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. Or click the "Take a Tour" button above to see how Science Writer works. 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. Related:  Free Science Learning Materialsall about science

Games for Science Learning and Scientific Discovery Even though more people are recognizing the potential for teaching and learning through video games, there are still plenty of skeptics -- those who see video games as a mindless distraction, as entertainment and not education. But the work of a research center at the University of Washington may be at the forefront of challenging that notion. And this isn't just about how students can benefit from educational gaming either; it's about how scientific discovery can benefit from gamers. That latter element has found UW's Center for Game Science in the news a lot lately, as one of the games it developed has helped lead to a breakthrough in AIDS research. Creative Research Outsourcing The game in question is called, an online protein-folding game. Since the game's release, some 100,000 people have played Foldit, most of whom have little or no background in biochemistry. "We wanted to see if human intuition could succeed where automated methods had failed," Dr. A Peek Under the Hood

The official moment that the moon turns full is 19:19 UT, or 3:19 p.m. EDT. Traditionally, the April full moon is known as "the Pink Moon," supposedly as a tribute to the grass pink or wild ground phlox, considered one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other monikers include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and, among coastal Native American tribes, the Full Fish Moon, for when the shad came upstream to spawn. (Traditional names for the full moons of the year are found in some publications, such as the Farmers' Almanac. The first full moon of spring is usually designated as the Paschal Full Moon or the Paschal Term. Following these rules, we find that the date of Easter can fall as early as March 22 and as late as April 25. Hence, there can sometimes be discrepancies between the ecclesiastical and astronomical versions for dating Easter. Harvest moon effect, in reverse
