    Dr Jorge Paiva, eminent scientist and Portuguese botanist, was principal investigator in the Department of Botany, University of Coimbra, where he also taught. He worked for three years in London at Kew Gardens and at the British Museum of Natural History. Dr Paiva is well known for his unambiguous defence of the environment, and is an active member of various associations and national and international committees. The garden was planned in 1985, started in 1986 and is maintained by a team of teachers at the School. It is a garden of woody plants indigenous to Portugal (Continent), meaning, Portuguese trees, shrubs and subshrubs. There are more than 1650 specimens of about 250 native taxa. The garden, and this talk about it, is organized according to the natural phytogeographic areas of Portugal. The garden is not only a teaching tool, but also a practical demonstration for Environmental Education, so the pupils of the School get to know the native plants, observing them in flower and fruit. As Dr Paiva explains, his English is not perfect and there is some audience participation during the talk which helps him tell the story. With grateful thanks to the teachers of the Secondary School of Barcelos – João Lourenço, Gloria Barbosa, António Oliveira & Armanda Figueiredo Escola Secundária de Barcelos, Av. João Paulo II, Apartado 166, 470-304 Barcelos.

      Friends sixth grade students recently completed the "Kidwind Challenge" (kidwind.org) - a culmination of the sixth grade science study of energy resources, including the promise and limitations of wind energy as a sustainable source of energy in the United States. The goals of the Kidwind Challenge include: - Apply the STEM design process to solve a real world energy crisis. - Design a functional wind turbine based on knowledge of wind energy. - Create a wind turbine and test its performance. - Compete against peers for the most creative and functional turbine. This year's designs were exceptional and students were rewarded not only for the amount of volts the turbines were able to produce, but also for the creativity and craftsmanship of their design. The final product required from each group was to demonstrate their progress throughout the design process in the form of a presentation. This video is one example.

                      At Bird Island near Lambert's Bay on the West Coast of Southern Africa, 20 000 Cape Gannet crowd into a Seabird City. These birds have developed behavioural mechanisms to enable them to live in such close proximity, while at the same time avoiding serious conflict. In real time their behaviours happen almost too quickly to watch. Here you can watch their, often graceful but sometimes comic, actions slowed down to 200 frames per second.
