Design a Net-Zero Energy Classroom
Students create a concept design of their very own net-zero energy classroom by pasting renewable energy and energy-efficiency items into and around a pretend classroom on a sheet of paper. They will learn how these items (such as solar panels, efficient lights, computers, energy meters, etc.) interact to create a learning environment that produces as much energy as it uses.
El Nino: SST Anomaly and SSH Anomaly from September 1996 to September 1997 (Pan from Front to Side V
Sea surface height anomaly is presented as topography and sea surface temperature anomaly as color. A similar visualization (animation 139) presents this same data without the pan from the front to the side.

An animation of sea surface temperature and height anomalies in the Pacific for January 1997 through July 1998 from NOAA AVHRR and TOPEX Poseidon
Cougars are mammals. As a guide, mammals generally leave prints that are paw-shaped and show four or five toes.
Build a Steroid
In this interactive activity from NOVA, learn about the molecular structure of steroids. See the intermediate molecules that are part of the pathway for synthesizing cortisone from diosgenin.
Students are introduced to chemical engineering and learn about its many different applications. They are provided with a basic introduction to matter and its different properties and states. An associated hands-on activity gives students a chance to test their knowledge of the states of matter and how to make observations using their five senses: touch, smell, sound, sight and taste.
Total Ozone over Antarctica from TOMS: Jul 1, 1998 through Oct 1, 1998 (Rotation to Pole)
Total ozone over Antarctica for the period July 1, 1998 through October 1, 1998 as measured by Earth Probe TOMS. Dark blue represents regions of low ozone and red represents regions of high ozone.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 3 Month Old: Normal: Motor - Lower Extremity Tone
Tone in the lower extremities is present with the appropriate resistance to passive range of motion. The tight flexor tone of the newborn is no longer present. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
La construcción de la Soberanía Alimentaria
Esta asignatura tiene la intención de profundizar en diversos elementos constructivos y en generar aportes reflexivos teórico-prácticos sobre la Soberanía Alimentaria y sus diversas propuestas concretas.
Energy Systems Activity
Posters are provided for several different energy conversion systems. The students are provided with cards that give the name and a description of each of the components in the energy system. They have to match these with the figures on the diagram. Since the groups look at different systems, they must also describe their results with the class to share their knowledge.

Colour bathing in the Luminarium
The Luminarium's back, and you're invited to a sneak peek. This amazing structure, made by Architects of Air is something to see. It's open to the public until Sunday 5 June 2011.
Desarrollo Económico (2011)
La asignatura se plantea como una introducción a la Economía del Desarrollo, para estudiantes del último curso del Grado en Economía u otras materias interesados en obtener una aproximación a los problemas y dilemas de política económica y políticas públicas que afrontan los países subdesarrollados y en desarrollo, desde la propia perspectiva de estos países en proceso de profundas transformaciones económicas, institucionales y sociales. Para abordar este objetivo, se aplican tres en

Climate change; a contemporary and geological perspective
The files in this archive are the core teaching component of the Masters-level module ‘Global Climate Cycles’ providing a “hands-on” approach to understanding the keyconcepts, numerical methods, and interpretation of climate related research across the geological past (focussing on the Cenozoic). The module comprises 22 Powerpoint lectures and a number of practicals. It is delivered as a short intensive (3 week) course to an audience of MSc and Integrated masters students. The init
Mental Health: Depression
Clinical depression is a serious illness which leads to persistent low mood, loss of energy and motivation, and a reduced ability to feel pleasure. It interferes with day-to-day life by producing negative thoughts and a variety of physical symptoms. Indeed physical symptoms are so important that it is more usual for patients with depression to go to their doctor with a bodily complaint than with a complaint about their mood, so it is vital that doctors understand that depression may be a “hidd
Mental Health: Bipolar
People with Bipolar Disorder (also known as Manic Depression) experience episodes of high and low mood which disrupt their day-to-day life. The pattern of illness is different in each case; people may experience far more episodes of one mood extreme than the other, while the frequency of episodes is also very variable. Even though this is an episodic illness in which people get better between episodes, research is starting to show that sufferers continue to have difficulties when in remission. T
Sensory Exam: Anatomy: Trigeminal Crossing (Localizing Lesions)
The descending trigeminal tract is ipsilateral to its origin and axons from the 2nd order neurons cross at the lower medulla-upper cervical spinal cord level. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing the c
