The Stuff of Genius: Copier
Before the invention of the modern copier, companies across the world
depended on time-consuming -- and, often, incorrect -- duplication
methods. This 2:20 video explains how the copier was invented and also how the inventor worked hard to develop this invention.
This lesson introduces students to the space environment. It covers the major differences between the environment on Earth and that of outer space and the engineering challenges that arise because of these discrepancies. In order to prepare students for the upcoming lessons on the human body, this lesson challenges them to think about how their bodies would change and adapt in the unique environment of space.
Professional Learning Communities: Concepts in Action in a Principal Preparation Program, an Element
The Professional Learning Community model has moved to the forefront in the field of education as one of the most effective frameworks to improve student achievement and overall school success. “When a school or district functions as a professional learning community (PLC), educators within the organization embrace high levels of learning for all students as both the reason the organization exists and the fundamental responsibility of those who work within it” (Dufour, 2006, p. 3). The resea
This patient education program discusses glaucoma including the anatomy of the eye, types of glaucoma, symptoms and risks, diagnosis, treatment options, and surgery. This resource is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
An Arm and A Leg
Students will design and build a prototype of an artificial limb using a simple syringe system as an introduction to bioengineering. Students will determine which substance water (liquid) or air (gas) will make the appendage more efficient.

Multiple Coin Toss Model
The EJS Multiple Coin Toss model displays the result of the flipping of N coins. The result of each set of coin flips is shown by the image of the pennies on the screen and the complete results of the tossing experiment is shown on a graph of the cumulative probability of heads. The number of coins flipped, N, and change the "fairness" of the coin by setting the probability of a "heads" result, p, can be set via text boxes.
Pulley'ing Your Own Weight
Using common materials (spools, string, soap), students learn how a pulley can be used to easily change the direction of a force, making the moving of large objects easier. They see the difference between fixed and movable pulleys, and the mechanical advantage gained with multiple/combined pulleys. They also learn the many ways engineers use pulleys for everyday purposes.
May the Magnetic Force be with You
This lesson begins with a demonstration of the deflection of an electron beam. Students then review their knowledge of the cross product and the right hand rule with sample problems. After which, students study the magnetic force on a charged particle as compared to the electric force. The following lecture material covers the motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field with respect to the direction of the field. Finally, students apply these concepts to understand the magnetic force on a c
Atoms: Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons - by StudyJams
An atom is a tiny particle in matter, and atoms are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Some matter, like your body or your book, is made of lots of different kinds of atoms, but elements are made up of only one kind of atom. Learn more about atoms with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

Construct And Test Roofs for Different Climates
We design and create objects to make our lives easier and more comfortable. The houses in which we live are an excellent example of this. Depending on your local climate, the features of your house will be different to satisfy your particular needs; protection from hot, cold, windy, and/or rainy weather. Students should be aware of the different types of roofs found on various houses in different environments throughout the world. This can be done with books and photos. Models of the houses will
President Lambert's charge to the Class of 2011
Elon University President Leo M. Lambert delivers the charge to the Class of 2011 at Commencement on May 21, 2011
This three minute video notes that one-third of diabetics don’t know that they have the condition and what are the symptoms. Important considerations are family history of this disease, being overweight, extra thirst, weight loss quickly, blurry vision, and others that need to be discussed with all students. There are some sexual related problems related in this video so a review of the content is recommended.
