Who's Down the Well?
Drinking water comes from many different sources, including surface water and groundwater. Environmental engineers analyze the physical properties of groundwater to predict how and where surface contaminants will travel. In this lesson, students will learn about several possible scenarios of contamination to drinking water. They will analyze the movement of example contaminants through groundwater such as environmental engineers must do (i.e., engineers identify and analyze existing contaminatio
Predator-prey relationship: Lynx
Lynxes have a dynamic predator-prey relationship with the hare, or rabbits. This relationship is cyclic. The hare population size increases every ten years or so because there is an abundance of vegetation. Shortly after, the lynx population increases because there are more hares to eat. Once the hares have eaten all the available vegetation, their population crashes because there is nothing to eat. The lynx population crashes shortly after that because there aren't enough hares around to eat.
Open Source from the course History of Information
This course explores the history of information and associated technologies, uncovering why we think of ours as 'the information age.' We will select moments in the evolution of production, recording, and storage from the earliest writing systems to the world of Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. In every instance, we'll be concerned with both what and when and how and why, and we will keep returning to the question of technological determinism: how do technological developments affect socie

Pranking Softies: The Faces of Microsoft campaign Microsoft has always had a history of pranks and well, sometimes you just need to play jokes on your colleagues. For this prank, Dan and I set up a fake photo shoot with the premise that they will be part of a new Microsoft campaign called The Faces of Microsoft. It's of course all made up, but watch and see just how far we can push the envelope. Enjoy! Tina and Dan
