Giant Silkmoth Emerges/Expands Wings Realtime/Timelapse
Here we see the original raw footage in both realtime and timelapse. A male Euryalus SIlkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus) struggles out of his cocoon, and then expands his wings. This moth species typically has a wingspan of about 4-5 inches across from wingtip-to-wingtip, and is sometimes mistaken for a bat or small bird when encountered flying at night.

"History of the Hudson 8/9 Slide Rule" Full interview with Frank Adorney about the conception, development and fabrication of the Hudson 8 and Hudson 9 slide rule. This rule, invented by James R. "Pop" Bland, a mathematics professor at the U.S. Naval Academy, was the prototype for the famous Keuffel & Esser Deci-Lon slide rule. Bland asked his former student Frank Adorney for help fabricating the initial mock-ups and working prototypes of his new rule. This interview was conducted by Deborah Douglas,

Accuracy of measurement in navigation depends very much on the situation. If a sailor’s target is an island 200 km wide, sailing off center by 10 or 20 km is not a major problem. But, if the island were only 1 km wide, it would be missed if off just the smallest bit. Many of the measurements made while navigating involve angles, and a small error in the angle can translate to a much larger error in position when traveling long distances.
Up, Up and Away! - Airplanes
The airplanes unit begins with a lesson on how airplanes create lift, which involves a discussion of air pressure and how wings use Bernoulli's Principle to change air pressure. Following the lessons on lift, students explore the other three forces acting on airplanes — thrust, weight and drag. Following these lessons, students learn how airplanes are controlled and use paper airplanes to demonstrate these principles. The final lessons addresses societal and technological impacts airplanes hav
Where is Your Teacher?
In this activity, students will learn how to take bearing with a compass. They will also learn how to describe a bearing and find an object in their classroom using a bearing.
Topos, Compasses, and Triangles, Oh My!
In this activity, students will learn how to actually triangulate using a compass, topographical (topo) map and view of outside landmarks. It is best if a field trip to another location away from school is selected. The location should have easily discernable landmarks (like mountains or radio towers) and changes in elevation (to illustrate the topographical features) to enhance the activity. A national park is an ideal location, and visiting a number of parks, especially parks with hiking trail
