This video briefly explains different categories of memory. Some types covered are iconic, echoic, long-term memory, semantic memory, episodic memory, procedural memory, sensory memories, episodic memories, and procedural memories. The information is good and would make a great introduction for further study. (06:00)
Building and Testing Bicycle Wheels
Want your students to remember math or science class the next time they ride a bike? Give them an inside look at what it takes to build and test durable, high-tech bike wheels. In the assembly room, spokes are plucked like guitar strings to ensure equal tension and a balanced load.In a test room, a custom machine is subjecting a wheel to 4.4 million bumps! Behind the scenes, high performance bikes are all about science,technology, engineering and math (STEM). A good video for career day too.<

Meet Our Scientist: Mark Torchin, Panama Parasite P.I.
Mark Torchin, a marine ecologist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama, talks about how he studies the parasites of invasive marine animals such as snails.
Living and working on the Panama Canal, an epicenter of marine shipping, brings a massive influx and variety of invasive marine species that researchers like Mark can study and understand.
Much of Mark's research focuses on biological invasions and the dynamics between the host, the parasites and the surr

Making Designs Come Alive: Using Physically Based Modeling Techniques in Space Layout Planning
This paper introduces the concept of responsive design. It elaborates this concept as an approach to free form, adaptable, automated design applying physically based modeling techniques to the design process. Our approach attempts to bridge the gap between totally automated design and the free form brainstorming designers normally employ. We do this by automating the initial placement and sizing of design elements, with an interactive engine that appears alive and highly responsive. We present a
