For teachers - Ausgrid Online Electricity ResourceAusgrid’s Online Electricity Resource offers information-based content and a range of practical activities aimed at encouraging students to engage with the electricity unit of the Stage 4 and 5 Science syllabuses. The interactive resource contains syllabus content, online quizzes, interactive learning objects, animations and experiments. The resource has a strong emphasis on ‘conducting science research projects’ and will assist students to complete all the Stage 5 'Skills' encompassed in the ‘Working Scientifically’ outcomes. SectionsThe content within the site is separated into two sections. How Circuits Work" Have you ever wondered what happens when you flip a switch to turn on a light, TV, vacuum cleaner or computer? What does flipping that switch accomplish? In all of these cases, you are completing an electric circuit, allowing a current, or flow of electrons, through the wires. An electric circuit is in many ways similar to your circulatory system.

Separate Salt And Pepper Science Fair Project Purpose To demonstrate how static electricity can be used to separate pepper from a salt and pepper mix. Additional information All matter is made up of tiny atoms, which in turn are made of even smaller parts called protons, electrons and neutrons. Interactive Whiteboard Resources: Science, Key Stage 2 Energy Town Here you can find out where energy comes from, how to be energy efficient and why saving energy is so important. It looks at simple circuits and how energy gets to the home as well as how to stay safe round electricity. Changing Circuits An interactive whiteboard teaching activity which looks at the use of switches and how to make lights dimmer and brighter. Good for class discussion and for demonstrating circuit diagrams.

Here’s Why You Should Convert Your Music To 432 Hz “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla “What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” – Albert Einstein Tesla said it. Einstein Agreed. Science proved it. Electricity Concepts - All About Circuits It was discovered centuries ago that certain types of materials would mysteriously attract one another after being rubbed together. For example: after rubbing a piece of silk against a piece of glass, the silk and glass would tend to stick together. Indeed, there was an attractive force that could be demonstrated even when the two materials were separated:

Electricity & Circuits Worksheets Posted by imanshomeschool on January 29, 2014 in Amina, Basma, Design & Technology, Education Tips, Educational Toys & Games, Electricity & Circuits, Electricity & Circuits, Interactive Learning, Kids' Corner, Science, Worksheets I am just starting to teach my younger girls about electricity and circuits. I was looking through my files and I came across some of the worksheets I created 5 years ago for my son.

Teenager Wins $400,000 For His Video Explaining Einstein's Theory of Relativity Still baffled by Einstein’s theory of relativity, or even the parts in the movie Interstellar when everyone experiences time differently? Well, this teenager’s explanation of special relativity even gives Carl Sagan a run for his money. Ryan Chester, from North Royalton in Ohio, submitted his video for the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, which invites students aged 13-18 to share their passion for math and science with the world. The competition received over 2,000 applications from 86 countries. After being narrowed down to 15 finalists, Ryan managed to wrangle the prize and glory.

Electricity & Magnetism: Introduction Electricity is related to charges, and both electrons and protons carry a charge. The amount of the charge is the same for each particle, but opposite in sign. Electrons carry a negative charge while protons carry positive charge. Kids Korner - What's It All About? Acknowledgements Kids Korner is made possible by the creative, talented and dedicated team consisting of the following: Valerie Williams Valerie Williams, Apogee’s Art Director and Lead Artist is the creator and artistic talent behind Kids Korner. In the late 90s, after producing hundreds of illustrations and animations for Apogee online courses and Internet content over the years, it occurred to Valerie that these expensive art elements could be re-purposed for communicating complicated energy concepts to children.

Why do mirrors flip things horizontally (but not vertically)? Mirror image is a tricky thing, but it's pretty clear when you look at words in a reflection, that mirrors flip things horizontally rather than vertically. Or, at least it seems that that's the case. For example, when you hold up a sign saying "Food" in the mirror", it flips reads a backwards "dooF", but the letters are still the right way up. And why, when you raise your right hand, your mirror-self raise its left hand, but it still moves it up rather than down. How does a mirror know the x direction from the y direction?

Are Christmas Lights in Series or Parallel? Christmas lights. Rhett Allain Why don’t your Christmas lights work? Sadly, in the event of a string of lights going out on your tree, replacing the strand is usually the best option. Kids Zone: Our Electricity What is electricity? Where does it come from? Who discovered it? When is it dangerous?
