Sustaining Places is a collaborative resource project from the Museum Studies Program at the University of Delaware and the Tri-State Coalition of Historic Places. This site is supported by a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services’ 21st Century Museum Professionals Program. This website collects examples of good ideas and best practices for small historical organizations. The content is produced by and/or curated by our graduate students.
The Colored Conventions team has developed a research-based curriculum, Colored Conventions in a Box, that introduces faculty, students, and public audiences to teaching the nineteenth-century colored conventions movement and Black activism through research, writing and visual mapping. We are committed to producing educational resources that encourage extensive interrogation of themes and debates that arise in the convention minutes. With attention to scholarly interpretation and presentation, faculty and graduate scholars and librarians have curated sample writing assignments, research guides and engaging educational activities that supplement biographies, historical documents, and digital mapping exhibitions housed on the site. These materials may be used for teaching or learning more about the colored conventions movement in educational settings.
Learn how to read an architect’s scale. Tutorial includes instruction, self-tests, a demonstration and a simulated scale with practice lines to measure. Immediate feedback allows students to learn at their own pace, and the practice area provides a way to continue drawing and measuring lines for as long as is necessary.
Primary Audience: Design Students who need to use an architect’s rule
This simulation allows students to build a virtual circuit using resistors and batteries from the file drawers. Users can also measure resistance, voltage and current by clicking on any element within the completed circuit. A great way to explore.

Marbles bounce down an array of pegs. The resulting binomial distribution is displayed graphically in real time. A control panel allows the size of the array, and the probability of a bounce to the right to be varied.
