Halloween Science

If you like to mark the occasion of Halloween with something a bit different, then this video shows some interesting little things to do which allow you to combine science with Halloween events. Making things glow tends to be something which attracts attention and creates curiosity.

Never turn a page again

This video is only 1 minute 25 seconds and yet, by the end of it I had forgotten what it was meant to be about. Lost in learning! Lost in intrigue. Lost in the wonder of all that was occurring. It’s all physics. It’s a video which makes people want to know and find things out. On top of that, it is funny. It’s a carefully planned, well thought out , high impact lesson. It would have taken brainstorming, discussion, trial runs. There would have been a feedback loop and collaboration. It’s a video which arouses a lot of curiosity and engages the audience. A one minute video can do a lot!

Hatching chickens in glass

This Japanese school has allowed its students to really find out about life. It seems to be being done as a reality TV show where there are people looking on and commenting as though they are on a panel. It’s an interesting way of getting science into the foreground and making it central to normal daily activities. The students seem to be engrossed and excited. I can remember we grew broad beans and that was exciting! Growing your own chicken would be extraordinary in every sense of the word. I wonder what happens to the chickens next and who looks after them? This is taking ICT to a whole new level.

Interactive mirrors

Interactive mirrors are starting to get lift off and one of their most important uses would be in the medical arena. People are still playing with ideas, patents and the technology behind interactive mirrors but they will happen. Some of them function like a smart board, some are using two ways mirrors and some are using smoke and mirrors to create the effect. The motivation and research are there to develop them into functional and fun items. Just a matter of time. The one featured in the video has a patent pending but it was developed in 2008 so maybe it does have a patent by now. There are instructions here to develop a magic mirror with the Raspberry Pi and Mad Science has instructions for making a magic mirror using your smartphone.

Next generation science standards

For Americans, the next generation science standards are here and they are developing curriculum around the core learning approaches. These standards are being supported by NAA and the education office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.It supports STEM and since it is using online resources and connectivity , it is supporting STEAM as well. You have access to NASA’s database of activities, there are resources, apps, and posters. There are also educational events and  a blog you can follow. With all of that to support science in the classroom, it is probably worth a look:
