How to Build a Durable Bridge?
Architect Chris Woodcock tells children why not every bridge can carry the weight of a train. Using some laser cut cardboard props, he shows how important and helpful simple geometric shapes are in the field of bridge design and engineering. His talk introduces students to the workshop entitled "How to Build a Durable Bridge?", which enables children to build their own little bridges made of different materials for different purposes.

NSCC Civil Engineering Tech. 2014 Year 1 Bridge Building Project
We designed a simple truss bridge. The limitations for the project was the bridge could only be min. 760mm span, max 300m high. Groups were required to design and build a "popsicle stick bridge". The bridge must support a specified design load of 22kg while minimizing overdesign in terms of amount of building material used in the construction. Our bridge had a 780mm span, 200mm height and a calculated limit of 27.5kg. After all was said and done, we capped out at 26kg and a total of 71 popsicle sticks.

At the corner of Auschwitz lane and holocaust road. How did no one see this in the blueprints? 49. In the event of an emergency, grab a crowbar or a torch and weld the bars off from around this hydrant. Good luck, you’re going to need it. 48. Duck! These stairs are for the vertically challenged individuals only. 47. We can stay at the second Best Western just to see what the inside of the room. Staying in the corner room non-smoking and by the hallway. 46. Your new office is right this way! 45. These condos come equipped with a workout facility, pool, and every unit comes with a balcony. 44. New improved ATM they are child proof and have the latest technology to keep your money secure. You cannot even see the numbers to punch in your own pin. 43. Child’s ATM, Is there no middle ground? It’s a small world after all. 42. Window access to the stairs. 41. The landscaping is through the roof in this home. 40. The landscaping is off the wall in this one. 39. It is a good thing they stopped there someone could have gotten hurt with no railing on the stairs. 38. Bridge by IKEA. Let’s make sure we read the instructions correctly. I’ll meet you halfway. 37. The menswear is up the stairs. 36. Is this what they mean when they say they have a half-flush toilet? 35. It’s the most fun you’ll never have again. I suppose every playground has a tunnel built on the ground by children leading to China. 34. They must feel walled inside. Think they could try and leave the window open? 33. There is plenty of room to build additional stairs. Seems up to code. 32. Looks about right parking should not be an issue living here. 31. A metaphor for life? Or Dr. Kevorkian kitchen? 30.

You have arrived at your destination; please exit to the left. Is this the airport? 21. Stairs are for wussies! These stairs are even handi-capable. 20. Even the trees do not want to be here. 19. These stairs are spiraling out of control. 18. That is not how it is supposed to work. 17. Do we forget what that symbol means? Apparently you need to bring your own ramp. 16. Nice save, looks right, at least, someone is trying to keep up with the time. 15. Almost as bad as going into the stall and realizing after you go there is not toilet paper. Go ahead reach for it! 14. Narnia’s exit door. This secret room is a truly a secret. 13. Not the most comfortable seat around, but hey there is a beautiful ocean view. 12. Yes, seriously just build the stairs six feet to the left. Someone evidently followed instructions. 11. Ring your little bell now, Mr. Cyclist and see what happens. This appears to be an excellent place to put a large pole on the cement path. 10. It’s not stupid if it works, but how are you supposed to shut the door when you get in there stand on the toilet? 9. How’s that meant to work? Just open the door and jump after climbing over the railing. 8. This belongs in a skate park or a playground to be a slide, very x-treme. 7.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1ThDIrx Watch more How to Do Small Science Projects for Children videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510859-How-to-Demonstrate-Engineering-Principles-Science-Projects Hey, guys. Thinking natural disasters. When you think of natural disasters, there are several that come to mind. You have earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes. But, if I show you marshmallows, and I show you toothpicks, and tell you that we’re about to do an experiment that has to do with natural disasters, you’re gonna be, like, “Wait, what? Marshmallows and toothpicks, and natural disasters? But you.” Yeah, we’re going to do that, and I have a challenge for you. This is your challenge: I need you to get a bag of marshmallows, and you know what I love about this, is if your marshmallows ever get stale, the worst thing to do as a scientist is to throw them out. You can reuse anything, rather than making it into garbage. Now, you have a challenge, and your challenge is this, can you create a multi-story structure, a structure, I think, that people can build? So, you have to make it multi-floored, which means more than one or two, I would say. And, here’s the kick, after you build it, it has to be standing. You’re not allowed to hold it up. It has to be free-standing and stable. Stable on the table. Gravity should not be knocking it down. Then, we’re going to simulate an earthquake. So, after you’re done, and you've made this really awesome structure, made out of only marshmallows and toothpicks, we’re going to shake the table, and we’re going to make an earthquake. And you can be, like, “Earthquake.” Just tremble and vibrate. And if your structure is still standing after 30 seconds of your simulated earthquake, you, my dear, are an engineer. And check this out. Your structure’s actually gonna be three-dimensional, and all you need are marshmallows, and all we need are toothpicks. It doesn't matter if they’re the pointy type or the flat type, but, marshmallows are actually cylinder shapes. So, take a marshmallow, take a toothpick, put it through. You kinda have, it looks like you’re going to be working out with it, but you’re not. Now, think about how we can take this, and turn it into a really awesome three-dimensional shape. I’m going to start with this square, and then I’m going to build it up, and turn this square into a cube. Now I’m going to start going higher, just like this. And the beauty about this experiment is, a bag of marshmallows is so inexpensive. Toothpicks, pretty much anybody has toothpicks at home. And, I can learn so many amazing concepts of engineering, building, gravity, center of gravity. You see, you really want this structure to have this amazing centered gravity, so that, If you really think about it, gravity’s always trying to knock you down. In fact, unfortunately, when we get a little older, you start to lean forward, because in your lifetime, your body has done nothing but battle gravity. Which is why our backs arch as we get older. But, now look. I just made a three-dimensional cube. This is exactly one floor high. But the challenge is, could you create multi floors. And, as you get it to go higher and higher, it has to be stable. Stable on the table. You do not want it to be not balanced. The rules are you’re not allowed to hold it up. This is a challenge. And you’re only allowed to use toothpicks; you’re not allowed to get Scotch tape. Okay? That’s the challenge. And, as you can see already, mine is starting to lean. Gravity’s always pulling on it. I’m only gonna make mine three toothpicks high, just because I don’t need to make it bigger. That’s gonna be your challenge. Then, I’m gonna simulate an earthquake, and then, I’m gonna see if my structure is still standing. And, there are other things that you can do, actually, to try to make your structure more stable. Questions like, ‛What happens if you added toothpicks across the squares?’ Something like this. Would this help? Would this help? Science is all about asking questions. Test them, and see what happens. That’s two toothpicks high, and now I’m gonna go three toothpicks high. And by the way, if you don’t have marshmallows, you can actually use gumdrops. My whole point of this is, you can build and learn about structure and engineering and earthquakes, using any materials that you have at home. Uh-oh, gravity. Stop. There we go, it does get a little harder as you get higher. You gotta realize that, and you guys are gonna get frustrated. Starts to look like the leaning Tower of Marshmallows. And, I’m just going to put my toothpicks across the top, and then I’m gonna shake the table, and it’s earthquake time. Will my structure still be standing? Will it fall? I

Math on the Move: Class Activity - Buliding the Bridge
Kim directs teachers in bridge activity where the class creates the physical bridge with their arms. The students can then use the bridge to practice math concepts like multiples, subtraction, division, and fractions. Here, you see them building the bridge. K-8 teachers from the 2014 PIMMS Intel Math Summer Institute get together to learn how to bring movement into their classrooms with teaching artist Kim Thibodeau. Kim took the intensive math content class over the summer alongside the classroom teachers and used that deeper knowledge of core concepts to develop the Math on the Move workshop. Teachers learned the why, when, and how to integrate movement into daily routines and lessons. Then they worked in groups to develop math lesson plans and shared with the cohort. For more information about PIMMS workshops and how to bring them to your district, please visit www.wesleyan.edu/greenstreet and look for professional development opportunities.

How to Build The Foundations of Science for Kids
Next Generation Science Standards are in place to give educators guidelines for what students should gain from science classes. While these guidelines set a standard, they don't provide the curriculum or plans for a fundamental science education. After all, the practical application of teaching science to kids is much different than saying "they need to know x. y, and z." How are you going to teach them those scientific principles in a way that they will understand and latch on to? Bernard Nebel, author of Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding, Elementary Science Education, and Middle School Science Education, presents the basics of a few of his detailed science lesson plans in this video. Learn how you can teach students these elementary lesson plans that will give them the tools they need to understand and practice scientific techniques. These lesson plans are common core aligned and offer a great starting point for fun and engaging science! The curriculum aims to be a great resource for teachers who are searching for the right lesson plans and best way to instill a love and understanding of science in students from kindergarten through 8th grade.

Math on the Move: Class Activity - Bridge Subtraction
Kim directs teachers in bridge activity where the class creates the physical bridge with their arms. The students can then use the bridge to practice math concepts like multiples, subtraction, division, and fractions. Here, you see a subtraction example. K-8 teachers from the 2014 PIMMS Intel Math Summer Institute get together to learn how to bring movement into their classrooms with teaching artist Kim Thibodeau. Kim took the intensive math content class over the summer alongside the classroom teachers and used that deeper knowledge of core concepts to develop the Math on the Move workshop. Teachers learned the why, when, and how to integrate movement into daily routines and lessons. Then they worked in groups to develop math lesson plans and shared with the cohort. For more information about PIMMS workshops and how to bring them to your district, please visit www.wesleyan.edu/greenstreet and look for professional development opportunities.

1 Simple Trick to Become Fluent in English - the JAM Technique - How to Be a Confident Speaker
Learn how to become a FLUENT and CONFIDENT English speaker by spending just 10 minutes a day. This is the JAM technique. For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hi and welcome back. In this video, I’m going to teach you one simple trick that you can use to become a fluent English speaker by spending just 10 minutes a day. The best part about this is that you don’t need a partner – you can do this by yourself. This is a technique that has worked for many of my students and if you do what I tell you in this video, I guarantee that you will become more fluent in English. So what is this trick? Well, it’s a technique known as JAM. Uh, no, not that kind of jam. This is actually a little fluency game based on a show that airs on BBC radio. The reason it’s called JAM is because it’s short for Just A Minute. This game has three stages. So here’s how you play it: You’re going to talk about a topic for one minute. That is, you’re going to give a speech without any preparation. So you just pick a topic - you can either take general topics like sports, hobbies, friends, books etc. or you can choose a question. For example, what is your favorite mode of transport? And once you have a topic, you speak. Now when you do, there are some rules: The first rule is that you cannot stop speaking. You must talk for the full minute. If you have to pause to catch your breath, it’s OK, but you cannot pause for more than three seconds. Even if you say nonsense or you say something unrelated to the topic it doesn’t matter. You’re just going to keep talking. So that’s rule number one. Rule number two is you cannot repeat the same ideas. That means you can’t just say the same things over and over and over again – this isn’t pronunciation practice – it’s fluency development, so no repetition of the same ideas. And rule number three is no writing – you cannot make any notes while you are speaking, you must only concentrate on speaking. These are just the three rules. So to begin, you need a timer, this can be on your smartphone for example. You start stage one by starting the timer and you speak until the one minute is reached. I’m going to give you an example of how to do this. I’m going to take this question: “What is your favorite mode of transport?” and I’m going to speak for a minute on this topic. Now I haven’t done any preparation, so let’s see how I do. OK, so what’s my favorite mode of transport? I would have to say that it’s the train. That’s because um, actually, you get to see a lot of nice scenery, beautiful landscapes and things like that. And you know, train journeys generally tend to be longer than other types of, or rather, other modes of transport. You can see I’m really struggling for ideas but I can’t stop, I have to keep going so I’m saying whatever comes to mind, that’s no problem. But back to the topic at hand, yeah, train journeys because they’re longer, they’re more relaxing. And one last thing I want to mention is that I’ve had the opportunity to meet interesting people and make friends on many train journeys. As a kid I used to ride the train a lot with my family. We used to go to lots of places by train and it’s actually something that I really enjoyed. Phew! That was hard. But that’s OK. That’s the whole point of this exercise. That was stage one. Now we’re going to move on to stage two. Here’s where we’re really going to start building our fluency. The first part of stage two is making notes – so you can use a paper and pen now. And you’re going to think back to the speech that you just gave, and collect ideas you came up with. In my speech, I remember that I had three ideas: The first was that on train journeys, you get to see a lot of beautiful scenery. The second idea was that train journeys are longer, so they’re more relaxing. The third idea was that you get to meet interesting people and make friends. So once you have these ideas down, you’re going to repeat the exercise. That means, you’re going to set your timer for one minute and you’re going to speak again on the same topic, but now, you can use your notes to guide you. You will notice that this time, you are actually able to speak more fluently because you have some good ideas on paper, and you will be able to expand on your ideas and give more information. Once the timer hits one minute, you stop. And we move on to stage three. Just like in stage two, you’re going to go to paper and pen, but this time, you’re going to add more ideas to your notes based on your second speech. I added some ideas like this. So now – for one final time, you’re going to speak again. This is your final speech. So you set your timer for one minute, you use your notes and speak. I’m going to give you my final speech based on my notes so you can see the difference.

How to find and do work you love | Scott Dinsmore | TEDxGoldenGatePark (2D)
Scott Dinsmore's mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently. His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework - three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. He makes his career tools available free to the public through his community at http://LiveYourLegend.net In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) This talk was shot shot and edited in stereoscopic 3D by Golden Gate 3D and Area 5. http://gg3d.com http://area5.tv To view in 3D, click here: http://youtu.be/5o1nCKGk5Bs
