Learn about bridge designs and their pros and cons. The introduction page provides students with information about arch bridges, beam bridges, suspension bridges, and cable-stayed bridges. After reading about the bridges, there is a short matching activity (matching the ideal bridges with four specific locations). This website requires Shockwave, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): bridges (8), structures (24)

In the Classroom

This web activity would be perfect on an interactive whiteboard. Make this activity a class project. Ask the class to reach consensus on their choices before entering them--and watch them get into some heated arguments! As you continue your study of structures and stresses, ask your students to work with a partner to collect online images of different bridge types into a PowerPoint presentation (with URL citations for the images, of course) explaining the types and their advantages. Then build some!

The challenge for this hands-on virtual engineering experiment is to design a parachute for a safe landing on the planet Mars. Students must consider volume, drag, strength, and stability as they create their parachute. There are detailed instructions provided on the main page of the activity. This website is interactive and very cool! The interactive activities require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): volume (45)

In the Classroom

Students will love the challenge of creating a safe parachute for the astronauts. Try an interactive whiteboard or partner-shared computers and get ready for an exciting journey. If you use the whiteboard, be sure to ask students to write their lab observations and record data as they experiment. the class can vote on what to try next. As the interactive reminds you, there are "costs" to wasteful experimenting. Perhaps you want to limit the number of class attempts allowed for everyone to receive a high grade. Then watch the debate!

TeachersFirst is proud to offer this chance to experience the life of a physics researcher through the eyes and dry humor of our own physics blogger, Andy. As an undergraduate not long out of the high school physics lab, Andy brings us into the "real world" of scientific research but can still connect with the middle or high school student who may be wondering, "When am I ever gunna use this stuff?" Spending the summer of 2007 at Los Alamos National Labs, Andy shares his day-to-day discoveries and gives your students a chance to respond to the blog, perhaps connecting to a "real" scientist for the first time.

In the Classroom

Share this resource with your science students or gifted classes on your teacher web page and encourage them to follow it throughout the summer. Andy promises to keep all of us up to date and, within time constraints, respond to meaningful comments.

A companion to a PBS series on the impact of technology on culture, this site links to discussions of three separate innovations: the telephone, the television and the New York City subway. There is also a nice technology time line that shows students the explosion of inventions beginning in the 19th century. Teachers' guides within each section provide lesson plan ideas.

tag(s): evolution (100), industrial revolution (25), vision (87)

In the Classroom

The Flash-enabled technology timeline would be a great illustration of the impact of the industrial revolution on American culture. Use this on an interactive whiteboard or projector as you ask students to imagine their worlds without these inventions and predict the next ground breaking technology. While the section on the New York City subway system may seem to be less important, students might be encouraged to think about the relative failure of public transportation in the US and how that impacts the current oil crisis.

This site accompanies a PBS episode on the sinking of the Andrea Doria. Following a "crime scene investigation" model, the episode looks at the controversy behind the collision between the Doria and the Stockholm in 1956, and efforts to examine the wreck off the coast of New England. The site's usefulness is not limited to history teachers, however! There is a significant portion devoted to the science of deep sea diving.

In the Classroom

Use the excellent flash-enabled interactive "Diving Deep" to illustrate the physical properties of deep-sea diving that can endanger the lives of divers. There is also a detailed lesson plan in the Teacher Toolbox section that offers hands-on activities for exploring gas laws that affect divers, and printable handouts that provide questions on the lessons.

As you study the decades of the 20th century, this site could also be an interesting independent project source for a student interested in the 50's. Gifted students as young as upper elementary might find it a springboard for a comparison of maritime disasters.

The Tech Museum of Innovation's online interactive exhibit about robotics includes fascinating history about robots seen from different angles. A video of Hans Moravec of Carnegie Mellon University discusses the components of a robot. Another section of the display examines ethical questions about the line between humans and robots and includes audio files of scientists responding to the questions (requires Quicktime). Site visitors can also respond.If you think you can't be creative with robots, take a look at the robot artists' section and view their creations. Finally, you can try driving your own robot in a virtual simulation. This section requires the Shockwave plugin. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): engineering (125), ethics (16), robotics (25)

In the Classroom

Explore the world of robots as part of a tech ed, gifted, science, or physics class. Be sure to include some of the discussions of ethics and technology as part of your unit. This site would also provide excellent background research for debate topics on technology and ethics. Note: the site was started prior to the 2003 Mars lander problems. Be sure to talk about what we know now about those robots, as well.

This online tool lets you create(or "share" someone else's existing) online calculations/spreadsheets. You can also display instant graphs of the spreadsheet contents. The spreadsheets are displayed in terms that ordinary people can understand and allow you to "plug in" numbers to see instant results. Some of the shared calculators already online are surface area and volume of geometric solids, interest calculators, body mass index, and more sophisticated business functions. The best way to see how the site works is to read through their "tour" then click to browse through the examples, especially the shared ones. Even if you never create your own, this tool is great!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): addition (251), calculators (41), conversions (22), multiplication (227)

In the Classroom

Visit the site and observe how the shared examples work. If you find one you like, you can get the link (try the little disk icon) to go directly to it. If you are feeling more adventurous, try creating one of your own, perhaps for calculating the class average on a test. Your web-savvy students will love this tool for collaborative lab reports or graphs of statistics. For safety's sake do not use any student names or information if you share calcs online.
