The Kingdom of Evoan: COVID-19 Attack

The Kingdom of Evoan: COVID-19 Attack

Description

As part of our DYOM, we created a physical science kit named Hygiene Heroes for the project sci@home. It is a project that focuses on providing an avenue for students from low income families to continue learning about science in an engaging way, even in this tough COVID-19 period.

We decided to shift the same content that we created, online! However, this geNiUSbook also comes with a twist, where we decided to present our science kit using a video game concept. This concept is brought across by the various pixel images included in the geNiUSbook, which was created from scratch.

Our audience (you!) will take on the role of a villager in the Kingdom of Evoan, who is about to embark on a treasure hunt to obtain their armor and weapon in order to defeat the virus COVID-19 for their Kingdom.

Through interactive experiments, questionnaires and concept videos, we hope that our audience are able to learn more about the importance of wearing masks and washing their hands with soap, as well as the scientific concepts behind them. Let’s all stay safe and stay strong in this long fight against COVID-19! 🙂

貧困家庭の食料不安と解決策のイノベーション The Issue of Food Insecurity for Needy Families and Innovative Solutions

貧困家庭の食料不安と解決策のイノベーション The Issue of Food Insecurity for Needy Families and Innovative Solutions

Description

This geNiUSbook is targeted at Japanese 5 and Japanese 6 students. The format of this geNiUSbook is inspired by the preparation work, assigned by our professors, prior to each Japanese Language class that we had attended. The main educational content in the geNiUSbook includes a video and a reading passage. Short quizzes are used to test the users’ understanding of the educational content. Interactive components like PollEv and Padlet are incorporated so that users can share their opinions and knowledge. Our team believes that the use of geNiUSbook for pre-class preparation work is more organised than what we had gone through – flipping through thick textbooks and receiving multiple emails regarding study materials.

Laplace Transform – Subtleties of Time-Shift Property

Laplace Transform - Subtleties of Time-Shift Property

Description

This geNiUSbook explains the time-shift (time-delay) property of Laplace Transform. Knowledge on Laplace Transform is fundamental to an engineering student as it is used in many areas such as mathematics, dynamics, control systems.
The time-shift (time-delay) property of Laplace Transform can be proven easily but sometimes it can be confusing, particularly when trying to use it for getting Laplace Transform for given function plots.
Hopefully this geNiUSbook will help students to get a better understanding of a particularly confusing property of Laplace Transform.

Community-Based Learning

Community-Based Learning

Description

This microsite gives an overview of what community-based learning entails and how NUS faculty members and students can integrate aspects of community-based learning into their academic modules.

Useful Linux Terminal Commands for Large Data Processing

Useful Linux Terminal Commands for Large Data Processing

Description

In this Sway, I explore useful Linux terminal commands that aid in processing large data files. I will show some basic information about the usefulness of terminal commands and a short tutorial using videos (currently from my local computer, but will be uploaded to youtube). Then, I will give a short example of how to utilize the useful commands by making a simple bash script to process files. The Sway will be useful for those working in Linux environments and wrangling with a lot of data.

Egg-ceptional Wonders!

Egg-ceptional Wonders!

Description

Welcome to Egg-ceptional Wonders! In this geNiUSbook, we will take you on an egg-citing and incredible journey to discover the amazing secrets in one of the world’s most versatile food: eggs! From the yellowish nutrient-dense yolk to the fragile outer shell of the egg, we are going to conduct fun experiments and see exactly what we can do to these components of the egg that we never thought we could. Read this e-book to gain new knowledge on eggs!

The Fate of Food

The Fate of Food

Description

Let’s taco-bout food! All living things need food to survive as food provides us with energy.

Food contains macronutrients such as carbohydrates (aka sugars), proteins and fats. What happens to food after it has been consumed? Does it turn directly into poo?

We hope you have an egg-cellent time learning about the human digestive system and food nutrition here!

In this interactive book, you will:

1) Understand the physical and chemical processes of digestion (look out for step-by-step simulation videos!)

2) Learn about the various food tests — namely the iodine test, Benedict’s test, Biuret test and emulsion test.

Let’s discover the fate of food today!

Earthquakes (Ground-Breaking Waves)

Earthquakes (Ground-Breaking Waves)

Description

Earthquakes are devastating natural disasters that destroy lives. Singapore is fortunate to have never experience one before, but that doesn’t mean we are free from its ripple effects. 

Being a rarely discussed topic here in Singapore, we hope to bring awareness about earthquake in this geNiUSbook. As readers read the book, they will see first hand accounts from earthquake survivors, understand the science behind the devastation and how human ingenuity can save lives through simple videos. At the end, we hope readers will not only learn more about earthquakes, but also appreciate the beauty and strength of human camaraderie in the face of disaster.
