Five-Minute Film Festival: The Science of Sports

I'm excited to have Edutopia's new Web Video Strategy Coordinator, Keyana Stevens, guest curating today's Five-Minute Film Festival. You may be seeing more of Keyana in this space moving forward, I'm sure you'll love her picks as much as I do! All the attention around the World Cup last month got me thinking: sports offers a perfect opportunity to explore scientific concepts like force, motion, potential energy, velocity, and torque. Use these videos to inspire your students to look beyond the surface of the game's latest score and find out why a ball bounces, how physics keeps a bike upright, and how a football slices through the air to travel long distances.

Science Fair Project Ideas

Well, hopefully this post will have you covered. These twelve science experiments encourage children to test, tinker with, experiment, hypothesize, and evaluate various properties and phenomena. Most of our favorite science experiments involve everyday, household supplies because they’re easy to come by and relatively safe for children to use. You’ll see that these science fair project ideas use materials like gummy bears, dish soap, food coloring, chocolate syrup, sand, lemons, eggs, celery, oil, Alka Seltzer, vinegar, plastic bags, pencils, salt, cotton balls, seeds, and candy.

Seven Free Science Apps for iPads

My hosts asked for a list of some science apps that their middle school and high school students can use. This is part of the list that has free apps. The Bill Nye The Science Guy iPad app is a free iPad app on which students can watch Bill Nye videos, play games, and discover kitchen table science experiments to do at home with their parents. The app is beautifully designed. Students enter the app by “scanning” their thumbprints. GoREACT is a free iPad app from the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.

10 next-generation science apps for education - eClassroom News

With these 10 next-generation science apps for education, you’ll find an array of apps that not only use HD-quality visual representations, but also integrate the newest requirements in science standards. From an app designed specifically by a tech-savvy science teacher eager to share multimedia lessons on life sciences, to an app that provides Kindergarteners with an introduction to physical science, these apps are some of the most current (and most vetted) for students and teachers interested in exploring the world science opens up, all through mobile technology.

This is another engaging after school activity that we used in our Force and Motion science club.

Science Gal: Creating Catapults

It would be easy to add to your existing curriculum; especially if you teach the FOSS Variables kit. In the Variables Kit, there are four problems for students to explore and test variable - pendulums, penny boats, planes and flippers. Flippers are really catapults that you can change the height of the object's trajectory path by changing the length of the flipper.

Another great FREE game from FOSS is the Blasto Game. This goes right along with the idea of changing variables to further your flight.

Roller Coaster Game

This simulator is designed for people who want to design their own thrilling coaster and educators who want to use a cool activity to simulate the application of physics by using an exciting interactive tool and access to a wonderful reference source. It is your mission to become a roller coaster designer so that you can achieve maximum thrills and chills without crashing or flying off the track (unless that’s how you like your coaster to work!).

Sci. Edheads - Activate Your Mind! The Doppler Effect on a Train. Galileo Drops the Ball - Virtual Experiment. In around 1590 Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) climbed up the Leaning Tower of Pisa and dropped some balls to the ground.

Galileo Drops the Ball - Virtual Experiment

Two balls of different masses, but of similar shape and density that were released together hit the ground at the same time. Until then it was commonly believed that heavy things fall faster than light things. Many people still believe this, and casual observation of everyday phenomena often does tend to confirm this view. If you drop a brick and a feather at the same time the brick will probably hit the ground first. But this is because of differences in the amount of friction between these objects and the air around them, not because their masses are different.

Galileo’s discovery is important in understanding how parachutes work. Click on the image to the left to try Galileo’s experiment for yourself. Find out more about Galileo Galilei.

Motion makes the world go 'round. Motion makes the moon go 'round too. In fact, motion makes lots of things go. When we think of motion we often think of cars, bicycles, kids running, basketballs bouncing and airplanes flying. But motion is so much more. Motion is important to our lives and impacts so many things that we do. Motion: Forces. Forces are a big part of physics. Physicists devote a lot of time to the study of forces that are found everywhere in the universe. The forces could be big, such as the pull of a star on a planet. The forces could also be very small, such as the pull of a nucleus on an electron.

Forces are acting everywhere in the universe at all times. Solar System Tour from the sun to pluto. StudyJams. Schools Science Clips - Ages 10-11. Science Fun. HowStuffWorks "Science".

The plants grow up to 3 feet in height with tiny flowers clustered in small flat-topped umbels. T. arvensis fruit (schizocarp) measure 4-6mm and usually hold 2-4 individual seeds (mericarps). The schizocarp is covered with velco-like appendages which attach to clothing and fur allowing them to hitch a ride to new terrain. This sample was air dried, mounted onto an aluminum stub and sputter coated with gold. The image shows one of the seeds within the schizocarp and affords a better appreciation for their cunning hitch-hiking techniques. Spot the rock - Identifying rock types. Tremors of the Big Bang: First direct evidence of cosmic inflation. Almost 14 billion years ago, the universe we inhabit burst into existence in an extraordinary event that initiated the Big Bang.

In the first fleeting fraction of a second, the universe expanded exponentially, stretching far beyond the view of our best telescopes. All this, of course, was just theory. Researchers from the BICEP2 collaboration today announced the first direct evidence for this cosmic inflation. Their data also represent the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time. National Science Teachers Association. Exploratorium: the museum of science, art and human perception.
