The Magnetosphere - Earth Raises its Shields
A view of a computer-generated model of the Earth's magnetosphere. Semi-transparent surfaces represent particle density (red is high, blue is low) and silvery tubes represent the magnetic field lines. In this particular model, the solar wind has an ambient density of 8.35 particles-cm^3. The isosurfaces are then red (>17 particles-cm^3), yellow (>12 particles-cm^3), green (>8.6 particles-cm^3) and blue (<1.0 particle-cm^3).

The Ocean Floor - by StudyJams
Earth's most magnificent and enormous landforms are all on the ocean floor.  Volcanoes and earthquakes change the ocean floor, creating new landforms.  Erosion on land also deposits minerals and animal matter on the ocean floor.  Learn more about the ocean floor with this slide show from StudyJams.  Vibrant photos are set to music, with information written under each photo.  A short, self-checking quiz is also provided with this link.

Engineering in Sports
Imagining themselves arriving at the Olympic gold medal soccer game in Beijing, students begin to think about how engineering is involved in sports. After a discussion of kinetic and potential energy, an associated hands-on activity gives students an opportunity to explore energy absorbing materials as they try to protect an egg from being crushed.
