Experiments For Kids: Learn About Spring Weather With Fun Activities As Canadians, we love to talk about the weather. But can we explain how weather happens to our kids? How do we answer the questions: "Why is the sky blue?" and "Where does rain come from?" We found some simple science experiments that help kids (and us parents!) better understand the world around us. Coblis — Color Blindness Simulator If you are not suffering from a color vision deficiency it is very hard to imagine how it looks like to be colorblind. The Color BLIndness Simulator can close this gap for you. Just play around with it and get a felling of how it is to have a color vision handicap. As all the calculations are made on your local machine, no images are uploaded to the server.

Learning in Spain: Space unit resources I am currently working on my Space Unit. We are required to do this, and other units, from scratch as we don't use textbooks for Science or Social Studies in my school. I have started with some planning looking at our Science Common Core Standards (we call them Competencias). Magic Flower - Science Tricks - Surfing Scientist - The Lab what's going on? Your Magic Flower is powered by a groovy scientific phenomenon called 'capillary action'. Thanks to capillary action, paper absorbs water very rapidly. When paper gets wet, it swells which causes the folded petals of your Magic Flower to open up. As the name suggests, capillary action happens inside capillaries and it takes a little explaining.
Hot & Cold Water Science Experiment – HooplaKidzLab ExpeRimental: The Soap Boat Water Experiment Send molecules flying with this super fun and easy science experiment for kids (and adults): The Soap Boat Water Experiment from The Royal Institution's ExpeRimental series. Comedian Rufus Hound and his son Alby make ... Cell Size and Scale Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification.

If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel - A tediously accurate map of the solar system Mercury Venus Earth You Are Here Moon What Are All The Elements In The Periodic Table Actually Used For? There are 118 elements in the periodic table. Everybody knows calcium is the stuff in milk and bones, chlorine goes into swimming pools, and helium floats balloons. But, besides sitting in some scientist's cupboard, what’s the use of molybdenum, antimony, or gallium? Keith Enevoldsen has created an interactive periodic table that shows the everyday applications of all the known elements, except for the superheavy elements, which are short lived, don’t exist in nature, and are only really used in atomic research.
