Growing and Graphing
Students visit a 2nd and a 4th grade class to measure the heights of older students using large building blocks as a non-standard unit of measure. 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, ho
What's Down the Well?
This activity looks at physical models of groundwater and how environmental engineers determine possible sites for drinking water wells. During this activity, students will create their own groundwater well model using a coffee can and wire screening. The students will add red food coloring to their model to see how a pollutant can migrate through the groundwater into a drinking water resource.

Modis Landcover of Asia
New NASA satellite-generated land cover maps are providing scientists with a detailed picture of the distribution of Earths ecosystems and land use Scientists can better determine how vegetation is distributed and land is being used around the world with new NASA satellite-generated land-cover maps. These new maps, based on a global digital database of land cover types Earth images that is updated every 16 days, will help scientists better understand the Earths climate and carbon budget and clim
AIRS Volumetric Cloud Data (Fly Out)
This visualization shows Aqua-AIRS simulated volumetric cloud data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.
Images of Earth and Space II
This videotape tours the Solar System and outer space using scientific visualizations from Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the HPCC Earth and Space Sciences Project. At the Sun, simulations investigate processes that create magnetic field and release energetic particles. Earth science begins with the Pacific Ocean, studying the 1997-98 El Nino and Cyclone Susan. Crossing the globe, visualizations trace North Americas East Coast and ocean currents in the North Atlantic
The route of France
At the end of this chapter you will be able to follow a report of a sport event on the radio.

Alice Guy a-t-elle existé ? Une conférence de Maurice Gianati
Une absence quasi-totale de documents de première main et contemporains sur la présence d'Alice Guy dans la société Léon Gaumont pour les années 1895-1906 a entrainé chez les historiens anciens et modernes qui se sont intéressés à cette pionnière du cinématographe une grande dispersion et confusion dans l'établissement de la chronologie de ses débuts et de sa filmographie. Il était donc nécessaire d'effectuer une relecture critique des écrits et mémoires d'Alice Guy afin de
Naissance de l'industrie phonographique française. Conférence d'Henri Chamoux
Si l'histoire du cinéma fait l'objet de nombreuses études, il existe en revanche fort peu de travaux sur les débuts de la musique industrielle. La production massive du son enregistré à des fins de divertissement domestique avant 1914 ressemble à un mythe, tant sont devenues rares et fragiles les sources permettant d'écrire cette histoire. Gravure, pantographie, moulage, galvanoplastie : présentation d'un panorama des techniques de reproduction des disques et cylindres à la Belle É
