Fabrizio Scarpa : "Cellular structures for morphing wings and reflectors" In recent years the aerospace R&D community has witnessed a significant surge in research activities connected to morphing aerospace structures. This seminar describes the results from modelling and testing prototypes of wingboxes and satellite antenna reflectors made with cellular configurations. The cellular structures used (honeycombs, truss-cores, lattices) show negative and zero Poisson’s ratio behaviours, and are made from polimeric, shape memory alloy and embedded piezoelectr

Acids and Bases: Cabbage Juice Indicator
The substances that chemists collectively call acids and bases come in many different forms. Despite this variety, all acids tend to react with other substances in much the same way. Reactions involving bases also share many common characteristics with one another. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members demonstrate how to use cabbage juice to determine whether a solution is acidic or basic. (1:34)
Dew in the Morning -Why it Happens
This cartoon uses simple illustrations and examples to help explain what morning dew is. Some key vocabulary words include: dense, condensation, and dew drops. (01:41)
A Simple Fiber-Optic Communications System
In this video from the ICT Center, learn how rise-time analysis is performed to determine the maximum data rate of a fiber optic communications system. Animations and diagrams show how a transmitter, fiber, and receiver work together to transfer information and how component rise times and fiber dispersion contribute to total rise time. (5:30)

Bill Kurtis: Kansas Land is Magical
The 34th U.S. state, Kansas was once seen as the country's agricultural heartland because of its vast flat land. In this States video clip Bill Kurtis on Kansas, Bill Kurtis tells us why Kansas is the beginning of the West and about the “twang” of Kansas dialect. (2:18)

Duke Kidney Transplant Paired Donation Program
For those seeking a kidney transplant, finding a living donor who matches your need can be difficult. Watch how three families were impacted by the Duke Kidney Paired Donation Program. The program assists donor and recipient pairs who are incompatible or poorly matched in finding another donor and recipient pair with whom they can exchange kidneys to enable better matching, allowing a transplant to take place.
