Internet Scout Project
This Topic in Depth explores the field of surface chemistry. First, the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry publicizes its members initiatives to "investigate the interaction of surfaces with fluids having molecular densities spanning the range from liquids to ultra-high vacuum" (1). Researchers can find out about upcoming meetings, awards, and membership opportunities. The second website presents Chalmers University of Technology's research activities in

Stressed and Strained
Students are introduced to the concepts of stress and strain with examples that illustrate the characteristics and importance of these forces in our everyday lives. They explore the factors that affect stress, why engineers need to know about it, and the ways engineers describe the strength of materials. In an associated literacy activity, while learning about the stages of group formation, group dynamics and team member roles, students discover how collective action can alleviate personal feeli

Pop Rockets
Students design and build a paper rocket around a film canister, which is used as the engine. An antacid tablet and water are put into the canister, react to form carbon dioxide gas, and act as the pop rocket’s propellant. With the lid snapped on, the continuous creation of gas causes pressure to build up until the lid pops off, sending the rocket into the air. The pop rockets demonstrate Newton’s third law of motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton Rocket Car
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate Newton’s third law of motion — which states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction — through a small wooden car. The Newton cars show how action/reaction works and how the mass of a moving object affects the acceleration and force of the system. Subsequently, the Newton cars provide students with an excellent analogy for how rockets actually work.

Floodplain Modeling
Students explore the impact of changing river volumes and different floodplain terrain in experimental trials with table top-sized riverbed models. The models are made using modeling clay in an aluminum baking pans placed on a slight incline. Water added “upstream” at different flow rates and to different riverbed configurations simulates different potential flood conditions. Students study flood dynamics as they modify the riverbed with blockages or levees to simulate real-world scenarios.

Team Up!
Students explore the physical and psychological effect of stress and tension on human beings. They develop their observing, thinking, writing and teamwork skills by working on a group art project and reporting about it. They learn about the stages of group formation, group dynamics and team member roles that make for effective teams. In the process, they discover how collective action can foster a sense of community support, which can alleviate personal feelings of stress and tension. Note: The

The Tycoon and the Tough: towards a comparative anthropology of urban marginality
Anthropologists often use key figures, such as the street tough, the child witch, and the flaneur, as a means to elucidate, personify, and critique underlying dynamics of social and cultural transformation. It is a method that is widely used, but seldom scrutinised. In this lecture Joshua Barker uses examples from his research in the slums of Bandung, Indonesia, to argue that this method can make a powerful contribution to a comparative anthropology of urban marginality.

The mechanisms of boiling (video)

Boiling is an effective way to remove heat. It is used as cooling medium in many industrial power such as power plants. The mechanisms governing the different regimes occurring during the boiling of a liquid usually are complex and often intertwined. It is important to know them and identify them in the laboratory. In particular, the detailed understanding of the boiling crisis, well known and feared for the damage that can result in practice is of primary importance. (For the boiling of a s

2.1 Introduction

The unique climate and topography of each desert links to the unique and characteristic flora and fauna found there. From the brief description of deserts provided in Section 1, you can appreciate that a desert provides a variety of niches for animals and plants. The term ‘niche’ applied to animals describes its role in a particular environment, and includes a number of characteristics such as habitat range, how the animal feeds, its diet, its environmental requirements and also its preda

I processi di apprendimento nei contesti dello sviluppo e del cambiamento segnati dalla globalizzaz
La qualità dell'apprendimento è il vero segreto del successo di un sistema educativo, e non avrebbe senso fare battaglie globali per mandare tutti in una scuola o in una università dove si insegnano nozioni inutili, con metodologie sorpassate o repressive. Al di là delle ovvie considerazioni sulla dotazione minima di attrezzature didattiche e infrastrutture necessarie affinché una scuola o una università funzioni decentemente, vi sono almeno cinque elementi non materiali che caratteriz
