ALPS Competency in Practice Assessment (CIPA) Tool
One of the key aims of ALPS is to improve the assessment of competence in practice across 16 professions, increasing the confidence of new graduates and their employers. The CIPA tool has been developed to establish measures of new graduate confidence in their ability across a number of areas of professional competence. Initially it is being piloted as a self-rating tool with new graduates with the intention of extending its use by employers of new graduates. The tool offers a way of establishin
Fear and Trembling - Preamble from Heart III - Existentialism in Literature and Film
Phil 7: Existentialism in Literature and Film - Spring 2006. The course will be organized around various attempts to reinterpret the Judeo/Christian God, and to determine in what sense, if at all, such a God is still a living God. We will study Dostoyevsky's and Kierkegaard's attempts to preserve a non-theological version of the God of Christianity, as well as Nietzche's attempt to save us from belief in any version of God offered by our tradition. We will view and discuss three films that deal
Some birds, especially owls, produce pellets as waste. These pellets usually contain undigested fur and bones from whatever animal the owl has eaten. You can pick through these pellets to discover what owls eat.
Bend, Twist and Break: Beyond the Laboratory
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that when scientists study fracture surfaces from controlled experiments to understand the resulting shapes and features, they can use their understanding to deduce what happened when they were not around to see the material fail or break. Further they can predict what will have to a larger or smaller piece of material under stress. This process is how scientists and engineers translate a lab experiment into a design for an airplane, bridge or even a bike frame.
Imagine It's the Year 2020: Thinking About Genetics Now
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take a look at some of the questions that go hand-in-hand with genetic cloning technologies. The site opens by telling kids that in the future, technologies like cloning may be very common and that some of the decisions we will need to make in coming years are hard. Then, they are asked to imagine that it is the year 2020 and to take a peek at what's on the minds of one futu
The Mixed-Up Microbe Mystery
This activity from our family magazine series challenges kids to help solve the Case of the Dragon That Caused Diarrhea. The online activity begins with an overview of "The Facts" behind this challenge given to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with suggestions for "How to Solve a Microbe Mystery."Before starting the online challenge, kids are taken to a page that explains their "mission" and how to play. A series of six tabs contains details about Cindy's steps towards solvi
See the Light
This set of OLogy activities provides insight into light and how we see it moving every day. Along with an engaging overview of light, it has three separate activities: Reflection, in which students use a flashlight and a mirror in a darkened room to see firsthand how light can reflect in different ways. Refraction, in which students see how light actually slows down and changes direction as it moves through transparent materials like glass and water. The Color of Light, in which students see fi
Parts of a Flower
This illustrated guide is designed to help students recognize and learn the different parts of a flower. The single Web page, which can be easily printed for use at field sites, identifies these parts: plant stigma style ovary stamen anther filament petal ovule with embryo sac sepal receptacle peduncle.

Great Zoom out of Beltsville, MD: Beltsville Agricultural Research Center
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

GPS Receiver Basics
Students familiarize themselves through trial and error with the basics of GPS receiver operation. They view a receiver's satellite visibility screen as they walk in various directions and monitor their progress on the receiver's map. Students may enter waypoints and use the GPS information to guide them back to specific locations.
Students will use two different methods to determine the densities of a variety of materials and objects. The first method involves direct measurement of the volumes of objects that have simple geometric shapes, while the second uses the water displacement method to determine the volumes of irregularly-shaped objects. After the densities are determined, students will create x-y scatter graphs of mass versus volume, and these graphs will reveal that objects with densities less than water (floater
