Can You Hear it?
In the previous lesson, students learned about the issue of by-catching by fisheries and how it affects marine habitats. Dolphins are one of the main species affected by by-catching While dolphins can use echolocation to identify the location of many objects, they have difficulty identifying nets, and thus can be caught in them by accident. Students will learn how echolocation works, why certain animals use it to determine the size, shape, and distance of objects, and how humans can potentially
In this activity, students create a web to identify and demonstrate the interactions among the living and non-living parts of an environment. This information allows students to better understand what an environment is and to also consider how engineers use teamwork to solve problems.

" This course covers the fundamentals of astrodynamics, focusing on the two-body orbital initial-value and boundary-value problems with applications to space vehicle navigation and guidance for lunar and planetary missions, including both powered flight and midcourse maneuvers. Other topics include celestial mechanics, Kepler's problem, Lambert's problem, orbit determination, multi-body methods, mission planning, and recursive algorithms for space navigation. Selected applications from the Apoll
"The Engineer of 2020, Fall 2009"
" Numerous recent studies have shown that the U.S. has relatively low percentages of students who enter science and engineering and a high drop-out rate.
