CEF (Chemical Educational Foundation): You Be The Chemist Welcome to You Be The Chemist! The Chemical Educational Foundation's You Be The Chemist® (YBTC) programs are designed to enhance K-8 science education by introducing the central role of chemistry in all the sciences and in our everyday lives. To accomplish its mission, CEF relies on the collaboration of industry, educators, and all members of a community to enhance science education among every generation, beginning with our youth. CEF's current YBTC programs include: YBTC Essential Elements YBTC Essential Elements is designed to assist K–8 educators—our “essential elements” in education—in teaching chemistry concepts through hands-on learning and connecting those concepts to students’ everyday lives. Visit the Essential Elements page for more information on the 5E learning cycle format and how to bring an Essential Elements workshop to the schools in your community!

Current Review Gravity Space movies, such as "Gravity," are almost always grandiose in their storytelling aspirations. Current Recommendation 'How To Survive A Plague' The history of science movies and the Oscars is not a very long one. Recent Recommendation 'Last Call At The Oasis' Watching the havoc caused by Hurricane Sandy and other recent water-related natural disasters, it's hard to imagine that global water shortages represent an environmental crisis on par with climate change.
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. How do objects move? How far can a rubber band stretch? How does energy affect what we can see, hear or feel? What lies beneath the surface of our Earth? The human body is made of various chemicals to help us smell, see, move, and most importantly, survive. Have some fun playing with science.

DAVID POGUE: We live in a world of incredible material variety. Yet everything we know, the stars, the planets and life, itself, comes from about 90 basic building blocks,… You have a periodic table table. …all right here, on this remarkable chart: the periodic table of the elements. It's a story that begins with the Big Bang and eventually leads to us. Manganese! And we're made, almost entirely, of just a handful of ingredients, including one that burns with secret fire inside us all. Join me as I explore the basic building blocks of the universe… Oh!
