Shimi: Georgia Tech's New Robotic Musician
Shimi, a musical companion developed by Georgia Tech's Center for Music Technology, recommends songs, dances to the beat and keeps the music pumping based on listener feedback. The smartphone-enabled, one-foot-tall robot is billed as an interactive "musical buddy." For more information, visit http://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=137351 and http://tovbot.com/.

Looking at Learning...Again, Part 1: Workshop 8. The International Picture
This workshop offers an opportunity to investigate various aspects of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), other than the test scores themselves. Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology William Schmidt presents differences in curricula, textbooks, and teaching practices around the world, and a group of community members discuss how the TIMSS results reflect societal and cultural values.,This DVD does have supporting footage in terms of supporting comments for
Introductions to Equations with Uncommon Denominators
In this pre-algreba tutorial video, students will learn how to solve equations with uncommon denominators. This is a great resource to introduce and/or to re-teach this important skill in the classroom. (2:48)

Phenotypic plasticity is the ability of an individual organism to alter its physiology or morphology in response to changes in environmental conditions. This ability is particularly important for the non-motile vascular plants that are unable to move when environmental conditions become unfavourable. This exercise compares morphological and anatomical characteristics of two plant species after 6 weeks of growth under two differing levels of irradiation. Measurements of leaf area, weight, thickne
This workshop will cover major principles and regulations pertinent to working in laboratories with hazardous materials. It will be divided into 45 minute segments dealing with: Radioactive Materials (Staiger); Toxic, Reactive, Carcinogenic, and Teratogenic Chemicals (Carlson); Infectious Agents (Laver); and Fire Safety Concepts and Physical Hazards (Arnston).
Features interviews with McMaster Science students as they finish off their first week of the 2011 Fall Term. Including having some important questions about the Faculty of Science answered; along with talking about getting back into school mode.
In this game, students are shown shapes and must identify line(s) of symmetry in each. Shapes shown include isosceles and scalene triangles, a square, a rectangle, and a trapezoid. ( This link is for an interactive game and may take a few minutes to load.)

Michelle Shearer, the high school chemistry teacher selected as the National Teacher of the Year, recently talked with Ole Miss education majors and gave them some advice on how to be great teachers.
In Sony Picture's upcoming film, "The Amazing Spider-Man," you'll find some real and interesting science behind Peter Parker and his webs. University of Minnesota professor Jim Kakalios served as the science consultant on the new film, giving the filmmakers a factual perspective on the physics of wall crawling and the tensile strength of spider's webbing. In addition, Kakalios contributed an equation called the Decay Rate Algorithm, which is at the center of a few major plot points throughout th
