Food Science Experiments These food science experiments are to teach kids about science in the kitchen. The activities are designed for kids to do with an adult's supervision and/or help depending on their age. We have two sections one for younger chefs and one for older chefs. Younger chef projects are great for elementary and preschool age. However with an adult's help any age group would enjoy all the experiments in kitchen science. Some basic science lessons when cooking in the kitchen are:

Chemistry Labs - - Virtual laboratory simulations for science education Below is a list of freely available online chemistry lab resources, including general chemistry and organic chemistry simulations. Virtual Lab Simulator – From The ChemCollective. It started as the IrYdium Project’s Virtual Lab.

Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) Java UpdateJan 15, 2014 On January 14, 2014, a new version of Java was released. Please update your computer to this version to continue using simulations and probes in WISE. Click here to download the latest java. WISE Image AnnotatorFeb 27, 2013 Demonstrations Purpose These demonstrations allow students to observe a wide variety of chemical reactions, most of which should not be performed by students for safety reasons. Be sure to keep students actively involved by directing them to make observations and consider questions during demonstrations. They could be asked to write down observations. Safety Wear eye protection and an apron throughout the demonstrations.

Chameleon food for kids and the curious (molecular gastronomy) pH indicators: An indicator is a chemical compound that is added in small amounts (usually to a solution) so that the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of the solution being tested can be visually determined. Indicators used in science: The are several common laboratory pH indicators.

The Molecular View of Equilibrium Text below taken from Kinetic Theory of Gases: Molecular Speeds Other sections state that increasing the temperature increases the speeds at which molecules move. We are now in a position to find just how large that increase is for a gaseous substance. Investigation Roadmaps - Motion Introduction STC Motion and Design is a 15-lesson kit intended for students in grade 5. It introduces students to the physics of motion and the importance of technological design.

How to Stack Liquids in a Rainbow of Layers, a Fun Kid Science Project Do your kids like to stack blocks into tall, gravity-defying towers? Ever try to stack liquids without letting them mix? It’s easy and oh-so-cool! You just need a little chemistry know-how and a steady hand. Distillation Laboratory display of distillation: 1: A source of heat 2: Still pot 3: Still head 4: Thermometer/Boiling point temperature 5: Condenser 6: Cooling water in 7: Cooling water out 8: Distillate/receiving flask 9: Vacuum/gas inlet 10: Still receiver 11: Heat control 12: Stirrer speed control 13: Stirrer/heat plate 14: Heating (Oil/sand) bath 15: Stirring means e.g. (shown), boiling chips or mechanical stirrer 16: Cooling bath.[1] History[edit] Clear evidence of the distillation of alcohol comes from the School of Salerno in the 12th century.[2][5] Fractional distillation was developed by Tadeo Alderotti in the 13th century.[6]

50 Digital Sources Of Free STEM Education Colleges, online universities, and other educational forums in your community can be excellent places to learn more about a variety of STEM topics, but there is also a wealth of educational material available on the web for those who prefer to learn at their own pace or take a more individual approach. Even better, these resources, whether classes, lectures, or tutorials, are all free of charge, meaning you can improve your knowledge without emptying your wallet. Check out our list (organized by topic, not ranking) for some great STEM resources that can help you build your knowledge about everything from calculus to zoology. Universities These universities, many of which are renowned for their STEM programs, offer resources like course materials, videos, and lecture series. Lectures
