Schönrise, Schönset; or, MIT Planning: from Dawn to DUSP (part 2)
Departmental 75th Anniversary Musical Production Following the DUSP 75th Anniversary Symposium, over 300 members of the DUSP community gathered for a Gala Dinner in South Boston's Artist for Humanity Epicenter. In addition to wonderful food and conversation, past and present faculty members and students staged a production of a DUSP musical tribute, entitled "Schönrise, Schönset" or MIT Planning: from Dawn to DUSP."
Caryn Saxon - Academic Spotlight
Caryn Saxon is the coordinator for the Networks for Girls program in Missouri State University's Center for Dispute Resolution, and a student in the criminology program. She was selected to conduct listening research through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and the Center for Girls and Young Women at the National Council on Crime and Delinquency. These listening sessions will identify priorities for the recently established National Girls Institute. The institute is
Architectural Applications of Complex Adaptive Systems
This paper presents methods and case studies of approaching architectural design and fabrication utilizing Complex Adaptive Systems (CASs). The case studies and observations described here are findings from a continuing body of research investigating applications of computational systems to architectural practice. CASs are computational mechanisms from the computer science field of Artificial Life that provide frameworks for managing large numbers of elements and their inter-relationships. The a

"Theory of Solids II, Spring 2009"
" This is the second term of a theoretical treatment of the physics of solids. Topics covered include linear response theory; the physics of disorder; superconductivity; the local moment and itinerant magnetism; the Kondo problem and Fermi liquid theory."
Physics in Action: Resonance
Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates resonance in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics in Action series. The video uses lecture format and demonstrations to aid in the explanation of resonance and frequency. Run time 04:59.
Physics is Fun to Imagine
In this archival footage from BBC TV, celebrated physicist Richard Feynman explains what fire, magnets, rubber bands (and more) are like at the scale of the jiggling atoms they're made of. This accessible, enchanting conversation in physics reveals a teeming nano-world that's just plain fun to imagine. Run time 07:06.
This video is a high school physics project that includes clear audio explanations about electromagnets and electro magnetic energy. This applies to generators, electromagnets, solenoids, and speakers. The video gives you a very specific examples: how a stereo speaker works, a magnetic toy, . Run time 8:08.
Visualization of Einstein's Special Relativity
This video demonstrates the effects of Einstein's special relativity on objects that move at high velocities. It shows a 3-dimensional view containing 2 dimensions of space and one dimension of time. This view is used to demonstrate the difference between classical physics and Einstein's relativity. No audio. Run time 02:30.
Velocity and Time
Unlike Lorentz, Albert Einstein was motivated to perfect the central ideas of physics rather than to explain the Michelson-Morley experiment. The result was a wholly new understanding of the meaning of space and time, including such matters as the transformation of velocities, time dilation, and the twin paradox.
Learning As We Grow: Development and Learning
This 30 minute program examines the concept of readiness for learning and illustrates how developmental pathways — including physical, cognitive, and linguistic — all play a part in students’ learning. Featured are a first-grade teacher, a seventh- and eighth-grade science teacher, and a senior physics teacher. Some classroom examples shown.
Aristotle Part 4
Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in
Western philosophy. He was the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics. Aristotle's views on the physical sciences profoundly shaped medieval scholarship, and their influence extended well into the Renaissance, although they were ultimately replaced by modern physics. In the biological sciences, some of his observations were only
Don't Build Your Home, Grow It!
TED Fellow and urban designer Mitchell Joachim presents his vision for sustainable, organic architecture: eco-friendly abodes grown from plants and -- wait for it -- meat. Soft cars, jet packs and houses made of meat are all in a day's work for urban designer, architect and TED Fellow Mitchell Joachim. While the concept of these future homes is fascinating and a bit "far out there", the ideas are based on scientific research and the merging of biology and architecture. This video could be used t
How to Grow Fresh Air
Researcher Kamal Meattle shows how an arrangement of three common houseplants, used in specific spots in a home or office building, can result in measurably cleaner indoor air. With its air-filtering plants and sustainable architecture, Kamal Meattle's office park in New Delhi is a model of green business. Meattle himself is a longtime activist for cleaning up India's air. Run time 04:07.
Expansion and Contraction
Using balloons to illustrate the process, Eureka! shows how, when matter gets hot, its molecules go faster and the solid, liquid, or gas expands. Conversely, when matter gets cold, its molecules go slower, and the solid, liquid, or gas contracts. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's. The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way. Good for students of any elementary school level.
Engineering an Empire - France Part 1-Napoleon
This video is about how France became a great Empire. It talks about the architecture of the Country and the Royalty who had them the buildings built. It also talks about the fact the France pioneered new ways of fighting in war. France's quest for perfection led them to build on an unimaginable scale which led to revolution. Napoleon wanted an empire to rival Rome.(8:31)
