Bend, Twist and Break: Breaking Glass
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that researchers learn about the scientific basis for failure of materials by running experiments in the lab, using a simple shape like a glass rod to calculate the strength of material and predict its failure. The same tests can be done at the micro and nano scale using tiny specimens. Students can run a similar experiment with a bar of chocolate.

Building a testbed for mini quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicle with protective shroud
Potential applications of small rotorcraft unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) range from military missions to exploration of the planet Mars (Patrick C. O’Brien, 2003). Tasks such as exploration of unknown territories, formation flying, intelligence gathering etc, require UAV to be capable of flying very close to other flying or steady objects. Exposed rotary wings limit rotorcraft vehicle’s capability to fly in proximity of other objects. In some applications, such as rescue operation, urban w

Introduction

In this course you will find out that the sensation of pain is caused by the release of a chemical called prostaglandin that stimulates the nerve endings and sends an electrical message to the brain. Inhibiting the formation of prostaglandin reduces pain and we will see, by looking at the specific shape of the molecules involved, how aspirin can so inhibit the formation of prostaglandin. To make the most of the material of this course you will need to use an organic molecular modelling kit su

In his State of the Union Address on January 28, 2003, President Bush made a case for further fuel cell development. Current efforts in this area have not determined how to efficiently produce or extract hydrogen for the cells. In hopes of solving this problem, Bush proposed a $1.2 billion FreedomFUEL initiative. FreedomFUEL is closely related to the FreedomCAR program, which has its homepage at the second site. News releases and fact sheets are available, as well as overviews of fuel cells and

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute: The Cancer Genome Project
Supported by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the Cancer Genome Project (CGP) "is using the human genome sequence and high throughput mutation detection techniques to identify somatically acquired sequence variants/mutations and hence identify genes critical in the development of human cancers. This initiative will ultimately provide the paradigm for the detection of germline mutations in non-neoplastic human genetic diseases through genome-wide mutation detection approaches."

Digestive System
The digestive system is amazing: it takes the foods we eat and breaks them into smaller components that our body can use for energy, cell repair and growth. This lesson introduces students to the main parts of the digestive system and how they interact. In addition, students learn about some of the challenges astronauts face when trying to eat in outer space. Engineering helps figure out how to deal with such challenges.
