Global Health Curriculum | BioQuest BioQuest quantitative and qualitative data from eight years of outreach experience clearly shows that teens are more excited about their classroom coursework when they learn how these subjects are essential to reducing the burden of global health. Through the combined talent and input of Seattle BioMed scientists, Washington teachers and animation experts, BioQuest is able to offer cutting edge and standards-relevant print and online curriculum resources freely at the specific curriculum website pages noted below: Engineering content and practices are now a part of Washington State science standards. We invite you to explore the Washington Global Health Alliance Ambassadors global-health inspired lessons and resources developed by a learning partnership of teachers and scientists to target the learning goals of high school algebra, chemistry and history. Are you familair with our summmer immersion program, the BioQuest Academy, for high school juniors?

Un serious game sur l'efficacité énergétique, les énergies renouvelables et le développement durable | 2020 Energy 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. 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. Many animations have been translated into Greek by Vangelis Koltsakis. Most animations have been translated into Hungarian by Sandor Nagy, Eötvös Loránd University.

Edheads - Activate Your Mind! 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")? In this feature, familiarize yourself with the parts of a basic photovoltaic cell, and find out how it goes about harnessing the free energy of the sun. 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.

Dangerous Decibels » Educator Resource Guide The guide is an illustrated, spiral paperback (8.5 x 11 and 105 pages) collection of hands-on activities, background information, and experiments that can be used in a classroom. Activities cover the anatomy and physiology of hearing, how to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, and the physics of sound. This can also be downloaded free from our website. Please note that this is NOT the Dangerous Decibels classroom program but it is one of the items included in a kit of materials that all Educator Training Workshop participants receive. You can order a copy of the Educator Resource Guide via our order form: The full guide is also available as a PDF download (~1.9MB): Why Teach About Noise-Induced Hearing Loss?

The Physics Classroom Introduction This is an interactive, on-line eText on the physics of sound. It is designed as an introductory course text and requires no previous physics exposure; I am using it in my physics of sound course for non-science majors in place of a hardcopy text. Brief introductions to physics concepts are provided as they are needed (and can be skipped if they are familiar to the reader). There is a little bit of algebra involved but not much. If you see any errors or have ideas for topics that should be included, please contact me: You are welcome to use anything you find here although a few of the images are restricted by the Wikimedia Commons license. NOTE: These Applets and scripts have been tested to work on with the usual browsers and operating systems but they cannot be guaranteed to work with all browsers on all platforms and forever. If you are interested in more detailed explanations of wave behavior you may wish to see my eText/tutorial on Waves.

ISCFC: Calculate your footprint Before thinking about efficient ways to reduce our impact on the planet, we need to know exactly how much our different behaviors impact our carbon footprint. Our International Student Footprint Calculator will allow you to do just that! The questionnaire is divided into four parts: transportation, home energy and appliances, food and personal purchases. Answer the questions as honestly as possible and keep an eye on your amount of CO2 release per year at the bottom of the screen as you continue. We offer (and strongly suggest that you use) the ability to register at the site, so that your data will be automatically saved as you progress. Once you start the questions, keep in mind that it can take 25-30 minutes or more for English-proficient students to complete them (50 minutes for those for whom English is a second language [ESL]). We suggest that students fill out this Calculator Prep Worksheet in advance, it will make the online calculation faster and more accurate.
