Vowel Boot Camp: rip-ripe
A funny snippet of a boot camp where vowels are the soldiers. It teaches the "i" vowel sound and how "e" changes rip to ripe. It contains a clever boot camp song for vowels.
REMIXING ÇATALHÖYÜK For more than a decade, archaeologists and scholars have gathered in central Turkey to explore the remains of the 9,000-year-old village of Çatalhöyük. First excavated in the 1960s, Çatalhöyük became world-famous for its dense architecture and spectacular wall decorations. Between 1997 and 2003, a team from the University of California Berkeley worked intensively on one building there, bringing to light the life history of a Neolithic home. Remixing Çatalhöyük fea

The restless Universe
The restless Universe introduces you to major achievements and figures in the history of physics, from Copernicus to Einstein and beyond. The route from classical to quantum physics will be laid out for you without recourse to challenging mathematics but with the fundamental features of theories and ...
Einstein's Theory of Relativity
Einstein's special theory of relativity states that the same laws of physics hold true in all inertial reference frames and that the speed of light is the same for all observers, even those moving with respect to one another. In this video segment, adapted from NOVA, one of Einstein's thought experiments is re-created to reinforce one consequence of special relativity: that events that are simultaneous to one observer are not to an observer in a different reference frame that is moving with resp

Aristotle Part 1
A video about Aristotle. He 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 obse

"Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis, Fall 2008"
" This team-taught multidisciplinary course provides information relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. It begins with in-depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals. Parenchymal and cerebrovascular neuroanatomy and application of sophisticated structural analysis algorithms for segmentation and registration of functional data are discussed. Additional topics include: fMRI experi
Washington As It Was: Photographs by Theodor Horydczak, 1923-1959
Spanning from the mid 1920s through the 1950s, the Theodor Horydczak collection (about 14,350 photographs online) documents the architecture and social life of the Washington metropolitan area in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, including exteriors and interiors of commercial, residential, and government ...
Into the Wind (4 Part Series)
Into the Wind is a four-part film meant to excite young people about how they can interact with the wind while teaching the basic physics. Each section contains an activity young people can do themselves (fly a kite, sail a model sailboat, make a pinwheel). Animations explain the physics behind these real-world kid’s activities. These lessons lead to examples of more involved wind technologies such as hang gliding, sailing, windmills, and wind turbines. The film moves quickly, switching betwee
The Impact of mobile learning
Phase one of MoLeNET (2007/08) involved 75 colleges and 18 schools, approximately 10,000 learners and 2,000 staff, in 32mobile learning projects. The Learning and Skills Council provided funding for h...
The History of Gargoyles
MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids travels to Salvadori Center for Architecture in New York City. Our young host leans learn about the history of gargoyles in architecture.
Lightweight Isotruss Bike Using Carbon Fibers
Engineers used elements of architecture and geometry to create a strong but lightweight triangle-based isotruss bicycle frame. The isotruss is first wound with carbon fiber using a sheet that holds the tension constant. The engineers then hand-wind Kevlar strands over the isotruss. Students might be suprised that geometry is being used in making bike frames. It is also a good introduction into the triangle and its strengths.
Turning Dunes into Architecture
Architecture student Magnus Larsson details his bold plan to transform the harsh Sahara desert using bacteria and a surprising construction material: the sand itself. Magnus Larsson hopes to build new structures in the desert -- by using bacteria to turn shifting sand into a solid mass. Run time 11:44.
To study about the basic architecture of biological macromolecules like proteins, DNA, and virus. Futhermore, this lecture covers recent advances in the field of structural biology. If possible, WCU professor(Michael J. Eck at Havard Medical School) will give a lecture for one or two weeks.
identical particles, atoms, and the periodic table
Weightlessness - Professor Steven Pollock explains weightlessness in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics series. The video uses lecture format, pictures, and a whiteboard to aid in the explanations about apparent weight, Newton's Laws, and weightlessness. Run time 10:13.
12.810 Dynamics of the Atmosphere (MIT)
This course begins with a study of the role of dynamics in the general physics of the atmosphere, the consideration of the differences between modeling and approximation, and the observed large-scale phenomenology of the atmosphere. Only then are the basic equations derived in rigorous manner. The equations are then applied to important problems and methodologies in meteorology and climate, with discussions of the history of the topics where appropriate. Problems include the Hadley circulation a
