What is "Computer Science" ?
Hal Abelson gives an introduction to the "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" lecture with an explanation of Declarative and Imperative programming.
Excerpted and adapted from Hal Abelson, "Introductory Undergraduate Subjects in Computer Science":-
6.001 differs from typical introductory computer science subjects in using Scheme (a block-structured dialect of Lisp) rather than Pascal as its programming vehicle. The subject's developers feel strongly that Pascal

Ready, Set, Escape
During this project, students will be asked to design a device that will measure out a time period of exactly 3 minutes. They will be asked to brainstorm ideas using the different materials provided. Students will observe and explain the effects of conservation of energy.
Survey shows young adults ready to change their behaviour based on sustainable values
http://concordia.ca/now Young adults from Montreal, Halifax and New York City have very specific ideas about what it takes to build a more sustainable world. And they are willing to make the necessary changes to their lifestyles to make such a world a reality. This is the conclusion drawn from a survey sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which surveyed 400 young adults between the ages of 18 and 35. The survey was led by Solange Tremblay, associate professor of commu

Panel 3: Transportation Policy and Implementation Challenges to HSR Development
California has not undertaken an infrastructure project on the scale of HSR in more than a generation. Any project of this size necessarily faces uncertainty over financial feasibility. In the case of HSR, there has been great uncertainty surrounding the financing for construction costs, as well as the costs of operating the HSR system once construction is complete. The promise made by HSR supporters has been that private monies will finance a significant portion of the project's construction an

Crocodile Skeleton - Hind Limb
The crocodile's hind limbs are strong and sturdy and are used to pull itself across the ground when its out of the water. The ball and socket joint allows the limb to move in different directions.
In this lesson, students are introduced to communications engineers as people who enable long-range communication. In the lesson demonstration, students discuss the tendency of sound to diminish with distance and model this phenomenon using a slinky. Finally, Alexander Graham Bell is introduced as the inventor of the telephone and a pioneer in communications engineering.
Sticks and Stones Will Break That Bone!
Students learn about the strength of bones and methods of helping to mend fractured bones. During a class demonstration, a chicken bone is broken by applying a load until it reaches a point of failure (fracture). Then, working as biomedical engineers, students teams design their own splint or cast to help repair a fractured bone, learning about the strength of materials used.
How Tall Are We?
Kindergartners measure each other's height using large building blocks, then visit a 2nd and a 4th grade class to measure those students. 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, how height
