Ancient DNA - bringing the past to life (short version)
Taking archeology a step beyond traditional pottery shards, Brian Kemp analyzes ancient DNA (aDNA) from bones, teeth, and desiccated feces (coprolites) to help bring prehistoric Native American cultures alive in ways never before possible. As a molecular anthropologist, Kemp compares archeological findings with genetic information to detect past demographic shifts, population interactions, and movements throughout the Americas. By plotting aDNA together with artifacts in the ground, specific tr

Junior Chemistry: The Periodic Table 1
This eight minute video provides an overview of the Periodic Table. It uses a narrator who speaks rapidly and does not show any experiments. The start of the video is uneven in quality. It is best if the students have a copy of the Table before showing the video.

Wild Animal Veterinarian
Most veterinarians take care of our common pets and livestock: dogs,
cats, horses, cows, the occasional sick hamster. Mark Pokras' patient
list is more unusual--today he could be treating a fox and an owl,
tomorrow it might be a turtle and a deer. See how math and science are fundamental no matter what species of animal you're treating. This motivating video shows the importance and activities related to this profession.

Seven Spot Ladybird Walking Along Vegetation (Ladybugs)
This short video gives excellent real life footage of a Seven Spot Ladybird (Ladybug) walking along vegetation. Students will enjoy the close up views of this amazing insect as it interacts in its natural environment. Ladybirds are perhaps the most well-known and popular of all beetles. This rounded beetle has bright red wing cases with 7 black spots, although some individuals may have more or fewer spots. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real wor
How to Take a Multiple-Choice Test
To get higher marks on multiple-choice tests, follow these simple guidelines, according to the narrator of this 3:10 video. Lots of good ideas that should be reviewed by the students to gain the most from these answers.
Scaling relations from scale model experiments on equilibrium accretionary beach profiles
Movable bed, scale model experiments were conducted at three length scales, 1/8.5, 1/10 and 1/11, in a 90 ft-long wave tank to study scale effect and equilibrium profile characteristics under sinusoidal, accreting wave action. Geometric similarity, deep water wave steepness, wave Froude number, densimetric Froude number, and particle Reynolds number were preserved by selecting the same sediment and fluid in the model and prototype. Wave height was measured with parallel-wire resistance gauges wh
