Primary Science Activities Ireland - Primary School Science Activities, Experiments & Worksheets Check out all the questions that Molly has previously answered. From people to parrots and eyesight to birdflight, Molly has answered lots of questions about all forms of life. You'll find her answers here. Minerals project The Australian Schools Innovation in Science, Technology (ASISTM) project is part of the Australian Government's Boosting Innovation, Science, Technology and Mathematics Teaching (BISTMT) Programme which funds innovative projects that focus on improving teaching and learning in schools in the areas of science, technology and mathematics.These resources have been developed by the cluster schools as part of the ASISTM project. The Science and Minerals Schools Clusters project is one such ASISTM project run in partnership between the NSW Minerals Council and the Department Education and Training. As the context for this project was mining and minerals, two clusters of schools, representing government and non-government schools drawn from two mining regions, Illawarra and Orange, developed a range of resources for this project.
The Energy Story Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Energy is defined as: "the ability to do work." When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work. Cars, planes, light bulbs, boats and machinery also transform energy into work. Work means moving something, lifting something, warming something, lighting something. There are many sources of energy. The forms of energy we will look at include: Electricity Biomass Energy - energy from plants Geothermal Energy Fossil Fuels - Coal, Oil and Natural Gas Hydro Power and Ocean Energy Nuclear Energy Solar Energy Wind Energy Transportation Energy We will also look at turbines and generators, at what electricity is, how energy is sent to users, and how we can decrease or conserve the energy we use.

Lesson Plans (ABC Science) Lesson Plans Making waves Make a cool wave animation and, in the process, learn about the ebb and flow of the surf. Taste illusion It is said first impressions matter, but are they always correct? Food, exercise and energy Students use nutrition information to calculate the number of teaspoons of fat and sugar in their favourite food and drinks. Flipping coins Flipping a coin one hundred times might sound mundane but it always produces truly astonishing results. Explore more Lesson Plans Rotocopters Students use balloons, plastic cups and sticky tape to construct their own Rotocopters. DIY lava lamp Students make a simple yet spectacular lava lamp. DIY pH indicator The natural pH indicator present in red cabbage leaves are extracted in a whole class demonstration. Cool Colour Students predict how food dyes from four chocolate buttons will mix in water. Will it float? Will it float is a surprisingly contagious and fun educational game you can play every day.

Chemistry Review | Solids | Inquiry in Action Summary Physical change is a change that alters the form or appearance of a material without changing the chemical composition. One example of a physical change is dissolving. Salt is made of ions that are ionically bonded together in a crystal. Sugar is made of molecules that are bonded together based on the positively and negatively charged areas. The positive and negative areas of water molecules are attracted to the oppositely charged ions in salt and to the positive and negative areas on sugar molecules. Because salt and sugar are made up of different atoms that bond together differently, water is attracted to them differently. That’s why solids that may look similar behave differently.

Welcome to Literacyhead! Intermolecular Forces Key Concepts Three types of force can operate between covalent molecules: Dispersion Forcesalso known as London Forces (named after Fritz London who first described these forces theoretically 1930) or as Weak Intermolecular Forces or as van der Waal's Forces1 (namd after the person who contributed to our understanding of non-ideal gas behaviour). Dipole-dipole interactions Hydrogen bonds Relative strength of Intermolecular Forces: Intermolecular forces (dispersion forces, dipole-dipole interactions and hydrogen bonds) are much weaker than intramolecular forces (covalent bonds, ionic bonds or metallic bonds) dispersion forces are the weakest intermolecular force (one hundredth-one thousandth the strength of a covalent bond), hydrogen bonds are the strongest intermolecular force (about one-tenth the strength of a covalent bond). dispersion forces < dipole-dipole interactions < hydrogen bonds Dispersion Forces (London Forces, Weak Intermolecular Forces, van der Waal's Forces) Hydrogen bonds
