What is "Computer Science" ?
Hal Abelson gives an introduction to the "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" lecture with an explanation of Declarative and Imperative programming.
Excerpted and adapted from Hal Abelson, "Introductory Undergraduate Subjects in Computer Science":-
6.001 differs from typical introductory computer science subjects in using Scheme (a block-structured dialect of Lisp) rather than Pascal as its programming vehicle. The subject's developers feel strongly that Pascal

Primitive Insects of the Congaree Swamp
In this video segment from NatureScene, observe dragonflies and mayflies near Cedar Creek at Congaree Swamp National Park.
9.2 Antisocial behaviour disease
How do we become individuals? This unit looks at how genes and the environment interact making each of us unique. Looking at the period between conception and birth you will examine the issues of nature or nurture to see which has the greatest impact.
Fields reports on Shirley Caesar's visit to Memorial Church on the Harvard University campus. Fields notes that Caesar is an evangelist and a Grammy award-winning singer. Fields adds that Caesar has recently entered local politics in Durham, North Carolina. Fields interviews Caesar. Caesar talks about her music and her outreach ministry. She also discusses her recent entry into politics. Caesar says that she sees herself as a humanitarian. Fields' report includes footage of Caesar performing wit
Early Contributions of African-Americans to International Relations: Tiffany John-Lewis
Tiffany John Lewis is a History major at the University of Pennsylvania and has studied the untold contributions of distinguished African Americans through support from the Penn Undergraduate Research Mentoring program (PURM) and a grant from the University's Benjamin Franklin Society. She also worked with Penn's Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships.
In this lesson, students are introduced to communications engineers as people who enable long-range communication. In the lesson demonstration, students discuss the tendency of sound to diminish with distance and model this phenomenon using a slinky. Finally, Alexander Graham Bell is introduced as the inventor of the telephone and a pioneer in communications engineering.
Sticks and Stones Will Break That Bone!
Students learn about the strength of bones and methods of helping to mend fractured bones. During a class demonstration, a chicken bone is broken by applying a load until it reaches a point of failure (fracture). Then, working as biomedical engineers, students teams design their own splint or cast to help repair a fractured bone, learning about the strength of materials used.
How Tall Are We?
Kindergartners measure each other's height using large building blocks, then visit a 2nd and a 4th grade class to measure those students. They can also measure adults in the school community. Results are displayed in age-appropriate bar graphs (paper cut-outs of miniature building blocks glued on paper to form a bar graph) comparing the different age groups. The activities that comprise this lesson help students develop the concepts and vocabulary to describe, in a non-ambiguous way, how height
Cognitive Disability and Cognitive Enhancement
Prof Jeff McMahan,Rutgers University explores why it is important for our understanding of problems in bioethics to determine the moral status of human beings whose cognitive capacities and potential are no higher than those of higher nonhuman animals.

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.
4.3 The easy problems and the hard problem
What is consciousness? How does the brain generate consciousness and how can a science of the mind describe and explain it adequately? This unit will introduce you to the slippery phenomenon that is consciousness, as well as some of the difficulties consciousness presents to science and philosophy.
"We No Longer Control Our Resources": Donna Koons Kingsley Describes the Struggle of Trinidad's Oilf
A slew of international financial crises in the early 1990's, including collapses in Mexico, Southeast Asia, and Russia, highlighted the important influence international lending organizations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank had over economic decisions in the developing world. Often in cooperation with local elites, these bodies have forced countries to respond to debt crises by privatizing public industries and utilities, in many cases selling these public resou
"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
