Donkeys have been called the world¹s most important work animals, but it¹s unusual for pre-veterinary students to get hands-on experience with them. The UMass Amherst International Donkey Project is one of the only programs in the nation where undergraduate veterinary and animal science students can learn about donkey health and care, and conduct original reproductive research in a modern clinical facility. Students started the UMass Donkey Club to spend more time with donkeys and enhance thei
Dr. Jean has released a new song and video on youtube for teachers and parents to enjoy. You learn on your feet, not on your seat! When children move, dance, and wiggle, more senses are activated and the message is more likely to get to the brain. This is a great resource for the early childhood classroom. (3:30)
This is a short, student-made video about children's author, Cynthia Rylant. The video gives a small amount of personal information, some of her titles, and photos of her. (01:53)

Most archaeological evidence of early human occupation of the Americas is found in the interior of the continent. However, in recent years archaeologists have been exploring the hypothesis that the first American settlers who entered via the Bering land bridge in Alaska hugged the west coast on their migration to South America. Two coastal dig sites have recently yielded artifacts that resemble those of East Asia. Whether these sites are remains of a coastal migration from East Asia to South Ame

Spring Quarter 2012, Lecture 16 for Chem 51C: Organic Chemistry recorded on Tuesday, May 29. Items covered: introduction to carbohydrates - structure and stereochemistry.
This lesson introduces students to the idea of biomimicry or looking to nature for engineering ideas. Biomimicry involves solving human problems by mimicking natural solutions, and it works well because the solutions exist naturally. There are numerous examples of useful applications of biomimicry, and in this lesson we look at a few fun examples.
