Trash to Treasure!
Student teams use the engineering design process to create a useful product of their choice out of recyclable items and "trash." The class is given a "landfill" of reusable items, such as aluminum cans, cardboard, paper, juice boxes, chip bags, egg cartons, milk cartons, and etc. and each group is allowed a limited amount of bonding materials, such as duct tape, hot glue and string. This activity addresses the importance of reuse and encourages students to look at ways they can reuse items they
4 Fossil fuels
Energy resources are essential for any society, be it one dependent on subsistence farming or an industrialised country. There are many different sources of energy, some well-known such as coal or petroleum, others less so, such as tides or the heat inside the Earth. Is nuclear power a salvation or a nightmare? This unit provides background information to each resource, so that you can assess them for yourself.

Lassueur Piccardi Graham Little Syndrome.
A rare disease in which cicatricial (scarring) alopecia of the scalp is associated with widespread keratosis pilaris particularly in the axillae and pubic area where scarring does not usually occur. The scarring in the scalp may be clinically indistinguishable from the end stage of other forms of scarring hair loss.

Science, Non-Science, and Nonsense: From Aliens to Creationism
Lawrence M. Krauss Foundation Professor, School of Earth and Space Exploration and Department of Physics, Arizona State University gives a public lecture. The distinction between science and fiction and between sense and nonsense has become blurred in popular discourse, most recently manifesting itself around the teaching of intelligent design in public schools. In this lecture Professor Krauss uses examples from government and the media to explore what science is, and what it is not. The lectur

5.3 Mitochondrial adaptations
Hibernation is an ingenious adaptation that some animals employ to survive difficult conditions in winter. This unit examines the differences between hibernation and torpor, and discusses the characteristic signs of hibernation behaviour. It explores the triggers that bring on hibernation, and whether internal signals or external season cues are predominant. It also examines the physiological adaptations that occur in hibernating animals. This unit builds on and develops ideas introduced in the
