The Water Cycle - by StudyJams
The water cycle is the constant movement of water through the Earth and its atmosphere. Water on the ground evaporates, becoming water vapor. The vapor rises, becomes clouds, and then falls back to the Earth as rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Learn more about the water cycle with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Jackie Faherty Discusses Brown Dwarfs and Her PhD with Mike Shara and Adam Burgasser
Last fall, Museum astrophysicist Jacqueline Faherty, who studies brown dwarfs and completed her doctorate under the supervision of Curator Michael Shara, defended her dissertation at Stony Brook Unisersity. On the train ride after her defense, Faherty discussed her work with Shara and advisor Adam J. Burgasser. This month, Faherty was one of five students at Stony Brook University who received the 2011 President's Award for Distinguished Doctoral Students.

The Rock Cycle - by StudyJams
Rock is the hard, solid material, consisting of one or more minerals, that makes up the Earth. Rocks continually change from one type to another through the rock cycle process. There are three types of rocks: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. Learn more about the rock cycle with this cartoon animation from StudyJams.

Great Zoom into Boston, MA: Park Plaza Hotel
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
ࡁn introduction to our solar system: the planets, our Sun and our Moon. Students begin by learning the history and engineering of space travel. They make simple rockets to acquire a basic understanding Newton's third law of motion. They explore energy transfer concepts and use renewable solar energy for cooking. They see how engineers design tools, equipment and spacecraft to go where it is too far and too dangerous for humans. They explore the Earth's water cycle, and gravity as applied to or
Linear function graph display
An interactive applet that allows the user to graphically explore the properties of a linear functions. Specifically, it is designed to foster an intuitive understanding of the effects of changing the two coefficients in the function y=ax+b. The applet shows a large graph of a quadratic (ax + b) and has two slider controls, one each for the coefficients a and b. As the sliders are moved, the graph is redrawn in real time illustrating the effects of these variations. Applet can be enlarged to ful
The Use of the LEGO MINDSTORMS System in Modeling: The Foraging Behavior and Strategies of Simple An
The LEGO MINDSTORMS system provides a rich simulation environment for evolutionary adaptation and animal behavior. It includes both hardware and software that may be considered analogous to anatomical features and behavioral repertoire respectively. The system is off-the-shelf which minimizes set-up and preparation time. Conversely, its components are capable of considerable customization and expansion if desired. The MINDSTORMS system makes clear that form, function, and behavior of animals are

Rube Goldberg and the Meaning of Machines
Simple and compound machines are designed to make work easier. When we encounter a machine that does not fit this understanding, the so-called machine seems absurd. In this lesson, the cartoons of Rube Goldberg are introduced and engage the students in critical thinking about the way his inventions make a simple task even harder to complete. As the final lesson in the simple machines unit, the study of Rube Goldberg machines can help students evaluate the importance and usefulness of the many ma
What Do Bread and Beer Have in Common?
Students are presented with information that will allow them to recognize that yeasts are unicellular organisms that are useful to humans. In fact, their usefulness is derived from the contrast between the way yeast cells and human cells respire. Specifically, while animal cells derive energy from the combination of oxygen and glucose and produce water and carbon dioxide as by-products, yeasts respire without oxygen. Instead, yeasts break glucose down and produce alcohol and carbon dioxide as th
Lake Effects of Lake Michigan, faster push-in
Todays SeaWiFS image of Lake Michigan shows a lake effect where clear dry air moves eastward as it traverses the lake and forming dense clouds by the time it reaches the Michigan shore.
At the end of this unit you can explain a project on sorting waste for offices.
