100 Best YouTube Videos for Science Teachers By now, YouTube’s value in the classroom should be rather self-evident. No matter the subject or grade level, the website offers up excellent videos to supplement lessons and provide windows into different facts and concepts. Science teachers especially have plenty to love and appreciate with this valuable resource.

Systems Thinking Games Systems Thinking Games, developed in partnership with Filament Games, are designed to be used by youth and educators to assess systems thinking skills both in the classroom and in afterschool contexts. A precursor to the GlassLab, this project brings together teachers, assessment experts and game designers and developers to collaboratively design and build a suite of games with data tools that support teachers in evaluating the way players approach problem-solving, and the strategies players use in understanding and interacting with complex systems. Currently, research is underway to develop assessment frameworks that yield valid and reliable assessment measures across the suite of digital games. To learn more, please join the Institute’s community for updates on our progress.

ACS Science for Kids Water is an amazing substance! It can form into a beautiful snowflake in its solid state or evaporate into the air as a gas. Experiment with solids, liquids and gases to learn more about these states of matter. Lle Chatelier principle This law is known to every Chemistry student as the Le Châtelier principle . His original formulation was somewhat complicated, but a reasonably useful paraphrase of it reads as follows: Le Châtelier principle: If a system at equilibrium is subjected to a change of pressure, temperature, or the number of moles of a component, there will be a tendency for a net reaction in the direction that reduces the effect of this change. To see how this works (and you must do so, as this is of such fundamental importance that you simply cannot do any meaningful chemistry without a thorough working understanding of this principle), look again at the hydrogen iodide dissociation reaction

System Dynamics Insight Maker supports System Dynamics modeling: a powerful method for exploring systems on an aggregate level. By "aggregate", it is meant that System Dynamics models look at collections of objects, not the objects themselves. For instance, if you created a model of a water leakage from a bucket, a System Dynamics model would concern itself with the quantity of water as a whole, not with individual droplets or even molecules. Similarly, if you were modeling a population of rabbits, the System Dynamics model would look at the population as a whole, not at the individual rabbits. System Dynamics models are constructed from a set basic building blocks also known as "primitives". The key primitives are Stocks, Flows, Variables and Links.

Science Friday Science Friday’s lesson plans and activities are produced by our education staff and with partner organizations. Apr. 18, 2014 Make a Model Eardrum to Detect Sound Waves By Ariel Zych Create a model eardrum to visualize sound vibrations, and then use a smartphone to identify your model’s natural frequencies. The Eerie Glow of the Antarctic Aurora Illuminates the Continent, Seen from Space The Sun may seem steady and calm to the eye, but in reality it’s anything but. Magnetic fields pierce the surface, barely constraining the dozens of millions of tons of ionized plasma that flow along them. These loops of magnetic force store vast amounts of energy, and if released, can explode with the force of millions of nuclear bombs. And when they do, that matter is hurled into space at speeds hundreds of even thousands of times faster than a rifle bullet.

Penrod - Sixth Grade Science pHet-analysis-sheet.docx There are three important pieces to your child's education: student, parent, teacher, with the STUDENT being the most important piece of this puzzle. When the three pieces work together as a team, the student may attain the best education possible. Ultimately, the responsibility of this education falls on the STUDENT'S shoulders. They must have a good attitude, and SimCityEDU Games With the suite of SimCityEDU games developed by GlassLab, educators have versions of SimCity created specifically for the classroom, with all of the tools and content they need to making learning come alive for students. Designed in partnership with learning and assessment experts from ETS and Pearson, SimCityEDU Games will engage students in a personalized learning experience, and improve the process of teaching and learning by providing formative assessment information about students’ ability to problem-solve, explain the relationships in complex systems, and read informational texts and diagrams. Lesson plans and teacher and student dashboards complete the SimCityEDU experience.
