Great Lakes Science Center Great Lakes Science Center is funded by the citizens of Cuyahoga County through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, grants, funds, and corporate and individual gifts. The museum opened in July 1996. The center's exhibits support STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) with exhibits including the BioMedTech Gallery, advanced energy, science phenomena and space. The Science Center is home to the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, one of only 11 such Visitor Centers in the country. Also, Science Center staff conduct daily science demonstrations. Throughout the school year, the Science Center provides STEM education to field trip students each year with programs and exhibits supporting classroom curriculum by meeting Ohio Revised Standards in Science. It also provides educator professional development programming.
Bach and the mathematics of genius The unmistakeable handwriting of J S Bach What does this formula mean to you? If you’ve studied mathematics, you may recognise it as “Euler’s identity”. As it happens, I’ve studied maths. At length. Morse Code Translator Text to Morse Just type letters, numbers and punctuation into the top box and press the "Translate" button. The program will place the Morse code in the bottom box, inserting a "?" if the character cannot be translated. If you want to translate prosigns, enter them as "<CT>" for instance and tick the "Use prosigns" checkbox in the advanced controls. If you are learning Morse code it is recommended that you hide the dots and dashes output as reading this can slow your learning down.
UCL Hazard Centre Collecting Lava Samples on Kilauea, Hawaii Pyroclastic Flow at Montserrat Novarupta Dome, Katmai National Park, Alaska Dr Hannah Fry: the mathematical models that underpin our sexual success What are the odds? Or how mathematician Peter Backus weighed up his chances of finding love… Just as it’s not possible to calculate precisely how many alien life forms there are, it’s also not possible to calculate exactly how many potential partners you may have. But all the same, being able to estimate quantities that you have no hope of verifying is an important skill for any scientist. It also applies to maths student Peter Backus’s well-publicised quest to see whether there were intelligent, socially advanced women of the same species out there for him to date.
How to Create Easy and Tough to Break Substitution Codes Edit Article Sample Coded ParagraphsCreating Your Own Code Edited by Viral, Maluniu, Lillian May, BR and 9 others Deadly Shadow of Vesuvius by Peter Tyson In a word, yes. But that assertion, like saying we can predict the weather, bears significant caveats. Volcanologists can predict eruptions—if they have a thorough understanding of a volcano's eruptive history, if they can install the proper instrumentation on a volcano well in advance of an eruption, and if they can continuously monitor and adequately interpret data coming from that equipment.
Monte Carlo method Monte Carlo methods (or Monte Carlo experiments) are a broad class of computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results; typically one runs simulations many times over in order to obtain the distribution of an unknown probabilistic entity. They are often used in physical and mathematical problems and are most useful when it is difficult or impossible to obtain a closed-form expression, or infeasible to apply a deterministic algorithm. Monte Carlo methods are mainly used in three distinct problem classes: optimization, numerical integration and generation of draws from a probability distribution. The modern version of the Monte Carlo method was invented in the late 1940s by Stanislaw Ulam, while he was working on nuclear weapons projects at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Immediately after Ulam's breakthrough, John von Neumann understood its importance and programmed the ENIAC computer to carry out Monte Carlo calculations.
More on How to Break Codes (A continuation of the page; Code Breaking) The page on code breaking gave you a few rules about how to break codes. They should have been sufficient to break the code and read the message there.

Projects: Self-Powered Camera We have designed a simple pixel circuit, where the pixel’s photodiode can be used to not only measure the incident light level, but also to convert the incident light into electrical energy. A sensor architecture is developed where, during each image capture cycle, the pixels are used first to record and read out the image and then used to harvest energy and charge the sensor’s power supply. We have conducted several experiments using off-the-shelf discrete components to validate the practical feasibility of our approach. We first developed a single pixel based on our design and used it to physically scan images of scenes.
Ding Dong Bell The sound of bells In East Anglia, as you look across the fens, villages appear almost like little islands (indeed some of them were islands before the fens were drained) and these villages are dominated by big churches with tall towers. In the past people regulated their lives and passed messages by ringing church bells, which could be heard for miles around, telling the time of day, and giving news of births, marriages and deaths in a parish.

SOLAR IMPULSE - Solar Impulse 2 Whereas the prototype uses existing technologies, Solar Impulse HB-SIB requires the development of new materials and new construction methods. Solvay has invented electrolytes that allow the energy density of the batteries to be increased; Bayer MaterialScience is allowing the project to make use of its nanotechnologies; and Décision is using carbon fibers that are lighter in weight than any previously seen. The first wing spar section was delivered to Dübendorf in March 2012. However, during the final test of this central part, the structure of the wing spar succumbed to the load and broke.
