Paleoecology: Documenting Long-term Environmental Variability
The objectives of this lab are to 1) provide students with an overview of paleoecological techniques, 2) illustrate how these techniques are used to document local changes in peat-accumulating wetlands over long time-scales (centuries to millennia), and 3) illustrate how long-term perspectives on environmental variability aid in the interpretation of recent environmental changes. Students actively create and interpret a hypothetical plant macrofossil and charcoal record spanning the last few tho
Slide Right on By Using an Inclined Plane
Students explore building a pyramid, learning about the simple machine called an inclined plane. They also learn about another simple machine, the screw, and how it is used as a lifting or fastening device. During a hands-on activity, students see how the angle of inclination and pull force can make it easier (or harder) to pull an object up an inclined plane.
Wireless Sensor Networks for Ecology
Field biologists and ecologists are starting to open new avenues of inquiry at greater spatial and temporal resolution, allowing them to "observe the unobservable" through the use of wireless sensor networks. Sensor networks facilitate the collection of diverse types of data (from temperature to imagery and sound) at frequent intervals -- even multiple times per second -- over large areas, allowing ecologists and field biologists to engage in intensive and expansive sampling and to unobtrusively
Sleeping Beauty Invades Rat's Genome
Knockouts are not just for Mice anymore. Aron Geurts and Howard Jacob from the Medical College of Wisconsin talk about their plans for creating transgenic rats using the Sleeping beauty transposon. Coming out of work pioneered by Colin Bishop's lab, Geurts and Jacob describe how the Sleeping Beauty system can be used to make transgenic rats and their plans to make the phenotype data from these rats available via the MCW PGA website (http://pga.mcw.edu) and the strains themselves accessible via a
Protein interaction networks - Prof. Yin Liu
Inference of gene modules and protein interaction networks using using synthetic lethality method (e.g., Pan X et al, Cell 124 1069-1081, 2006) the yeast-two-hybrid method and homology with model organisms. Part of the Computer-Aided Discovery Methods course taught at Baylor College of Medicine.
Shrinking the economy
In this podcast Dr Robert Hoffmann talks about how important psychology is to business and asks if we have talked ourselves into recession. Dr Hoffmann is a member of the International Centre for Behavioural Business Research (ICBBR) within the Nottingham University Business School(NUBS). The centre has also recently opened a new extension at The University of Nottingham, Ningbo China. The centre's research brings together a range of experts who share an interest in studying decision-making in
Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations. One operation to attach steel plates to the bone, and a second operation once the bone has healed, to remove them. F
Butterfly camouflaging with brush in the forest.
Butterflies are true flight insects and have two pairs of large wings that are covered with tiny scales. Butterflies are generally brightly colored and are important pollinators for many plants. They have specialized mouth parts for sucking nectar from plants.

Hot Problem Solving
Student teams follow the steps of the engineering design process to meet the challenge of getting their entire class from one location on the playground to the sidewalk without touching the ground between. The class develops a well thought-out plan while following the steps of the engineering design process. Then, they test their solution by going outside and trying it out. Through the post-activity assessment, they compare their problem-solving experience to real life engineering challenges, su
Crews Speak with Pope Benedict XVI
The STS-134 and Expedition 27 crews joined together in the Kibo module for a special call from Pope Benedict XVI.
Students learn about the causes, composition and types of volcanoes. They begin with an overview of the Earth's interior and how volcanoes form. Once students know about how a volcano functions, they learn how engineers predict eruptions. In a class demonstration, students watch and measure a mock volcanic eruption and observe the phases of an eruption, seeing how a volcano gets its shape and provides us with clues to predict a blast.
Engineers Speak for the Trees
Students begin by reading Dr. Seuss' The Lorax as an example of how over-development can cause long-lasting environmental destruction. Students discuss how to balance the needs of the environment with the needs of human industry. Student teams are asked to serve as natural resource engineers, city planning engineers and civil engineers with the task to replant the nearly destroyed forest and develop a sustainable community design that can co-exist with the re-established natural area.
The Trouble with Topos
Students learn how to identify the major features in a topographical map. They learn that maps come in a variety of forms: city maps, road maps, nautical maps, topographical maps, and many others. Map features reflect the intended use. For example, a state map shows cities, major roads, national parks, county lines, etc. A city map shows streets and major landmarks for that city, such as hospitals and parks. Topographical maps help navigate the wilderness by showing the elevation, mountains, pea

Loss of sea otters, loss of kelp forests
Events that affect one population typically affect other populations. This phenomenon is demonstrated by the otter-urchin-kelp connection.
