Scientists and teachers have combined to develop a simple spreadsheet-based method of teaching aerodynamic drag to 14 and 15 year olds. By measuring the speed of one of their classmates riding a bike and taking a photo in ...
Scientists have developed a new method to model heat wave magnitude that takes both the duration and the intensity of the heat wave into account.
Scientists have developed a graphene based microphone nearly 32 times more sensitive than microphones of standard nickel-based construction.
Scientists at the University of Auckland have developed a soft, flexible, stretchable keyboard using a type of rubber known as a dielectric elastomer.
A mathematics student has worked out the secrets of how chocolate behaves in a chocolate fountain, answering the age-old question of why the falling 'curtain' of chocolate surprisingly pulls inwards rather than going straight ...
Scientists have developed a 3-D printing method capable of producing highly uniform 'blocks' of embryonic stem cells
These cells – capable of generating all cell types in the body – could be used as the 'lego bricks' to build tissue constructs, larger structures of tissues, and potentially even micro-organs.
Researchers working in the United States have demonstrated a technique that may enable real-time, in-flight detection of hypoxia in pilots.
Is freshwater supply more dependent on good governance than geography? Scientists have analysed 19 different characteristics critical to water supply management in 119 low per capita income countries and found that vulnerability ...
Scientists have developed a hand-held optical scanner with the potential to offer breast cancer imaging in real time. The results are reported today, Oct. 23, 2015, in the journal Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express.
Scientists have projected that the onset of spring plant growth will shift by a median of three weeks earlier over the next century, as a result of rising global temperatures.
