Engineering Flight

This collection is designed to teach students engineering skills using methods similar to those that made the Wright brothers pioneers of aviation.

The first segment is a brief introduction to the forces of flight dynamics. The second segment is an online interactive, "Engineering the Wright Way", where students will develop engineering skills to design and test all the different components of an airplane based on the the Wrights' methodology. Students can write down a save code generated in the interactive to store their progress and return to finish the activity later. The final segment is an online interactive to test fly the original Wright Flyer in conditions similar to that cold December morning when the Wrights first achieved flight, using direct 3D scans of the original Wright Flyer made by the Smithsonian.

The "Engineering the Wright Way" lesson plan and activity were created by the National Air and Space Museum, courtesy of the Alcoa Foundation.
The Wright Brothers Flyer activity was created by the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access.

Was Reconstruction a Failure?

The period after the Civil War, known as Reconstruction, had lofty goals for reuniting the nation and preserving the new rights given to African-Americans. For a time, these goals were achieved and three important amendments were made to the Constitution. However, by 1876 Reconstruction was considered over and much of the progress that had been made was undone. This collection of detailed prints and cartoons highlight many different aspects of Reconstruction and asks students to consider the overall result of Reconstruction. Students can analyze each one using the embedded questions.

University of Brasilia stone

São minerais, rochas ou matérias petrificados que lapidadas ou polidas se tornam colecionáveis, com aspectos diferentes uma das outras e de diversos valores. Em algumas culturas as pedras são consideradas como amuletos, absorvendo e transmitindo energia e em outras culturas as pedras são usadas como apenas um acessório, alguma das vezes usando as mais caras, no caso as pedras preciosas, para demonstrar um empoderamento no meio social em que vive.
