Carleton's Energy Future
This three-day workshop brought together a learning community that studied Carleton College's energy future from different perspectives and disciplines. Work was done in small interdisciplinary teams in order to share and probe disciplinary/specialty perspectives, moving toward creation of a "blended" inquiry into Carleton's energy future.
- Direct Measurement Video project launches expanded video collection
Direct Measurement Videos are short, high-quality videos of real events that students can use to explore and apply physics concepts. What sets these videos apart from others is that students can measure distances, time, angles, and other variables right off the videos, allowing for a wide variety of quantitative and theoretical exploration.
