Mr Magoo-Noah's Ark-Part 2 of 3
In part 2 of this video, Noah, played by Mr. Magoo, continues to do as God commands--to build an ark, collect food, and gather 2 of every kind of animal.  The family and animals become restless and begin bickering. This is a wonderful teaching resource for the Christian classroom, for a church function, and/or for home to share this special Bible story. It would also be beneficial for a study on ancient history (10:00)

Computational GRIDs and online laboratories
Many projects addressing the creation of online laboratories have been developed recently. They have a common goal: to enable students and professional learners to get hands-on experience without moving from the places where they are. Nevertheless, the found solutions are often very different among them, and interoperability between different online laboratories systems does not exist. In this paper we present our work around the exploitation of Grid technologies for sharing instrumentation and

The evolution of ICT-based learning environments: which perspectives for the school of the future?
This paper briefly outlines the evolution of ICT-based learning environments discussing some of the main aspects that have characterised such evolution (eg, technological evolution, changed cognitive and pedagogical frameworks, changed role assigned to ICT-based systems in education). The objective is to point out how the implementation of innovative learning environments, based on advanced technology, is the result of the strict interrelation between educational and cognitive theories, technolo

Calculate the Top Quark Mass
Students use conservation of momentum to calculate the mass of the top quark. This activity examines the fingerprint of a top/antitop production that took place in the D-Zero Detector at Fermilab on July 9, 1995. This activity will build on student understanding of vector addition and depends upon only a small amount of particle physics explanation.

Applying Ohm's Law to Semiconductors
This project allows students to apply concepts of momentum conservation and energy conservation from classical physics. However, here they are not enough: they must be combined with modern physics, using concepts from relativity and particle physics as well as modern units that put energy, mass, and momentum in terms of MeV and GeV. Most important, students will learn about both fundamental and cutting-edge physics by actually doing what physicists do.

Environmental Landfill Management
Lesson objectives: Students will be able to identify what a pollutant is and its affects on the environment. The students will demonstrate knowledge of the vocabulary used in environmental management by the DOE and other federal agencies. The students will attain a basic understanding of waste problems within our environment and the fundamental concepts of the laws of nature, science, physics, and engineering. Students will construct and operate a small-scale leach-bed barrier system.

Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in cou
