Three Clouds Activity
The University of Michigan's educational site called Windows to the Universe (last mentioned in the January 6, 1999 Scout Report for Science and Engineering) has added many new lessons to their content. Highlights of these include two activities centered around cloud formation. The Three Clouds uses items such as a jugs and jars, a plastic bag, an aquarium thermometer, and an overhead projector to explore how clouds form and the relationship between the hydrosphere and human activity.

Observe waves as they break on the shore
This animation presents a movie of actual waves breaking on the shore. The accompanying text explains how waves break when energy passes through water in a shallow area. The role of wave energy in erosion is also discussed. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to read the text and connect it with the images.

The CSI Effect: Changing The Face of Science
Until recently, the vast majority of female student images of scientists were versions of white males working alone in laboratory settings (Barman et al. 1997). As a result, the authors asked the question, ?What phenomenon is responsible for the recent change in female students? mental images of scientists?? They suggest that the popular Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) television series and other television programming have greatly influenced how students, especially female students, perceive sc

What is sugar?
This reading, part of a site about the science of cooking, provides general scientific information about sucrose (white table sugar) together with explanations of the science behind some candy-making procedures. The general information includes the chemical formula of sucrose and a ball-and-stick model that illustrates that sucrose is made of fructose and glucose. Regarding candy, the reading describes how heating a sugar solution produces a supersaturated solution. A discussion about common tec

Observe animations of processes that occur along plate boundaries
Here are three animations that reveal how tectonic plates move relative to each other at three types of plate boundaries--transform, convergent, and divergent boundaries. Key features such as the asthenosphere are labeled in the animations. In addition, each animation is equipped with movie control buttons that allow students to play, pause, and move forward and backward through each clip. The animation of a transform boundary shows the North American and Pacific plates sliding past one another,

Density Balloon
What happens to the density of a balloon as it is heated and cooled? This material is part of a series of hands-on science activities designed to arouse student interest. Here students use a hair dryer to heat a helium-filled Mylar balloon, causing it to rise, and let it cool, causing it to drop. The activity includes a description, a list of science process skills and complex reasoning strategies being used, and a compilation of applicable K-12 national science education standards.

Appendix 1 Terminology
Optical-fibre communications became commercially viable in the 1970s and innovation continues today. This unit will illustrate how very high data rates can be transmitted over long distances through optical fibres. You will learn how these fibres are linked, examine the technology used and assess the future direction of this continually developing area of communication.

Kanban Paper Airplanes
Student groups act as assembly lines producing paper airplanes, and learn to apply engineering principles to manufacturing. Their objective is to create as many quality paper airplanes as possible at low cost. The teams see their production numbers increase by applying pull manufacturing and other techniques to increase efficiency, and optimize the production process. Ultimately, hypothetical profit is calculated for each group, to emphasize important aspects of the manufacturing process.

Pointing at Maximum Power for PV
Student teams measure voltage and current in order to determine the power output of a photovoltaic (PV) panel. They vary the resistance in a simple circuit connected to the panel to demonstrate the effects on voltage, current, and power output. After collecting data, they calculate power for each resistance setting, creating a graph of current vs. voltage, and indentifying the maximum power point.
