Practice in Landscape Planning and Design, Part I
This is a studio course for the students who experience spatial design for the first time. Students learn roles and meanings of spatial design and what are good spatial designs as well as basic knowledge and skills on landscape design.
Global Resource Economics
Regarding the use and preservation of natural resources, I’m going to state about the desirable way to take care of the present state and global environment using different points of view on the efficient distribution of natural resources. In other words, at first I will clarify the relationship between environment and economy and the external internalization policy. Subsequently, I will state about the recyclable resources depending on Natural Resource Economics [生物資源経済学] and st
Fundamental Technologies in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Advanced communication and power distribution technologies fully aware of Earth's environment are indispensable for the sustainable prosperity of mankind in the 21st century. In order to ensure technology to fulfill the demands of this kind of future society, there is a need for revolutionary progress in research related to electronic materials and devices, circuit and system design, and communication and power systems. In this course, we will cover an outline of basic electric and electronic te
Problem Solve Your School
Students apply what they have learned about the engineering design process to a real-life problem that affects them and/or their school. They chose a problem as a group, and then follow the engineering design process to come up with and test their design solution. This activity teaches students how to use the engineering design process while improving something in the school environment that matters to them. By performing each step of the design process, students can experience what it is like t
This lecture will not only broadly cover ancient to modern philosophy theory, it will also refer to real problems and philosophies in society and science while commenting on the "work" and "significance" currently active philosophy.
AM I on the Radio?
During this activity, students create a working radio by soldering circuit components supplied from an AM radio kit. Since this activity is carried out in conjunction with the associated lessons concerning circuits and how an AM radio works, students should be able to identify each circuit component they are soldering, as well as how their placement causes the radio to work. Besides reinforcing concepts from the lessons, this activity will also teach students how to solder. Soldering is an activ
Design a Parachute
After a discussion about what a parachute is and how it works, students will create a parachute using different materials that they think will work best. The students will test their designs, which will be followed by a class discussion (and possible journal writing) to highlight which paper material worked best.
Testing the Caverns
This lesson provides a fun, activity-based closure to the Asteroid Impact unit. Students build model caverns using paper mache or clay and bury them in a tray of sand. Next, they test the models by dropping balls onto them to simulate an asteroid hitting the earth. By molding paper mache around a balloon to form a dome, or around a small cardboard box to form a rectangular structure, students will be able to build their caverns.
In this unit, students learn about the six simple machines and are introduced to compound machines. In the first lesson, students learn about work as defined by physical science and see that work is made easier through the use of simple machines. The second lesson introduces students to three of the six simple machines used by many engineers: the inclined plane, the wedge and the screw. Also, students become familiar with each machine's mechanical advantage and how it makes work easier. The thir
New Boxes From Old
Students find the volume and surface area of a rectangular box (e.g., a cereal box), and then figure out how to convert that box into a new, cubical box having the same volume as the original. As they construct the new, cube-shaped box from the original box material, students discover that the cubical box has less surface area than the original, and thus, a cube is a more efficient way to package things.
3 Identifying and involving stakeholders in a project For every project, there will be a range of individuals or groups who have an interest in the different stages of the project. It could be the end users of an IT system, the line managers who will be expected to lead a restructuring initiative throughout the organisation, or the marketing department which will promote a new product. The support of these stakeholders is essential, if the project is to succeed. Therefore a key responsibility of the project manager will be to identify these stak

Choosing a Pyramid Site
Working in engineering project teams, students evaluate sites for the construction of a pyramid. They base their decision on site features as provided by a surveyor's report; distance from the quarry, river and palace; and other factors they deem important to the project based on their team's values and priorities.

Quels sont les avantages de la transmission progressive des images dans les cas de faible connectivité ou débit par exemple et comment réaliser cette transmission.
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.
Load It Up!
Students take a hands-on look at the design of bridge piers (columns). First they brainstorm types of loads that might affect a Colorado bridge. Then they determine the maximum possible load for that scenario, and calculate the cross-sectional area of a column designed to support that load. Choosing from clay, foam or marshmallows, they create model columns and test their calculations.
As Charlotte uses her web to communicate, the students will also create a web to send a small message. The students will learn how a spider creates its web, and about the different types of webs spiders make. With this knowledge, the students will design and create their own web and incorporate a message.
Sound Booth Construction
Students explore the sound dampening ability of numerous materials by designing and prototyping model sound booths. As a result, students learn about how sound is reflected, absorbed and travels through various materials, thus giving them an overview of sound dampening, energy absorption and sound propagation in the context of engineering. Students also create blueprints and document their findings in a formal lab report.
