Six Annotated Datasets Pull Away from a Single Globe
Six globes showing data (biosphere, aerosols, radiant energy, air pollution, temperature, and water vapor) pull away from a single globe, to illustrate the measurements taken by the instruments on Terra
Sid the Science Kid-"I'm Gonna Be a Big Rain Cloud" Song
One little cloud was dreaming out loud and this was her plan. I've got big dreams. I'm gonna make you proud. I'm gonna grow, and grow, and grow and til I am a big rain cloud. Key vocabulary words include water vapor and precipitation. This is a wonderful resource to build background knowledge for our young students and would work well in conjunction with non-fiction texts on types of weather and/or water cycle. (1:34)
Welcome and Opening Remarks, History
It’s Day 95 in MIT’s 150 days of sesquicentennial celebration, and all thoughts turn to the evolution of computer science and MIT’s pivotal role in that history. As Victor Zue puts it so succinctly, “Computers sure have changed.” They are even invading biology, and President Hockfield (who is also a Professor of N
The Financial Crisis, the Recession, and the American Political Economy: A Systemic Perspective
Charles Ferguson shows how useful a varied background in math, political science and business can be, as he dissects the complexities and recent crisis of the U.S. financial system. In a lecture that distills many of the arguments of his recent film, Inside Job, Ferguson conveys dispassionately yet pers
In this activity, students make a model of a lithium atom using gumdrops and toothpicks. Using this model, they investigate the makeup of an atom, including its relative size. Students also practice adding and subtracting electrons from an atom and determining the overall charges on atoms.

Soul Surfer: Normal Is Overrated
After losing her arm in a shark attack, Bethany suffers with the idea of not being normal or desirable. She discusses these feelings with her mother in this movie clip. This video could be used when addressing the following themes: identity, self-esteem, acceptance, and love. ( :38)
Lesson 2 - Rights and Responsibilities in the Declaration and the Constitution
At the end of this lesson, the students will: Identify key democratic ideals in the Declaration of Independence and constitutional rights and responsibilities. Choose and research, using text and web based information, a historical issue relating to civic rights and responsibilities. Identify at least two opposing viewpoints on the chosen historical issue. Correctly document the sources using APA format.
Hubble Space Telescope: Image Deblurring with a Parallel Computer
This is the star system is known as R-Aquarii, this system is comprised of a hot star orbiting a mass losing giant star.
Using an interactive mapping template, students are guided to design an argument for a persuasive essay or debate. After the Persuasion Map is created, it may be printed, emailed or saved.
Great Zoom out from New Orleans, LA: The Louisiana Superdome (masks visible)
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
Modeled Arctic Sea Ice Thickness from 1940 through 2060: View #3
Part of the ongoing research into polar ice trends encompasses evaluation from sophisticated computer models. At the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University, run by NASAs sibling agency, NOAA, researchers modeled a 5,000 year period to see how polar ice might behave over time depending on several different variables. This visualization shows a 120-year slice of that complete model, essentially offering a research window on to experimental processes that require longer time
