How to Predict the Future(s)
Over the last century, there have been many spectacularly bad predictions of how technology will evolve and how it will be used—and a few almost clairvoyant forecasts of technology trends. This course will investigate both. By examining predictions made about the Internet, video on demand, cellular telephony, nuclear power, and other technologies, students will attempt to discern why some predictions work and most don’t. Much of the course will be devoted to techniques in scenario planning a

Falling Water
Students drop water from different heights to demonstrate the conversion of water's potential energy to kinetic energy. They see how varying the height from which water is dropped affects the splash size. They follow good experiment protocol, take measurements, calculate averages and graph results. In seeing how falling water can be used to do work, they also learn how this energy transformation figures into the engineering design and construction of hydroelectric power plants, dams and reservoi

Who's the Boss. An exploration of the ongoing tug-of-war between fairness and flexibility in the Aus
When Labor swept to power in 2007 it carried a clear mandate to bury the Howard government’s controversial Work Choices reforms. Its Fair Work legislation, which took effect in July 2009, was eagerly anticipated by those seeking a more equitable balance between employee rights and employer flexibility. But 8 months on, controversy remains. Some say Fair Work delivers. Some say it’s little different. Others, including Opposition leader Tony Abbott, say it goes too far. So how has Fair Work c
