History of Remote Sensing: Landsat's Thematic Mapper (TM)
The Landsat Thematic Mapper is a multispectral imaging sensor added to Landsats 4 and later. This site uses text, photographs, tables, and diagrams to explain how the Thematic Mapper works and the advantages of sensing radiation in wavelengths other than those normally visible to the human eye. It is part of NASA's Remote Sensing Tutorial and links to the rest of the tutorial are provided.
Rocket Me into Space
One of the exciting challenges for engineers is the idea of exploration. This lesson looks more closely at Spaceman Rohan, Spacewoman Tess, their daughter Maya, and their challenges with getting to space, setting up satellites, and exploring uncharted waters via a canoe. This lesson reinforces rockets as a vehicle that helps us explore outside the Earth's atmosphere (i.e., to move without air) by using the principles of Newton's third law of motion. Also, the ideas of thrust, control and weight

Sid the Science Kid-"I'm Gonna Be a Big Rain Cloud" Song
One little cloud was dreaming out loud and this was her plan. I've got big dreams. I'm gonna make you proud. I'm gonna grow, and grow, and grow and til I am a big rain cloud. Key vocabulary words include water vapor and precipitation. This is a wonderful resource to build background knowledge for our young students and would work well in conjunction with non-fiction texts on types of weather and/or water cycle. (1:34)
Turing Award Winners Panel Discussion
Winners of the A.M.Turing Award, the Nobel Prize of computing, describe their singular contributions to the field, and their worksâ€™ impact. They also find time to discuss the current and future state of computer science.

4.2 Simplicity and complexity As we have already discovered, the concept of â€˜simplicityâ€™ is not a simple matter. We saw earlier in the unit that the simplicity of folk-song is not the same as classical simplicity, though both influenced the taste of Lieder writers. â€˜HeidenrÃ¶sleinâ€™ and â€˜Wandrers Nachtliedâ€™ are simple in quite different ways, both in their poetry and in their music. Many other songs by Schubert are much longer, much more complex, and treat the poetry with much greater freedom. This aspect of Sc

Great Zoom out from Kodak Theater with spin (Los Angeles, CA)
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
Shallow & Deep Foundations
Students investigate the critical nature of foundations as they learn differences between shallow and deep foundations, including the concepts of bearing pressure and settlement. Using models representing a shallow foundation and a deep pile foundation, they test, see and feel the effects in a cardboard box test bed composed of layers of pebbles, soil and sand. They also make bearing pressure calculations and recommendations for which type of foundations to use in various engineering scenarios.

A Visit to Peek Frean and Co.'s Biscuit Works (1906) - extract
Without Peek Frean & Co. we would never have had the Garibaldi, the Bourbon or the Twiglet. The Clements Road factory gave Bermondsey the pet name 'Biscuit Town' until its closure in 1989. This extract is from a film by Cricks & Sharp, commissioned by the company to mark its 50th anniversary, and is now considered one of the earliest British documentaries. All titles on the BFI Films channel are preserved in the vast collections of the BFI National Archive. To find out more about the Archive vi
