SUNY-Oneonta Noyce Scholars in Science Education Program
Prepare, place and support qualified
science teachers in high need rural and urban schools. Noyce Scholars receive scholarships
of at least $20,000 (Planned) for tuition, fees, books, on-campus living expenses, etc. for their Junior and Senior years! Scholarship recipients must commit
to teach science in high needs rural or urban schools for 4-years.
Video Techniques in Physics Teaching
In physics classes, videos have been used to augment or replace traditional laboratory and demonstration equipment in the study of kinematics; dynamics; vibrations and waves; and electricity and magnetism. This presentation focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of using videos to teach physics, and gives an overview of the technical challenges.
An Analysis of Initial Velocity Error in Atwood's Machine
Paul A. French and Rebecca Shea
Atwood's Machine has traditionally been used in introductory physics classes to introduce and reinforce the concepts of gravity, uniform acceleration, and Newton's laws of motion.
The North East CIDR Array (NECA): A Chain of Ionospheric Tomography Receivers for Studying the Equatorward Edge of the Auroral Oval and the Mid-latitude Trough
Hugh A. Gallagher
The North East CIDR Array makes observations of total electron content (TEC) and the rate of TEC (ROT) fluctuations obtained from VHF and UHF beacons on low-Earth-orbiting satellites. This poster presents examples of TEC, ROT and the ROT power spectra observed by the Array. These observations will be compared with large scale features in the TEC determined by the global positioning system, or GPS, network.
Observation of Extraordinary Hall Effect in Cu-Ni Thin Films
In this ongoing study we focus on the study of the Hall Effect when a metal such as Copper is doped with small amounts of magnetic impurities such as Nickel. We have produced thin films with varying Ni concentration, developed and constructed apparatus for the experiment, and observed and recorded the Hall Voltage in relationship to different currents and magnetic fields.
CN Abundances and Radial Distributions in a Sample of Eight Galactic Globular Clusters
Standard formation models predict that globular clusters should display little star-to-star variations in their elemental abundances. Observations over the past 30 years, however, have continually shown this not to be the case. For clusters of moderate and high metallicity, significant scatter in light element abundances, particularly CN molecular abundances, is seen everywhere on the RGB, sometimes even down to the MS. These types of variations aren't expected in a single population until the point on the RGB where the convective envelope dredges up CNO-processed material from the hydrogen burning shell. This suggests some form of enrichment within the cluster prior to, or shortly after, formation.
