Is this the way of the future? Government Technology Magazine visited three Chicago schools using iPads in the classroom to find out. (4:02)
Aquatic Animal Appendages - Limbs
Several aquatic animals have appendages, such as limbs, that support their body while they spend time on ground. They are usually small because they spend most of their time in the water.
By making and testing simple balloon rockets, students acquire a basic understanding of Newton's third law of motion as it applies to rockets. Using balloons, string, straws and tape, they see how rockets are propelled by expelling gases, and test their rockets in horizontal and incline conditions. They also learn about the many types of engineers who design rockets and spacecraft.
Greek taxi drivers strike
Jul.18 - Tourists wait out delays in Greece's capital as taxi drivers block highways and the city of Piraeus to protest law making it easier to get taxi licenses. Jessica Gray reports.
Starfall's excellent interactive treatment given to the letter "H h”, with emphasis on the sound of the letter. Several examples and very clear pronunciation.

What is Heat?
"In Physics, heat is not in inside an object, but heat is the transfer of energy from one object to another so when you touch an object and it feels hot, what you're feeling is the heat you're feeling the energy being transferred from that hot object to your hand." (01:09)
Muni bonds in demand despite debt worries
July 28 - States have successfully sold bonds to the market despite concerns that these states' credit-worthiness may be deteriorating A downgrade of U.S. federal debt could have a ripple effect on municipalities.
Non Equilibrium Thermodynamics
The course describes in a simple and practical way what non-equilibrium thermodynamics is and how it can contribute to engineering fields. It explains how to derive proper equations of transport from the second law of thermodynamics or the entropy production. The obtained equations are frequently more precise than used so far, and can be used to understand the waste of energy resources in central process units in the industry. The entropy balance is used to define the energy efficiency in energy
Stephenson didn't want to compromise PM
July 19 - Stephenson provides a further explanation to his resignation statement, saying he "didn't want to compromise the Prime Minister in any way by revealing or discussing a potential suspect." Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
