Designing Medical Devices for the Ear
Students are introduced to engineering, and more specifically, to biomedical engineering and the engineering design process through a short lecture and interactive, hands-on activity (approximately 30 minutes long), where students design their own medical device for retrieving foreign bodies from the ear canal. In this lesson, the teacher first reviews the basics of ear anatomy then discusses how ear infections occur and how they are treated. Following antibiotic treatment, the most common treat
Students learn what causes hurricanes and what engineers do to help protect people from destruction caused by hurricane winds and rain. Research and data collection vessels allow for scientists and engineers to model and predict weather patterns and provide forecasts and storm warnings to the public. Engineers are also involved in the design and building of flood-prevention systems, such as levees and floodwalls. During the 2005 hurricane season, levees failed in the greater New Orleans area, co
Thinking Green: Grow Your Own
This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. Student engagement with agriculture and gardening can not only fill a knowledge gap but also tap in to the affective domain. Students can get involved in community gardens, or collaboratively plan, plant, and cultivate a school garden, indoors, or out.
Downhill Science: Alpine Skiing
The following resource is from Lessonopoly, which has created student activities and lesson plans to support the video series, Science of the Olympic Winter Games, created by NBC Learn and the National Science Foundation. Featuring exclusive footage from NBC Sports and contributions from Olympic athletes and NSF scientists, the series will help teach your students valuable scientific concepts. In this activity, students will explore the physics of alpine skiing by simulating a downhill run and r

The 2012 CLARK KERR LECTURES - Contemporary Trends: Diagnoses and Conditional Predictions
The 2012 CLARK KERR LECTURES Lecture 3: Contemporary Trends: Diagnoses and Conditional Predictions The third lecture turns to the present and future. The lecturer initially sketches a """"perfect storm"""": a confluence of adverse economic, political, and institutional changes that, to many, spell revolutionary transformation if not doom for higher education. In the remainder he assesses the most salient of these changes in the context of what our institutions of higher education have become.
South Island Wren--An Overview
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a South Island Wren. The South Island wren is a small but robust alpine bird with a very short tail, rounded wings, and long legs and toes. While the male’s plumage is a dull green colour above, grey-brown below and yellow on the flanks, the female is more olive-brown in colour. This charming bird has an unusual habit of vigorously bobbing up and down. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to hel

Image and Shape: Two Distinct Approaches
This paper is the result of two researches done at the district of Campeche, Florian?polis, by the Grupo PET/ARQ/UFSC/CAPES. Different aspects and conceptual approaches were used to study the spatial attributes of this district located in the Southern part of Santa Catarina Island. The readings and analysis of two researches were based on graphic pistures builded with the use of Corel 7.0 e AutoCadR14. The first research ?

2.26 Compressible Fluid Dynamics (MIT)
2.26 is a 6-unit Honors-level subject serving as the Mechanical Engineering department's sole course in compressible fluid dynamics. The prerequisites for this course are undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer. The goal of this course is to lay out the fundamental concepts and results for the compressible flow of gases. Topics to be covered include: appropriate conservation laws; propagation of disturbances; isentropic flows; normal shock wave relations, obliq

7.2 Free-free radiation The blackbody spectrum is emitted when thermally emitting matter is optically thick. Optically thin matter can also emit thermal radiation. Whenever a charged particle is accelerated it emits electromagnetic radiation. When the acceleration is due to the electric field of another charged particle the emitted radiation is called free-free emission or bremsstrahlung. (Bremsstrahlung is a German word meaning ‘braking radiation’.) The radiation emitted by an optically thin, ther

Catherine the Great
This 45 minute biography of this famous Russian female leader. It uses actors, interviews and original art to help explain to students her traits and accomplishments. There are a few brief images of the female body that make previewing this video a requirement to make sure it is within the bounds of district policy.
"The Owl" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (poetry reading)
In some versions the fourth line in each stanza is repeated. I find it easier to read this version. Some echo has been added to the sound track. When cats run home and light is come, And dew is cold upon the ground, And the far-off stream is dumb, And the whirring sail goes round, Alone and warming his five wits, The white owl in the belfry sits. When merry milkmaids click the latch, And rarely smells the new-mown hay, And the cock hath sung beneath the thatch Twice or thrice his roundelay

Full accreditation followed in 1931 and in 1948 SPC became a public college. In June 2001, SPJC officially became St. Petersburg College when Florida's governor signed legislation making it the first community college in Florid
An advertisement is presented before the video. This two-minute video is about the Ghana empire, located in West Africa. It tells how it became a wealthy empire because they were in the center of the caravan routes and taxed other Muslims, during the gold-salt trade. The people of Ghana didn't want to adopt the Muslim religion, but later on, the desert Arabs invaded their territory and forced them to practice the Muslim religion, or else they would be killed.
