An Atlas of Cyberspaces
"CyberGeography is the study of the spatial nature of computer communications networks, particularly the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other electronic 'places' that exist behind our computer screens, popularly referred to as cyberspace." The Atlas of Cyberspaces highlights many efforts from around the world to visualize this type of information. Some of the features have links to download software tools, like an experimental browser that portrays Web sites as three dimensional buildings (the

Keeping Cool at Deep-Sea Vents
This Astrobiology Magazine article reports that a research team of marine scientists has determined that water chemistry controls the location and distribution of two species of weird worms inhabiting deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites: the tubeworm (Riftia pachyptila) and Pompeii worm (Alvinella pompejana). The article includes color images of the worms and monitoring equipment, links to related web pages and other astrobiology resources, and an MP3 machine text-to-speech function.

Putting a Twist on Inquiry
After studying linear motion and learning the basic concepts involved, (inertia, force, friction), middle level students can apply their learning to nonlinear situations. Using toy tops is one way to teach students the basic concepts of nonlinear motion in a fun and engaging way. In this activity, students design, construct, and test tops, then present their designs to the rest of the class.

2.14 Summing up
This unit is concerned with macroevolution – the patterns and processes of evolution above the species level. A crucial consideration in macroevolutionary studies is that of the evolutionary relationships (phylogeny) of the organisms in question. The unit begins with an introduction to the scope of macroevolutionary studies and illustrates methods of reconstructing phylogeny, from both morphological and molecular data.

Which Roof is Tops?
When you walk or drive around your neighborhood what do the roofs look like? What if you lived in an area with a different climate, how would that effect the style of roof that you might find. This is an introductory activity to explore the advantages of different roof shapes for different climates or situations.

Digital Mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Geographic Information Systems (GIS), once used predominantly by experts in cartography and computer programming, have become more and more pervasive in both business and consumer use. This unit explores GIS in general as a technology for about which more can be learned, and it also explores applications of that technology. Students will especially get to experience GIS technology through the use of Google Earth on the environmental topic of plastics in the ocean in an area known as the Great Pa

The Portable Fluid Power Demonstrator (PFPD)
Working as teams, students learn the basics of fluid power design using the PFPD as their investigative platform. Students will investigate the similarities and differences between using pneumatic and hydraulic power in the PFPD. While the main components of the PFPD have been previously assembled, the students must determine the correct way to connect the valves to the actuators using the colored, plastic tubing. Once connected correctly, students may have timed challenges between others to tes

Human Power
Students do work by lifting a known mass over a period of time. The mass and measured distance and time is used to calculate force, work, energy and power in metric units. The students’ power is then compared to horse power and the power required to light a 60 W light bulb.

Life Cycles
In this lesson, students will extend their knowledge of matter and energy cycles in an organism to engineering life cycle assessment of a product. Students will learn about product life cycle assessment and the flow of energy through the cycle, comparing it to the flow of nutrients and energy in the life cycle of an organism.

Space Shelter
The invasion has taken place and we need to find a new home. To ensure your survival beyond earth’s occupation you must design a shelter that can be built on another planet. Students will research the characteristics of a planet of their choice. They will design a shelter that will allow them to survive on a new planet, and explain it in words.
