Exploring the secondary transfer of gifted and talented pupils
In my research I am endeavouring to investigate the experiences of academically gifted children transferring from primary to secondary school. This involves examining the policy context of the national, regional and local arenas, the ways in which pupils experience this provision within their classrooms, and the influence of their home environment. One cohort of children will be tracked longitudinally from Year 5 into Year 8 in two contrastive areas, Bristol and Cardiff. An ethnographic case

This video compares Jupiter's lightning to lightning on Earth and is suitable for older elementary, middle school, and high school students.
Molecules in Liquid
As molecules in a solid get hotter, they vibrate faster and faster and eventually slip out of their lattice-work pattern. When this occurs, the substance melts, changing from a solid to a liquid state. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's. The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way. Good for students of any elementary school level.

Authors@Google: Jeff Potter
Jeff Potter comes to the Google Cambridge office to talk about his book "Cooking for Geeks". From Jeff's website: "If you're the curious type who asks why just as often as what, my book, "Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food" will show you how to use science when working in the kitchen." The Washington Post called it "one of the most useful books on understanding cooking, kind of like a rock-and-roll version of Harold McGee's 'On Food and Cooking.'" http://www.cooking
7.349 From Molecules to Behavior: Synaptic Neurophysiology (MIT)
Like transistors in a computer, synapses perform complex computations and connect the brain's non-linear processing elements (neurons) into a functional circuit. Understanding the role of synapses in neuronal computation is essential to understanding how the brain works. In this course students will be introduced to cutting-edge research in the field of synaptic neurophysiology. The course will cover such topics as synapse formation, synaptic function, synaptic plasticity, the roles of synapses
