Exploring Magnetic Fields Purpose To reinforce the concept that magnets attract and repel items and exert a magnetic field that can vary in strength. Context The way of the dragon: chemistry for the youngest By Anna Gunnarsson What makes a good Berta activity? All the Berta activities have been tried out with young children many times over several years to ensure that they are interesting and easy to do.
The Energy Story - Introduction Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Electricity & Magnetism: Magnetic Fields Magnetic fields are different from electric fields. Although both types of fields are interconnected, they do different things. The idea of magnetic field lines and magnetic fields was first examined by Michael Faraday and later by James Clerk Maxwell. Both of these English scientists made great discoveries in the field of electromagnetism. Magnetic fields are areas where an object exhibits a magnetic influence. The fields affect neighboring objects along things called magnetic field lines.
Life Science Boy with "green stuff" Learning Goals During this session, you will have an opportunity to build understandings to help you: Distinguish between living, dead, and nonliving Define the characteristics of life Video Overview Weather Wiz Kids weather information for kids Winter StormsHow do winter storms form?Winter storms derive their energy from the clash of two air masses of different temperatures and moisture levels. Winter storms usually form when an air mass of cold, dry, Canadian air moves south and interacts with a warm, moist air mass moving north from the Gulf of Mexico.
Experiment with Magnet Magic Is your child struggling to get a handle on the principles of magnetism? Here's a fun activity to demonstrate polarity and understand the basic principles of magnetism. Before you start, brush up on the properties of magnets to get a feel for the way they work. ClassicScienceLife Mr.Q's LabNotes is a free monthly newsletter which provides lessons and insights as to new developments in Mr.Q's world. Free is good. Free is our friend! National High Magnetic Field Laboratory - Drawing Field Lines Activity A Portrait of Magnetism: Drawing Field Lines Magnets have two poles; the field lines spread out from the north pole and circle back around to the south pole. In this activity, you'll watch field lines materialize before your very eyes. The invisible will be made visible thanks to a handful of tiny iron filings.

Introducing DIY We started building DIY a few... We started building DIY a few months ago and now we’re sharing the first thing we’ve made. This is a company that we hope to spend decades crafting, but it’s important for us to do it out in the open, bit by bit, to encourage our community of kids and parents to share feedback with us continuously. From Zach’s experience making Vimeo, we understand that this sort of culture fosters collaboration and admiration between a company and its community, and ultimately leads to something that is loved. Start seeing magnetic fields Magnetic fields are everywhere– you just can’t see them*. Here we introduce some basic and inexpensive visual tools, as varied as iron filings and Arduino, pre-school toys and OpenGL, for getting to know your local fields. It’s not exhaustive, but might provide you with some useful starting points for your own exploration. (*Unless you count the magnetic field inside those photonsthat you use to see things.)
50 Really Cool Online Tools for Science Teachers A 21st-century education revolves around the Internet for everything from collaboration, tools, lessons, and even earning degrees online. If you are looking for ways to integrate online learning into your science class or science degree programs, then take a look at these cool online tools that are just perfect for both teachers and students. Science Tools to Use with Students These tools offer opportunities for learning about climate, cells, the human body, nature, and more. Magnetism Magnetism Magnets are very common items in the workplace and household. Uses of magnets range from holding pictures on the refrigerator to causing torque in electric motors. Most people are familiar with the general properties of magnets but are less familiar with the source of magnetism. The traditional concept of magnetism centers around the magnetic field and what is know as a dipole.
