7.349 Biological Computing: At the Crossroads of Engineering and Science (MIT)
Imagine you are a salesman needing to visit 100 cities connected by a set of roads. Can you do it while stopping in each city only once? Even a supercomputer working at 1 trillion operations per second would take longer than the age of the universe to find a solution when considering each possibility in turn. In 1994, Leonard Adleman published a paper in which he described a solution, using the tools of molecular biology, for a smaller 7-city example of this problem. His paper generated enormous

34 Simple Machines Demonstrate a Transfer of Energy
Imagine the most complicated process you could go through to simply pour a glass of milk. Then multiply that by 10. The image in your mind is probably approaching the level of complexity the ZOOM cast members achieved with their milk-pouring machine. Watch as they demonstrate all 34 steps in this video segment adapted from ZOOM. This would be a great addition to a lesson on transfer of energy or types of potential energy. There are several examples of gravitational energy as well as elasti
The Industrial Revolution: The Steam Engine
