The rare-earth mineral mine in Mountain Pass, Calif., run by Molycorp. (Credit: Jay Greene/CNET) MOUNTAIN PASS, Calif. -- About 60 miles southwest of Las Vegas, in a mine some 500 feet deep, the beginnings of an iPhone come to life. But the sleek, shiny iPhone is far, far removed from the rocks pulled out of this giant hole, which looks like a deep crater on the moon. A very deep crater.
In Cell Command, students embark on a series of exciting missions aboard a microscopic "cell ship." At the outset, students operate a single station (e.g., the "ribosome station"), but eventually command all the ship's functions (e.g., duplication, membrane, mitochondria, golgi complex) simultaneously. Successfully completing missions (e.g., mitigating the "cellular crises" that emerge when wounds need healing or muscles need flexing) earns "cell experience" that allows students to upgrade their cell ship, their skills as commander, and the skills of their crew.

This song for teaching the periodic table of elements offers basic information about the first eighteen elements with names. Students will learn names, atomic symbols, and numbers as well as general information about elements and how they are organized. For students wondering how to memorize the periodic table of elements, this song is the perfect start. The accompanying detailed, printable periodic table worksheets and games enhance the learning experience.
Teach With Cartoons is a middle school program covering 6th, 7th and 8th grade science. The science program is aligned with national standards, and covers a realm of learning abilities and multiple intelligences. I really like this 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science curriculum because it is flexible enough to provide supplemental support for all types of learners, including, but not limited to: special needs, ESL, mainstream students and those who are also home-schooled.

The Game of Naming What's in What You Eat Getting the most out of what you eat takes knowing what's in your food. While packaged and prepared food can save time, it takes a lot of chemistry to keep those items edible on the long trip from the factory to your face.
The development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is a collaboration between the NSTA , the National Research Council , the American Association for the Advancement of Science , and Achieve . In 2009, the National Research Council (NRC) began the development of a Framework for K-12 Science Education with a committee of 18 nationally/internationally known science experts. The first draft Framework was released in July 2010; The final version of the Framework was released in March 2012.
