How To Make A Digi-Brick
This project examines a non-traditional method of construction generated through a digital design process that leverages digital fabrication techniques related to masonry construction. Where as architects? use of computers first affected shape and structure, it is now additionally affecting material, construction, and craft. This design proposal explores these concepts through the production of a wall using simple configuration and reconfiguration of a repeated module adaptable to differing and

This resource provides content and activities about measuring length. It introduces basic units of measurement, and presents opportunities for learners to estimate, read and convert measurements of length.
Mini project : implementation and evaluation of wireless LANs : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about implementing and evaluating wireless LANs. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc in Computer and Network Technologies (course number 2ELE0072) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This mini-project involves the implementation of an “infrastructure” wireless network, the generation and transmission of packets and the measurement of network performance for TCP transpor
Mini project : implementation and evaluation of wireless local area networks : document transcript
This is Mini Project documentation about implementing and evaluating wireless local area networks (LANs). It is part of the 2009/10 BSc in Computer and Network Technologies (course number 2ELE0072) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. It includes a project specification, project briefs for days 1 and 2 and a preparation session brief. This mini-project involves the implementation of an “infrastructu
Particle technology : hindered systems and thickening
This is a video of the third lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Hindered systems is mainly about sedimentation of concentrated suspensions. The way concentrated dispersions behave is also covered: buoyancy correction and viscosity for Newtonian suspensions. Industrial thickener design is included, based on incompressible settling behaviour. This material is suitable for HND, BSc, BEng, MEng, and MSc leve
Particle technology : fluid flow in porous media
This is a video of the fourth lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Fluid flow in porous media covers the basic streamline and turbulent flow models for pressure drop as a function of flow rate within the media. The Modified Reynolds number determines the degree of turbulence in the fluid. The industrial processes of deep bed (sand) filtration and fluidisation are included. This material is suitable for HND
Chemical Water Quality Measurement For Ecologists
Short video introducing and illustrating the type of field based chemical water quality measurement carried out by ecologists. Phosphate measurement is used as the example. Aimed at students without previous field experience of water quality sampling.

Papers of George Washington
In this section of our site, we have endeavored to provide teachers and students with useful primary and secondary materials to help foster understanding of early America through the life of George Washington. These resources can work on several levels. First, the twelve slides themselves provide a general chronology of the life of George Washington as well as secondary information on the larger historical context. Ideally, this background material reiterates your own class text readings and dis
Explores fluid properties, hydrostatics, fluid dynamics, similitude, energy and momentum principles, closed conduit flow, open channel flow, and flow measurement. Includes laboratory exercises in flow measurement, open channel flow, pipe friction, physical modeling, and data collection.
Columbia Plateau, Columbia River Basalt Group
This website features multiple links to geologic resources relating to the Columbia River Plateau and Columbia River Basalt Group. The types of resources available include background information, special items of interest, maps, graphics, images, and educational outreach for multiple levels of experience.
Tutorial Letter (1 of 2): Workbook
In this module we will introduce you to concepts such as food security, food insecurity, nutrition security, livelihood security, food policies and programmes and the role of stakeholders and facilitators. You will gain the knowledge and skills required to gather information on many different levels, from the macro to the micro level. You will also, in time, become equipped to analyse community and household needs, understand the implications of policies and strategies for communities and househ
Irene Khan on poverty and human rights
Irene Khan, former Secretary General of Amnesty International, argues that economics solutions alone cannot end the problems of poverty. She believes that poverty is first and foremost a problem of human rights, and therefore to tackle global poverty we need to focus on the human rights abuses that keep people poor.
Jonathan Berger on the Social Ethics of Music
Stanford University professor, Jonathan Berger, presents a range of compositions, including his piece called Jiyeh, written in response to an ecological disaster arising from an act of war, in this profoundly moving lecture (and accompanying auditory soundscape) reflecting on the idea of socially responsible music.
This graduate/undergraduate course by Marc Madou taught at the Technical University of Ulsan introduces engineering and science students to BIOMEMS. After a study of the fundamentals of sensing techniques, various types of biosensors are introduced and the biological principles involved are ex How the Body Responds to Excercise 10ths and Decimals How Does Broadcast Radio Work? Lung Recruitment
This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the effect of exercise on the body and defines one measure used to gauge aerobic fitness. VO2 max (maximal volume of oxygen uptake) is a measurement of how well the body gets and consumes the oxygen that muscles need in order to sustain activity. Learn how the entire cardiovascular system benefits from exercise and how the body's response to the demands of physical activity is a survival mechanism. Nice illustration of how the respiratory,circulator
In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad is trying to get to the Mother’s Day Harvest on the Madre Bonita Express train. However, Hacker has ripped out a piece of the train track, and the Cybersquad must use what they know about fractions, measurement and decimals to find a way to repair the track. Run time 03:12.
Broadcast radio jobs can require attending broadcasting
school, but are much easier to attain today due to the low competition
levels in radio news. Learn about how to become a broadcast radio disc jockey from an award-winning journalist in this video. Run time 2:52
This video shows an animal model (rabbit I think) of a lung ventilated at different levels of PEEP (0 cmH2O - 15 cmH2O) and the recruitment and derecuitment that occurs. THe video appears to be shot in a classroom or lab with the profesor briefly explaining what is seen on the screen. Younger students will not understand the PEEP levels, but may certainly enjoy seeing the lungs expand and contract. Run time 01:01.
