Chemistry for Kids As of July 1, 2013 ThinkQuest has been discontinued. We would like to thank everyone for being a part of the ThinkQuest global community: Students - For your limitless creativity and innovation, which inspires us all. Teachers - For your passion in guiding students on their quest. Partners - For your unwavering support and evangelism. Parents - For supporting the use of technology not only as an instrument of learning, but as a means of creating knowledge. We encourage everyone to continue to “Think, Create and Collaborate,” unleashing the power of technology to teach, share, and inspire. Best wishes, The Oracle Education Foundation Education | The FUTURE is WILD The Educational Value The education potential of The FUTURE is WILD is limitless. Any episode offers opportunities to teach about human impact on the environment, survival, habitats, food chains, adaptation, climate change and much more. The FUTURE is WILD can be used in schools and colleges worldwide as a resource material for teaching science and geography in particular, but also opportunities for creative work, for debate and informed discussion. The FUTURE is WILD is used in varying ways by UK and international schools and colleges. Primary Education (for children from age 5 to 11) Animals and plants always hold a special fascination for younger children, who are excited and engaged by learning about living things. The Whyteleafe School spent every week of the summer term working on The FUTURE is WILD to meet the curriculum targets in science, literacy and geography. The competition award winning children at Telford School runs a The FUTURE is WILD Science Club every week.

HS Chemistry | Quarks and Quirks DONE!( Almost.) Aside from some of the labs near the end of the course and a “living books” assignment yet to be wiggled into the schedule, this syllabus is complete. If you want to follow us in real-time, visit us at Let’s Not Burn Down the House. This is a high-school level chemistry class, honors level, designed for students who are comfortable with Algebra I and taking Algebra II. All classes have readings, websites, assigned problems, and topics. Last time, I relied on it being the International Year of Chemistry to supply writing assignments, as their essay contests were a fine way to encourage kids to write. I stop short in the text, omitting the last third of Chapter 19 on organic chem and all of Chapter 20 on biochem. Bring to every class: Textbook (Zumdahl’s Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation, 5th edition.

TLC "Science Projects for Kids: Chemical Reactions" With these science projects for kids: chemical reactions, your children can learn that, simply put, chemical reactions happen when one substance is turned into another. Whether the color changes, the shape, the flexibility, or even an explosion occurs, these are all types of chemical reactions. The best part is that there's a project here for everyone. If your kids are interested in creating a bubbly mess, there's a project here for that. If your children enjoy leaving others in wonderment as to how they bent chicken bones, you can find it here. Keep reading to learn how to make science projects for kids: chemical reactions. Foam Cup Meltdown Help your kids melt a foam witch into a jar of acetate and sculpt be-witching masterpieces with the sticky goo. Chemical Poppers Your children can find out what happens when baking soda and vinegar are placed in a plastic film container. Acid Test By simply pouring vinegar on rocks, your kids can find out if the rocks contain calcium carbonate. Pee Pals

Un científico ruso se auto-inyecta una bacteria de 3,5 millones de años | TECNOXPLORA ¿Hemos encontrado el camino hacia la inmortalidad? Según Anatoli Brouchkov, jefe del Departamento de Geocriología de la Universidad Estatal de Moscú, estamos cerca. El científico ha decidido auto-experimentar en su propio cuerpo los efectos de Bacillus F, una bacteria de 3,5 millones de años de antigüedad que él y su equipo descubrieron en 2009 en una montaña de Siberia. “Desde entonces trabajo durante más tiempo y no he padecido la gripe en los últimos dos años”, ha explicado el investigador en una entrevista concedida a la televisión rusa. Obviamente, sus observaciones no tienen validez científica, ya que para ello se necesitarían hacer ensayos con muchos más individuos, y también controlar los efectos de otras variables. En busca de la juventud eterna¿Qué es lo que proporciona a esta bacteria su vitalidad y longevidad? “Creo que existen bacterias inmortales, que pueden protegerse del daño celular. ¿Estará el elixir de la eterna juventud contenido en este ser microscópico?

Home Chemistry: Experiments We recently tried a new and improved version of the lava lamp project from several years ago. It worked great! Here's how we did it: Tools and Materials: • Clean recycled soda or water bottle, label removed, 16 oz or larger • Water • Food coloring • Baby oil, at least one 12 oz bottle • Effervescent antacid tablets (such as Alka-Seltzer) • LED push light (or make a light-up base from a recycled jar or can, some extra bright LED bulbs, coin batteries, and tape) • Plastic plate or other protection for table • Cooking (meat) thermometer (optional) Step 1: Prepare the lava lamp bottle. Step 2: Prepare the Bottom Layer of Colored Water. Density tells us how much of a substance is contained within a certain volume, or amount of three-dimensional space. Our homemade version uses water and oil, but the principle is the same. If spilling food coloring or oil is a concern, place your bottle on a plastic plate or other protected surface. Step 2: Add the Top Layer of Oil. Know what else is cool?

Design Thinking: The Scientific Method for Innovation When facing a challenging business problem or difficult strategic question, it can be hard to know where to start. In these situations, companies and organizations often turn to established strategies to create more value for their customers and improve their own positions in the market. For many companies, design thinking is a new and innovative method for solving problems and gaining new knowledge; for some, it is even considered “risky” because its popularity as a go-to process for creative innovation is relatively new. But design thinking’s origins actually date back further than you might realize, pre-dating Aristotle. When you get down to it, design thinking is just the scientific method adapted for the purpose of creating of products, services, and experiences rooted in human experiences. Discovery and hypothesis-based problem solving Let’s go back to middle school for a moment, when we all probably first learned about the scientific method. Where the “design-tific” method works
