How to Get a FabLab@School - FabLab@School FabLab@School is a growing network of educational digital fabrication labs that put cutting-edge technology for design and construction -- such as 3D printers and laser cutters -- into the hands of middle and high school students. TLTL researchers have spent the last years developing low-cost tools, a curriculum, and a rigorous teacher-preparation program. The labs are the proving ground for much of the research going on in TLTL.

Project-Based Engineering for Kids Fun, original, and exciting collection of project-based engineering lessons for kids. If you enjoy these projects, then I encourage you to buy my book, Rubber Band Engineer. It's a full-color-photo book full of more project plans that range from the surprisingly simple to the curiously complex, and some have their roots right here at Instructables. These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson). All of the project plans in this collection are designed to be used in an after school enrichment setting, though you may use and modify these ideas for other not-for-profit purposes provided you cite The Workshop for Young Engineers.

Chemistry - Annenburg Foundation Unit Overview Since the first time early humans lit a fire, cooked food, fermented fruit, or flaked a stone axe, we have been manipulating the matter around us. This unit explores how chemistry evolved from adapting materials for practical purposes to a science that systematically offers solutions to the world's challenges. It is a story that will start with Democritus around 400 BCE, taking us through the early Arab chemist, Jābir ibn Hayyān, to the meticulous work of the Middle Age alchemists, and finally to the birth of chemistry as a science during the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century. In the accompanying video, we explore the Silicon Age, where the goal of manipulating and purifying matter at the atomic scale is making possible today's technological advances such as cell phones and solar panels.

Science Teaching Resources Welcome to Laura Candler's Science File Cabinet. Here you'll find dozens of free printables and helpful website links for the upper elementary or middle school science classroom. The resources and links on this page are organized into the following categories. Click each heading to jump directly to a topic. Featured General Science Freebies More General Science Resources Everyday Science for PreK & K . Science Activities . Education There are numerous everyday opportunities for exploring science with your child. For example, your child is learning about the basic properties of light when he notices the size and shape of his shadow change as the sun appears to move across the sky. Seeing his reflection in a mirror, window, or pool of water tells him more about how light behaves. Similarly, you can use common everyday objects such as balloons and paper airplanes to help your child explore the properties of air.
