Corn for Fuel?!
In this activity, students examine how to grow plants the most efficiently. They imagine that they are designing a biofuels production facility and need to know how to efficiently grow plants to use in this facility. As a means of solving this design problem, they plan a scientific experiment in which they investigate how a given variable (of their choice) affects plant growth. They then make predictions about the outcomes and record their observations after two weeks regarding the condition of
Students examine collisions between two skateboards with different masses to learn about conservation of momentum in collisions.
The Transcontinental Railroad- Workers Welfare
This is a 2:33 video that explains the causes of the various worker strikes and how the owners of the railroads used force and violence to end the strike. These strikes were the first national strikes and show the importance of the union movement on providing better working conditions for children and others. The impact of the union movement is far reaching.
Program 6: Radix-2, DIT, One Butterfly FFT
This is a Fortran code for a simple Decimation-in-Time, Radix-2, one butterfly Cooley-Tukey FFT preceeded by a bit-reversing scrambler.
The capybara is a large rodent. It is a consumer because it cannot make its own food and must eat other organisms to get energy. Capybaras are herbivores, meaning they eat plants to gain energy.
El Nino: NCEP Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly from September 15, 1996 to September 20, 1997
NCEP sea surface temperature anomaly in the Pacific from September 15, 1996 to September 20, 1997
Plant Cycles: Photosynthesis & Transpiration
What do plants need? Students examine the effects of light and air on green plants, learning the processes of photosynthesis and transpiration. Student teams plant seeds, placing some in sunlight and others in darkness. They make predictions about the outcomes and record ongoing observations of the condition of the stems, leaves and roots. Then, several healthy plants are placed in glass jars with lids overnight. Condensation forms, illustrating the process of transpiration, or the release of mo
Great Zoom out of New York, NY: Central Park
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
Pittsburgh (542) with terrain data, x 3 exaggeration.
Pittsburgh (542) with terrain data, x 3 exaggeration. These scenes show Pittsburgh and the countryside around it as seen by the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) instrument. Pittsburgh is built around the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers which join in the city to form the Ohio River. The terrain of the area is also shown exaggerated by a factor of three to emphasis terrain features such as the Appalachian Mountains and the river valleys. In the countryside image, north is up, the Mo

SeaWiFS: El Nino on a Globe
By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon. Until now, scientists have only had a continuous record of photosynthesis on land. But following three years of continual data collected by the SeaWiFS instrument, NASA has gathered the first record of photosynthetic productivity in
