan. Students are invited to examine the arguments on both sides of the debate, developing critical thinking skills as they work through the activities. Students will learn how to support their arguments with evidence and reason. It is expected that at the end of this guide students will determine where they stand on this controversial issue.
Earth Rotation from Galileo Imagery: 3600 x Real-Time
This animation is one in a series created to show an accurate representation of the Earths rotation at different temporal resolutions. The animation is created from images taken by the Galileo spacecraft during a close pass of the Earth on December 11-12, 1990. The animations range from real-time, in which no rotation can be perceived, to 3600 times real-time, in which both the Earths rotation and cloud motion can bee seen. The series also includes an animation in which the Earths rotation has b

Essential Tremor - Station and Gait Exam - Gait Sub-exam - Patient 12
The patient is a 70-year-old Caucasian female who first noticed voice and head tremor about 15 years ago. She has had a gradual progression of this tremor that now causes her head to shake, her voice to tremor and her bilateral arm to tremor. The tremor is most noticed when the limbs maintain a posture or are in motion. Her writing is affected especially when she attempts to write small. Fine motor tasks have become more effortful as the years have passed. The tremor is worsened by fatigue. She
