Innovation in the Classroom
Undergraduate students of all concentrations share the excitement of hands-on learning at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Students, professors, and investors emphasize the importance of an academic foundation in technology, creativity, and innovation and the benefits of studying engineering and applied sciences in a liberal arts environment.
Using Dermatoglyphics from Down Syndrome and Class Populations to Study the Genetics of a complex tr
Dermatoglyphics is the study of epidermal ridges on the hands and feet. Ridge patterns and counts develop prenatally, are inherited, and show quantitative variation. This exercise introduces the preparation and interpretation of finger and palm prints for quantitative analysis. The techniques are simple, inexpensive, and can be adapted as an exercise on genetics for beginning or advanced students. Palm prints from individuals with Down Syndrome serve as a population sample to statistically test

Hurricane Erin from SeaWiFS: September 10, 2001 (Version 2)
Hurricane Erin off the eastern coast of America
If a country's Gross Domestic Product increases each year, but so does the percentage of its people deprived of basic education, health care, and other opportunities, is that country really making progress? If we rely on conventional economic indicators, can we ever grasp how the world's billions of individuals are really managing? In this video and in her new book, CREATING CAPABILITIES, Martha Nussbaum argues that our dominant theories of development have given us policies that ignore our mos

Bottles Up: An Ode to Medication Container Safety
This video explores three different problems with medication container safety by following the life of Ling Ling. First, child Ling Ling gets into a medication bottle, then as an adult, she takes the wrong medication and experiences an adverse reaction. Lastly, as a senior, Ling Ling is unable to read the label on the medication bottle. Three solutions to these problems are presented: child safety caps, color-coded rings and easier to read labels with flat-sided bottles. These solutions are pres
Annual North America Surface Temperature Anomaly: 1950 through 1998
Global surface temperatures in 1998 set a new record for the period of instrumental measurements, report researchers at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies who analyze data collected from several thousand meteorological stations around the world. This visualization shows surface temperature anomalies from 1950 through November, 1998. The 1998 warmth was associated partly with a strong El Nino that warmed the air over the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean in the first half of the year and i
Safe Hydrogel Padding: use in safe clothing
Polymer effect (Hydrogel particles inside PU melt matrix): The polymer coating will absorb and bind the excess of moisture migrating through the FR cotton fabric if the temperature is maintained below the threshold. In case temperature increases, the coating will release the sweat accumulated, reproducing the human natural sweating process through evaporativecooling.

276 GG Is Saying "Graduated College" Wrong?
Should you say you "graduated from college," "graduated college," or "were graduated from college"?
Record test results - Maintain Laboratory Records
An introduction to microbiological laboratory procedures for lab technicians in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers procedures for recording results.
Toxic Release Inventory Explorer
The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) Explorer provides access to the Toxics Release Inventory data to help communities identify facilities, chemical disposal, or other release patterns that warrant further study and analysis. Users can create maps or reports with the TRI Explorer tool. Users can create maps or reports with the TRI Explorer tool.

Il servizio meteo: understanding the weather bulletin
At the end of this lesson you will be able to read and understand a simple weather report from the newspaper or on the web. After reading a list of words you can examine the maps and specify which region a sentence relates to. You can then match the picture to the word. Finally you read a weather bulletin and indicate what the weather will be like.

Girls Exploring Physics
Given that women make up less than 25 percent of Canadian graduate students pursing physics, SFU physicist Sarah Johnson hopes her workshop "Girls Exploring Physics" will draw girls to the discipline. Johnson says the initiative, running for a second consecutive year in 2011, targets girls in senior high school because "this is about the age when girls become less interested in physics and engineering. A lot of girls take high-school physics but there's a big drop off in their interest in the d
6.253 Convex Analysis and Optimization (MIT)
This course will focus on fundamental subjects in (deterministic) optimization, connected through the themes of convexity, geometric multipliers, and duality. The aim is to develop the core analytical and computational issues of continuous optimization, duality, and saddle point theory using a handful of unifying principles that can be easily visualized and readily understood. The mathematical theory of convex sets and functions will be central, and will allow an intuitive, highly visual, geomet
