He has served as the go-to guy for trying new, crazy, and often untested ideas to see how well they will work. John co-founded and moderates #CAedchat, the weekly teacher Twitter chat for the state of California. He also is the co-founder and organizer of EdCamp Palm Springs, the first in the area. In his free time that doesn’t exist, he runs a site called Would You Rather? which is dedicated to getting students talking about math. He is an author of Flipping 2.0, a resource that helps teachers take the flipped classroom to the next level. During recent summers, John has had the honor of presenting at CUE Rockstar events in California and various technology and math conferences. John blogs at fishing4tech.com and createdappsinclass.com. His latest adventure has led him into the world of 3D-printing, designing lesson plans and curricula forAirWolf3D. Follow him @jstevens009 or email him at stevens009@gmail.com.  Matt Vaudrey is the Educational Technology Coach for Bonita Unified School District who has taught 7th grade, seniors, and most math classes between those grade-levels. Recently, his school tagged him to pilot a 1:1 iPad program for intervention students. With no curriculum, Matt sought ways to make math meaningful for his students using free technologies available. Matt blogs at MrVaudrey.com, connects with educators across the world on Twitter, and presents at conferences throughout California.

A is for autism (Discourse)

A is for autism (Discourse)
Event on 2017-04-28 19:20:00
An estimated 700,000 people in Britain are affected by autism. Dame Stephanie Shirley will share her hands-on experience of the disorder – providing a virtual reality demonstration of how the world appears to someone on the spectrum; and introducing the robot which teaches at Prior’s Court, her specialist autism school. Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community. By booking to attend events at the Royal Institution, you confirm that you have read and agree to the Ri's event terms and conditions. Discourses are one of the Ri’s oldest and most prestigious series of talks. Since 1825, audiences in the theatre have witnessed countless mind-expanding moments, including the first public liquefaction of air by James Dewar, the announcement of the electron by J.J. Thomson and over 100 lectures by Michael Faraday. In more recent times, we have had Nobel laureates, Fields medal winners, scientists, authors and artists – all from the cutting-edge of their field. Discourses are an opportunity for the best and brightest to share their work with the world. Steeped in nearly two centuries of tradition, a Discourse is more than just a lecture. To keep the focus on the topic, presenters begin sharply at 7:30pm without introduction and we lock the speaker into a room ten minutes ahead of the start (legend has it that a speaker once tried to escape!) We also ask guests to dress smartly to add to the sense of occasion. Discourses are free for members – consider joining today. Find out more about the history of the Friday Evening Discourses on our blog. The dress code for this event is smart (ties optional, no jeans or trainers). Please note, if you are not dressed smartly you may be asked to sit in the gallery. Event image by TED Conference via Flickr

Orobates – Nach 300 Millionen Jahren reanimiert

Orobates – Nach 300 Millionen Jahren reanimiert
Event on 2016-09-09 00:00:00

Wie rekonstruiert man die Bewegung einer vor 300 Millionen Jahren ausgestorbenen Echse? Die Ausstellung "Orobates. Nach 300 Millionen Jahren reanimiert" zeigt die Arbeit eines interdisziplinären Forschungsteams mit spektakulären Objekten.

Originale Fundstücke, Modelle, Röntgenvideos, Animationen und ein lebensgroßer Roboter machen das hochaktuelle Forschungsprojekt greifbar und laden dazu ein, den Forschungsprozess selbst unter die Lupe zu nehmen: Wie kommen die Wissenschaftler_ innen eigentlich zu ihren Ergebnissen? Was kann neueste Technik über ein uraltes Fossil herausfinden? Wo liegen die Grenzen dessen, was man beweisen kann?

Die Ausstellung wurde im Rahmen eines zwei- semestrigen Seminars im bologna.lab-Projekt "Vielfalt der Wissensformen" durch ein Team aus Studierenden der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin und der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar kuratiert und gestaltet.

Clamping large, irregular parts directly to the mill table. "Facing" a part using a fly cutter. Cutting precise features using an endmill. Drilling precise, ordinately-dimensioned holes. Lathe Clamping round parts using a three-jaw vise. Clamping irregular parts using a 4-jaw vise. Turning operations on a cylindrical part. Facing operations on a raw part. Parting off of completed parts. Threading using the lathe. Drilling and tapping using the lathe. Other Introduction to material selection Introduction to machining theory Introduction to engineering design   Prerequisites: No experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: Aluminum and steel practice pieces: . Material can be purchased directly from the instructor.
