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. To see the entire lesson plan, see here: http://www.childrensuniversity.eu/lesson-plans/lesson-plans/technology-and-design/how-to-build-a-durable-bridge Speaker: Chris Woodcock Shooting: Witold Dajek Editing: Witold Dajek Casting: Agnieszka Żarnowska Scriptwriting: Chris Woodcock, Agnieszka Żarnowska Producer: Agnieszka Żarnowska

Bridge Up! Program
Bridge UP! is a K-12 curriculum that uses bridge design and construction to teach science and math principles. Bridge UP! was written BY teachers, FOR teachers. Bridge UP! meets current Minnesota and Wisconsin science education standards and benchmarks. Bridge UP! is comprised of 3 main parts: 1. An iBook for grades K-3 2. Interactive web modules for grades 4-8, and 3. Lesson Plans for grades K-12 Each part can be used on its own, or partnered together as described in the individual lesson plans. Who is Bridge UP! for? Bridge UP! is designed for: teachers, substitute teachers, After School Programs and Activities, parents, and kids! Why Choose Bridge UP! ? Bridge UP! is FREE! Everyone travels over, around, and near bridges so it’s a great way to connect kids to real life engineering that’s all around us. Why is Bridge UP! important to MnDOT? We want to encourage students to go into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math or STEM fields, or at least consider their impact on our world. Growth in STEM fields is expected to double in the next twenty years, outpacing both overall job growth and the current talent pool. Outreach to our schools is important MnDOT, because we need to recruit and retain the next generation of our workforce. One that reflects the changing make-up of Minnesota. Please consider using Bridge UP! in your classrooms and organizations, and at home, to help introduce your kids to the exciting world of civil engineering. How to Get Bridge UP! All Bridge UP! Materials are available FREE on our website at: www.mndot.gov/stem Other Resources MnDOT would love to be a part of your school’s or organization’s STEM efforts! We have lots of resources beyond Bridge UP!, such as fun presentations and hands-on activities with MnDOT volunteers and mentors to bring STEM concepts to life.

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

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.

STEM Project: Seventh Grade Hurricane Houses
The seventh grade’s first unit of study this year in earth science was weather. Students learned about weather tools and factors as well as big weather events such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. In class, students practiced tracking hurricanes and kept a close eye on the path of hurricane Jouquin as it approached the U.S. The culminating weather activity was a STEM project in which 7th graders worked in small groups to build a structure that could withstand hurricane force winds. This activity began with a brainstorming session where the kids came up with a list of things that could/would cause damage to a house during a hurricane. Kids came up with a list that included high winds, storm surges, flooding, power outages and torrential rainfall. They then came up with ways to make a house that could withstand hurricane force winds. Ideas included reinforced walls, hurricane shutters, and the shape of the building. Students were then given a list of building materials and construction constraints. The house had to be 2000 cu. Cm or more and it had to include two windows and a door. They then drew their house plans and listed the dimensions before actually building the house. Due to the unique designs of the houses, many students used volume formulas for cones, pyramids and spheres. Finally, it was time to test! A leaf blower was used to replicate hurricane force winds. The ability of the house to withstand hurricane force winds was judged by how close the leaf blower could get to the house before the house was destroyed. Twenty feet away was a category one, 15 ft a category two etc. To wrap up this activity students discussed what worked and what didn’t with regards to stability. Kids also discussed how building a simple model could be applied to “real” buildings. Science – What are hurricanes? What causes them? How difficult are they to predict? How can we stay safe? Technology - Track hurricanes. Research hurricane safe houses Engineering - Build a hurricane safe house Math– Use formulas to calculate 2000 cu. Cm.

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.

Building Bridges of Peace: Edward Daleng at TEDxViadellaConciliazione
Father Edward Daleng is an Augustinian Friar from Nigeria who...builds bridges. The materials he works with are not cement, steel or wood, but dialogue, generosity and peace. The bridges he and Apurimac onlus, the NGO of the Augustinians in the world, build for Nigeria's augustinian province are programs of intercultural and inter-religious dialogue in a state where intollerance and discrimination have taken over. Today, after many years of hard work, the Augustinians in Nigeria and the Italian NGO are coordinating a network of 60 Nigerian associations working together to transform religion from an instrument of hate and death into one of freedom -- and a right for all. 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)

How to build a company where the best ideas win | Ray Dalio
What if you knew what your coworkers really thought about you and what they were really like? Ray Dalio makes the business case for using radical transparency and algorithmic decision-making to create an idea meritocracy where people can speak up and say what they really think -- even calling out the boss is fair game. Learn more about how these strategies helped Dalio create one of the world's most successful hedge funds and how you might harness the power of data-driven group decision-making.

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.

Writing Skills: The Paragraph
http://www.engvid.com The paragraph is the most important unit of a well-written essay. The paragraph has a specific structure and standards that make it effective and enjoyable to read. In this writing lesson we will look at how to construct good paragraphs and improve writing with better flow and clarity. After the lesson, take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/writing-skills-paragraph/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about the paragraph. It's a writing lesson, and I want to show people what a paragraph is and how to construct one, what to do, what not to do so you can write very clear, very tight paragraphs. This is especially important for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students but everybody has to follow the exact same rules. Now before I even begin, I must say that I'm talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let's begin. In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don't do both. If you skip a line, don't indent. Okay? That's the main thing. Now, that's in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content -- and this, I can't stress this enough -- very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I've seen many people, I've seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you're talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that's maybe okay because you're still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there's a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you're talking about. One paragraph, one central idea. Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It's a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we'll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let's say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can't go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay? How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you're still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can't be too long because you don't have time and you're going to start making mistakes. So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you're saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you're trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you're trying to say. Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic. Now, key terms. If you're talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you're using the word "moreover" in the paragraph, don't use it, don't use "moreover" again -- use "in addition to", use "furthermore", "another", etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.
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.

Creating Floor Plans from Images in SketchUp - The SketchUp Essentials #23
This tutorial will teach you how to create a floor plan in SketchUp using an image as a basis. ♦SUPPORT ME♦ http://www.patreon.com/thesketchupessentials ♦Courses♦ http://www.thesketchupessentials.com/courses ♦Website♦ http://www.thesketchupessentials.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------- You can also bring an image in of a floor plan if you have an existing plan you’d like to model. For example, I can import this image I have by selecting file, then import, then selecting an image. Make sure you have the box marked image selected when you do this. You can click once to set a base point for your image, then click again to set the size. Don’t focus too much on that at this point, because we’re going to use the tape measure tool to resize it so that it’s to scale. To do that, double click inside your image, then use the tape measure to measure the distance between two points that is a known value. Once you’ve measured this length, type in the value you would like that segment to be and hit the enter key. You will receive a message asking if you’d like to resize your model – select yes. You can resize individual components or your whole model depending on which options you select. Once your floor plan is to scale, you can trace your wall onto it. The one thing you may want to do is to go ahead and draw your doors in before you extrude your walls. This way you don’t have to go back and locate your doors after the fact. You can use the rectangle tool to come back in and create your door frames. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLEASE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE More SketchUp tutorials and resources at http://www.thesketchupessentials.com Check Us Out On - Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easysketchup Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/thesketchupessentials Pinterest - http://www.pinterest.com/easysketchup/

If you know what an engineer does or don't, an engineer designs things like buildings and structures and cars and planes. But I want to just throw a question out there. A couple years ago there was a devastating earthquake in Haiti and so many of these buildings in Haiti just came crumbling down and just a few short months later or weeks, I can't remember what it was there was an earthquake in Chile or Chil-e depending upon however you want to say it. I say tomato, you say to-mato. So the one in Chile was so much stronger. I mean just powerful earthquake. But here's the weird part. There wasn't a lot of damage. So this is weird. Haiti, weaker earthquake, tons of damage. Chile, Chil-e so much stronger, much stronger earthquake, minimal damage. Well why? Well, you see, building and engineering is very important and you need to think about strength, stability when you're building something. And I want to show you something really cool. What is this? It's just a sheet of paper right? I'm going to take this paper and this is card stock, it's not regular paper it's a little thicker, but it's just paper. I'm going to take the paper and I'm going to roll it around so I can make a really big cylinder. And when you do this at home you're really going to impress your parents. Because nobody is going to expect what's about to happen to happen. Take a piece of tape, take one, take two, take three. Now you want to make sure that your cylinder is level because I'm going to put it on my table and I need it to be balanced because if it loses it's center of gravity, gravity will knock it down. Gravity is a force that pulls everything down to the earth and if it's not balanced it will fall. But this is called a cylinder. It's a building shape. Maybe structures are cylinder shaped. Now I have a question to ask you. Is this cylinder shape a strong cylinder shape to build with? You see buildings need to be strong, they need to withstand, they need hold weight. Well what if I added a book to it. What if I added all of these books to it? Will a regular sheet of paper hold the weight, and I'm a strong dude, I cannot hold one of these. My arm right now is hurting. That's how heavy these books are. If I am not able to hold these books for a matter or ten seconds how in the world is this sheet of paper going to do it. Will it? No, right? Well let's see. That's science. I ask you a question, make a prediction. How many books do you think this paper could hold before it crumbles and gravity knocks it down? Five? Three? Okay? Made your prediction? Now lets test it. One at a time. Now the first book is the most important book. It needs to be balanced. That's one book. That's two books. And now we have three. And now you have four. Ten. Okay. This is weird. How is paper holding up ten books? You know what this is proving? That there are certain shapes that are not meant to be strong. Okay? And that's unfortunate because in Haiti there aren't many engineers to help design buildings to be strong and withstand earthquakes. But look this cylinder is a strong shape. That's ten. Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen. That's thirteen and fourteen. Now you want to add these books slowly otherwise you and your force is what's going to knock it down. You want to come from the top slowly. Fifteen and sixteen and seventeen and now, whoa, big book, it's going to fall, no way. Nineteen, and twenty. And now you got twenty-one and twenty-two. twenty-three. Boys and girls there's no way your prediction was it holding twenty-three books. This is jut paper. Look at this. This is I believe twenty-four. And now you have twenty-five and twenty-six and twenty-seven. I think I'm going to stop here. It held twenty-seven books. Look at this. A regular sheet of paper which we rolled and we turned it into a cylinder shape held the weight of twenty-seven books. And look, for about a minute already. I wasn't able to hold it for ten seconds. And you know what? I have thousands of books here, I love to read. But guess what? I'm not going to add another book. Do you know why? because I'm giving you a challenge. I dare you to go get a sheet of card stock, roll it up into a cylinder, get it flat, balance it. And go grab a bunch of books. Do you think you could beat my record of twenty-seven books right now? I don't think you can. I need you guys to go investigate and try to get your paper cylinder to hold more than twen

How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."
