Understanding Science. Wonderful World of Wasps - Web Comic. Wasps may not be as big as lions or bears, but these insects are among the most successful predators on Earth!

Wonderful World of Wasps - Web Comic

Different wasps species have different ways of preying on other animals. Some wasps, called parasitoids, lay their eggs in the bodies of live insects (hosts). As the larva grows, it feeds on the host from the inside out! But humans have little to fear. Wasps are uninterested in people unless their nests are threatened.

Wonderful World of Wasps - Carly's Adventures in Wasp Land (Comic)

I study a group of insects called Hymenoptera, which includes ants, bees, and wasps. My specialty is parasitic wasps, which are wasps that lay their eggs on, or inside, the bodies of other insects (generally caterpillars or larval beetles). The "host" insect's body becomes food for the growing larva. This process, when it kills the host, is referred to as parasitoidism. I study both the physical features (known as "morphology"), as well as the DNA, of these wasps to understand how they have evolved. I also love to draw!

The Energy Story - Introduction

We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy powers machinery in factories and tractors on a farm. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day.

Under en världsomsegling insåg Charles Darwin hur livet på jorden hade utvecklats.

Allt om Historia

Hans teori om evolutionen var lika enkel som genial, men kastade samtidigt Bibelns skapelseberättelse över ända och mötte hårt motstånd. Text: Anna Larsdotter I augusti 1831 fick Charles Darwin ett brev som skulle förändra hans liv. Avsändare var hans vän John Stevens Henslow, professor i botanik i Cambridge. Av Henslow hade Darwin lärt sig massor om sitt stora intresse: djur och växter.

I brevet frågade Henslow om Darwin ville följa med på en forskningsseglats runt jorden. Så gav sig Charles Robert Darwin den 27 december 1831 av på sitt livs resa. Darwin växte upp med en äldre bror och fyra systrar. Charles Darwin var inte av riktigt samma skrot och korn som sin far och farfar. Han hade lärt sig att stoppa upp djur och byggt upp en imponerande samling skalbaggar.

Darwin fascinerades av de arter han hittade på ögruppen. Darwins anteckningar från resan med Beagle var fyllda av entusiastiska utrop. What is Evolution? National Geographic's Great Nature Project.

7 Free iPad Apps for Science Lessons

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. GoREACT is a free iPad app from the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. Powers of Minus Ten: Bone is a neat iPad app for biology students. Virtual Heart is a free iPad app that allows users to take a closer look at how the human heart functions. 3D Brain is a free iPad app that features a model of the human brain. he app provides a three dimensional model of the human brain that students can rotate.

5 Fun Science Experiments for Kids

Ok, maybe you did, but if you're not sure where to start, we've got five really fun experiments that demonstrate the scientific principles of buoyancy, surface tension, density, chemical reaction and non-Newtonian fluid. Best of all, families can do these easy experiments with common, household items. Sesame Street's fuzzy, blue scientist Grover stopped by the #5facts studio to teach us a few things about the scientific method.

Introducing DIY We started building DIY a few... We started building DIY a few months ago and now we’re sharing the first thing we’ve made. This is a company that we hope to spend decades crafting, but it’s important for us to do it out in the open, bit by bit, to encourage our community of kids and parents to share feedback with us continuously.

From Zach’s experience making Vimeo, we understand that this sort of culture fosters collaboration and admiration between a company and its community, and ultimately leads to something that is loved. Our ambition is for DIY to be the first app and online community in every kid’s life. It’s what we wish we had when we were young, and what we’ll give to our kids. Today we’re releasing a tool to let kids collect everything they make as they grow up.

We’ve all seen how kids can be like little MacGyvers. We’re looking to you parents as partners to make it all work. Here’s how it works today: Kids are ready for this. PS.

Winter StormsHow do winter storms form?

Winter storms derive their energy from the clash of two air masses of different temperatures and moisture levels. Winter storms usually form when an air mass of cold, dry, Canadian air moves south and interacts with a warm, moist air mass moving north from the Gulf of Mexico. The point where these two air masses meet is called a front. If cold air advances and pushes away the warm air, it forms a cold front. When warm air advances, it rides up over the denser, cold air mass to form a warm front. How is snow formed? How do blizzards form? What are snowflakes? DragonflyTV . Episodes . Matter and Motion.
