Learn About Triceratops Learn Abou
The name Triceratops means "three horned face". This video gives great facts about the Triceratops. Some of the facts include size (weight and height), eating habits, skull size, frill, predators, fossils, and herding habits. This is a great resource to work in conjunction with non-fiction texts on this subject. Students will enjoy this fun, informative video. (3:09)
2011 CHM Fellow Awards Celebration
[Recorded April 30, 2011] Since 1987, the Computer History Museum Fellow Awards have honored distinguished technology leaders who have forever changed the world with their accomplishments. Chosen on the basis of accomplishment, Fellows are nominated by the Museum's community and selected by a panel composed of Museum staff, historians, industry peers, and other Computer History Museum Fellows. This prestigious award recognizes each Fellow's role in the advancement of computing history, as well

Photonic Dipole Contours of Ferrofluid Hele-Shaw Cell (Two Magnet Pole Video)
This investigation describes and demonstrates a novel technique for the visualization of magnetic fields. Two ferrofluid Hele-Shaw cells have been constructed to facilitate the imaging of magnetic field lines. We deduce that magnetically induced photonic band gap arrays similar to electrostatic liquid crystal operation are responsible for the photographed images and seek to mathematically prove the images are of exact dipole nature. This is the two magnet version with the poles mostly facing the
"We No Longer Control Our Resources": Donna Koons Kingsley Describes the Struggle of Trinidad's Oilf
A slew of international financial crises in the early 1990's, including collapses in Mexico, Southeast Asia, and Russia, highlighted the important influence international lending organizations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank had over economic decisions in the developing world. Often in cooperation with local elites, these bodies have forced countries to respond to debt crises by privatizing public industries and utilities, in many cases selling these public resou
"The Momentum Was Catching On:" Lillian Roberts Describes Organizing Hospital Workers in New York Ci
Municipal workers led a wave of strikes that made the 1960's and early 1970's a highpoint for organized labor militancy in New York City. Teachers, social workers, sanitation workers, and parks employees all fought to improve work conditions, low-paying wage scales, and to reform the city's social services. Lillian Roberts arrived in New York in 1965 to organize low-paid and often disrespected hospital workers for American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). At the tim
Rapid-Cycling Brassicas (RCBs) in Hands-on Teaching of Plant Biology
Wisconsin Fast Plants is a novel technology involving the use of rapid cycling genetic stocks (35 days seed to seed) of Brassica rapa and related species and includes simple, inexpensive, self-contained growing systems suitable for the classroom or laboratory at all levels from kindergarten to college. Participants are introduced to the uses of these plants in teaching: development, reproduction, genetics, physiology, and ecology.

PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Behavior
The baby is sitting comfortably in his mother's lap. He is socially aware, inquisitive and readily responds to visual objects and sounds. He smiles, laughs, and jabbers. At this age a baby will start to make repetitive speech sounds that are nonspecific such as da, ma, or ba. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Developmental Anatomy - Neuronal Growth and Organization
By 36 weeks gestation, the process of neuronal proliferation is nearly complete. Although there is some limited proliferation of neurons throughout life, their contribution to brain growth is negligible. Growth of the individual neurons plus the elaboration and proliferation of dendritic and axonal processes and connections is responsible for most of the brain's growth. The diameter of a neuroblast is 5 microns while a mature neuron can measure 50 microns, a 1,000-fold increase in cell volume. I
The Spotlight - PSYCHED UP... for the NXC!
Features a close look at the first annual Ontario Undergraduate "NeuroXchange Conference" held at McMaster University. Including interviews with some amazing Mac undergraduate "minds" as they discuss their research on the human brain.

Energy Forms, States and Conversions
The students participate in many demonstrations during the first day of this lesson to learn basic concepts related to the forms and states of energy. This knowledge is then applied the second day as they assess various everyday objects to determine what forms of energy are transformed to accomplish the object's intended task. The students use block diagrams to illustrate the form and state of energy flowing into and out of the process.
In this unit, students look at the components of cells and their functions and discover the controversy behind stem cell research. The first lesson focuses on the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. In the second lesson, students learn about the basics of cellular respiration. They also learn about the application of cellular respiration to engineering and bioremediation. The third lesson continues the students' education on cells in the human body and how (and why) engineers ar
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: General Physical Examination
In the neurological assessment of the child don't neglect the general physical examination. Some of the parts of the general examination that are particularly important to note are the following: Somatic growth - measure height and weight and compare percentiles with head circumference; Search for dysmorphic features - carefully study the face especially the midface. There is the old adage that the face reflects the brain because anomalies of the midface are often associated with underlying brai
