Learn all about Food Chain
This computer animation teaches younger children about food chains. Some vocabulary words in this video include: plant, animal, producer, sunlight, water, consumer, herbivore, carnivore, and omnivore. (03:02)
Great Scientists Aristotle
Dr Allan Chapman. Oxford University Professor and historian of science, presents engaging and accessible introductions to the complex theories and ideas of Aristotle. The video provides an excellent background to the scientist's life. A must watch for students who are learning about Aristotle or how being curious is an asset. Lots of good information. (20:29)
Sherlock: The Hounds of Baskerville
This video drama is based on the classic story by Doyle. There are some advertisements that pop up without warning and implied violence. It may be too intense for younger students. Well acted and asking the students to keep track of Homes reasoning would be of value in teaching them the value of inductive reasoning. This is a modern version and the audio is extremely dramatic. Preview highly recommended. (1hour :23)
Science Bulletins: The Moon's Fragile Oasis
A NASA lunar probe reveals that the Moon stores more ice at its poles than previously thought.
Science Bulletins: Super- Star of the Universe
A local star is the most massive ever detected.
Science Bulletins: In Hot Pursuit of Asteroids
Asteroids, the rocky remnants left over from the formation of planets in the Solar System, offer scientists a window into the dynamics of this early period. Scientists from around the world are currently exploring asteroids with a small fleet of unmanned spacecraft designed to collect images, samples, and other data.
Science Bulletins: Graphite Found in Moon Rocks
Scientists have discovered the first evidence of the mineral graphite on the Moon, detected in a rock collected in 1972 by astronauts on Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the Moon.
Science Bulletins: Cosmic Collisions Fuel Black Holes
Swift is a NASA satellite designed to spot gamma-ray bursts, the most powerful explosions in the Universe. They are named for the extremely energetic gamma rays they emit. Swift can also detect high-energy, or "hard" X-rays, which have nearly the energy of gamma rays. Swift's ongoing survey of hard X-rays in space is revealing details about what kinds of dynamic cosmic activity can release such high-energy wavelengths of light.
Science Bulletins: Star Bolts from Crowded Nebula
No star-forming region in our local Universe is as vigorous as 30 Doradus, also called the Tarantula Nebula. Now astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and ESO's 2.2-meter telescope at La Silla, Chile, to spot an outlier-a star destined to exit the nebula because of gravitational interactions among its throng of massive stars. This is the first direct observation of a stellar runaway in a dense, massive cluster.
Science Bulletins: New Evidence of Water on Asteroids
For the first time, researchers have detected water on an asteroid. Two research teams independently determined that the 24 Themis asteroid, which orbits between Mars and Jupiter, is completely covered in a thin layer of frost. The discovery indicates that comets and asteroids may be more similar than previously thought. Comets are traditionally defined as small lumps of rock and ice that form vapor tails when they venture close to the Sun. Asteroids are usually characterized as large dry rocks.
Science Bulletins: New Solar Satellite Delivers First Images
The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has been hailed as the "Hubble Space Telescope for heliophysics"—a state-of-the-art spacecraft that will observe our nearest star with unprecedented detail. Its first images reveal two solar events that burst into view just after SDO's telescope array, called the Atmospheric Image Assembly (AIA), readied for operations on March 30, 2010. In this Science Bulletins snapshot, watch a prominence and a solar flare like you've never seen them before, and learn ho
