Magnetism - by StudyJams
Magnetism is the property of attracting iron. A magnetic object's magnetic force is how strong that attraction is. Magnetic fields are the areas where the magnetic force will work. Magnets also have opposite poles, negative and positive. Learn more about magnetism with this slide show from StudyJams. Detailed images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

Giant crocodiles of the past may still be stalking the earth. Experts provide evidence of past crocodiles much larger than those roaming the earth today. Short, one minute clip.
Functional Integration in CAD Systems
This paper examines the issue of integration in CAD systems and argues that for integration to be effective, it must address the functional aspects of a CAD system. It discusses the need for integrated systems and, within a structural engineering context, identifies several facets of integration that should be targeted. These include 2-D drafting and 3-D modelling, graphical and non-graphical design information, the CAD data structure and its user interface, as well as integration of the draftin
Giant Freshwater Stingray
Unknown to science until 1990, the giant freshwater stingray is an elusive creature that inhabits deep rivers in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and northern Australia. See one of these amazing creatures and learn information about it in this video. Run time 0:53.

In this video, we learn about the horn of this amazing creature and what it's purpose really is. Very kid friendly video that uses language that anyone can understand.
Killer Whale Ears
In this video, you will find out what's causing killer whales to jump out of the water. Wild Detectives presents great information in a fun and interesting way for children of all ages. You are sure to find out some things that you didn't already know about killer whales by watching this video.
Orcas are often called wolves of the sea because they hunt in packs, cooperatively herding fish into a tight circle. They stun the corralled fish by slapping them with their tails and then eat them one by one. On average, a killer whale eats 500 lbs. of food every day. Run time 0:52.
To communicate and socialize, orcas raise their tails high and slap them down on the surface of the water, which is called lob-tailing. They also use a beautiful and complex language of clicks and whistles, which mothers teach to their offspring. Resident pods even have their own unique dialects
Mother & Son
Orcas have a close-knit family structure and most stay with their mothers throughout life. The Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island photographs the dorsal fins of each whale as a way of identifying them and keeping track of the different pods. They estimate that the matriarch of one of the families is more than 90 years old.
Spyhopping is when orcas vertically propel themselves halfway out of the water and stay there for a moment, akin to a human treading water. They do this to sneak a peek at their surroundings above the surface - most commonly for food, but also just to see how close they are to shore. No narration. Run time 0:48.
What is the Spyhop?
What Is The Spyhop? Watch this cool video from explore.org and see the Orca Whales jumping and “hopping” out of the water. This fun move allow them to shoot themselves halfway out of the ocean and then stay still, treading water. This allows them to see if any tasty meals are around, and also to learn their location and where they are in relation to the shore line. Watch and learn all about the Spyhop! No narration. Video is set to music with information written at the bottom of the screen
