"Introduction to Stagecraft, Spring 2009"
" Offered in the spring and fall terms, Introduction to Stagecraft is a hands-on course that gets students working with the tools and techniques of theatrical production in a practical way. It is not a design course but one devoted to artisanship. Among the many remarkable final projects that have been proposed and presented at the end of the course have been a Renaissance hourglass blown in the MIT glass shop and set into a frame turned on our set shop lathe; a four harness loom built by a stud

Panel 4: Economic Impacts of HSR: Lessons for California
Other countries have decades of experience living with HSR and observing how it has influenced their urban economies. While HSR has broad, and often difficult to quantify, economic impacts, experiences from the Europe and Japan suggest that HSR can increase productivity and competitiveness by reducing the "time/space relationship" between cities. This panel will explore the economic impacts of HSR projects abroad and offer timely lessons for California to maximize the economic benefits of HSR fo

Catching Solar Waves
Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities occur when two fluids of different densities or different speeds flow by each other. In the case of ocean waves, that's the dense water and the lighter air. As they flow past each other, slight ripples can be quickly amplified into the giant waves loved by surfers. In the case of the solar atmosphere, which is made of a very hot and electrically charged gas called plasma, the two flows come from an expanse of plasma erupting off the sun's surface as it passes by pl
Learn About a More Complicated Friction/Inclined Plane Problem
Khan Academy Presents: Fun with two masses, some wire, a pulley, and a ramp with friction. (10:15) Sal Khan uses computer software and different colors for demonstration.
Plate tectonics is an earth sciences topic that attracts a good deal of interest, given that it a topic very often featured in popular science programmes on TV and radio. It is a subject that have strong visual appeal. The coverage is S279 is self-contained, up to date and is written in a way that will be accessible to those with interest and motivation, all the more so for those who have some pre-existing scientific understanding.
"The Momentum Was Catching On:" Lillian Roberts Describes Organizing Hospital Workers in New York Ci
Municipal workers led a wave of strikes that made the 1960's and early 1970's a highpoint for organized labor militancy in New York City. Teachers, social workers, sanitation workers, and parks employees all fought to improve work conditions, low-paying wage scales, and to reform the city's social services. Lillian Roberts arrived in New York in 1965 to organize low-paid and often disrespected hospital workers for American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). At the tim
Chlorine Nitrate over the Arctic from CLAES (2-12-93 - 3-16-93)
Key to understanding the chlorine chemistry in the polar stratosphere is the measurement of polar stratospheric clouds, chlorine monoxide, and the reservoir gas chlorine nitrate. Chlorine nitrate has been measured by the Cryogen Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer, CLAES. CLAES makes measurements by looking at infrared emission from cloud particles and trace gases. CLAES measurements help to show that the polar stratospheric clouds which form in the cold Arctic stratosphere have converted most of the

Energy Forms, States and Conversions
The students participate in many demonstrations during the first day of this lesson to learn basic concepts related to the forms and states of energy. This knowledge is then applied the second day as they assess various everyday objects to determine what forms of energy are transformed to accomplish the object's intended task. The students use block diagrams to illustrate the form and state of energy flowing into and out of the process.
In this unit, students look at the components of cells and their functions and discover the controversy behind stem cell research. The first lesson focuses on the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. In the second lesson, students learn about the basics of cellular respiration. They also learn about the application of cellular respiration to engineering and bioremediation. The third lesson continues the students' education on cells in the human body and how (and why) engineers ar
