Science Writer - Help with Lab Reports Welcome to CAST Science Writer, the tool that supports students in writing lab and class reports. This tool is geared toward middle school and high school students. Check out the supports and help available in Science Writer described below. A Report Structure All parts of a science or lab report are broken into small steps so the author can concentrate on one part of the report at a time. A Process for Writing Science Writer helps you through the process of draft, revise, and edit when writing a science report. Sentence Starters The "Help Me Get Started" button has two functions (1) it divides the writing into smaller sections and (2) provides sentence starters when on the draft screens in the writing process. Checklists Checklists are available when you revise and edit your science report. Journal This is a place in Science Writer where you may write notes, reflect, make comments or questions, or keep track of data. Text to Speech Animated Helpers

The Biology Corner Secret Worlds: The Universe Within - Interactive Java Tutorial Secret Worlds: The Universe Within View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons. Once the tutorial has completely downloaded, a set of the arrows will appear that allow the user to increase or decrease the view magnitude in Manual mode. Notice how each picture is actually an image of something that is 10 times bigger or smaller than the one preceding or following it. Earth = 12.76 x 10+6 = 12,760,000 meters wide (12.76 million meters) Plant Cell = 12.76 x 10-6 = 0.00001276 meters wide (12.76 millionths of a meter) Contributing Authors David A.

Kids Do Ecology Science Fair Project Ideas with Solar Energy Science Fair Project Ideas: Solar Energy It is okay for you to imitate the work of others in order to learn and develop a project but do not copy their work and present it as your own. That is plagiarism. If you do any of these projects be sure that you do all the experiments and work yourself so that the results you present are truly your own. Find an idea for a solar energy science fair project: sample topics, materials, experiments, schematics, worksheets and research resources for good solar energy science projects. These science ideas can be used as learning tools for a fair or project at elementary school, middle school and high school level. Please read our legal information before you try this. How to build a solar powered radio. Solar motor and battery charger demonstration. Amount of light that hits a solar panel for a demonstration or an experimental project. Angle of a solar panel to the sun for a demonstration or an experimental 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 powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy powers machinery in factories and tractors on a farm. 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 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.
