Sick Science!

Healthy Kids : Healthy Kids Activities Think a vegetable can’t teach you anything? Well think again! Try these cool experiments and activities and see what you learn! Colourful celery experiment Place a celery stalk in a clear container. Try the experiment with other plants – maybe one with a white flower. Plants draw the water up their stem and send it on to their leaves and petals. Like the celery, your body is mostly water. Salty potato experiment Cut a potato in half. Like the potato, salty food and drinks make people thirsty. Vegetable person drawing Draw your own ‘vegetable person’ using real vegetables, photos of vegetables or a combination of both. The picture of Vegieman may give you some ideas. It’s good to eat a variety of vegetables over the week. Traffic light fruit kebabs To make traffic light fruit kebabs, you’ll need: red fruit, such as strawberries or plums orange fruit, such as rockmelon or mandarin green fruit, such as honeydew, green grapes or kiwi fruit wooden skewers or large tooth picks.

Veritasium en español Tomé un bote y navegué a través de 96 millones de pelotas de plástico en la reserva de agua de Los Ángeles para averiguar por qué están allí. SUSCRÍBETE ahora para ver todos nuestros videos: La primera vez que escuché sobre las bolas de sombra, me afirmaron que reducen la evaporación. Pero resulta que esta no es la razón principal por la que fueron arrojadas al embalse. Las bolas están hechas de polietileno de alta densidad (HDPE), que es menos denso que el agua, por lo que flotan en la superficie de la reserva, incluso si se rompen. Tienen un diámetro de 10 cm y contienen aproximadamente 210 ml de agua. Muchísimas gracias a LADWP por organizar este tour especial para mí. Gracias a:Embalse de Las Virgenes por el material de archivo de cuando arrojaron las bolas de sombra inicialmenteEuro-Matic por las tomas del motor a chorro Investigado y producido por Casey Rentz Animaciones de Maria Raykova Y de Kevin MacLeod "Marty Gots a Plan"

Arvind Gupta Our core belief is that children learn by doing - by touching, feeling, cutting, sticking -- pulling things apart, putting things together. We believe that this hands-on science helps them relate to curriculum and get conceptual understanding. We believe this will revolutionize the way children learn. A child lighting up a LED with a Syringe Generator is more likely to light up his village tomorrow. Our approach is inclusive. All the materials used in our activities are very affordable and accessible to every child across the globe, developing or developed countries alike. Ours is the most cost effective outreach program in the world, with cost of 15 paisa per person (0.2 cents per person). Our Goal We want to design science and math activities to comprehensively cover the whole curriculum.

Ciencias de la Ciencia Hoy os traigo una de las noticias más importantes de los últimos tiempos, en el panorama espacial tripulado mundial. Y es que la NASA ha hecho pública, la fecha y hora del primer lanzamiento tripulado de este vehículo, que será a su vez, el primer lanzamiento tripulado de los Estados Unidos, desde que se retirara del servicio el Transbordador espacial el lejano 8 de julio de 2011. Hace casi 9 años… Así pues, anotad en la agenda el 27 de mayo de 2020 y poneos una alarma a las 20:32 UTC (22:32 hora española) porque el acontecimiento promete ser épico! Y de eso hablaremos hoy… No está mal ¿no? Ahhh… y este vídeo es una colaboración con uno de mis mejores amigos en el mundo de la divulgación… un tipo, que ya ha salido varias veces en Ciencias de la Ciencia, estoy hablando del gran Javier Santaolalla del canal Date un Vlog: Y en el guion de este vídeo me ayudará el ingeniero Ismael Flores, que tiene un canal brutal que habla en exclusiva de SpaceX.

Fun science experiments and project ideas for kids - educational, exciting and safe Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive Science should be fun.. science should be edible.. Try your hand at experimental science! Some experiments may be eaten before, during or after the experiment, and some should not be eaten at all! Each file lists an expected age-level to carry out the experiment, as well as safety precautions. Many of the experiments will require nothing more than a quick rummage through the kitchen cabinets. If you think you have an experiment worthy of the archive, feel free to fill out the online experiment acquisition form. -Cathode Man Ray.

Christmas star › Tricks (ABC Science) The Surfing Scientist › Tricks Celebrate the Yuletide with this classic trick. Five wooden toothpicks, a straw and some water are all you need to be the Christmas dinner science star. By Ruben Meerman Can't see the video? Download an mp4 [21 MB] version of this video. ^ to top What's going on? Wood is amazing stuff. All wood is about 50 per cent carbon by dry weight, 44 per cent oxygen and just 6 per cent hydrogen. The missing mass turns back into carbon dioxide and water. Freshly cut wood contains lots of liquid water which the tree was hoping to use to make more wood before someone came along with a chainsaw. When dry wood gets wet again, it swells a little. When you squeeze a drop of water onto the broken toothpicks, the wood gets wet and swells causing the 'hinges' to straighten back out again.

untitled Activity: Create a noisemaker - Learning Activities By Dr. Fred Stein, Consulting Educator This activity reinforces the skills of observation, asking questions and experimentation. Our science consultant Fred Stein explains that at the first-grade level, students are able to ask "What will happen if…" questions. "These kinds of questions lead to exploring and experimenting. By asking and finding out what happens when changing the size or material of their laughing cups, or the way that they pull their string, they reinforce the idea of cause and effect, which is the basis for understanding variables." What You'll Need: Paper cup Paper clip Cotton String Scissors Paper towel Water Here's How to Do It This simple noise-maker creates amusing sounds by rubbing a string attached to a cup. Tie about a half-meter (2 feet) of string to a paper clip with a double knot. To play your laughing cup, moisten a paper towel and fold it over the string. How many kinds of sounds can you make?

Make a Liquid Layers Density Column When you see liquids stack on top of each other in layers, it's because they have different densities from each other and don't mix well together. You can make a density column—also known as a density tower—with many liquid layers using common household liquids. This is an easy, fun and colorful science project that illustrates the concept of density. Density Column Materials You can use some or all of these liquids, depending on how many layers you want and which materials you have handy. HoneyCorn syrup or pancake syrupLiquid dishwashing soapWater (can be colored with food coloring)Vegetable oilRubbing alcohol (can be colored with food coloring)Lamp oil Make the Density Column Pour your heaviest liquid into the center of whatever container you are using to make your column. Carefully pour the next liquid you are using down the side of the container. The hardest liquids to deal with are water, vegetable oil, and rubbing alcohol. How the Density Tower Works
