2.1 Some basic concepts
Energy resources are essential for any society, be it one dependent on subsistence farming or an industrialised country. There are many different sources of energy, some well-known such as coal or petroleum, others less so, such as tides or the heat inside the Earth. Is nuclear power a salvation or a nightmare? This unit provides background information to each resource, so that you can assess them for yourself.

"Mr Edwards and the Spider" by Robert Lowell (poetry reading)
It's a critique of the religion of Lowell's New England heritage. He was related to Mr. Edwards who preached sermons promising sinners the flames of hell. One of them was called "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God". http://tinyurl.com/3hp6vlr Josiah Hawley was Mr. Edwards' uncle who died by his own hand, supposedly consigned to the flames of hell because suicide is a mortal sin. Here's a good reading: http://www.kmp.podcastpeople.com/posts/21407 You might compare the poem to Donne's "Noc

Glowing Flowers
Student teams learn about engineering design of green fluorescent proteins (GFPs) and the use of GFPs in medical research, including stem cell research. The use of GFPs is simulated by adding fluorescent dye to water and allowing a flower or plant to transport the dye throughout its structure. Students apply their knowledge of GFPs to engineering applications in the medical, environmental and space exploration fields. Due to the fluorescing nature of the dye, plant life of any color, light or da
