Discovery of the Electron

Our modern understanding of the atom has a story that begins in the 4th century B.C.E., around the time of Aristotle. See how, over 2000 years later, the electron was discovered. See a beam of electrons, called a cathode ray, in a cathode ray tube, the ancestor to the television.

Strengthening Higher Education Access in Malawi Activity (SHEAMA) funded by USAID

SHEAMA is a 4-year, USAID funded activity that started in December 2018. SHEAMA is being implemented by Arizona State University (ASU) with its consortium partners that include Overseas Strategic Consulting and Malawi’s five public universities i.e. MZUNI; LUANAR; Chancellor College, Polytechnic and MUST; and local industries. SHEAMA endeavors to develop a viable and effective ODL model with Malawian universities that is economically sustainable, feasible, replicable and appropriate for Malawi. The goal of SHEAMA is to increase Malawi’s skilled and employable workforce—especially adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) and vulnerable young men.

Ask An Anthropologist! "Try it" Activity—Thumbs Down!

Try this easy at-home activity to test why your opposable thumbs are so important to humans! Try to build with Legos using only your fingers and no thumbs! Our fingers let us do many things easily and precisely. We can get food, make tools, and play with toys. Before human hands evolved to their modern form, our hominin ancestors began walking upright. This left their arms and hands free to carry things and make tools. Tools provided our ancestors with a great advantage, and so human hands—and brains—continued to evolve to allow tool use.

Goldenrods Deserve a Place in Your Garden

In New England, Autumn often means crisp mornings, fresh squeezed apple cider, piping hot cinnamon donuts and pumpkin patches. Thriving in the background of this scene—ubiquitous, but often overlooked—are goldenrods. Their brilliant yellow spires add color to tired roadways, fields, and woodlands. There are more than 100 different species of goldenrod and nine grow in Arizona. Every last one of them is a pollinator powerhouse, providing nectar and pollen. From June through October they bloom, cheering up farm fields, fences, and our gardens, if we allow them space. Learn about this incredible plant and all the wildlife it supports.

Epidemics as Systems!

When the media reports on COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2, do you ever hear about “R-naught” (R0)? You might have heard what this number represents, but where does it come from? Epidemiologists view the spread of disease through a population as the output of a system of interactions between individuals. Just like “temperature” helps determine the speed a gas moves through a room without keeping track of every molecule of that gas, ”R0” helps determine the speed of disease spread through a population. Here we describe the systems thinking behind epidemics and give an idea of how to better understand complex systems.

Emerging Minds Lab

Take a tour of our lab space! In our lab, we investigate how infants and young children learn about the world around them. We look at: (1) how children's early curiosity supports their thinking and reasoning; (2) what role the social and cultural environment plays in shaping early learning; and (3) how children's extraordinary capacity for learning differs from other closely related species. To conduct this work, we use a variety of methodological approaches (e.g. behavioral experiments, naturalistic observations, looking-based paradigms) across a range of species, ages, and diverse cultural groups.

How does a solar cell work?

Solar energy is a renewable free source of energy that is entirely sustainable and inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels that are finite. Moreover, Fossil fuels produce large quantities of CO2 when burned. Carbon emissions trap heat in the atmosphere and lead to climate change. In the United States, the burning of fossil fuels, particularly for the power and transportation sectors, accounts for about three-quarters of our carbon emissions. Solar panels convert the sun’s light into usable electrical energy. We are going to explain how a semiconductor p-n junctions works and converts energy of photons into electricity.

Laura Tohe: Armed with Our Language, We Went to War—The Navajo Code Talkers

During WWII, a select group of young Navajo men devised a secret code using their language. The code was never broken. A cloak of secrecy hung over the Code Talkers' service until the code was declassified in 1968; the men were finally honored for their military contributions in 1982. In this presentation from November 10, 2015, Arizona State University Professor Laura Tohe, a native speaker of Navajo and daughter of a Code Talker, discussed the Code Talkers’ cultural background, how the code was devised and used, and how Navajo spiritual beliefs were used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Tipping Points!

People talk about “tipping points” all the time, but what are they? Where do they come from? And are the things people call “tipping points” actually tipping points? Understanding these phenomena is critical for understanding sustainability and stability in human socio-techno-ecological systems. In this mini-tutorial, we discuss what “tipping points” are and how they emerge from complex systems of interactions we might think we understand at a small scale but might fail to understand at a large scale.

What is chaos? How is it different from randomness?

Science develops models that help us make sense of the patterns we see in the world. Without those models, the world appears to be random – a product of chance. But as we gain knowledge, we learn that there are patterns, and knowledge of those patterns makes the world seem less random and more deterministic. But what if there were systems that behaved randomly even if you knew everything about how the system works? These are special kinds of complex systems that are said to be chaotic. Here we explore how chaos is the apparent randomness from ordered complex systems.
