10 Incredible Chemical Reaction GIFs Explained We encounter thousands of chemical reactions every day: plants use them in photosynthesis, metals rust over time, and combustion reactions provide us with heat and light, among thousands of other daily uses. Chemical reactions occur when reactants transform into new substances, called products, through creating and breaking bonds between atoms. Sometimes the process creates some pretty wild effects. Check out our top 10 chemical reactions below: 1) Disintegration (Mercury Reacts with Aluminum) Image credit: Theodore Gray via Youtube YouTube Create beautiful movies on the go Capture the momentStitch together an unlimited number of clips as you build your story.

STEAM Project: Tiny Dancers (A Homopolar Motor) Today we are getting a bit artsy with our science! Does the idea of making a wire sculpture that “dances” entice you……? Tiny Dancers is the third project in our collaborative series STEAM POWER: Empowering kids to explore the world through creative projects. Today’s topic is HARNESS! Because harnessing refers to making use of resources to produce energy we decided to try making a homopolar motor. A homopolar motor is probably the simplest DIY motor you can make. 10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried A few days back, we looked at five great ways to incorporate word cloud generators into your classroom. There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list. (Of note, the list is in no particular order). The vast majority of them work the same: plug your text into the box, select a few options, and you’ve got yourself a word cloud.
Apple Science Experiment Fall is here and apples are everywhere! We have been having fun with apple books and crafts and decided to do a little apple experimenting too. The kids love acid and base reactions, but this time instead of combining them we observed to see what effects they would have on apples.
12 Useful Math Hacks That They Didn’t Teach You In School 6. How To Figure Out What Day Of The Week Falls On What Date… You might be confused looking at the picture below, but the math is actually quite simple (albeit a bit elaborate). You’ll need the codes HERE, which will help you master this. July simply has a code of 5. 20th is 6 because 7 goes into 20 twice, which is 14. 20 – 14 = 6. 2069 is 2 because the leap year code of 2068 is 1 and 2069 is 1 year after, so that’s 2.
Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 7 Terrific Chrome Apps for Science Teachers February 19, 2015 Today we spent sometime in Chrome web store sifting through the different educational extensions they have there and we ended up with the list below. These are some very good tools for Science teachers to use with their students to teach them about different scientific phenomena.We used user-reviews and download number as selective criteria for out list. Have a look and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy 1- 3D Solar System
