The Richard Feynman Trilogy: The Physicist Captured in Three Films | Open Culture - 2 views

  •  
    "Between 1981 and 1993, documentary producer Christopher Sykes shot three films and one TV series dedicated to the charismatic, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman (1918-1988). We have presented these documentaries here individually before (some several years ago), but never brought them together."

littleBits - 6 views

  •  
    littleBits consists of tiny circuit-boards with simple, unique functions engineered to snap together with magnets. No soldering, no wiring, no programming, just snap and play. Each bit has a simple, unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap to make larger circuits. Just as LEGOs™ allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive, blocks that make creating with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together.

NIDA for Teens: The Science Behind Drug Abuse - 3 views

  •  
    The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), created this Web site to educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse. NIDA enlisted the help of teens in developing the site to ensure that the content addresses appropriate questions and timely concerns. Recognizing that teens want to be treated as equals, NIDA scientists were careful not to preach about the dangers of drug use. Rather, the site delivers science-based facts about how drugs affect the brain and body so that kids will be armed with better information to make healthy decisions. Elements such as animated illustrations, quizzes, and games are used throughout the site to clarify concepts, test the visitor's knowledge, and make learning fun through interaction.

Understanding Alcohol: Investigations into Biology and Behavior - 2 views

  •  
    Understanding Alcohol: Investigations into Biology and Behavior-developed with the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)-is a creative, inquiry-based instruction program designed to promote active learning and stimulate student interest in medical topics. This curriculum supplement aims to help students develop the following major goals associated with scientific literacy: to experience the process of scientific inquiry and develop an enhanced understanding of the nature and methods of science; andto appreciate the role of science in society and the relationship between basic science and human health.

Mouse Party - Brain Reaction to Drugs Interactive - 1 views

  •  
    The simplified mechanisms of drug action presented here are just a small part of the story. When drugs enter the body they elicit very complex effects in many different regions of the brain. Often they interact with many different types of neurotransmitters and may bind with a variety of receptor types in a variety of different locations. For example, THC in marijuana can bind with cannabinoid receptors located on the presynaptic and/or postsynaptic cell in a synapse.  Where applicable, this presentation primarily depicts how drugs interact with dopamine neurotransmitters because this website focuses on the brain's reward pathway. Mouse Party is designed to provide a small glimpse into the chemical interactions at the synaptic level that cause the drug user to feel 'high'.

Richard Feynman on Beauty | Open Culture - 8 views

  • Richard Feynman on Beauty

    After dismissing the popular notion that scientists are unable to truly appreciate beauty in nature, physicist Richard Feynman (1918 – 1988) explains what a scientist really is and does. Here are some of the most memorable lines from this beautiful mix of Feynman quotes and (mostly) BBC and NASA footage:

  •  
    Probably worth 5 mins of you time. Wow!

Computer Science Unplugged - 4 views

  •  
    CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around. The activities introduce students to underlying concepts such as binary numbers, algorithms and data compression, separated from the distractions and technical details we usually see with computers. CS Unplugged is suitable for people of all ages, from elementary school to seniors, and from many countries and backgrounds. Unplugged has been used around the world for over fifteen years, in classrooms, science centers, homes, and even for holiday events in a park!

ASSISTments - 11 views

  •  
    ASSISTments is a free web-based platform that allows teachers to write individual ASSISTments (composed of questions and associated hints, solutions, web-based videos, etc.). The word "ASSISTment" blends tutoring "assistance" with "assessment" reporting to teachers. It supports all subjects (i.e.,Math, English etc.) and due to federal grants, has a huge repository of math content. ASSISTments is not just a math tutoring system. Its an "eco-system" of researcher, schools, parents, funders, and state partners, working together to help students. Each of the partners get something out of it, and each contributes something.
