HyperCard, application for the Macintosh computer, gives a computer user the ability to design and develop a piece of high quality, interactive software with out having to become a master programmer. The basic unit of HyperCard is the Card, onto which a combination of text and graphics can be placed. A series of Cards can be assembled into a functional unit called a Stack by using simple commands, or Scripts that are used to move throughout the Stack. The chief objective here is to have students work in a group to design and develop a HyperCard Stack on some topic in Biology. By doing so, students gain valuable hands-on experience in the use of computer technology in a science class and they gain valuable skills in learning to see the computer as a partner in creativity. Students also learn a great deal about their particular topic. In addition, these students produce a library of high quality interactive software that can be used by other students. (less)

" This studio will investigate the social, programmatic, tectonic and phenomenological performance and character of a student gathering place on the MIT campus. Whether it is simply for socializing or for more specific events, the student gathering place will serve as a refuge from the vigorous educational environment of the Institute, and it will reinforce a critical sense of "place" through the almost logical organization of its program. The place will foster a casual discovery of "being": a reflection upon the student's own existence based upon participation in group events and an intellectual attitude toward acting. To create a space that inspires, rather than imposes: such a discovery is the foremost challenge of this studio." (less)

Before the Beginning...The Return of the Cyclic Universe

This is a summary written by Catherine Baker on a lecture by ... (more)

This is a summary written by Catherine Baker on a lecture by Dr Paul Steinhardt.In the last fifty years a great deal of evidence has accumulated in support of a "consensus" theory of the evolution of the universe. This theory holds that a "big bang" precipitated a huge split-second inflation of the universe, followed by a gradual expansion that continues to this day and is now accelerating."But just maybe that turns out to be wrong," says Paul Steinhardt, Ph.D. Dr. Steinhardt is Albert Einstein Professor of Science and Professor of Physics at Princeton University. Dr.Steinhardt and his colleague Neil Turok of Cambridge University have put forward a competing idea: that the universe exists in an infinite cycle of expansion and contraction.Dr. Steinhardt compared the consensus model with the new cyclic theory at a January 16 lecture sponsored by the Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER), a programof the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).Dr. Steinhardt explained that cosmology has been a subject of human inquiry as far back as recorded history, but it really only began as a science about 80 years ago. That waswhen telescopes became large and precise enough to get a detailed look at the universe beyond this solar system. (less)
