So you want to be an architect - Part 7
This is Part 7, and the final episode of So you Want to be an Architect. Architecture like many things is about many things and in this final part, an architect speaks to you about all of the different things that you may need to do to enter the field of architecture. (3:45)
This video explains how to calculate the weight of a horse using Archimedes' Principle. Includes a demonstration with digital scales and an overflow apparatus. The forces acting on hot air balloons, cargo and cruise ships is explained by this principle from the ancient Greeks.
Marine architects and engineers use this basic principle to design floating structures - ships, submarines and oil rigs.
Suitable as a learning resource for an introduction to buoyancy and Archimedes in physi
Investigating Wisconsin History-Cultures in Conflict
Cultures in Conflict - This program highlights Wisconsin history between 1634 and 1832. Series host Angie finds an unusual type of architecture - halftimbering - at Old World Wisconsin. This discovery leads her to investigate how these structures came to be built here. As Angie learns about changes in housing that took place in this 200-year period, she also becomes aware of the changes Wisconsin Indians experienced during that time.

This student made video uses computer animation and narration to help you see how the different views, of different observers, see reality in different ways. This video addresses the speed of light and the laws of physics. Run time 02:00.
This film is about Sir Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Physics. It is a student-made project, using legos to illustrate the story of Newton and his three laws. Audio is very loud and clear. Lego illustrations are very well done. Run time 04:52.
In this video, musician Mark Wood from the Transiberian Orchestra helps a high school physics teacher give a lesson about sound. The viper has seven strings, some thin and some heavy. The teacher explains that the mass to length ratio for the heavy strings will produce a lower frequency while the mass to length ratio for the thin strings produce a higher frequency. As he explains (and measures) the various strings, Mark demonstrates by playing the instrument. He also explains that half of the
Architects sometimes use architectural animations to explain their designs. To probe the practice of architectural film/animation, this paper assembles filmic spaces as a conceptual tool that connects spatial archetypes with camera movements.
Lawrence Krauss gives a talk on our current picture of the universe, how it will end, and how it could have come from nothing. Krauss is the author of many bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, including "The Physics of Star Trek."

Brian Greene explains how extra dimensions may solve several problems in physics, and gives his stance on the possibility of a "multi-verse". To learn more about String Theory, watch Brian Greene's "The Elegant Universe" on NOVA: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/ Also see Brian Greene's book on String Theory "The Elegant Universe": http://www.amazon.com/Elegant-Universe-Superstrings-Dimensions-Ultimate/dp/0375708111/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1274165084&sr=8-1 Or Brian Greene's book o
[Recorded: 1999] The Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) occupies a special place in the history of computing in part for its technical accomplishments but also for being at the center of a landmark legal case. It was built by Iowa physics professor John Vincent Atanasoff and graduate student Clifford Berry. Technically, the ABC was an electronic equation solver. It could find solutions to systems of simultaneous linear equations with up to 29 unknowns, a type of problem encountered in Atansasoff'
