Impossible Engineering - Season 3 LINK
Each episode focuses on one modern-day engineering achievement, with historical segments about the engineering pioneers who helped pave the way for present-day engineers. Each one-hour-long programme details how giant structures, record-beating buildings, and the world's most cutting-edge ships, trains, and planes are built and work using 3D graphics, archives, and specially shot footage.
Impossible Engineering - Season 3
The Perdido Oil Platform was the world's deepest production and drilling facility when production started in March 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico (second deepest now). It's one of the most advanced feats in modern engineering, producing 100,000 barrels of oil and 200 million cubic feet of gas each day. As a production hub for three fields, it's the first to separate oil and gas on the seafloor. This structure is as tall as the Eiffel tower and floats in some of the deepest waters in the world currently functioning in 7,800 feet of water. The three-deck topside sits atop the world's largest spar moored by nine two-mile long tethers to the seafloor.
Behind every seemingly impossible marvel of modern engineering is a cast of historic trailblazers who designed new building techniques, took risks on untested materials and revolutionised their field. Brand new series, Impossible Engineering, is a tribute to their achievements. Each episode details how giant structures, record-beating buildings, war ships and space crafts are built and work. As the show revels in these modern day creations, it also leaps back in time to recount the stories of the exceptional engineers whose technological advances made it all possible. How would they have ever existed without the historical work of their ancestors? Interviews with their great advocates bring engineering history to life and retell how these incredible accomplishments shaped the modern world.
The US military's most advanced hovercraft, Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC), represents the next generation of amphibious transport vehicles; using the latest in cutting-edge tech, it's designed to carry the heaviest cargo into locations that were previously impossible to reach.
The Queensferry Crossing in Scotland is the longest triple tower cable-stayed bridge in the world, and with record-breaking underwater foundations, it stretches the limits of engineering possibilities and marks a new age of superstructure construction.
The V-22 Osprey is a revolutionary feat of aviation engineering that combines the speed and range of an airplane with the landing versatility of a helicopter, allowing the US military to transport troops and cargo into seemingly impossible locations.
4/5 - BoxeR's ability to capitalize on a losing situation shows that he is not to be taken lightly. NaDa's entrenched drop was beautiful, creating a situation that was nearly impossible to escape. Very entertaining.
BoxeR 15cc to expand to the island and grabs both gas at the same time. The huge ramp is walled in with double engineering bay and a Barracks while the expo goes unscouted by NesTea. As the Overlord takes a peek at the island, NesTea makes a nydus worm below the ramp and his tech path is similar to the last game : roach/Baneling. The nydus network finishes just in time as Zerglings pour out to feed on defenseless SCVs. While delaying mining time, NesTea sneaks in the gold expo and begin his upgrades for centrifugal hooks and glial reconstitution. BoxeR is producing nothing but marines and getting their upgrades very quickly. As 2/2 upgrades start up, NesTea masses up a huge amount of roach/Baneling and sneaks them through the nydus network at BoxeR's natural. The Baneling rolls over the flimsy Bunker at BoxeR's ramp and Zerg swarms into the main. BoxeR pulls all his SCVs to take the Baneling hit but unfortunately, the splash damage from SCV and marine deaths explodes the nearby tech lab, taking the critical stim pack research with it. Having no way to micro from Banelings without stim, BoxeR types out. [13:29]
What if you could do the impossible? Engineers understand a lot of things, but the word impossible definitely isn't one of them. Through Concepts of Engineering and Technology, you'll learn how the momentum of science is continually propelling engineers in new directions towards a future full of insight and opportunity. This course explores the different branches of engineering and how problem-solving, sketching, collaboration, and experimentation can change the very fiber of our human lives. This ever-increasing knowledge can also lead to serious ethical dilemmas and the need to discuss where the boundaries of science lie (or even if there should be boundaries). By examining astounding engineering feats and complex ongoing issues, you, too, will begin to question whether the word impossible really exists. Note: This course has 8 units and is recommended to be taught over a single semester.
This two-semester course is focused on the concepts related to robots and how to construct a robot. Students will learn about the history and applications of robotics. Students will learn about the job opportunities and employability skills in the field of robotics. Students will also learn about the basic concepts of six simple machines, electricity, electronic circuits, Boolean algebra, magnetics, and their applicability to robotics. Students will apply safety procedures and construct a simple robot. Students will also learn about project management and engineering design process. Students will learn about the programming languages used in robotics. Students will create a simple robotic arm. Students will also construct a robot using programming. Student will learn about ethics and laws related to robotics. Students will also learn how to test and maintain a robot. Online discussions and unit activities require students to develop and apply critical thinking skills, while the included games appeal to a variety of learning styles and keep students engaged. Required lab materials note: This course contains hands-on labs that employ relatively-common household materials to provide a valuable laboratory experience. Please refer to the Student Syllabus or Teacher's Guide for a detailed list of required lab materials and options for purchasing kits.
Whether you are watching a famous athlete make an unbelievable play or witnessing a sensational singing performance, the world of sports and entertainment is never boring. Although it may seem impossible for you to be a part of this glittery world, it's not! The Sports and Entertainment Marketing field offers careers that combine entertainment with traditional marketing, but with a whole lot more glamour. Explore basic marketing principles while delving deeper into the multi billion dollar sports and entertainment industry. Learn how professional athletes, sports teams, and famous entertainers are marketed as commodities and how the savvy people who handle these deals can become very successful. This course will show you exactly how things work behind the scenes of a major entertainment event and how you can be part of the act. Note: This course has 10 units and is recommended to be taught over 2 semesters, but can be accelerated to be completed within a single semester if desired.
In French 1A, they will be introduced to several common situations in which people communicate, such as exchanging names and greetings, describing people by physical and personality traits, and describing family members and aspects of their social life. They will start with basic sentence structures and grammatical tools, and they will communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in French as they internalize new vocabulary and grammar. Students will also learn about some regions of the French-speaking world that the central characters of each unit are visiting. Students will build on this semester's work as they advance in their French studies: everything that they learn about a language and the cultures in which it is spoken will serve as a foundation for further learning. In French 1B, students will be introduced to several common situations in which people describe how to earn, save, and manage money, modes of urban transportation, various seasons and the associated weather conditions, food, clothes, and activities. They will also describe various art forms, plays, concerts, and movies. Students will discuss health and well-being, and travel and tourism. They will build on what they learned in the French 1A course and communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in French as they internalize new vocabulary and grammar.
