WWI: How History Shaped Technology

98 years ago this week, the United States entered World War I. The Wright brothers had only taken to the sky 14 years before, but airplanes still played a vital role in the war effort. Because of the events of WWI, airplane technology developed at an incredible rate. This fast-paced webcast will look at how airplanes changed in this short timeframe, how other technology advanced, and how airplanes were used throughout WWI.

WWII and Tuskegee Airmen

Before 1941, there weren't any African American pilots in the United States armed forces. The Tuskegee Airmen changed that. With the United States' entry into World War II imminent, the U.S. Army Air Corps (the predecessor to the U.S. Air Force) decided to offer training to African Americans as pilots and mechanics. Called the Tuskegee Airmen because they trained in Tuskegee, Alabama, these airmen made a pioneering contribution to the war and the subsequent drive to end racial segregation in the American military. This episode of STEM in 30 will look at the role African Americans played during the war and how World War II changed aviation history

WWII Intervention

To Intervene or not to Intervene? That is the question.

In WWI, President Woodrow Wilson famously "Kept Us Out of War" during his first term before eventually leading the country into Europe's war. More than two decades later, are Americans considering themselves isolationists? Should we intervene in WWII? How would different historical figures weigh in on the matter?

WWII Radar

World War II and the increased usage of air power led to the rise of radar for the purpose of early warning capabilities. This was crucial due to the bombing runs conducted by Germans across Europe, specifically in Britain, as well as the pivotal role of air power in the Pacific theater. The first picture is of a captured Japanese radar set, including two indicators, two receivers, one transmitter, among other essential components. This radar was used by the Japanese Navy. The second picture shows an American Identification Unit Contactor. It was used by the Americans in Britain to identify themselves as friendly, prior to the invention of dedicated IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) transponders. There were only 500 units produced. The US Navy developed the Oscilloscope Radar, shown in picture three. It was a simplified display system which allowed a fighter pilot to utilize the radar himself, without the use of a radar operator. It was simple to use and had a range of five miles. The next two pictures show the British Airborne Intercept Radar receiver and transmitter. These were the common radar devices utilized by the British throughout World War II.

WWII unit: Analyzing artist appropriation

This collection is meant for students to examine how an author/artist transforms the meaning of source material. In this case, students will consider Roger Shimomura's Diary: December 12, 1941 as part of a unit on WWII. They will address the prompt: How does Roger Shimomura transform the meaning of Superman in his painting, Diary: December 12, 1941?

My collection is about different animal skulls. There is a bison skull, a pig skull, and cow skull.

I chose my theme because bones are interesting and important. Also, I wanted to let people know about the inside of animal bodies. The reason why I chose skulls instead of other bones is because the head is the most important for all people and animals. Their protection is from the skull.

I want my visitors to take away that the skulls are gross and even they have skulls.
