Webcam Microscope Stage by gaudi Simple Hack In short hack a standard webcam can be turned into a USB microscope with a magnification of around 100 to 400 at a working distance of a few mm. The highest magnifications can be achieved by inverting (putting upside down) the webcam lens (no extra lens needed!).

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 5 Excellent Periodic Table Apps for Science and Chemistry Teachers February 23, 2017 Here are five great periodic table apps to use on your iPad in class. Tables summarize properties and provide more information related to each chemical element. These apps are especially helpful for teachers of sciences and engineering. They are also great references for students to use when working on their homework.
Learning in Spain: Space unit resources I am currently working on my Space Unit. We are required to do this, and other units, from scratch as we don't use textbooks for Science or Social Studies in my school. I have started with some planning looking at our Science Common Core Standards (we call them Competencias). High Power Solar Lighting System To be honest, we're pretty much just hacking a cheap lighting system into a solar lighting system. Most of the parts we will need come preassembled. We're mostly just wiring things up. The nice part about that is the fact that we only have to do a little soldering.

Outils X-Ray Goggles allow you to see the building blocks that make up websites on the internet. Activate the goggles to inspect the code behind any webpage, then remix elements with a single click, swapping in your own text, images and more. You can build: Mapping Math Concept mapping in math is often overlooked yet it can significantly deepen students’ understanding of mathematical concepts, particularly those that are complex or hard-to-understand. According to authors Pamela Grossman, Alan Schoenfeld, and Carol Lee, writing in the book, Preparing Teachers for a Changing World: What Teachers Should Know and Be Able to Do, mathematics education should focus on helping students learn when a particular approach is useful and how to apply appropriately, which greatly depends on robust understandings of concepts. They state, “robust understandings come from seeing the same concepts from multiple perspectives and representing and using them in multiple ways, thereby developing connected webs of understanding rather than rote memorization of facts and procedures. Common Core and other state standards require students learn math concepts as rigorously as they learn skills and fluency, necessitating a shift from past teaching practices.

Making math meaningful – collaboration in my classroom I am a math teacher at Kenmore Middle School, in Arlington, Virginia. I teach Math-7 and Math-8 to English language learners, and I also teach another mainstream Math-8 class. My English language learners (ELLs) are very new to the United States, mostly from Central America. They speak very little, if any English, and many do not have strong educational backgrounds. I am tasked with plugging the gaps and teaching them grade-level mathematics, with the goal of enabling them to be on grade level in subsequent years and to ultimately graduate from high school.
Divide & Conquer: STEM Apps for the Classroom STEMSTEMSTEMSTEMSTEMSTEMSTEM. SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATH. STEM is everywhere these days...YES! If you're looking (and I hope you are) to add more STEM activities to you classroom, check out some of my favorite apps I use in the classroom. Monster Physics lets the user build and design working machines of all shapes and sizes, then test out their designs. "Inventing" is the key word and it give you lots of items to build with.
FarmBot is an open-source CNC farming machine FarmBot is an open-source CNC farming machine Arduino Team — June 7th, 2016 With hopes of reinventing the way food is grown, Rory Aronson has developed humanity’s first open-source CNC farming machine. The FarmBot Genesis — which will begin taking pre-orders in July — is capable of planting seeds and then watering them precisely. Designed with the Maker community in mind, FarmBot is driven by an Arduino Mega 2560, a RAMPS 1.4 shield, NEMA 17 stepper motors, and a Raspberry Pi 3. What’s more, all of its plastic components can easily be 3D printed, while its flat connecting plates can be made with either a waterjet, plasma or laser cutter, a CNC mill, or even a hacksaw and drill press.
