Movement of Blood cells (view at the cellular level)
The circulatory system of humans is closed, meaning that blood is enclosed by blood vessels. This image is that of an open system, meaning the blood moves freely throughout the body. In both systems, blood is pumped to the tissues of the body and then nutrients diffuse into the cells of those tissues.
SAMPEX - A Synoptic View of Earths Electron Radiation Belts: South Pole Energetic Fluxes from PET
The Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer, SAMPEX, measures fluxes of energetic particles from the sun, the Earths magnetosphere, and cosmic ray sources over a broad range of energies. The four instruments aboard SAMPEX are the Low-Energy Ion Analyzer (LEICA), The Heavy Ion Large Telescope (HILT), The Mass Spectrometer Telescope (MAST), and the Proton-Electron Telescope (PET).

Take a class in Toy Design
Toy Product Design is a new class that is a fun introduction to product design. At the start of the course, students are grouped into four teams. Each team brainstorms lots of ideas and then narrows those to a handful to present in the form of poster sketches. These prototypes are presented at Creative Kid Stuff headquarters to designers, marketers, and engineers. With their feedback, the four teams each pick one concept and has a month to make a polished prototype for the final "Playsentations"
