The goal of this unit is for students to develop a deeper understanding of electromagnetism through inquiry based activities. The first session in the guide is designed to teach students that magnets have an invisible force field known as a magnetic field, and that this field has an effect that can be measured around a magnet using a compass. The second session is designed to teach students that electricity flowing in wires also creates an invisible magnetic field that can also be measured using
The McGovern-Davison Children's Health Center -- or CHC, as it has become known -- serves as the virtual front door for Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center. Since the doors opened in 2000, the beautiful feather mobile and giant fish tank in the lobby have provided a welcoming atmosphere for countless patients, families, and visitors.

My objective is to promote more successful collection, culture, handling, viewing, and classroom investigation of living invertebrates by using the "right tool for the right job." To do this, I present ideas for building and using novel, inexpensive tools (i.e., "gadgets and gizmos") for efficient collection of a wide variety of living invertebrates in the field. I also offer new approaches, materials, and tools for improved handling and viewing of living invertebrates in the laboratory. A centr
Discover and apply principles of genetic inheritance by studying the inheritance patterns of fruit flies in a virtual environment. You will work on a virtual lab bench from which you can order fruit fly mutants from a web merchant, mate the flies in an incubator, anesthetize flies for observation, examine flies under a microscope, and analyze the data from offspring to determine patterns of inheritance. Your task is to propose hypotheses, design experiments, and analyze and interpret the data fr

This 27-page educator guide is a NASA Quest resource about Microbial Ecology and related Astrobiology activities. Students will construct a Winogradsky Column to observe the growth of microbes in a column of mud. During this investigation students will develop a hypothesis, record their observations and results, and form conclusions. They will compare and contrast their methods during the investigation with those of the astrobiologists performing research in the field and the laboratory. It incl
Welcome to the St. Louis Virtual City Project. This Regional History Project utilizes interactive web technologies to explore the history of the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis region. To help you explore St. Louis you will first need to be sure that your computer is equipped with the browser plug-in Cortona. It can be downloaded for free from Parallel Graphics (just follow the on screen directions). The website is best viewed in the most recent version of Internet Explorer browser and at sc

Students studying linguistics and other language sciences for the first time often have misconceptions about what they are about and what they can offer them. They may think that linguists are authorities on what is correct and what is incorrect in a given language. But linguistics is the science of language; it treats language and the ways people use it as phenomena to be studied much as a geologist treats the earth. Linguists want to figure out how language works. They are no more in the busin
The 1970s introduced genetic modification, the 1990s cloning and GM food, and the human genome was sequenced in 2000. Synthetic biology is heralded as the next frontier. But what is synthetic biology and how do we imagine its future directions? What are the implications of this new field for scientists, lawyers, regulators and ethicists? What social and political challenges does it pose and what role will the social sciences, the humanities and the public play in shaping the direction of this ne
View of Pomona College buildings with mountains behind; taken from the yard of Mrs. Squire's house at the corner of Harvard Avenue and Third Street [now Bonita Avenue]. Pearsons Hall is to the left (partially obscured by a house in the foreground). Holmes Hall is in the center of the photograph in the distance. The backside of the Pomona College president's house on College Avenue is on the right (with a small shed behind it). The cupola of Sumner Hall can be seen just over the roof of the p

The return and reintegration of refugees and IDPs is one of the most pressing challenges faced by the international community today. Recently back from a visit to the Great Lakes region, UNHCR's Assistant High Commissioner for Operations will discuss the local settlement of refugees in Tanzania and the return and reintegration of refugees in Burundi. Dr Chaloka Beyani, Legal Advisor to the Secretariat of the International Conference on the Great Lakes, will situate this problem within the Great
A meeting that will present perspectives on the global crisis from leading figures in the field of growth and international development. Presentations will focus on the effects of the global economic downturn on developing countries, how those countries are managing the impact of the crisis, and what more might be done to assist them. This event is being organized in cooperation with the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).
Mary Kaldor is a prolific author who has written widely on a range of key issues over the years ranging from the 'Baroque Arsenal' (1982) a study that challenged the logic of militarism and the belief that more weapons meant more security, through to her groundbreaking 'New Wars'(1999) a book that reveals the new forms that organized violence will take in the 21st century. Mary Kaldor today is one of the most influential and respected alternative voices in the field of applied international poli
