Full-Scale Simulations as Tool for Developing Spatial Design Ability
Spatial Design Ability has been defined as the capability to anticipate effects (psychological impressions on potential observers or users) produced by mental manipulation of elements of architectural or urban spaces. This ability, of great importance in choosing the appropriate option during the design process, is not specifically developed in schools of architecture and is partially obtained as a by-product of drawing, designing or architectural criticism. We use our Laboratory as a tool to pr

No part of Ireland completely escaped the impact of the glaciers of the Ice Age. The glaciers transformed the contours of the island and left behind a landscape of craggy mountains, steep gorges, and vast networks of inland waterways. In this video segment from Nature, viewers learn about this part of Ireland's geological past. (01:13)
Antarctic Ice Movement
With more than 29 million cubic kilometers (7 million cubic miles) of ice and snow, the Antarctic Ice Sheet is so massive that its weight depresses the underlying crust by 900 meters (nearly 3,000 feet). New snow that collects on the ice sheet's surface causes the ice beneath it to spread out and move along the slope of the land. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, a team of glaciologists carves into one glacier on the East Sheet to monitor the nature and speed of its movement. Closed capti
Forming the Burren in Ireland
The weight and movement of glaciers of the Ice Age has shaped about one-third of the Earth's landmass. Glacial movement formed rolling hills, carved out valleys and created a rich variety of landforms. The Burren in Ireland is one of the finest examples of landscape shaped by glaciation. Learn more about the Burren in this brief video segment from Nature. Run time 0:40.

Inference Song This inference song is sung by a teacher and his class of students. Song explains what it means to infer when reading. Words are given on the bottom of the screen, so kids can sing along. Good song, it explains what inferences are and how students find them or infer them. One odd feature of the video is that a Spiderman costumed character dances in the lower right corner throughout the whole song. (2:1
