Extractions: ACTIVITY INDEX Follow the links and learn about Civil, Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical, Materials, Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering! Each lesson contains hands-on or interactive activities as well as explanations of the science and engineering. Chemical - Chromatography - 6 Pages Chromatography is used by crime laboratories to identify clues such as blood, ink, or other substances found at a crime scene. Chromatograms of these clues are compared against chromatograms of known substances for identification. In this experiment you get to be the detective! Can you identify the 12 color colored markers? Chemical - T-Shirt Chromatography - 3 Pages Chromatography is a technique used to separate mixtures. In this activity you will create your own colorful T-shirt design while learning about chromatography. You will separate the ink from permanent colored markers to make a rainbow of colors on your T-shirt! Chemical - Funny Putty - 4 Pages Matter exists in three states: solid, liquid, and gas, but sometimes a substance does not seem to fit in any of these categories. Is clay or putty a solid or a liquid? Clay and putty are colloids. Colloids are mixtures of a substance suspended in another substance. In this fun activity, you will make putty and investigate its behavior! Chemical/Civil - Oxidation and Corrosion - 4 Pages When exposed to moist air different metals may lose their shine and become dull or start to corrode. In this experiment you'll learn to identify different metals and types of corrosion and restore a metal's bright shiny finish.

Extractions: Assessment tools - Activities and Formal Studies Before we get to the survey templates, we need to explain some of the underlying ideas to help you use them productively. Computers and the Web do not, by themselves, cause To make this same point about activities in a different way, it used to be common for people to ask, "If we use this new form of technology, how much better will people learn?" I call that a dyadic question because it has only two elements: the technology and the outcome. But to provide a sensible, useful answer to such a question, you must specify at least three elements: One or more technologies (and possibly other elements of context) One or more activities that happen with the help of the technology One or more outcomes of those activities. We call this activity-centered view of technology a triad because it has three elements. If you'd like a slightly longer version of this explanation, click here for a narrated slideshow ; you'll need Real Player to hear and see it. If we are together on this notion about the centrality of what people choose to do with technology, we can take a look at
