Greetings, Lots of great reading today. best, <Karen> 1) Kids Page: science education links http://glendale.edu/kids Just wanted to share a website that I have set up for the Science Center at Glendale Community College. The goal for the site is to gather links for online games and activities to support our Youth Science Program. 2) alexander the great ancient greece egypt solar energy Webquest: http://jtubbs.21publish.com/weblogCategory/k8xl9dcmx5ji I actually created a Webquest with a blog last year on solar energy. As involved as kids get in the content with Webquests, they get even more so when you use a blog. You can post each section (e.g. introduction or task) of the quest as a separate entry and then have students complete those sections by posting a comment on them.

AMSER is a non-profit organization and is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). We are a fairly new project, and are constantly adding new resources to our library. (About 200-300 per week) The resources we add to our site come from other online digital collections, staff (area expert) additions, as well as from faculty from around the country. The goal of AMSER is not only to provide a site where instructors and students can find high-quality and authoritative web resources but to provide tools to use these resources as well. We provide a folder system (which allows you to share resources online), bulletin service (to update you with subject specific resources), saved searches, rating and comments systems and more. Because we are new, we would appreciate any feedback for improvements that could be made to the site to make it more useful for you, as well as any suggestions for online material that we could add.

The research, based at the University of Sussex and the London Knowledge Lab, developed the 'HOMEWORK' interactive learning system which enables children between the ages of 5 and 7 to learn and practice Key Stage 1 maths using a range of multimedia technologies - both in the classroom and at home with their family. The researchers found that using HOMEWORK: improved communication between parents, teachers and learners provided continuity between home and school learning made numeracy learning more engaging for many learners increased participation and enjoyment in homework (by parents as well as pupils) and may have increased the effectiveness of time spent learning. 17) Last month, as part of a nationwide crackdown on peer-to-peer sharing of music files on college campuses, the Recording Industry Association of American asked North Carolina State University to forward 23 prelitigation notices to students identified only by their Internet addresses. The university complied, but the director of student legal services, Pam Gerace, has advised students not to identify themselves to the RIAA, according to an article in the campus newspaper, http://media.www.technicianonline.com/media/storage/paper848/news/2007/04/13/News/Riaa-Files.23.Lawsuits.Against.Ncsu-2839394.shtml The Technician. Ms. Gerace warned students that if they reveal their identities to the RIAA, the trade group might then sue the students or give their names to record companies, the newspaper said. An accompanying editorial http://media.www.technicianonline.com/media/storage/paper848/news/2007/04/13/Viewpoint/Fight.The.Riaa-2839422.shtml applauded Ms. Gerace's efforts, saying that if students settle with the RIAA, it will be encouraged to go after more students at the university that it suspects are infringing copyrights. "It is imperative that the university community makes it clear that the RIAA can't shove us around with its deep pockets, and the opposition starts with the accused -- students," the editorial said. --Andrea L. Foster 18)This article will describe an efficient and simple method for decoding ir signals.
http://www.datasingularity.com/html/makeshift_ir.html First thing you want to do is grab your guitar, or whatever you have, and route it from an amp of some sorts to your input on your computer. There is no electronics experience or use necessary. You will need an electric guitar or bass (or some kind of magnetic coil pickup), something to amplify the signal from line level, a sound card with audio input, and some kind of program to record and view the waveform. There are many freeware programs available such as Audacity. Just Google search "Wav editors". 19) ASTEROID FLYBY: http://spaceweather.com Newly discovered asteroid 2007 HA is flying past Earth today about 2.5 million kilometers away. There's no danger of a collision, but it is an interesting flyby: the asteroid is big (300 meters wide), bright (13th to 14th magnitude), and an easy target for large backyard telescopes. A beautiful movie of 2007 HA streaking among the stars of Virgo on April 16th and tonight the asteroid cuts through the Big Dipper where undoubtedly it will be photographed by many astronomers. CRESCENT MOON: A super-slender crescent Moon emerges from the glare of the sun this evening, April 17th, and will proceed over the next few nights to glide by Comet 2P/Encke, the Pleiades star clusterand the planet Venus.
