Amusement Park Physics 101 Killer Open Courseware Projects from Around the World: Ivy League and Beyond How will you obtain a higher education? Some major headlines in 2009 already play on the fears about how to pay for a higher education. Press releases from colleges want to quell those fears about monies for college, and politicians have introduced legislation to make education more affordable. The desire to lure students into college is strong across the globe, and many colleges have learned that education no longer belongs to a select few who can afford a degree. “Flat education,” or education provided for the masses via the Internet has become commonplace over the past few years, and open courseware projects abound on the Web.

Practical Physics This website is for teachers of physics in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Many have links to carefully selected further reading and all include information and guidance for technicians. Physics is a practical science. 125 Great Science Videos: From Astronomy to Physics & Psychology Astronomy & Space Travel A Brief, Wondrous Tour of Earth (From Outer Space) – Video – Recorded from August to October, 2011 at the International Space Station, this HD footage offers a brilliant tour of our planet and stunning views of the aurora borealis.A Universe from Nothing – Video – In 53 minutes, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss answers some big enchilada questions, including how the universe came from nothing.A Year of the Moon in 2.5 Minutes – Video – The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting the moon for over a year.

English Literature The English Literature Major is designed to cultivate a broad knowledge of the evolution of cultural and literary expression in English as well as an ability to critically engage with texts of all media. In pursuit of these goals, you will be required to take ENGL101 through ENGL301, a progression that will afford you a working knowledge of the general evolution of literature in English from its Medieval origins to the present. The core program will also familiarize you with the tools and terminology that English Literature scholars have devised in order to facilitate the study and discussion of literature, from Marxist literary theory to poetry scansion techniques. You will also be required to take four 400-level electives. These specialized electives have been arranged according to period, such that if you find the literature of the Renaissance particularly engaging, you can focus your studies by taking an additional course on that period.

Hydroelectricity Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy, accounting for 16 percent of global electricity generation – 3,427 terawatt-hours of electricity production in 2010,[1] and is expected to increase about 3.1% each year for the next 25 years. Hydropower is produced in 150 countries, with the Asia-Pacific region generating 32 percent of global hydropower in 2010.

Ibasei's Cappa provides hydroelectricity on a small scale The Cappa compact hydropower generator can deliver 250 W of electricity Image Gallery (4 images) Despite being the most widely used form of renewable energy worldwide, hydroelectricity is generally reserved for large-scale commercial installations built around massive dams. Japanese company Ibasei has shrunk things down and removed the need to build a dam with its Cappa compact hydropower generator – a system that's designed to be installed along a river or waterway. The basic design of the Cappa is nothing new – blades rotate as the water flows through the unit, which drives a turbine to generate electricity. However, the unit is encased in a special diffuser that is designed to increase the velocity of the water at the point where it passes over the blades, thereby increasing the unit’s electrical output.
