In this activity, learners work individually to assemble a product and then work in teams to design, construct, test, and redesign an assembly line process whose product must meet specific quality control criteria. Learners reflect and compare the two approaches. <BR> Note: Page 14 is not in the correct position. It should actually be between pages 2 and 3. (less)

Working in teams of four, learners build tetrahedral kites following specific instructions and using specific materials. They use the basic processes of manufacturing systems--cutting, shaping, forming, conditioning, assembling, joining, finishing, and quality control--to manufacture complete tetrahedral kites within a given time frame. Investigating questions encourage learners to reflect about the engineering and manufacturing process. Activity contains recommended resources about the history of kites and their construction.

This video demonstrates students measuring the acidity of water, using pH indicator paper and a pH meter. The resource includes a video and a written transcript, and is supported by the Water pH Protocol in the GLOBE Teacher's Guide. This is one of seven videos on hydrology in the 24-part instructional video series describing scientific protocols used by GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment), a worldwide, hands-on, K-12 school-based science education program.

This half-term course introduces students to problems and analysis related to the design, planning, control, and improvement of manufacturing and service operations. Class sessions involve explaining concepts, working examples, and discussing cases. A wide range of topics are covered, including: process analysis, quality management, supply chain design, procurement, and product development. Toward the end of the course, students work in teams to manage a virtual factory in a web-based simulation exercise. (less)

Learners examine the manufacturing process while they make picture frames from cereal boxes. Although this is a simple project, it gives learners the opportunity to think about and discuss the more complex engineering topics of: mass production, quality control, production efficiency, safety, product design, and distribution. Resource contains vocabulary definitions and suggestions for assessment, extensions, and scaling for different levels of learners. (less)

Real-Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA): What is the NCEP RTMA and how can it be used?

The NCEP Real-Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA), provides current conditions in digital form on the NWS National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) 5-km grid. This product was upgraded in early July 2007 to the point where its use by forecast offices is now encouraged for situational awareness, creating short-term forecast grids, and evaluating recent forecast grids and forecast bias. Unique to the RTMA is an uncertainty or error estimate for some of its analysis parameters. These uncertainty estimates perhaps could be used to determine when a forecast is “good enough”. This Webcast discusses why the RTMA and its parent project, the Analysis of Record, were created, how the RTMA is generated, and its capabilities, limitations, and possible applications. The Webcast includes extensive discussion about how representative individual observations are and how they are handled by the analysis. The topics covered include: * The context for developing the RTMA and related future developments * Use of the RTMA in the human forecast process * The steps in generating RTMA products: forecast, downscaling, observation data sets, quality control, two-dimensional variational analysis (2d-var), “uncertainty” estimates, multisensor precipitation analysis, and GOES Effective Cloud Amount * Limitations related to how RTMA products are generated * How an observation affects the 2d-var analysis * Issues raised by the analysis using accurate observations which are not representative of their surrounding area * Preliminary performance assessment over complex terrain * Key changes under development for future RTMA implementations (less)
