Science >> Physics >> AstronomyWhat is a black hole? Black holes are one of the most mysterious and powerful forces in the universe. A black hole is where gravity has become so strong that nothing around it can escape, not even light.

The mass of a black hole is so compact, or dense, that the force of gravity is too strong for even light to escape. Can we see them? Black holes are truly invisible. How are they formed? Black holes are formed when giant stars explode at the end of their lifecycle. Event Horizon There is a special boundary around a black hole called an event horizon. Black hole absorbing light Who discovered the black hole?

The idea of the black hole was first proposed by two different scientists in the 18th century: John Michell and Pierre-Simon Laplace. Fun Facts about black holes Black holes can have the mass of several million suns. More Astronomy Subjects Science >> Physics >> Astronomy. Le corps humain. Le corps humain. Peut-on tromper nos sens ? - Quand la cuisine nous trompe ! Que serait le goût sans la vue, la mémoire, la senteur, le plaisir ? Lorsqu’on parle du goût, on ne pense pas toujours à l’ensemble des sensations qui permettent d’identifier ce que l’on mange.

L’aspect, l’odeur, la saveur, l’arôme, la texture … sont autant de paramètres qui participent à l’appréciation d’un aliment. 1.Le goût. Lors de la mise en bouche, certaines molécules sont solubilisées par la salive qui va alors recouvrir la langue. Puisque la langue est recouverte de papilles gustatives, la salive « inonde » les bourgeons du goût présents dans les papilles. Les bourgeons sont responsables de l’identification du goût d’un aliment dans le système gustatif des mammifères comme l’est la muqueuse olfactive dans la perception des odeurs.

Il existe différentes formes de papilles, il y a les fongiformes plutôt situées sur le bout de la langue, les filiformes qui sont centrées, les foliées sur les bords et les caliciformes tapissants le fond de la langue. 2. 3.

Earth & Space Science. Essential Science for Teachers Exploring topics that range from soil to the solar system, Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science provides participants the opportunity to increase their science content knowledge and develop new understandings of how this content connects to K - 6 classrooms. The Geologic Timeline "Which came first, the chicken or the egg? " is an age-old question. But, what about things that happened long before there were chickens OR eggs? For Further Information When you see the following icon in the video, click at left for "A Closer Look" This course is composed of eight sessions, each with a one-hour video program addressing a topic area in Earth and Space science that emphasizes the science content that is likely to be part of any elementary school science curriculum.

Links:College of Geology in Chile (en Espanol) The Nature of Science (NOS) There is a growing recognition among teachers that we need to teach the "Nature of Science" (NOS). Ideally, this should begin in the primary grades and extend all the way through university. Teaching about the nature of science should not be restricted to students who major in science.

Every student should learn about the nature of science. This is not controversial. I'm not aware of anything in the recent pedagogical literature that argues against teaching the nature of science. What's controversial is how to describe what science is all about. One of the most important issues is the "Demarcation Problem. " I've written extensively about this controversy. John Wilkins discusses the "Demarcation Problem"Territorial demarcation and the meaning of scienceScience Doesn't Have All the Answers but Does It Have All the Questions?

Survival Exercise Scenarios - Description of a Group Dynamics Team Building Exercise.

Overview - Group Survival Scenario Exercise A classic group communication and decision making exercise, with many variations. Works for a wide variety of ages and purposes, indoors or outdoors. Consensus can be hard to reach, however, set the aim for all participants to at least partially agree to each ranking on their final list. Encourage groups to complete the task without the use of tactics such as voting, trading in or averaging. Watch for participants avoiding conflict or changing their minds simply to come to agreement. Scenario Type 1: Choose Survival Equipment Your plane crashed...your group needs to choose the 12 most useful items to survive... Choose / rank equipment items in terms of their relative survival value: Participants choose/rank the items individually Discuss choices/rankings in small group and come to a group consensus Score answers against "expert" opinion Possible scenarios: Lost at sea or island survival (shipwreck) Desert (plane crash) Space or Moon Variations.

But, have you ever thought about changing your family game night to a Family STEM Night? There are plenty of activities that require participants to think like an engineer or a scientist to identify and solve problems. Families can work together to use the engineering design process just as STEMists do with their Groovy Lab in a Box. There is no better way to learn than to learn while having fun! Invite the whole family—grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles! Check out these five family fun STEM activities you can do at home. Build a Card Tower Each family member, or family team, will design and construct a tower on a flat surface like a table or a floor, using only index cards, masking tape and scissors.

Stacking Cups Another fabulous team-based STEM activity for any age is cup stacking with rubber bands. Sock Walk Have each family member grab a sock and place it over one shoe.

As with most topics in human genetics, blood type is more complicated than it appears on the surface. There are other human blood groups that are less common than the ABO blood group. For example, the Bombay Phenotype is a recessive condition in which the precursor of the A or B antigen, the H antigen, is not made. It occurs in about 1 in 10,000 people in India and 1 in million people in Europe. Even though someone inherits the alleles for an A or a B antigen, they can’t make these antigens if they don’t have the instructions on HOW to make them.

PROFILES_Biology_TeachersGuide_en. Human body. The entire structure of a human being The study of the human body involves anatomy, physiology, histology and embryology. The body varies anatomically in known ways. Physiology focuses on the systems and organs of the human body and their functions. Many systems and mechanisms interact in order to maintain homeostasis, with safe levels of substances such as sugar and oxygen in the blood. The body is studied by health professionals, physiologists, anatomists, and by artists to assist them in their work. Composition[edit] Elements of the human body by mass.

The human body is composed of elements including hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, calcium and phosphorus.[1] These elements reside in trillions of cells and non-cellular components of the body. The adult male body is about 60% water for a total water content of some 42 litres.
