Teachers' Domain: Galileo: A Different Thinker - Sep 5, 2013
Galileo's classic experiments on gravity and inertia are presented in an entertaining multimedia format.
Science Educator's Guide to Assessment - Sep 5, 2013
This assessment guide is designed to help science teachers find their way through the maze of assessment by providing clearly written purposes and methods.
Science NetLinks: Sensing Energy - Sep 4, 2013
Kids use UV detection beads to explore unseen energy from the sun. Great fun -- appropriate for upper elementary.
Laboratory Survival Manual - Aug 30, 2013
A must for the beginning (and throughout) the year, these guidelines for safely working with chemicals and other materials in the laboratory promote safety awareness and safe work practices.
This multi-day module engages multiple sensory paths and learning styles through video, interactive simulation, animations, hands-on activities, and computational reasoning exercises. Developed for use in middle school.
TryEngineering: Solar Structures - May 17, 2013
3-day unit explores passive solar design: students work on teams to build & test a scaled solar "house" that meets quality constraints.
Teach Engineering: Designing a Spectroscopy Mission - Apr 3, 2013
As part of ground- and space-based missions, engineers design spectrographs and other amazing equipment to study our universe. This lab for high school physics lets students develop ground or space-based missions to accommodate their own spectrograph designs.
EERE Energy Education: Comparing Light Bulbs - Apr 3, 2013
Kids investigate which type of lightbulb is most fuel-efficient: the incandescent bulb or the compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL).
CIESE Real Time Data Projects: Tsunami Surge - Mar 6, 2013
Cross disciplinary resource blends physics, earth science, and global history to get students excited about the science of tsunamis. Use real-time data to see how various global agencies monitor for tsunami activity, then develop your own "preparedness plan".
Making Oatmeal Box Pinhole Cameras - Mar 6, 2013
Pinhole cameras are a great way to help kids understand how a beam of light projects from a point source to a particular spot. This lesson gives step-by-step illustrated directions for construction and use.
