About NEED More than 30 years ago, the NEED Project began as a one-day celebration of energy education when National Energy Education Day was recognized by a Joint Congressional Resolution. In the same year, President Jimmy Carter issued a Presidential Proclamation stressing the need for comprehensive energy education in our schools, a reduction of our dependence of fossil fuels, and increasing use of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency. Since its founding, NEED has kept its Kids Teaching Kids philosophy as a fundamental principle of NEED programming – encouraging students to explore, experiment and engage and encouraging teachers to embrace student leadership in the classroom. NEED trains and assists teachers in harnessing the energy of the classroom – the energy of students. NEED is expanding and evolving to best meet the needs of teachers and students – in the classroom and beyond. NEED students and teachers understand energy. The same principle is present in NEED training.
States of Matter Topics Atomic Bonding Interaction Potential States of Matter Dipole Description Watch different types of molecules form a solid, liquid, or gas. Add or remove heat and watch the phase change. Change the temperature or volume of a container and see a pressure-temperature diagram respond in real time. Sample Learning Goals Describe a molecular model for solids, liquids, and gases.Extend this model to phase changes.Describe how heating or cooling changes the behavior of the molecules.Describe how changing the volume can affect temperature, pressure, and state.Relate a pressure-temperature diagram to the behavior of molecules.Interpret graphs of interatomic potential.Describe how forces on atoms relate to the interaction potential.Describe the physical meaning of the parameters in the Lennard-Jones potential, and how this relates to the molecule behavior.

The Electromagnetic Spectrum - Index page The electromagnetic spectrum is more familiar to you than you might think. The microwave you use to heat your food and the cell phones you use are part of the Electromagnetic Spectrum. The light that our eyes can see is also part of the electromagnetic spectrum. This visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum consists of the colors that we see in a rainbow - from reds and oranges, through blues and purples. Each of these colors actually corresponds to a different wavelength of light. Slashdot Science How Do Solar Panels Work? share By Stephanie Chasteen and Rima Chaddha Posted 04.24.07 NOVA We've seen them for years on rooftops, atop highway warning signs, and elsewhere, but how many of us know how solar panels actually work? How do the photovoltaic cells that lie at the heart of them turn sunlight ("photo") into electricity ("voltaic")? This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program Saved By the Sun. Stephanie Chasteen is a postdoctoral fellow in physics at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Images (illustrations) Â© NOVA/WGBH Educational Foundation

Science of Cooking Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física.
