gbrainy gbrainy is a brain teaser game and trainer to have fun and to keep your brain trained. It provides the following types of games: Logic puzzles. 7 Places to Find & Watch Documentaries Online It was in the fifth grade while watching a film (yes, a film with two reels) about Plymouth Plantation that I first realized I enjoy watching documentaries. 20+ years later I still enjoy documentaries. As a teacher I think that a good documentary video when used in the right setting can be valuable to students. Quality documentary videos can provide students with useful explanations or demonstrations of concepts. Unfortunately, documentary DVDs can be expensive acquisitions for some school departments.

10 STEM Apps To Teach About The Environment How To Use Mood Boards For Visual Learning 2.93K Views 0 Likes Mood boards are used for photography, game design, interior design, marketing, fashion, music, advertising and even architecture; but who’s to say they shouldn’t be used in the classroom? (You might be doing this already!) About » Hungry Teacher Real-world math activities that promote student engagement, collaboration, & problem-solving with your students. Hungry Teacher Approach Our lessons incorporate a “socratic” (questioning) approach. We present students with real-world problems or questions that need solutions. When presented, this immediately brings up more questions from your students. But this is exactly what you want.

Using information from the National Geographic website we modeled the distance between the Sun and each plant using footsteps as our measure: Sun: stands at the edge of the areaMercury = 1 step from sunVenus = 2 steps from sunEarth = 2.5 steps from sunMars = 4 steps from sunAsteroid belt = 8 steps from sunJupiter = 13 steps from sunSaturn = 24 steps from sunUranus = 49 steps from sunNeptune = 76 steps from sunKuiper belt = 100 steps from sun Our three groups, lead by team captains Sophie, Mack and Alex, stepped our their Solar System and drew representations of the planets in chalk.

Web 2.0 Science Tools By Laura Turner The following web2.0 sites would be useful for science educators at the high school and middle school level. Some would also be appropriate for higher elementary grade levels. There are many new ‘tools’ or websites that take advantage of the higher speed and bandwidth of today’s Internet. Web 1.0 tools/websites were text based and web2.0 tools/websites are designed for full-motion video, 3D animations and are generally interactive in some manner. Web 2.0 can also be described as the second round of new technology development and adoption. There’s one key difference between kids who excel at math and those who don’t “I’m just not a math person.” We hear it all the time. And we’ve had enough. Because we believe that the idea of “math people” is the most self-destructive idea in America today. The truth is, you probably are a math person, and by thinking otherwise, you are possibly hamstringing your own career.

Timeline Eons - Web Go to Year Search Share Instructions Tue, Jul 14, 2015 Pluto Flyby 20 Outer Space Themed Activities for Kids Disclosure: Paramount Pictures compensated me for this post. I was not swayed by compensation because I was already excited to see Interstellar and I also love space activities for kids and Matthew McConaughey. :) Today I'm sharing a compilation of the COOLEST outerspace-themed activities for kids to get you all pumped for the upcoming release of the new Paramount Pictures movie Interstellar. To get the full details for each activity, click on the name of the activity listed below the set of photos.

The Arrow of Time The debate about the nature of time and its passage is a long and venerable one. The issues addressed by pre-Socratic philosophers such as Heraclitus and Parmenides about whether time 'flows' or not prefigure present day philosophical arguments. In his talk to the Blackheath Philosophy Forum Huw Price chose as his starting point the views of cosmologist Sir Arthur Eddington - a prominent figure in the first half of the 20th century, but little known today.

Who Was Carl Sagan? It was almost like a dispatch from another planet: the invitation to the young astronomer to leave Brooklyn and visit the lakes and gorges of upstate New York. "A letter shows up in my mailbox from Carl Sagan," said Neil deGrasse Tyson, recalling the 1975 invitation at a recent Library of Congress event celebrating Sagan. "I couldn't believe it. Famous people don't write out of the blue to strangers."

How does CERN encourage women in science? In physics, as in other sciences, there is often a huge gap between the number of men and women. Just 20% of CERN's community are women, and CERN wants to improve on this. To encourage and attract more women to choose science, particularly physics, as a career CERN is holding events for both Gender in Physics Day (link is external) and the International Day of Women in Science (link is external). Last week, female scientists working at CERN visited local schools, to try to inspire the next generation of women in science. 35 women who have careers as physicists, engineers and computer scientists at CERN and are fascinated by the world of science, went to speak to the pupils. The women first introduced the students to CERN, and then explained their everyday work and how they became a part of this huge community.
