College Of Education

The hands-on nature of the ELEMENTARY (K-3rd) version not only develops a student’s interest in the world around them, but also establishes a solid foundation for all future science courses. During this 30-minute event, Andrea Jones, education specialist for Planetary Science Institute at NASA Goddard, will share how International Observe the Moon Night encourages appreciation and understanding of our moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and science

At the university/college level, using appropriate technology -related projects to spark non-physics majors’ interest in learning physics has been shown to be successful.23 This is a potential opportunity to forge the connection between physics and social science

The period image that came to mind in horror was my childhood memory of newsreel films of vast crowds raising their arms high together shouting out as one, Heil Hitler!” I could see Munich’s citizens cheering Hitler as he proclaimed the Nazi revolution during …

Salvaged Doors Repurposed

I spent some time understanding this, especially coming from a C,NET, vbscript background the logic behind functions in powershell just baffled me. Given that the Arduino seems to have multiple spotlights on it for the month of January 2011, I guess this is as good a time as any to announce that when I finish the Make: Electronics book (this week, I believe) I plan on continuing forward by learning (and blogging) about my experiences with tackling the 50 projects in the Beginning Arduino book (#3 above).

I played with electronics kits from a very early age, and as a teenager spent countless hours soldering and desoldering stuff (mostly the latter even, there was a great little store that sold random circuit boards for cheap that I had a lot of fun taking apart and trying to figure out what the different components were).new electronicsnew electronics

Science Exchange

For women older than 50 who have been confused by conflicting advice on how frequently to get a mammogram, some new science is here to guide their decisions. And each new generation is largely unaware that these alternative beliefs are not grounded in science and have failed to hold up in clinical research time and again. Primarily a press office, the Science Media Centre works closely with press officers from universities, industry, research funders and leading science and engineering institutions. Having witnessed so much commitment, energy and impact, I am proud to be involved with Sense about Science. Help us transform lives through the power of science and science education—inside the Museum, in our schools and beyond—with your support of MSI. Dr. Francine Garrett-Bakelman arrived at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in the middle of the night, ready to get her hands on Scott Kelly’s blood.

The Use of Interactive Technology in the Construction Site

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries by injuries and deaths on the worksite. Every year, thousands of workers die on site. Lack of proper training is usually the cause of accidents and emergency situations.

Fortunately, there’s a solution for it– the use of interactive technology. In fact, according to experts, this could improve the safety and efficiency of the construction site. Let’s take a look at how construction companies can leverage this data to drive their business forward while also improving their SEO marketing strategy and grow their online business!

The Use of Interactive Technology in the Construction Site

In a construction site, it’s essential to plan virtually before creating the project. With the use of interactive technology, it’s possible to create 3D models that would represent the real environment. This can be described as something that’s similar to what you find in video games, where …

Development (3)

He could draw well enough and he had many odd deli- cate thoughts hidden away in his brain that might have expressed themselves through the brush of a painter, but he was always a child and that was a handicap to his worldly development. Reproductive hormones had different effects on the ooplasm (increased presence of endoplasmic reticulum) and the granulosa­-theca cell layer (reduced progression of cell cycle) of zebrafish follicles, predominantly at Stage II. These results deliver insights into the follicle development of fish species with an asynchronous mode of reproduction.development

We revealed that supplementation of PGI2 analog enhanced early development of IVP porcine embryos through activation of AKT cascade. Governance: Strengthening governance mechanisms and practices is essential for the effective delivery of public services and ensuring citizens can hold their governments to account in meeting their development goals. At the national level, we help policy makers reconcile economic, social …
