Engineering in the Modern World

Look at the form of a trunnion bascule bridge for a moment and you will realize it is a unique and wonderful thing. Engineered structures like this, and thousands of others, represent the best in human ingenuity and discovery. Engineering in the Modern World, a digital collection presented by the Princeton University Digital Library, brings together three remarkable items that document some of these achievements. First up is the 1838 work, "Life of Thomas Telford, Civil Engineer." This tome tells the story of the celebrated Scottish engineer who worked on dozens of roads and bridges throughout the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The next item is "A History of the St. Louis Bridge," which tells the complete tale of this remarkable structure. Finished in 1874, the combined road and railway bridge still serves the area today, connecting St. Louis to East St. Louis, Illinois. The last item here was created by the Port Authority of New York in 1928 to tell the story of the Bayonne Bridge. It's a remarkable work, as well, and the photos and illustrations contained within are an engineering historian's dream. [KMG]

Florence Knoll Bassett Papers, 1932-2000

Born in 1917, Florence Knoll Bassett is an American architect and furniture designer whose impressive resume includes work with leaders of the Bauhaus movement as well as numerous exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art during the 1950s. She became quite well known for her reinvention of the modern office space, with many interior designers, architects, and others becoming inspired by her work over the decades. This digital collection from the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art brings together over 1,280 items, including letters, drawings, sketches, designs, photographs, and more. Visitors will find that the material has been divided into seven series ranging from Biographical Material to Awards. Additionally, the search engine provides an effortless way to search through all of the materials . Overall, it's an amazing look at the career of this modernist pioneer.

Understanding Science: Teaching Resources

The world of science is diverse and fascinating, but traditional methods of teaching sometimes don't do it justice. This site from the University of California helps teachers help their students become fascinated by the process of scientific discovery. The site contains several "teachers' lounges" where educators can share information, resources, and also learn about new pedagogical developments and innovations. Visitors shouldn't miss the Guide to Understanding Science 101, which includes answers to questions like What is science? and so on. Moving on, the site also contains other areas, including Correcting Misconceptions, Teaching Tools, and Conceptual Framework, which helps educators identify age-appropriate learning goals. [KMG]
