"Fruit-Full" Arkansas: Apples

Arkansas has many agricultural products and folks in the know are aware of the many apple varieties grown in the state. This digital exhibit contains 69 items related to apple culture taken from collections housed at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the University of Arkansas. Select items for this special collection include souvenir booklets, poetry, and photographs. First-time...
"Garage Demos:" Physical models of Biological Processes

Professor Diane O'Dowd is known for the creative classroom techniques she uses in her introductory biology courses at the University of California, Irvine. One day she will show up with tennis balls designed to stand in for hydrogen ions or with her daughter's old Halloween wig, which stands in for a membrane vesicle. This website provides visitors with fabulous examples of her work, known as...

3-D Microbatteries

A collaboration between three universities is working to create a battery that is capable of powering microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The work is especially important because no viable battery currently exists for these tiny devices. The three-dimensional battery will be a departure from current battery designs, which stack "positive and negative electrodes... like sheets of paper." As more...
3-D Simulations

Three-dimensional (3-D) rendering and animation technology is not only used for entertainment, but also for research and educational purposes. The technology can be used for purposes of scientific simulation in fields such as physics, biology, or chemistry. For example, Stanford University's Folding@home project (1) uses 3-D simulations and distributed computing to study protein folding,...

40 + Years of Earth Science: The Landsat Program

A variety of man-made objects have been sent into outer space for decades, and as a very large and distinguished group, they have sent back important data. NASA has been at the forefront of these efforts here in the United States, and the Landsat Program has certainly been quite successful since its inception in the early 1970s. This website provides a wealth of information on the Landsat Program,...
4000 Years of Women in Science

The central claim of this website is that people (both women and men) have been active in science for as long as we have been human, noting that "_Science_ -- the creation of structure for our world -- _technology_ -- the use of structure in our world -- and _mathematics_ -- the common language of structure -- all have been part of our human progress, through every step of our path to the...
