In this activity, students filter different substances through a plastic window screen, different sized hardware cloth and poultry netting. Their model shows how the thickness of a filter in the kidney is imperative in deciding what will be filtered out and what will stay within the blood stream.

6 International Christmas
Learning languages and finding out about other countries can be fun, as well as useful, and this unit is an introduction to the differences in culture and language about which we all need to be aware. There are 10 independent sections: any selection of them can be studied in any order. Some are about why knowledge of other languages and cultures can be important; others are about what it’s like to study a foreign language or to have a career using a foreign language. This unit is aimed at seco

Stellar Wind Disruption by an Orbiting Neutron Star: Moderate X-Ray Luminosity
A tiny neutron star orbits incessantly around a massive star with a diameter a million times larger than its own. The high luminosity of the massive star drives a strong wind from its surface. The neutron star crashes through this wind at over 300 kilometers per second. The gravity and X-ray luminosity of the neutron star act to disrupt the wind, producing an extended wake of dense gas trailing behind the neutron star. This simulation, in the reference frame of the neutron star, shows conditions
2011 California College of the Arts Commencement (short)
California College of the Arts (CCA) held its 104th commencement exercises on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco.

El Nino Equatorial Fly-by Showing Sea Surface Temp and Height Anomaly on a Globe: January 1997 throu
An animation of sea surface temperature and sea surface height anomalies in the Pacific Ocean for the period January 1997 through December 1997. The data is shown on a globe and the point of view moves from showing a full globe to flying over the equatorial Pacific toward South America.
AMSR_E Pacific Sea Surface Temperature Data Used to Forecast 2003 Hurricane Season
Researchers and forecasters often study sea surface temperatures for an activity predictions for 2003 in part to changing conditions in the Pacific Ocean, such as the demise of El Nino. This sequence traces the evolution of the warmer-than-normal waters associated with the weak El Nino that developed in the late fall of 2002. By January, the warm conditions began to dissipate. Fewer than normal hurricanes generally form when El Nino is present. Researchers say the Pacific may transition to the c
