This class investigates the use of computers in architectural design and construction. ...

This class investigates the use of computers in architectural design and construction. It begins with a pre-prepared design computer model, which is used for testing and process investigation in construction. It then explores the process of construction from all sides of the practice: detail design, structural design, and both legal and computational issues.

The University of Santiago de Compostela is organizing the D3MOBILE METROLOGY WORLD ...

The University of Santiago de Compostela is organizing the D3MOBILE METROLOGY WORLD LEAGUE (www.d3mobile.es), an International Championship in 3D Precision Modeling on mobile phones aimed at strengthening the scientific vocation of 15-18 year old students around the world. The main objective of D3MOBILE is to disseminate importance of metrology, offering participants to develop 3D accuracy virtual models with a mobile phone. The championship winner will be the team that gets better results in measurements of an object. This is a worldwide pioneering initiative and it is sponsored by various public and private entities in science, technology and government, both Spanish and foreign.
The main objectives of the Championship will be the simulation and stimulation of students’ research capacity in order to encourage their reflecting upon its importance when it comes to solving our environment’s problems and on the importance of decision making based on the analysis of the results obtained in an experimental process. Furthermore, the exercises proposed in this Championship encourage the educational use of the Internet and learning various technical computer programs which students might find useful for their future work. English, the language used in some of the programs, will constitute a further challenge and at the same time advancement in self-training.

This is an advanced subject in computer modeling and CAD CAM fabrication, with a focus on building large-scale prototypes and digital mock-ups within a classroom setting. Prototypes and mock-ups are developed with the aid of outside designers, consultants, and fabricators. Field trips and in-depth relationships with building fabricators demonstrate new methods for building design. The class analyzes complex shapes, shape relationships, and curved surfaces fabrication at a macro scale leading to new architectural languages, based on methods of construction.

Students learn how viruses invade host cells and hijack their cell-reproduction mechanisms ...

Students learn how viruses invade host cells and hijack their cell-reproduction mechanisms in order to make new viruses, which can in turn attack additional host cells. Students also learn how the immune system responds to viral invasions, eventually defeating the viruses—if all goes well. Finally, they consider the special case of HIV, in which the virus' host cell is a key component of the immune system itself, thereby severely crippling the immune system and ultimately leading to AIDS. Note the recommended order to conduct this lesson/activitiy set: After presenting the lesson's Introduction/Motivation content, conduct the associated activity—a dramatic hands-on simulation that illustrates how quickly a virus can spread through a population, and then challenges students to determine who the initial bearers of the virus were. Then return to the lesson, with students ready to learn more about viruses.
