Energy Workshop: Energy 101
Introduces the basics of energy from how we measure it, to how it is regulated and priced, to how you can engage in exciting new opportunities for energy efficiency, green architecture, and renewable energy. Recorded in May 2008 by Penn State University for the Local Development Districts of Pennsylvania's Energy Partnership, in Milton, PA.
Hidden Line Elimination in Projected Grid Surfaces
The hidden line and hidden surface problems are simpler when restricted to special classes of objects. An example is the class of grid surfaces, that is, graphs of bivariate functions represented by their values on a set of grid points. Projected grid surfaces have geometric properties which permit hidden line or hidden surface elimination to be done more easily than in the general case. These properties are discussed in this paper, and an algorithm is given which exploits them
DiscoverySchool.com: Lesson Plans
Check out the latest lesson plans from DiscoverySchool.com (last mentioned in the December 14, 2001 Scout Report). Eight new health-related lessons are available for grades 6-8 and 9-12, covering addiction, the human eye, headaches, weight control, and other topics. The lesson plans are clearly organized and may include discussion questions, vocabulary, evaluation guidelines, and links for online research. An archive of older lesson plans is organized by subject in a sidebar for easy retrieval.
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
ALPS Common Competency Map - Ethical Practice
The work of ALPS is based on the hypothesis that if students receive feedback from different assessors (including other professionals, peers, service-users etc) in diverse practice situations, then confidence, competence, assessment reliability and interprofessional working skills will all be improved. Communication skills, Team Working and Ethical Practice were selected as the initial competences to focus on as they are common across the QAA benchmarks and professional bodies’ regulatory occ
The Science of Swinging
Students learn what a pendulum is and how it works in the context of amusement park rides. While exploring the physics of pendulums, they are also introduced to Newton's first law of motion about continuous motion and inertia.

Research on the design technique begun from "human activity" in an environmental design
In environmental design, an important point is that each person concerned deals with a specific aspect of a project, and it is important these people discuss with, arrive at consensus, and advance steadily. One general problem in this environmental initial design stage that should be mentioned is that of concentrating only on the act of building, "field and facility". That is, the human activity, such as use, maintenance management, etc. after construction, and building usage are seldom consider
Urban Body Mutations through the Use of the Network Configuration
Taking as a starting point the hypotheses that the urban body is a self-adapted ecology made of material and non-material components (Bateson, 1972), relationships between elements are examined in an attempt to destabilize the static division of matter and idea and to inquire into those relationships that determine the structural coupling (Maturana, 2002) between body and environment, as well as the constitution of the body itself. Contemporary technology is used in order to trace these alterati
CRYSALLIZING DESIGN INTENTIONS, USING CNC, LASER AND RAPID PROTOTYPING TECHNOLOGIES
The advances made in the Rapid Prototyping and CAD/CAM (including CNC and Laser) Technologies are now offering designers the privilege of building physical realities, at whatever scale, directly and automatically from computer files, with the explicit implications of speed, precision and flexibility.

Classroom Management--Tattle Ender Idea
Charity Preston, veteran teacher and owner of Organized Classroom Blog, shows a strategy for ending tattling. She suggests having a discussion with students regarding the difference between what a teacher needs to know and what is considered tattling. You will need a container, pencils, and tattle strips. On Fridays, the teacher goes through the box to see if anything should be addressed. This is a quick and easy classroom management tool for the busy teacher. (8:47)
2.6.1 (a) Using Lego as a model
Atoms, elements and molecules are the building blocks of everything that makes up our world, including ourselves. In this unit you will learn the basic chemistry of how these components work together, starting with a chemical compound we are all very familiar with – water.
Sustainable Processes and Energy
Sustainable process and energy engineering is one of the most important engineering developments in the 21st century. But what precisely do we mean by it? Industrial processes and energy systems are sustainable if they promote development that 'meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own demands'. But achieving sustainability in the industrial realm will not be easy and can only be accomplished by overcoming formidable technical challe
