The small blue balls contain advanced wireless sensor equipment that can measure temperatures in stacks of agricultural biomass, and tell the farmer if the temperature rises. In this way, the farmer gets an early warning of the start of any rotting.

New measuring equipment helps farmers

Thanks to AU research and to development work by the firm of WEBSTECH, farmers can now prevent their stacks of grain, silage and feed from rotting. The secret lies in small balls that measure temperatures within the stack, and communicate the information to the farmer.

Water significantly speeds up the chemical processes that hydrogen is involved in – a discovery that can benefit a number of industries working with nanotechnology. The scientists responsible for the study include researchers at the Interdisciplinary…

It is, among other things, clickers – like this one – that can contribute to create more active teaching. The teacher can ask students questions, which they then answer using their clicker. That way, the teacher can make sure that the students profit as much as possible from the teaching, and easily notice if something needs to be clarified. At the symposium, “Clickers, Peer Instruction and the Inverted Classroom”, leading researchers within the field will share their knowledge about and experiences with Active Learning.
The acknowledge Professor of Physics, Eric Mazur from Harvard University, visits Aarhus University in correlation with the symposium. He has more than 20 years of experience with research in and development of Active Learning in the shape of peer instruction. 
It is possible at the symposium to meet Professor and Dean of Learning and Teaching, Simon Bates, from University of Edinburgh.
