Follow us as we find out how our everyday online shopping impacts ocean acidification, and uncover the scientific methodologies as well as technologies that help us study the impacts of ocean acidification.
Streaming that new movie or that new series on Netflix might be more harmful than you think. In this video, we tackle the evident and clear lack of awareness of how we as individuals can impact and harm the ocean from a simple act we do in our everyday lives. Follow us, as we start on this journey of a time before the internet, to the development of the internet, to how our data-driven lives in a increasingly digital era affect the ocean and the world around us today
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! 🙂
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!
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!
This is video was created to facilitate anaesthesia resident learning during their posting to cardiac anaesthesia. It details the principles of cardiopulmonary bypass and takes the student through the steps required to initiate, maintain and separate the patient from cardiopulmonary bypass during heart surgery.
Real estate is believed to be one of the best forms of investment. Do you dream of purchasing your own property? One day you may do so, or you may co-own it with your spouse, or someone else. What are the legal aspects of these?
In this video, we deal with the main steps involved in the purchase of completed private property in Singapore, and the different forms of Co-ownership.
Through a Case Study charting the journey of a young married couple – Amos and Eileen – we highlight the legal principles relevant to these matters. We conclude with how matrimonial property may be divided upon separation or divorce.
This video was produced by a team from the Department of Real Estate, NUS Business School. The team comprised Jonathan Lim, Rachel Tan, Maple Ee and Kong Ee Yern, under the direction of their Advisor, Associate Professor (Dr) Alice Christudason.
In Interactive SICP JS, the learner can click on programs with dark background. The program becomes editable and runnable on the spot. The learner can experiment with the program, and continue in the text without disturbing their reading experience.
Technical background: SICP JS is an open-source project housed in the GitHub repository
The textbook content is written in XML. Our Interactive SICP JS consists of two components:
* web-based frontend written in TypeScript using React.JS, js-slang, and MathJax
Interactive SICP JS augments the learner’s textbook experience with interactive programming features, and is designed to be used along with the traditional PDF version of SICP JS, which is available here: https://source-academy.github.io/sicp/sicpjs.pdf
