StarGazer 6 - Timelapse Starry Skies
Here's the next installment of amazing night sky scenes, filmed in and around Santa Clarita, California during the latter half of 2011. Students will love the real life footage of these amazing scenes. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between space and the classroom. (5:18)
Shapes with Rikki (Interactive)
Get acquainted with rectangles. Drag and drop lines to create your own rectangular shapes.
Emperor Scorpions at Insect fair 2009
Some interesting footage of Emperor Scorpions (sold as pets) at this year's (2009, 23rd anual) Los Angeles Museum of Natural History's insect fair. These scary-looking bugs can be handled safely if you know what you're doing. They also glow under UV light, as shown in an interesting demonstration. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (1:03)
Cloudless Sulphur Larva Pupates and Later Emerges in Time Lapse
This Cloudless Sulphur (Phoebis sennae) butterfly larva pupates and later emerges as an adult. The other pupa tries to eclose but is unsuccessful, and dies during the process. What a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (1:40)
If You're Happy & You Know It
While you are watching this video, your children will not be able to stop them from joining right in. They will definitely be happy and you know it! Watch and enjoy.
Poisson Process-Part 1
Introduction to Poisson Processes and the Poisson Distribution. (11:01)
Up, Up and Away! - Airplanes
The airplanes unit begins with a lesson on how airplanes create lift, which involves a discussion of air pressure and how wings use Bernoulli's Principle to change air pressure. Following the lessons on lift, students explore the other three forces acting on airplanes — thrust, weight and drag. Following these lessons, students learn how airplanes are controlled and use paper airplanes to demonstrate these principles. The final lessons addresses societal and technological impacts airplanes hav
Where is Your Teacher?
In this activity, students will learn how to take bearing with a compass. They will also learn how to describe a bearing and find an object in their classroom using a bearing.
Topos, Compasses, and Triangles, Oh My!
In this activity, students will learn how to actually triangulate using a compass, topographical (topo) map and view of outside landmarks. It is best if a field trip to another location away from school is selected. The location should have easily discernable landmarks (like mountains or radio towers) and changes in elevation (to illustrate the topographical features) to enhance the activity. A national park is an ideal location, and visiting a number of parks, especially parks with hiking trail
Through ten lessons and numerous activities, students explore the natural universal rules engineers and physicists use to understand how things move and stay still. Together, these rules are called “mechanics.” The study of mechanics is a way to improve our understanding of everyday movements, such as how gravity pulls things together, how objects balance, spin and twirl, and how things fly and fall. While studying Newton's three laws of motion, students gain hands-on experience with the con
Engineering for the Earth
Young students are introduced to the complex systems of the Earth through numerous lessons on the Earth’s natural resources, processes, weather, climate and landforms. Key earth science topics include rocks, soils and minerals, water and natural resources, weather patterns and climatic regions, wind, erosion, landforms, and the harvesting of fossil fuels — all presented from an engineering point-of-view. (See the Unit Overview section for a list of topics by lesson.) Through many hands-on ac
AIRS Volumetric Cloud Data with Gradient Background (Fly In)
This visualization shows Aqua-AIRS simulated volumetric cloud data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.
