Frank Gregorio This channel is dedicated to providing teachers and students a powerful new resource to combat student apathy. Here, you will find dramatic, visually stunning video "trailers" in the natural sciences choreographed to powerful music, designed to motivate and inspire students at the beginning of a lesson to the wonders of Biology, Earth Science, Astronomy or Chemistry. Over 60 million students and teachers worldwide have seen these videos to date, and their comments highlight their exceptional value to education. I invite you to subscribe to my channel. Periodically, a new video will be added to showcase a new topic in science. beyond benign : green chemistry curriculum Green Chemistry: The Green Curriculum "Benign by design," green chemistry is designed to have less impact on the environment by creating lower levels of waste and toxicity than traditional chemistry. Green chemistry is also a compelling way to assist teachers as they strive to interest middle school students (ages 9 – 13) in science and math.

National Chemistry Week Photo Credit: Clipart.com Science NetLinks invites teachers and others to celebrate the 27th Anniversary of National Chemistry Week October 19–25. The goal of National Chemistry Week is to hold chemistry-related events and activities for the public, particularly elementary and secondary school children, in order to make a positive change in their perception of chemistry. The American Chemical Society has announced that 2014's theme is "The Sweet Side of Chemistry—Candy." Teachers are encouraged to explore with their students the impacts of the chemistry involved in candy and confections. Science NetLinks offers these chemistry resources for teachers who want to encourage their students to recognize the breadth of activities that fall within the boundaries of chemistry.
10 Songs Bill Nye Made Educational Bill Nye may have graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, but it wouldn't be too surprising if the Science Guy picked up a minor in parody songwriting along the way. For all but four episodes of his five-year stint on PBS, Nye capped off his show with a music video spoofing a pop song with an educational spin. With the 20th anniversary of his show (September 10) just in the rear-view mirror, here are 10 of fictional Not That Bad Records' greatest hits from the not-actually-real album "Soundtrack of Science." 1.

James Kennedy Anyone who’s spent time in a classroom knows that in any academic subject, the student who reads the textbook several times from cover to cover and makes colourful, organised notes all over it is going to excel in examinations. For this reason, I’ve been trying to get students reading their textbooks (and making great notes on them) almost as long as I’ve been teaching (since 2007). Glancing your eyes over the words in a textbook isn’t enough. How should you use a textbook properly, in any subject? There are six rules you need to follow. Virtual Labs The Virtual Lab is an online simulation of a chemistry lab. It is designed to help students link chemical computations with authentic laboratory chemistry. The lab allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents (aqueous) and manipulate them in a manner resembling a real lab. More information and offline downloads.

Tornado Tube Tornado Tubes Review by Amy What a wonderful product. The after-school science class has kids ranging in age from Kindergarten thru 6th and all of them had a blast using the tubes and learning about tornados.
