Moments (Part 1) - Khan Academy
This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. (14:14)
6.012 Microelectronic Devices and Circuits (MIT)
6.012 is the header course for the department's "Devices, Circuits and Systems" concentration. The topics covered include: modeling of microelectronic devices, basic microelectronic circuit analysis and design, physical electronics of semiconductor junction and MOS devices, relation of electrical behavior to internal physical processes, development of circuit models, and understanding the uses and limitations of various models. The course uses incremental and large-signal techniques to
Ubiquitous Training of Visual-Spatial Skills: On the Development of Mobile Applications Using Handhe
This research project seeks to develop m-learning applications that provide training in visual-spatial skills using wireless handheld mobile devices (e.g. PDAs and cellular phones). The paper acknowledges the role of visual-spatial competence as fundamental in science and most creative endeavors, including its critical role in architectural design. It also recognizes that there is a substantial amount of anecdotal evidence suggesting that undergraduate students in architecture have serious limit

Visualisation for Clients - One Example of Educating CAAD for Practice
During the spring term 1996, 13 students of the 3rd and 4th year at the School of Architecture at Lund University had the opportunity to make a one semester CAAD project. 11 students chose the individual exercise to use computer media for developing a small architectural design in interaction with a client. The focus was set more on visualization and the process of communicating ideas, feelings and practical solutions between architect and client and visa versa rather than concentrated on the fi
16.00 Introduction to Aerospace Engineering and Design (MIT)
The fundamental concepts, and approaches of aerospace engineering, are highlighted through lectures on aeronautics, astronautics, and design. Active learning aerospace modules make use of information technology. Student teams are immersed in a hands-on, lighter-than-air (LTA) vehicle design project, where they design, build, and fly radio-controlled LTA vehicles. The connections between theory and practice are realized in the design exercises. Required design reviews precede the LTA race competi

22.39 Integration of Reactor Design, Operations, and Safety (MIT)
This course integrates studies of engineering sciences, reactor physics and safety assessment into nuclear power plant design. Topics include materials issues in plant design and operations, aspects of thermal design, fuel depletion and fission-product poisoning, and temperature effects on reactivity, safety considerations in regulations and operations, such as the evolution of the regulatory process, the concept of defense in depth, General Design Criteria, accident analysis, probabilistic risk
This artefact outlines the creation of a new website for Innovation North students holding details of all work placements (short, long term, voluntary, paid).The Institute for Enterprise funded the project and the money helped pay a student to maintain the website for a year
This video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW explains how geophysicist Klaus Lackner and two engineers, Allen and Burton Wright, teamed up to develop a technology to capture an important greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), in the air. Modeling their design after a tree—and one of Lackner's daughter's science experiments—the team tested different materials, configurations, and coatings that together would act as leaves do to remove CO2 from the air. However, instea
How the Sun Works
Join award winning teacher Jonathan Bergmann as he interactively teaches Astronomy: How the Sun Works. The focus of this lesson is the balance between the sun's internal forces, a hydrostatic equilibrium between a force that prevents the sun from collapsing and a force that holds it together. ( 6:57)
Clownfish in sea anemone
The sea anemone allows the clownfish to hide in its tentacles. Sea anemones normally sting organisms that get too close. This is a commensalistic relationship because the clownfish benefits while the anemone is neither harmed nor helped.
