The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham
Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one. We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab. We've also started a new series - The Molecular Videos - featuring our favourite molecules and compounds. All these videos are created by video journalist Brady Haran, featuring real working chemists from the University of Nottingham.

Periodic Table Battleship I have posted a lot about Chemistry lately. My oldest has been studying it and really enjoying it. I love his science-y mind! Today I have a really fun & simple chemistry game to share. We played Periodic Table Battleship!

BioEd Online David Eagleman, PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller, Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, provides an extraordinary look at the human brain and current neuroscience research. In this engaging series of videos, Dr. Eagleman explains the basics of brain function, and describes how this extremely complex, often misunderstood organ defines who we are. Dr. Resource: Everyday Exploration of Chemical Compounds InfoGraph Cards A resource blog, developed by a UK-based Newly Qualified Teacher, is gaining respectable notoriety with teachers and parents alike due to the accessibility of resource/revision cards (or can be printed out as posters) designed to help develop understanding of chemistry and chemical processes. Speaking to UKEdChat, the author of the resource said, “The site started off the back of a series of posters I made for my classroom to showcase the different groups of elements in the Periodic Table. A few people mentioned that they’d like copies, so I created the site in order to share the files for free. It pretty much escalated from there – a lot of people on twitter downloaded the files and used them in their own classrooms, and I also created a set of teaching versions of the elements graphics, with information missing, to be used in research tasks.” Since they proved popular, I continued making graphics on different facets of chemistry, as it’s a process I really enjoy anyway.

Solar System Scope Creative Chemistry - Anodising Aluminium Student notes There are four stages, preparing the aluminium, preparing the anodising cell, anodising, and dyeing. Preparing the aluminium Using the scissors, cut out a piece of aluminium from your can. Watch out for sharp edges! About 5 cm x 2 cm is OK.

Some of The Best YouTube Channels for Physics and Chemistry Teachers July 11, 2015 Science in general is all about understanding how the world around us functions. It investigates the laws governing the internal workings of the universe and attempts to prove or disprove theories and assumption pertaining to it. For students, understanding scientific phenomena is integral to their overall intellectual and cognitive growth. It thrusts them into a world of exploration and problem solving and, most important of all, it unleashes their creativity and satiates their curious and probing minds. In today's post, we are sharing with you some excellent YouTube channels particularly curated for chemistry and physics teachers.

29jun_experiman The fourth competition, linked to the chat and video "Science: where can it take you?" is open from 29 May 2013 until 29 June 2013. This time the competition will be for teachers and for students. Teachers: are invited to submit a lessons plan (one lesson, or a sequence of lessons) using the video "Science: where can it take you?". Thus, the lesson plan should show how the video could be used in the classroom.

Database of Periodic Tables There are hundreds of periodic tables in web space, but there is only one comprehensive database of periodic tables & periodic system formulations. If you know of an interesting periodic table that is missing, please contact the database curator: Dr Mark R Leach. Harrington Periodic Tables So we start this effort tabula rasa (without preconceived ideas). 1) All atoms have a default "common denominator" structure at 270 mass units, irrespective of the element under discussion. 17 Science Experiments That Will Make Childhood Unforgettable We care for our children every day. But in 20 years it won’t be the everyday tasks we performed for them that they’ll remember. Instead, it will be the moments we spent together. Bright Side put together a selection of the 16 best science experiments that will both tear you away from your concerns and fascinate your children. They don’t require any special preparations or knowledge, but the satisfaction you and your kids will get from them will be high indeed.
