Ranking the Rocks: Lesson
This lesson develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called "desirability points" to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.

Fish Skull Animation: Jaw Protrusion
This collection of fish-skull animations is from Diversity of Fishes, part of the Museum's Seminars on Science series. These distance-learning courses are designed to help educators meet the new national science standards. The three QuickTime movies take a look at the following aspects of jaw protrusion: how this feeding mechanism allows fish to extend their reach in order to envelope prey; how jaw protrusion increases mouth volume and forces water and prey into the fish's now tube-like jaws; th
Quantifying Uncertainty in Complex Physical Systems: Application to Energy Conversion and Environmen
In search of better-burning fuels, or more accurate projections of climate change, researchers inevitably work through multiple models, sometimes at great cost. Youssef Marzouk hopes to provide energy and environmental scientists constructive and efficient new approaches to modeling complex engineered systems.
