Building a Water Clock. Bernard Gitton's Time-Flow clock Luna04 / CC-BY-SA-3.0 , via Wikimedia Commons Purpose To build a feedback-controlled system (a water clock) and research ways to improve the system design.
Context This activity should follow student encounters with more simple systems, such as pencils, scissors, etc. In this activity, students will begin to examine more closely the interactions between the parts of a system. Motivation. Build a Plastic Cup Waterwheel. From Wired How-To Wiki I live in an area -- near the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers in upstate New York -- that was once booming with water-driven industry.
Today, hydroelectricity is still an important source of energy. In fact, in place of the old mills on the creek that lies on the other side of our street there's a small hydroelectric generator. This project is a simple way to show kids how water power was used in the old days to turn machinery and power entire factories. Index. OVERVIEW of the GEOLOGY Formed well below the earths surface hundreds of millions of years ago as molten rock from the mantle tried to force its way to the surface (But did not succeed) the rock that is now the mountain formed a huge bubble underground and then cooled slowly, forming granite with its large crystal structure and unusual weathering characteristics (it tends to peel away like an onion which accounts for the rounding of the cliffs and boulders).
The most common minerals in this type of rock that are easy to see are quartz (White and hard), felspar (often cream, light pink or brown) and mica (the black or silver shiny bits). The early miners searched but found no gold on the mountain as gold rarely forms in granite (and then mostly in intrusive dykes that occur later than the host rock formation). Granite is mildly radio active and has a range of uranium family minerals in tiny ammounts spread throughout. Index. Australian Alps National Parks.
Mount Buffalo National Park is one of Victoria’s oldest national parks.
Originally 1152 hectares surrounding the gorge was declared a national park in 1898. The park now covers 31 000 hectares, encompassing the entire sub-alpine plateau and most of the forested foothills down to the surrounding valleys. Giant tors, sheer gorges, waterfalls, snow gum woodlands, masses of wildflowers and stunning views of the alps give the park its unique and spectacular landscape. Enjoying Mount Buffalo National Park During summer the park provides opportunities for walking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, picnicking, sightseeing, bike and horse riding, as well as rockclimbing, abseiling, and hang gliding for the more adventurous.

You might emerge on the other side completely unscathed, but one wrong step can blow up into a legal morass. Just about everyone has, shall we say, appropriated an image from another website at one time or another. Free, use as you please, high-resolution pictures.

Brain-Based Learning. About AWDEP. The Australian Government has provided grant funding to establish Digital Enterprise Programs in 69 communities across Australia.
Thanks to a successful application for funding by Albury City and City of Wodonga, AlburyWodonga is one of the communities that will benefit from the program. The Digital Enterprise Program was established to contribute to the government's vision for Australia as a leading global digital economy by 2020. In particular, this program is designed to contribute to the digital economy goal that states ‘by 2020 Australia will rank in the top five OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries in relation to the percentage of businesses and not-for-profit organisations, using online opportunities to drive productivity improvements, expand their customer base and enable job growth’.
