Hurricane Dennis from TRMM: August 27, 1999
A fly-in to Hurricane Dennis on August 27, 1999, showing the three-dimensional structure of the precipitation as measured by the Precipitation Radar instrument on TRMM. In this animation, a surface of constant precipitation is colored by the value of the precipitation on the ground under the surface. The global cloud cover data was measured by GOES.
An Overview of SeaWiFS and the SeaStar Spacecraft
Visitors can read and view animations and a movie that describe the SeaStar spacecraft and the SeaWiFS instrument. Materials presented here explain the physical characteristics of the vehicle, its launch procedure and orbit, and the capabilities of the instrument. Links to related topics are provided.

What is "Computer Science" ?
Hal Abelson gives an introduction to the "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" lecture with an explanation of Declarative and Imperative programming.
Excerpted and adapted from Hal Abelson, "Introductory Undergraduate Subjects in Computer Science":-
6.001 differs from typical introductory computer science subjects in using Scheme (a block-structured dialect of Lisp) rather than Pascal as its programming vehicle. The subject's developers feel strongly that Pascal

Primitive Insects of the Congaree Swamp
In this video segment from NatureScene, observe dragonflies and mayflies near Cedar Creek at Congaree Swamp National Park.
In this lesson, students are introduced to communications engineers as people who enable long-range communication. In the lesson demonstration, students discuss the tendency of sound to diminish with distance and model this phenomenon using a slinky. Finally, Alexander Graham Bell is introduced as the inventor of the telephone and a pioneer in communications engineering.
Sticks and Stones Will Break That Bone!
Students learn about the strength of bones and methods of helping to mend fractured bones. During a class demonstration, a chicken bone is broken by applying a load until it reaches a point of failure (fracture). Then, working as biomedical engineers, students teams design their own splint or cast to help repair a fractured bone, learning about the strength of materials used.
How Tall Are We?
Kindergartners measure each other's height using large building blocks, then visit a 2nd and a 4th grade class to measure those students. They can also measure adults in the school community. Results are displayed in age-appropriate bar graphs (paper cut-outs of miniature building blocks glued on paper to form a bar graph) comparing the different age groups. The activities that comprise this lesson help students develop the concepts and vocabulary to describe, in a non-ambiguous way, how height
Cognitive Disability and Cognitive Enhancement
Prof Jeff McMahan,Rutgers University explores why it is important for our understanding of problems in bioethics to determine the moral status of human beings whose cognitive capacities and potential are no higher than those of higher nonhuman animals.
