Electrons - Sixty Symbols
Most people know what an electron is - or do they? Interesting video on electrons, what they are, how they behave, and what happens to them. Video is of good quality and would be good for high school students. Run time 06:46.
2.672 Project Laboratory (MIT)
This is an engineering laboratory subject for mechanical engineering juniors and seniors. Major emphasis is on interplay between analytical and experimental methods in solution of research and development problems. Communication (written and oral) of results is also a strong component of the course. Groups of two or three students work together on three projects during the term.
5.5 Distinctions about systems practice A tension has existed throughout the history of Western thought around whether to focus on parts or the whole. The practice that springs from this history carries the same tension. This tension has been particularly visible within science and philosophy for a long time and it gives rise to different approaches. Emphasizing the parts has been called mechanistic, reductionist or atomistic. An emphasis on the whole has been called holistic, organismic or ecological. As Fritjof Capra (1996)

Fashioning Personae: Collage, Gender, and Feminism
Collage has been used throughout history to enable feminist reappraisals and critiques of artistic traditions, and to expose the hidden history of feminist production. Contemporary use of collage ranges from the purely material to artistic strategies for creative self-fashioning, for inhabiting and assembling new personae and identities. This panel invites three members of the contemporary vanguard—Colette, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and K8 Hardy—to consider collage's impact on gender theory
Perioperative Patient Care Video Lectures
Video lecture series on the perioperative care of patients. These video lectures are aimed at medical and nursing students and young professionals tasked with the care of patients before, during and after surgery.It aims to augment the study material and lectures from your home institution and provide you with an additional study resource.

11.167 Economic Development & Technical Capabilities (MIT)
The economic growth of developing countries requires the acquisition of technological capabilities. In countries at the world technological frontier, such capabilities refer to cutting edge skills to innovate entirely new products. In developing countries, the requisite technological capabilities are broader, and include production engineering, project execution and incremental innovation to make borrowed technology work. Theories of technology acquisition are examined. The empirical evidence is
Grammar Representations to Facilitate Style Innovation - An Example From Mobile Phone Design
Previous research in generative design has suggested that shape grammar transformations could be used for developing new design styles by the systematic modification of grammars that encode existing styles. Our research explores how such grammar transformations can be facilitated to be responsive to changes in design style requirements. For this it is important to consider the structure and organization of rules, as well as the description of the styles of designs generated by a grammar. Using a

1.133 Masters of Engineering Concepts of Engineering Practice (MIT)
This course is a core requirement for the Masters in Engineering program, designed to teach students about the roles of today's professional engineer and expose them to team-building skills through lectures, team workshops, and seminars. Topics include: written and oral communication, job placement skills, trends in the engineering and construction industry, risk analysis and risk management, managing public information, proposal preparation, project evaluation, project management, liability, pr

16.851 Satellite Engineering (MIT)
Satellite Engineering introduces students to subsystem design in engineering spacecraft. The course presents characteristic subsystems, such as power, structure, communication and control, and analyzes the engineering trades necessary to integrate subsystems successfully into a satellite. Discussions of spacecraft operating environment and orbital mechanics help students to understand the functional requirements and key design parameters for satellite systems.
1.364 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering (MIT)
1.364 examines site characterization and geotechnical aspects of the design and construction of foundation systems. Topics include: site investigation (with emphasis on in situ testing), shallow (footings and raftings) and deep (piles and caissons) foundations, excavation support systems, groundwater control, slope stability, soil improvement (compaction, soil reinforcement, etc.), and construction monitoring. This course is a core requirement for the Geotechnical Master of Engineering program a

Economic policy simulator
Beginning with the details of an unnamed country, this interactive exercise lets students combine various economic policies to analyse their future impact (in the following two years) on the main macroeconomic indicators. The results and feedback given to students are expressed numerically and graphically. Students also have access to the results of the combination of policies used throughout the exercise so that they can be compared. Said results can be printed for subsequent discussion.
