"Cold War Science, Fall 2008"
" This seminar examines the history and legacy of the Cold War on American science. It explores scientist's new political roles after World War II, ranging from elite policy makers in the nuclear age to victims of domestic anti Communism. It also examines the changing institutions in which the physical sciences and social sciences were conducted during the postwar decades, investigating possible epistemic effects on forms of knowledge. The subject closes by considering the place of science in th

Rocket Me into Space
One of the exciting challenges for engineers is the idea of exploration. This lesson looks more closely at Spaceman Rohan, Spacewoman Tess, their daughter Maya, and their challenges with getting to space, setting up satellites, and exploring uncharted waters via a canoe. This lesson reinforces rockets as a vehicle that helps us explore outside the Earth's atmosphere (i.e., to move without air) by using the principles of Newton's third law of motion. Also, the ideas of thrust, control and weight

A Visit to Peek Frean and Co.'s Biscuit Works (1906) - extract
Without Peek Frean & Co. we would never have had the Garibaldi, the Bourbon or the Twiglet. The Clements Road factory gave Bermondsey the pet name 'Biscuit Town' until its closure in 1989. This extract is from a film by Cricks & Sharp, commissioned by the company to mark its 50th anniversary, and is now considered one of the earliest British documentaries. All titles on the BFI Films channel are preserved in the vast collections of the BFI National Archive. To find out more about the Archive vi
