Venus Flytrap Conservation
Venus Flytrap Conservation. Part of the series: How To Care For a Venus Flytrap. Conservation of Venus Fly Traps is an important concept in the world of carnivorous plants, learn all about caring for carnivorous plants in this free video. Run time 01:48.
The Plant that Eats Bugs
Learn about the venus fly trap - the carnivorous plant that eats bugs - in this brief, educational video from dizzo95. Run time 0:16.
This 4:19 minute video shows one how to build a conductivity tester. The materials that are needed to build a conductivity tester are a 9-V battery, battey snap connector, LED, electrical tape, and a
pair of test probe leads. Easy to follow, but there aren't any close-ups to help a students construct the instrument.
Scenes from the Belt Meteor Crater
Although it is called The Belt Meteor Crater, this is actually a sinkhole in Montana. A cavern formed in the Madison limestone (not far below the surface). The video is set to music. No narration but does include written information on the screen. Run time 02:08.
Capitalization of Businesses and Organizations
This video reinforces the need to capitalize the names of businesses and organizations such as schools. Specific examples of how to do this are given. Then, students have the opportunity to correct capitalization mistakes in some additional examples that are given.
Learning about Things that Float - with Curious George
The children use "a box of junk" to create different boats. One boat is made from straws, another from paper towel rolls, and the third from a pie pan. The children take their boats to a small pool to find out if they float. Some work and some do not. The children discuss why they did or didn't work.
Atoms and Molecules
This video is accompanied by text: "...An atom is the fundamental unit of chemical matter. The nucleus is an atom's center of mass and center of positive charge. The nucleus contains positively charged protons, shown in white, and uncharged neutrons, shown in blue. A cloud of negatively charged particles called electrons surrounds the nucleus.
All atoms of a given element have the same number of protons, but the number of neutrons can vary. Isotopes are atoms of the same element with diff
The Chemical Basis of Life: Summary
This is a video slide show accompanied by text:"Living organisms use only a small fraction of the known chemical elements to carry out all of their biological functions. Six elements make up more than 99% of matter in living systems: hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, and calcium. Five elements are found in much smaller amounts: sodium, magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, and potassium. Finally, 14 elements are known as "trace" elements because living organisms require them in minute quan
This silde show ia a useful overview of organic macromolecules, including aspects of their structure and function. There is no narration and no music. The viewer may have to open the slide show to 'full screen' as there is smaller print on some of the slides.
Joseph Gay-Lussac and Amedeo Avogadro Discover New Compounds
This one minute video explains how these two scientist came to discovery of new compounds by rearranging atoms.
Instructor looks at valence electrons to figure out reactivity. Instructor uses his computer screen and different colors to educate students. High school course in chemistry. (15:23)
StudyJams - Weathering and Erosion
Weathering and erosion shape the world that is around us. Watch and listen as Zoe and RJ from the StudyJams Crew explain the science behind weathering and erosion.
The Ring of Fire, Part 3
The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. (10:32)
Science Behind Haiti's 2010 Earthquake
Al Jazeera's meteorologist, Steff Gaulter, explains what made the Caribbean nation of Haiti so susceptible to such a devastating earthquake. There are also comments from Amy Vaughn of the United States Geological Survey. This video is suitable for upper elementary, middle, and high school students.
Renewable Fuels - by StudyJams
Renewable fuels are energy resources that can be replaced in a reasonable amount of time. They are sometimes called alternative fuels because they offer an alternative to fossil fuels, which cannot be replaced. Learn more about renewable fuels with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Extreme Oil Drilling
The experts in this video discuss the difficulty in finding new locations to dig for oil. In order to get oil flowing freely in the cold tundra, hot steam is pumped into the ground using massive amounts of energy.(03:04)
Palm Springs WindMills "Secrets of the WindMills" Everything you ever wanted to know about the Palm Springs or any other windmills, but were afraid to ask. KESQ-TV's Gil Diaz goes behind the locked gates to reveal the "Secrets of the Windmills". Video gives specifics of the wind mill, 228 feet tall and blades nearly 100 feet long. There are about 4,800 wind mills, they were first installed in 1981, they installed as an experiment by NASA. Where they are installed is the second most consistently windy place in

How Wind Power Is Created
Wind power is created by windmills, which use generators to
produce electricity that is gathered by wires. Find out why some
windmills produce more energy than others with information from a
science teacher in this video.
What Are the Economic Impacts of Wind Power?
Wind power has several economic and environmental impacts, including creating job opportunities in the fields of technology, construction, engineering and energy transmission. Discover the impact that using wind energy can have on the Earth. (02:42)
