ESD.00 Introduction to Engineering Systems (MIT)
Students in ESD.00 work on projects to address large, complex and seemingly intractable real-world problems, such as energy supply, environmental issues, health care delivery, and critical infrastructure (e.g., telecommunications, water supply, and transportation). The course introduces interdisciplinary approaches - rooted in engineering, management, and the social sciences - to considering these critical contemporary issues. Small, faculty-led teams select an engineering systems term project t

4.4 Closure of an ocean Some of the oldest rocks in the British Isles are over 2500 million years old, whereas elsewhere on the Earth rocks as old as 3800 million years have been found within the continents. These ages contrast with that of the world's oldest in situ oceanic crust (excluding obducted ophiolites), which is only 200 million years. Considering that basins must have been opening and closing for approximately the same amount of time as continental crust has been forming, this implies that a

Egyptian Sarcophagus Paper-Craft
This video shows the assembly of a paper-crafted Egyptian sarcophagus.
( This set shows a set of three nesting boxes.) Teachers could show this to students studying Egyptian history before having them design their own sarcophaguses. ( 4:17)
It’s not magic, kiddo. It’s science! Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a colorless, odorless gas that is more dense than air at 6.12 g/L (at sea level). This density is why you can pour it into a glass container and float a light-weight aluminum “boat” on its gas “sea.” Watch this demonstration at the Physikshow of the University of Bonn! (0:30)
What in the World is a Tapir?
This is one confusing animal. It's often called a "mountain cow" but is actually related to the rhinoceros. It has a flexible nose like an elephant. (It has fourteen toes!)
This classroom of students made commercials using different tools of persuasion. A teacher could show the video pausing after each commercial to discuss whether the students were using stereotyping, repetition, endorsement, association, etc. (14:57)

Pair of Fiji Crested Iguana Fighting
This very short video gives excellent real life footage of a pair of Fiji Crested Iguana fighting. The Fiji crested iguana is a large stocky lizard, which was first discovered in 1979. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 2 Minutes)
