Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill: Poetry Reading
Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill is regarded among the most gifted Irish poets-- writing in Irish or English -- since William Butler Yeats and her poetry has been translated into many different languages. Raised in the Dingle Gaeltacht and in Nenagh, County Tipperary, she received her B.A. from University College Cork and has received honorary doctorates from Dublin City University and University College Cork. Her poetry collections include: An Dealg Droighin (1981), Rogha Dánta/Selected Poems (1986, 1988

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
Introduction to Christian Studies
In this lecture, we will explain the Christian Studies totally as the comprehensive studies of Christianity, which includes theology, philosophy of religion, and modern studies of religion.
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.
