Alternative Fuels First Responder Training Modules
Rating

These modules were originally presented to First Responders during a two-day workshop at the North Carolina Solar Center (now known as the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center) and were taught by National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium trained instructors. Three separate modules were used to educate them on the properties, technology, and safety precautions to take when working with alternative fuel vehicles utilizing gaseous fuels, biofuels, and electric drivetrains.

Atlas of the Pacific Northwest
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This 2018 edition is the first to be released in a digital, fully-interactive format, designed to highlight facets of the Pacific Northwest landscape with novel approaches to data presentation. Where previous editions of the atlas were designed to ask and answer questions, this atlas serves as a platform for the geographically curious to explore the region, providing as many critical questions as it does critical answers.

Beyond this page are maps of the familiar and the unfamiliar. Migration maps highlight human movement between the Pacific Northwest and the rest of the United States; a wildfire timeline chronicles the year-to-year spread of modern and historical fires; and the watershed guide abandons traditional political boundaries in favor of natural, hydrological borders. All data in the atlas were gathered from publically accessible sources, compiled using open-source software and coding libraries. This is an atlas designed to be open, responsive, and to satisfy the geographic curiosity of any and all interested.

The Biculturalization or Intersectionality of Identity in the 21st Century
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This lesson and project emerged out of the course EDU 311: C, D, and E in Global Education (Culture, Diversity, and Equality). Specifically we look at the diversity of voices and cultures present in our nation’s history, which may or not be located directly in the curriculum. For this reason students, future teachers especially, need to be aware to omitted or misrepresented voices, including diversity responsibly, and be sensitive to diversity or multicultural education. The text we use is Diversity Matters (Spradlin, 2012) which delves specifically into dominant culture and minority culture helps to first frame then self identify the concept of intersectionality.

Blue Sky and Rayleigh Scattering
Rating

This site from Georgia State University explains why we see the sky as blue. It describes Rayleigh scattering, which refers to the scattering of light off of the molecules of the air, and Mie scattering, which refers to the scattering of light by larger particles.
