Internet Scout Project
This Topic in Depth discusses the variety of instruments used to collect climate and weather data. The first two websites provide simple introductions to the many weather instruments. Bethune Academy's Weather Center (1) discusses the functions of psychrometers, anemometers, weather balloons, thermometers, and barometers. The Illinois State Water Survey (2) furnishes many images of various instruments that collect data daily for legal issues, farmers, educators, students, and researchers. The th

With the exception of orchestral performances and truly "unplugged" concerts, today's music has evolved into a very hi-tech industry. It takes elements from many disciplines, including computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering, mathematics, and physics. Because music technology encompasses everything from audio compression and encoding to advanced sound equipment, this Topic in Depth has quite a broad scope.A decent introduction to some aspects of music technology (1) mainly deals
Evaluation of a visually categorized search engine
World Wide Web is developing with the increasing demands of the users and the search engines are becoming an indispensable tool in order to find information in Internet. While web is developing day by day, people require adapting themselves to the developing conditions rapidly. Also, the intensive workload requires that people should use the time properly. Using search engines effectively turns out to be a vital. The purpose of this study is to investigate the possible search behavior of the use
Student Modelling based on Belief Networks
Belief networks provide an important way to represent and reason about uncertainty significant factors for modelling students. These networks provide a way of structuring such models, and allow a system to use a systematic approach when gathering information about the scope of the students knowledge. This work also provides a theoretically-sound way to update the student model, based on the concept of a dynamic belief network. The relationship to related research is discussed. Finally, the

Building the Channel Tunnel
How do you build a tunnel 32 miles long -- under water? This video segment adapted from Building Big, follows the construction of the Channel Tunnel (nicknamed "Chunnel"), the engineering wonder that connects England to France.
Automatic Door Opener
The engineering design process involves many steps. Not only must an engineer be able to devise a solution to a problem, he or she must also be ready to test and evaluate that solution to reach the best result. To successfully complete the design process, an engineer must be able to identify design flaws and learn from his or her mistakes. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, learn about the design process as cast members create automatic door openers that enable them to open their bedroom d
Mother Frances X. Cabrini, Ave Maria Grotto, Cullman, Alabama
This image is part of a series of colorized photographs of the Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman, Alabama. Postcard text: (front) Statue: Mother Frances X. Cabrini -- 1850-1917. First canonized American saint. From folder: Brother Joseph Zoettl, O.S.B., a Benedictine monk at Saint Bernard Abbey, began experiments with concrete miniatures early in the 20th century. Abbot Bernard Menges, recognizing the popularity of Bro. Joseph's work, ordered construction of a park on the hillside in front of Saint Be
The Collapse: An Engineer's Perspective
This media-rich interview from the NOVA Web site explores the collapse of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers from an engineering perspective and includes an examination of the effects of heat on the structure of metal.
Not So Neutral Views
Students are introduced to acids and bases, and the environmental problem of acid rain. They explore ways to use indicators to distinguish between acids and bases. Students also conduct a simple experiment to model and discuss the harmful effects of acid rain on our living and non-living environment, as well as how engineers address acid rain. In an associated literacy activity, students learn how persuasive techniques are used to develop an argument, and create an environmental case study.

Environmental History Timeline
Students develop critical thinking skills by interviewing a person who has perspective on environmental history. Students explore the concept of a timeline, including historical milestones, and develop a sense of the context of events.
Using Stress and Strain to Detect Cancer!
This module was written for a first year accelerated or AP physics class. It is intended to provide hands-on activities to teach the concepts of stress, strain and Hooke’s law. During the unit, students will apply the concepts learned through the lessons to solve the following engineering challenge: Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer related death among women (Papas, 253) and the American Cancer Society has indicated that mammography is the best early-detection tool available.
Examples of Campus-based Learning
This site provides several examples of campus-based learning. Topics include environmental assessment, the nitrogen budget, campus greenhouse gas emissions, eco-houses, and biodiversity.
Environmental Science Cases Created by LifeLines Workshop Participants (Title altered)
This site contains a list of Ecology/Environmental Science projects, or case modules, created by Lifelines OnLine workshops (LLOL) participants. These cases are grouped by topic. Most cases are still undergoing field testing and may be updated. The user can link to each case on the list.
Environmental Frontlines Issue Summary: mining on public lands
This case study provided by the Environmental Frontline organization is a summary of the 1872 general mining law reform. It includes background information, facts and figures, 'quotable quotables', and recent actions, as well as links to websites of key players, information sources, and relevant reports. Environmental Frontlines organization monitors current environmental issues and the groups involved with such issues. The Mining on Public Lands case study is part of that monitoring program.
