Molecules in Liquid
As molecules in a solid get hotter, they vibrate faster and faster and eventually slip out of their lattice-work pattern. When this occurs, the substance melts, changing from a solid to a liquid state. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's. The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way. Good for students of any elementary school level.

Dating Lava Flows on Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii
For hundreds of thousands of years, lava flows have created intricate patterns on the slopes of Hawaiʻi's Mauna Loa volcano. Until the mid-1970s, it was impossible to know when each of the flows occurred. However, as this video segment adapted from NOVA describes, scientists are now using tiny artifacts of life encased in hardened lava flows to piece together the mountain's complex geological and biological history. Closed captioning included. Run time 04:36.
Mount Pinatubo: The Aftermath of a Volcanic Eruption
The eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991 was the largest volcanic eruption in 80 years. The explosive eruption deposited tons of ash on the towns and villages near the volcano's base. Even more devastating than the eruption, however, were the devastating flows of water and debris that resulted when monsoon rains mixed with the accumulated volcanic ash. This video segment adapted from NOVA depicts some of the impact of these events on the communities surrounding the volcano. Closed captioning.

Evaluation of 'Advanced Database Management' module
This paper focuses on a discussion on the approach taken in analysing evaluation design for a specific faculty module on enterprise education
Cosmo Craige is a 10 year-old African Grey parrot and she and her human companion Betty Jean Craige have educated and entertained hundreds of school-aged children about the ability of Cosmo and other parrots to speak meaningfully. They talk with the students about the intelligence, which we humans have underestimated, of all kinds of animals. Most importantly, they teach about the value of relationships between humans and animals.

Meet the Paleontologists
Meet the paleontologists who helped create the Museum's new exhibition, "Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs," and learn about the latest cutting-edge technology that researchers are using to study pterosaurs, the flying reptiles that lived from about 220 and 66 million years ago. Mark Norell, curator in the Museum's Division of Paleontology, and Alexander Kellner, Associate Professor at the Museu Nacional in Brazil, have led expeditions to the most remote areas of the planet. And yet, d
