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.
NakedScientists's Channel This item has been hidden Science from the Sporran Play all Whilst tidying the Naked Scientists' office the other week the team unearthed this rather extraordinary collection of video reels featuring experimental scientist, Dr Ernest Otherford. We suspect he may be an ancestor of our very own Dave Ansell. It seems our forerunner had a penchant for exploring the laws of physics and chemistry using whatever happened to be in his sporran... 2:41 2:34 2:42 2:46 1:36 3:07 2:34 3:21 3:47 2:31 2:55 This item has been hidden This item has been hidden NASAeClips Our World (K-5) Play all Elementary students (grades K-5) learn more about Our World through the power of video segments. Through NASAs lens, the segments compare the natural world with the designed world, illustrating the ways to make the most of this world while propelling us into new worlds. This program is designed to supplement existing elementary learning objectives not only in STEM, but also in reading, writing, and visual and performing arts. 4:41 4:15 4:36 View 30+ more This item has been hidden Real World (6-8) Play all Middle school students (grades 6-8) explore mathematics in action through Real World.
Astronomy Courses Astronomers use tools like telescopes, cameras and spectrographs to study interactions between materials and energy within the universe. These scientists learn about galaxies, solar systems, planets and stars through careful observation and measurement recording. Astronomers also refer to natural sciences and mathematics to form and test theories. An integral part of a student’s astronomy experience is the quality of equipment and facilities they have access to. Astronomy departments at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Harvard University and the University of Tokyo give students access to some of the best observatories in the world. TED-Ed New Interactive Periodic Table With Video Lessons for Every Element October, 2014 Today, TED-Ed launched a clickable periodic table with videos on every element. This work is a fruit of a partnership between TED-Ed and Brady Haran, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Numberphile. The purpose behind this period table is to provide students with both a refresher and a study aid to help them better understand the different chemical elements and their properties. This periodic videos contains facts on almost all elements, from Hydrogen to Ununennium and beyond. And for each element, a video lesson is accorded. So students will be able to watch the video and use the TED Ed platform to engage with its content.

Science Toys Science toys help kids become interested in science, while also being a source of entertainment. They can plant the seeds for future scientific exploration and even a career in the sciences. In addition to being very educational, the right toy can mesmerize a child for hours as they learn how it works and figure out the nuances of its operation. It can definitely help give them that all important head start in school as they begin their studies in science. Introduction to "Stargazers" (for Teachers) All these files (except for solutions to problems) can also be found on the world-wide web, and this note applies equally to those accessing them via the web. The files can be reached from If you have the disk and mount it on your computer, or copy it (about 45 Mb), you can access all of the material directly, using a web browser in an "off-line" mode with no internet link (i.e. by commanding"open file" rather that "open location"). Capital letters in any address must stay capitalized, and the above file is named simply "readfirst.htm". If your link is the internet, you can download everything in condensed format ("zipped" or ""tarred and zipped"), following instructions in "prospect.htm". After everything is expanded to conventional HTML format (images are in GIF or JPG), you again have all the files on your own hard disk.
