View Resource Lectures on Superconductivity

Provided by Cambridge University's Applied Superconductivity and Cryoscience Group this series of lectures on superconductivity features contributions from leading world experts in academia and industry. The project was led by Dr. Bartek Glowacki and was funded by SCENET-2, Pi-Shirt, and the European Science Foundation and the lectures are available free of charge. As the project continues, there...

View Resource Molecular Expressions: Electricity and Magnetism - Generators and Motors

This item is a comprehensive beginning tutorial on generators and motors. Fully illustrated, it explains how current flows through a conductor and how motors change electric energy into mechanical energy. The author devotes careful attention to coils and how they are used to cut through lines of force and strengthen a magnetic field. The latter half of the tutorial illustrates both AC and DC...

View Resource Home Energy Analysis

This is the second part of a two-part exercise in which students perform an audit and analysis of energy consumption in their homes. In this part, students will estimate the amount of energy they use in their homes and investigate how their lifestyle impacts this amount. They will consider various sources of energy loss and the number of air exchanges per hour. Then, they will use the parameters...

View Resource A Cool Glass of Water

This case study uses the example of ice in fresh and salt water- in which type of water would ice melt more quickly? The lesson helps students explore the concepts of density, heat transfer, conduction and convection. This material would be appropriate for upper level high school or lower level undergraduate classes. The case study and teaching notes may be downloaded in PDF format. The site also...
