Curriculum, Rapid prototyping, Special needs students, Prototypes, and Manufacturing processes
The article focuses on starting a Fab Lab which provides digital fabrication curriculum for special needs students. Topics covered include background of Fab Labs from Intermediate Unit 1 (IU1) public educational service agency for schools and communities in southwestern Pennsylvania, curriculum of Don Martin, IU1 assistant executive director, for Colonial High School (CHS) in Grindstone, Pennsylvania and advice of Martin for educators wanting to start a Fab Lab for special needs students.

Data mining, Computers in medicine, Medical informatics, Heart disease diagnosis, Prototypes, and Cardiography
Mining for medical data poses different challenges compared with mining other types of data. The wide range of imaging modalities of medical data leads to data integration and compatibility issues. The analysis of imaging modalities is further complicated by the different format and attributes used by the different imaging equipment by different vendors. Human factors such as interest of adapting data mining into diagnosis and planning process raised the difficulty of engaging the users into the development of a practical and useful data miner. Requirement engineering technique prototyping further enhanced the engagement of users towards the data-miner. Data from different equipment and different vendors are also merged for efficient data analysis and subsequently charting and reporting. We have also successfully engaged the medical doctors into believing the data miner's capability after they reviewed and walkthrough the prototype. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
