365 Artists 365 Days Project
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

On January 1, 2014, The Frank Juarez Gallery and Greymatter Gallery launched the 365 Artists 365 Days Project to the world.

What started as a way to spotlight contemporary artists daily from across the country blossomed into getting the attention of artists from across the globe such as Germany, Slovenia, Australia, Russia, London, Israel and the United Kingdom.

What began as a one-year project rapidly grew into two-years of highlighting artists from across the globe. It was great to see the enthusiasm of artists through sharing our posts especially their own. Although this project is has come to a close, the plan is to keep the site up & running. This project is too important to take offline.

Architectural Design, Level II: Material and Tectonic Transformations: The Herreshoff Museum, Fall 2003
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This semester students are asked to transform the Hereshoff Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island, through processes of erasure and addition. Hereshoff Manufacturing was recognized as one of the premier builders of America's Cup racing boats between 1890's and 1930's. The studio however, is about more then the program. It is about land, water, and wind and the search for expressing materially and tectonically the relationships between these principle conditions. That is, where the land is primarily about stasis (docking, anchoring and referencing our locus), water's fluidity holds the latent promise of movement and freedom. Movement is activated by wind, allowing for negotiating the relationship between water and land.

Career Options for Biomedical Research, Fall 2006
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This course has been designed as a seminar to give students an understanding of how scientists with medical or scientific degrees conduct research in both hospital and academic settings. There will be interactive discussions with research clinicians and scientists about the career opportunities and research challenges in the biomedical field, which an MIT student might prepare for by obtaining an MD, PhD, or combined degrees. The seminar will be held in a case presentation format, with topics chosen from the radiological sciences, including current research in magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography and other nuclear imaging techniques, and advances in radiation therapy. With the lectures as background, we will also examine alternative and related options such as biomedical engineering, medical physics, and medical engineering. We'll use as examples and points of comparisons the curriculum paths available through MIT's Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering. In past years we have given very modest assignments such as readings in advance of or after a seminar, and a short term project.

City Tour PowerPoint Presentation
Rating

After learning the basics of how to use PowerPoint, students will use the skills learned to create a PowerPoint presentation on a major US city. The students will need to use basic Powerpoint skills such as transitions, animations, word count per slide, title & conclusion slides, and more. 
Students will research a major US city to find basic city facts, three unique restaurants, three hotels (at varying price ranges), and three attractions that visitors to the city may wish to visit.
Each student should choose a different city to avoid duplicate presentations and to provide a unique experience for each student.
Students can then present their PowerPoints to the class.

Students conduct Internet research to investigate the purpose and current functioning status of some of the largest dams throughout the world. They investigate the success or failure of eight dams and complete a worksheet. While researching the dams, they also gain an understanding of the scale of these structures by recording and comparing their reservoir capacities. Students come to understand that dams, like all engineered structures, have a finite lifespan and require ongoing maintenance and evaluation for their usefulness.

Design Step 2: Research the Problem
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Through Internet research, patent research, standards and codes research, user interviews (if possible) and other techniques (idea web, reverse engineering), students further develop the context for their design challenge. In subsequent activities, the design teams use this body of knowledge about the problem to generate product design ideas. (Note: Conduct this activity in the context of a design project that students are working on, which could be a challenge determined by the teacher, brainstormed with the class, or the example project challenge provided [to design a prosthetic arm that can perform a mechanical function]. This activity is Step 2 in a series of six that guide students through the engineering design loop.)
