Hello from Moscow, Russia and the SEED Collaborative Workshop! This blog will provide daily text and photo updates on the four-day workshop. For a more personal look, check my other SEED blog postings under the title “Stranger in Moscow.”

Spooky Bubbles - Halloween Science

Ocultar

In the US, Halloween is a holiday full of slimy things, creepy crawlers, and lots of fun! When I think of fun, I think of hands-on science experiments. My friends here at the SEED offices are the same way so we decided to try out a little Halloween science!

Time lapse video: What it is and how it can be used

Ocultar

A time lapse video involves the compression of time to show a “sped-up” version of what actually transpired. A photograph is captured at a specific interval (such as one photo every 60 seconds) and then the series of photos is converted to video (such as at a frame rate of 30 frames-per-second). The parenthesized example would compress 30 minutes of time into one second. A day’s worth could be viewed in 48 seconds. By changing the interval and frame rate, one can alter the length easily.

Butterfly Dance

Ocultar

Look at this beautiful butterfly that was just dancing outside my office window. The creature was so large, I thought it was a bird at first. Isn't nature spectacular?

I wanted to identify the type of butterfly. With the help of the Web site Gardens with Wings, I have surmised that this is a giant swallowtail. Do you think I'm right?

Lunar Eclipse Patterns

Ocultar

Lunar eclipses happen when the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth. By definition, this can happen only during the full Moon phase, because that is when the Moon is on the side of the Earth opposite the Sun. Because of the tilt of the Moon's orbit with respect to that of the Earth, it does not pass through the Earth's shadow during each full Moon. This usually happens only two or three times per year, on average. (Occasionally, this will happen more frequently. For example, in 2020, there will be four lunar eclipses!)

Since 1998, students at SEED schools have been invited to express their artistic and creative talents in themes of science, nature, and diversity. Every year we receive amazing works of art that tell us how SEED students see the world. 

The Changing Earth: An Interactive Map

Ocultar

This is a pretty interesting resource I found. It is an interactive map of the Earth, showing how it looked at different points in the past, and speculating what it will look like in the future. You can also see what the temperature was at different times, relative to other eras.
