In cities and other developed areas, much of it runs off rapidly, down into catch basins and storm drains, where it races through pipes and discharges into our rivers. I
Electrical and computer engineers designed a system based on magnets that
enables disabled persons to use the tongue to control the movement of a
wheelchair. Movement of the magnetic tracer attached to the tongue is detected
by an array of magnetic field sensors mounted on a headset outside the mouth. This is a motivating video for students to show that technology can be used to help people in a variety of ways. It can also be used as a problem solving lesson.
'Nearly 60 years ago, audiences thrilled to the destruction of the Earth in George Pal's classic film, "When Worlds Collide." The idea of a planetary smash-up is a staple of science fiction, but can it really happen? Astronomers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope think they've actually seen the aftermath of such a collision around another star. It can even help us understand similar calamities that happened long ago in our own solar system.' (05:31)
The voluntary or skeletal muscle system consists of more than 650 muscles, which produce body movement and help maintain an upright posture.

This video explains the WTO through member governments' eyes. It
seeks to shed light on how the WTO system works, through the experience
and motivations of two very different countries: Brazil, a large
developing nation, and Norway, a small but economically advanced state. A professional video of good quality.
This one-minute animated Spanish video offers information to younger learners about the planets in our Solar System.
The nature of acceleration is determined by the net external force for constant mass system. Depending on the nature of force, there exists wide range of possibilities like zero, constant or varying accelerations in one dimensional motion.

This is a student-created video about the digestive system. (Musical selections could have been better.)
This paper is about the design and realization of an experimentation with a hypermedial system, IPER-3, facing the three ‘classical’ problems in the history of mathematics (trisection of the angle, quadrature of the circle, duplication of the cube) and some issues which have developed around them. The aim of the work is to study the opportunities provided by hypermedial systems in dealing with topics of interest for the training of teachers and/or for class work, exploiting the possibility o
'History of the internet' is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from time-sharing to filesharing, from Arpanet to Internet. The clip shows a brief overview of this history and shall animate people to go on discovering the history of the internet.
The history is told with help of the PICOL icons - PICOL standing for PIctorial COmmunication Language and is a project to find a standard and reduced sign system for electronic communication.
