Completing the Circuit
In the everyday electrical devices we use calculators, remote controls and cell phones a voltage source such as a battery is required to close the circuit and operate the device. In this hands-on activity, students use a battery, wires, small light bulb and a light bulb holder to learn the difference between an open circuit and a closed circuit, and understand that electric current only occurs in a closed circuit.
The Beat Goes On (Activity)
In this activity, students learn about their heart rate and different ways it can be measured. Students construct a simple measurement device using clay and a toothpick, and then use this device to measure their heart rate under different circumstances (i.e., sitting, standing and jumping). Students make predictions and record data on a worksheet.

Computing and Data Analysis for Environmental Applications, Fall 2003
Covers computational and data analysis techniques for environmental engineering applications. First third of subject introduces MATLAB and numerical modeling. Second third emphasizes probabilistic concepts used in data analysis. Final third provides experience with statistical methods for analyzing field and laboratory data. Numerical techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation are used to illustrate the effects of variability and sampling. Concepts are illustrated with environmental examples and

The Eyes Have It is an interactive teaching and assessment program on vision care. The Instructional Mode provides an overview of the visual system and disorders of the eyes using photographs or captioned streaming videos supplemented with text. In Quiz Mode, users have a chance to test your knowledge and be scored. There is a quiz corresponding to each topic in the Instructional Mode.
Caves were important refuges for humans and animals that coexisted during the late Pleistocene, the epoch of ice ages that ended 10,000 years ago. These sheltered environments can preserve evidence of extinct biological communities that archaeologists, paleontologists, and geneticists can mine for clues the species' biology, behavior, and evolution. Recently, exceptionally well-preserved bones from European caves have yielded DNA for two Ice Age species, Neanderthals and cave bears. The teams-on
Malaria kills more than a million people every year. Recently, an international team of biologists used genetic techniques to trace how the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum first emerged to infect humans. In their study of chimpanzees in West Africa, the researchers discovered that P. falciparum evolved from Plasmodium reichenowi, a species of chimpanzee malaria. Malaria thus began much like many other modern pandemics such as HIV, SARS, and swine flu—it jumped from animals to humans.

In a 1943 radio broadcast, Dillon S. Meyer, director of the War Relocation Authority, conveys his disapproval of the Japanese internment camps, which he has been overseeing since they were instituted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942. (3:47)
By: icamp2012school Solar energy from photovoltaic devices has been around since the early days of the space race, but historically has not had a substantial impact on our global energy scheme. Is that now changing? Dr. Larry Kazmerski is the executive director of Science & Technology Partnerships at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO. He has worked at NREL for over 30 years and was previously the director of the National Center for Photovoltaics. His talk is fille

Turtles use their front limb (flipper) of its skeleton to propel themselves through water. It is webbed and is connected to a ball and socket joint, allowing the turtle to be agile in water. Its sharp claws help the turtle to grab and defend itself.
