Corkboard Connections: Hands-on Water Cycle Fun! Now that I'm retired, I often miss working with children; children are my inspiration and the classroom is my laboratory! Recently I accepted a position at a local school to work with kids during their year round intersession program, and I had the pleasure of teaching science to 5th graders for 3 days. I had a wonderful time teaching them about the water cycle and weather, especially since I was able to incorporate a hands-on activity and an exciting demonstration into our lessons. One activity was adapted from a terrific idea shared with me by Pat Calfee, a former elementary teacher who is now an educational consultant. When Pat was teaching 2nd grade, she used plastic rotisserie chicken containers to have her students create mini water cycles.
USCloning USCloning Application for in silico manipulation of DNA The program is especially designed for Molecular Biology / Genetic Engineering students. It can be used for both scientific and educational purposes. It allows in silico manipulation of DNA molecules using enzymes, in the same way these molecules are manipulated in the laboratory. UNIV - LIN] GDPC General info: gdpc is a program for visualising molecular dynamic simulations, it is a very versatile program and could easily be used for other purposes. gdpc reads xyz input and custom formats and can write out pictures of the frames. Changelog: 2.2.5 : Minor code cleanup Updated deprecated symbols in GTK+ 2.16. Updated Makefile and spec file, contributed by Jussi Lehtola. 2.2.4 : Minor feature enhancement Resizing of the main window also resizes the viewport. 188.8.131.52 : Minor feature enhancement Correct parameters to get seamless rotation and minimised delay between frames. 2.2.3 : Minor feature enhancement Improve interactivity during animation (it should be correct now, once and for all).
Sighting Opportunity How do I Spot The Station? What does all this sighting information mean? Time is when the sighting opportunity will begin in your local time zone. All sightings will occur within a few hours before or after sunrise or sunset. XDrawChem XDrawChem is a two-dimensional molecule drawing program for Unix operating systems. It is similar in functionality to other molecule drawing programs such as ChemDraw (TM, CambridgeSoft). It can read and write MDL Molfiles, and read ChemDraw text and binary files, to allow sharing between XDrawChem and other chemistry applications, and it can create images in popular formats like PNG and EPS. XDrawChem has been tested on Linux, SGI IRIX 6.5, Sun Solaris, Mac OS X, and Windows. Features include: Fixed length, fixed angle drawing. Periodic Table Explorer The application contains all the elements of the Periodic Table along with images of the elements in their natural state, as well as lots of other information and interactive displays. The Periodic Table Explore has a completely new and innovative user interface that allows for an almost unlimited amount of control over the display. Each display can be opened any number of times, and can show different information.
Kalzium Kalzium Description Kalzium is an application which will show you some information about the periodic system of the elements. Therefore you could use it as an information database. Kalzium has already some nice features but there are still a lot of things to do. As Kalzium has been included in KDE 3.1 we are currently coding quite lot to bring in some new and nice features and make it as fast and usefull as possible. If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel - A tediously accurate map of the solar system Mercury Venus Earth You Are Here Periodic Table Quiz Periodic Table Quiz 1.2 November 18th, 2016 Contains 801 questions designed to test your knowledge of the Periodic Table; the elements and their properties as well as chemistry and chemical processes. Many different styles of question on a variety of different topics.
G3DATA [ index | gdpc | gsx | g3data | gperiodic | gmbase | mail me ] General info: GPeriodic is a program for looking up data of elements from the periodic table. This program also features a non-graphical interface. This program was originally written by Kyle R.
