The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham
Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one. We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab. We've also started a new series - The Molecular Videos - featuring our favourite molecules and compounds. All these videos are created by video journalist Brady Haran, featuring real working chemists from the University of Nottingham.

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). Tech Science Codex Tech Researchers develop ErSb nanostructures with applications in infrared and terahertz ranges Posted By News On April 11, 2014 - 1:00pm In a feat that may provide a promising array of applications, from energy efficiency to telecommunications to enhanced imaging, researchers at UC Santa Barbara have created a compound semiconductor of nearly perfect quality with embedded nanostructures containing ordered lines of atoms that can manipulate light energy in the mid-infrared range. More efficient solar cells, less risky and higher resolution biological imaging, and the ability to transmit massive amounts of data at higher speeds are only a few applications that this unique semiconductor will be able to support.

Flinn NSTA 2010 Workshop Handouts and videos Morning of Chemistry Handout Morning of Chemistry Videos See the Products on Display in Our Booth STEM Behind Hollywood by Texas Instruments Scientists and experts who consult on Hollywood films and TV worked alongside leading math and science educators to create free classroom activities for TI-Nspire CX™ handhelds, TI-Nspire™ Teacher and Student Software, and TI-Nspire™ Apps for iPad. These activities center around the math and science behind Hollywood themes like zombies, superheroes, space and forensics, and they give students the chance to solve problems just like real-life scientists using the concepts behind their favorite movies and TV shows.

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. The World of Chemistry 1. The World of Chemistry The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and to everyday life are presented. 2.

Great Tools To Teach about Human Body in 3D Technology has radically transformed the way education is being delivered. It has also revolutionized the way students learn and created new learning styles that never existed before ( mobile learning, flipped learning, virtual learning, simulated learning, to mention but some ). Much of the human knowledge is now online and anyone with the right tools can access and use it .This democratization of knowledge has definitely improved the quality of education and increased the rates of all kinds of literacies from the digital literacy to the critical one. One of the best examples of how technology revolutionized education is manifested in the field of biology and science. There are now several web tools to help teachers carry out those " dirty " experiments that used to be done in labs now they can be done virtually and in a simulated environment way better than the real one.
