Motion Commotion
Students learn why and how motion occurs and what governs changes in motion, as described by Newton's three laws of motion. They gain hands-on experience with the concepts of forces, changes in motion, and action and reaction. In an associated literacy activity, students design a behavioral survey and learn basic protocol for primary research, survey design and report writing.

May the Force Be With You: Thrust
In this lesson, students will study how propellers and jet turbines generate thrust. This lesson focuses on Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Angiogenesis and Metastasis in Cancer
The resource below is a series of Powerpoint slides (and a list of further reading) on the cellular and molecular basis of angiogenesis and metastasis in cancer. It gives a short overview of the basic organisation of blood vessels and how tuours agrow and spread by stimulating new blood vessel growth and metastic transformation, highlighting the signalling pathways involved in these processes. These slides were created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi as part of her course to first and second year undergrad

Injection-moulded polystyrene ruler
The colours in the image are the result of birefringence and relate to the residual strain in the polystyrene. The pattern of strain is indicative of the flow of material during the injection process and it highlights the injection point (known as a 'gate') at the end of the ruler; the molecular alignment is greatest near this point. Towards the edges of the ruler and along its length, the material becomes more relaxed and as the molecular alignment falls, the retardation of light is less. If he

Fracture surface in a liquid crystalline polymer
Above their melting point, liquid crystalline polymers exhibit a mesophase within which, although able to flow and are not arranged in a crystal, they exhibit long range orientational order. This molecular alignment can be exploited to make high strength and stiffness fibres such as Kevlar, or even mouldable thermotropics such as Vectra. Molecular alignment can also be controlled by an external applied field; a property exploited in liquid crystal displays. This specimen has not had a magnetic f

11.947 Urbanization and Development (MIT)
The course examines the causes and effects of rapid urbanization in developing countries. Using case studies from the world's four major developing regions, including (among others) Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Managua, Singapore, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Kabul, Beirut, Cairo, Kinshasa, Cape Town and Johannesburg, it explores the economic and political dynamics that grease the wheels of contemporary patterns of growth. In addition to examining both local and transnational forces that drive contempora
