20.462J Molecular Principles of Biomaterials (MIT)
This course covers the analysis and design at a molecular scale of materials used in contact with biological systems, including biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Topics include molecular interactions between bio- and synthetic molecules and surfaces; design, synthesis, and processing approaches for materials that control cell functions; and application of state-of-the-art materials science to problems in tissue engineering, drug delivery, vaccines, and cell-guiding surfaces.
Professor Brett Wright on the Open Parks Grid (OPG)
Clemson University professor Brett Wright explains the need for an Open Parks Grid...cyber infrastructure designed to connect parks and park managers around the world.
Animation: Static Electricty andWater
This video demonstrates the phenomenon of static induction. A thin thread of flowing water can detect static electricity if a charged object is approached to it. That simple object can be a balloon and it can be charged by rubbing it on a carpet. (01:48)
Revelations Sculpture from the RMIT Collection Panel, feat - Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Lisa Roet, Don
Sculptors Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Lisa Roet, Don Gore and Dan Wollmering are represented in the new RMIT Gallery exhibition Revelations: Sculpture From The RMIT Art Collection. In this panel they join exhibition curator Jon Buckingham to discuss stylistic and formal developments in sculpture and reflect on their own work.
9.12 Experimental Molecular Neurobiology (MIT)
Designed for students without previous experience in techniques of cellular and molecular biology, this class teaches basic experimental techniques in cellular and molecular neurobiology. Experimental approaches covered include tissue culture of neuronal cell lines, dissection and culture of brain cells, DNA manipulation, synaptic protein analysis, immunocytochemistry, and fluorescent microscopy.
Online information retrieval: identification of measures that discriminate among users with differen
The major goal of this research was to discover those behaviors associated with the process of online bibliographic searching that are correlated with success. In the assumption that more experienced searchers are more successful, the major research objectives were to identify (1) the differences among the searches of users of online systems who have different amounts of overall experience and (2) the differences between the searches of persons with and without experience on the data base being
The Hounsfield Lecture - Seeing is Believing: Imaging in Living Subjects
Professor Gambhir describes how the science of molecular imaging is transforming medicine and giving unprecedented insights into how the body works.
5.80 Small-Molecule Spectroscopy and Dynamics (MIT)
The goal of this course is to illustrate the spectroscopy of small molecules in the gas phase: quantum mechanical effective Hamiltonian models for rotational, vibrational, and electronic structure; transition selection rules and relative intensities; diagnostic patterns and experimental methods for the assignment of non-textbook spectra; breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation (spectroscopic perturbations); the stationary phase approximation; nondegenerate and quasidegenerate perturbatio

Take a night swim with Tim and Moby in this BrainPOP movie as they
discover how the Moon controls tides on Earth and how tides provide us with energy! The link also includes a quiz. (approximately 2:00)
The Industrial Revolution: The Steam Engine
By the late 1700s, the coal powered steam engine was widely used in English factories. Its operation, based on valve-piston action, was a great advancement for its time, further increasing industrial productivity. This video does a good job of showing how the steam engine works and its importance in the Industrial Revolution. Best used as part of a study on technology and/or with a drawing of a steam engine as the video is short.

Mystery Bag: Developing Oral Language Skills
This video explains a version of "show and tell" that can be used by elementary teachers in their classrooms to help students develop oral language skills when they share clues about an object brought from home. This helps students gain confidence as well as develop their verbal communication skills. (02:01)
20.440 Analysis of Biological Networks (BE.440) (MIT)
This class analyzes complex biological processes from the molecular, cellular, extracellular, and organ levels of hierarchy. Emphasis is placed on the basic biochemical and biophysical principles that govern these processes. Examples of processes to be studied include chemotaxis, the fixation of nitrogen into organic biological molecules, growth factor and hormone mediated signaling cascades, and signaling cascades leading to cell death in response to DNA damage. In each case, the availability o
