Teacher Resources Teacher Programs JLab Science Activities for Teachers (JSAT) - An afternoon science program for 5th, 6th and 8th grade teachers. [Program Dates: September 2016 - May 2017] Physical Science Investigation - Jefferson Lab (PSI: JLab) - A week long summer program for teachers! [Application Deadline: June 30th, 2016] Molecular Workbench - Database Molecular Workbench offers interactive, visual simulations and activities that have been widely used in science teaching for students of all ages. Our database is designed to provide teachers and students with easy access to our model-based activities. The activities are derived largely, but not entirely, from projects of the Concord Consortium sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The models are primarily of interactions of atoms and molecules, or rule-based genetics.
AP Chemistry Review Activities AP Chemistry Interactive Review Activities In keeping with the new framework for AP Chemistry beginning in 2013 - 2014, I am indicating here if the topic to which a review activity relates has been dropped from the curriculum. It will be identified as excluded (Excluded) to indicate that the College Board has specifically excluded it. I will leave the reviews here, however, in case some of you find them useful. These are not graded assignments.
Quarks and Quirks DONE!( Almost.) Aside from some of the labs near the end of the course and a “living books” assignment yet to be wiggled into the schedule, this syllabus is complete.

Liquid Crystals Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates Liquid Crystals Play the Crystallite Game Play the Mainstream Game About the game A liquid crystal is a substance that flows like a liquid but maintains some of the ordered structure characteristic of crystals. Under certain circumstances, phases, liquid crystals have a liquid-like behaviour and during others they have the opposite behaviour. chemistry - dawnwelch7 Introductory Activity Rubric Matter and Its Changes Separating Mixtures Lab Information Packet
Home Chemistry: Experiments We recently tried a new and improved version of the lava lamp project from several years ago. It worked great! Here's how we did it: Tools and Materials: • Clean recycled soda or water bottle, label removed, 16 oz or larger • Water • Food coloring • Baby oil, at least one 12 oz bottle • Effervescent antacid tablets (such as Alka-Seltzer) • LED push light (or make a light-up base from a recycled jar or can, some extra bright LED bulbs, coin batteries, and tape) • Plastic plate or other protection for table • Cooking (meat) thermometer (optional) Step 1: Prepare the lava lamp bottle.
Laser Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates Laser Play the Laser Challenge Game About the game Lasers have a remarkable range of uses - from measuring distances to precision surgery for repairing vision defects. Read More » Chemistry Now The National Science Foundation (NSF) has joined forces with NBC Learn and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry by creating "Chemistry Now"--a weekly, online video series that uncovers and explains the science of common, physical objects in our world and the changes they undergo every day. The series also looks at the lives and work of scientists on the frontiers of the 21st century... More. This video explains and illustrates the molecular structure of sodium chloride (NaCl) crystals; the structure and symmetry of crystal lattices; and why one crystalline solid, salt, melts another, ice.
High School Laboratory Safety Certification Course The Flinn Scientific High School Laboratory Safety Course is a comprehensive seven-hour online safety training program. The 45 separate video chapters that make up the course may be viewed either individually or as part of a certification sequence. In order to become “Flinn Certified” you must watch all 45 videos in sequence and complete a series of the unit assessments to document the safety training. If you choose to view the videos individually you will have the freedom to skip around and select any video of interest.
