Screenshot for Pneumatic Directional Control Valves
This learning object examines pneumatic directional control valves in two-way, three-way, and four-way valves. The presentation is interactive, as it allows the user to focus of certain valve types and cater their learning towards those. The site employs flash based animations, and also many other...
Screenshot for Pneumatic Actuators
This learning object covers cylinders and motor pneumatic actuators. It is hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison and consists of cylinders operations such as: single, duel acting, factors for cylinder speed. The program require Macromedia Flash player, and presents a very nice overall...
Screenshot for Computer System Engineering
This is a course description for Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) course 6.033, Computer System Engineering.  It covers topics on the engineering of computer software and hardware systems, such as: techniques for controlling complexity; strong modularity using client-server design,...
Screenshot for Mathematics for Computer Science
This is a course description for Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) course 6.042J, Mathematics for Computer Science.  This is an introductory course in discrete mathematics oriented toward students interested in computer science and engineering. The course divides roughly into thirds:...

Pump gas molecules to a box and see what happens as you change the volume, add or remove heat, change gravity, and more. Measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other. This simulation of a Gas Properties is from the Physics Education...

Learn how to make waves of all different shapes by adding up sines or cosines. Make waves in space and time and measure their wavelengths and periods. See how changing the amplitudes of different harmonics changes the waves. Compare different mathematical expressions for your waves. This simulation...

How did Rutherford figure out the structure of the atomic nucleus without looking at it? Simulate the famous experiment in which he disproved the Plum Pudding model of the atom by observing alpha particles bouncing off atoms and determining that they must have a small core. This simulation of a...
Screenshot for Introduction to Pneumatics Course
This 30-page resource provides a comprehensive and hands-on introduction to pneumatics and fluid power capabilities. Sixteen experiments are included. This resources is available free for download. 
Screenshot for eGFI
The ASEE engineering K-12 center, eGFI, seeks to identify and gather in one place the most effective engineering education resources available to the K-12 community. It works to enhance achievement in pre-college science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by promoting the...
