Investigate modern accomplishments in technology through these exhibits of technology accomplishments. Tech Ed and science teachers of all disciplines can highlight these accomplishments as real world connections to classroom learning or ask students to research the application of their classroom learning in the technology world. Of certain interest are topics that explain our systems of weights and measures, the technology time line, and the and stone wall test as a real world application of scientific method for practical purposes.

tag(s): engineering (126)

In the Classroom

Use this as a starting point for a research project or share portions on a projector as you begin units on different science and technology topics.

This informative and creative website presents students with information about various topics involving physics. Specific topics include motion, heat, magnetism, electricity, sound, modern physics and more! This site includes pictures, information and interactive quizzes. This website provides information in almost all areas of physics. The graphics assist in helping students understand difficult concepts. Some of the pages require FLASH.

tag(s): electricity (90), heat (15), magnetism (38), motion (62), sound (103)

In the Classroom

Use an interactive whiteboard to involve the entire class. This will help your weaker readsers, since you students highlight important terms and use the pens to draw examples as they read explanations. NOTE: There are some portions of the site that appear to be "under construction." We recommend that you preview the sections you want to use before sending students to the site.

This website is a wonderful resource for teachers. Some of the highlights include video footage from Bill Nye, episode guides for 100 shows, questions and answers, instructions for at-home learning fun, directions to make some unique science crafts and some very interesting science facts. The site requires FLASH. Some downloadable directions use Acrobat Reader. Get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): scientists (69)

In the Classroom

If showing your class a Bill Nye video, the episode guides will help to organize the lesson. Students may enjoy simply surfing the site, some very interesting facts are displayed! Don't forget to check out the "home demos" for some new ideas. This is a great site to include as a general enrichment link from your teacher web page. Hook some young scientists!
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Listen to songs to teach important (and less important) science concepts. This collection of MP3 files was generated from an old set of records (yes, those round vinyl things that had scratches). While the actual copyright holder information is a gray area, you can feel safe in playing the songs from the site. Most likely, these songs from the 1950s and 60s are past copyright at this point. In any case, you can click to play from smaller or larger file versions. Be patient while they load, even over a broadband connection. It will be worth the wait to teach parts of plants, the water cycle, weather, motion, energy, electricity, and MANY other topics with just a computer and set of speakers to help students retain the information. Most of the content is elementary to middle school age, but some is high school level. Learning support teachers seeking alternate study strategies will love this one!

tag(s): animals (287), energy (203), mammals (33), motion (62), plants (153), space (215), water (130), water cycle (34), weather (195)

In the Classroom

Include the links to specific songs for review on your teacher web site or play one of the songs as students enter the room (a sort of audio anticipatory set). You will definitely need to turn up the speakers. Elementary music teachers might want to pick up one of the songs while the students are studying these topics and teach the music and lyrics during music class!

Review and apply new knowledge of simple machines and laws of motion using this interactive set of activities. Students can even keep score. Your students will need to watch and read as the machines work, stopping to ask for predictions and explanations. With younger students, you may want to partner weaker readers with stronger ones. Requires FLASH player! Teacher information and student materials (pdf) are also available, along with Ohio and National Standards.

tag(s): gravity (50), machines (30), motion (62), simple machines (37)

In the Classroom

This is an ideal review for a center in your classroom or for partners on laptops or in a lab. You could also include it as a link on your teacher web page for students to practice at home, if available.

While the web is full of roller coaster sites, this flash-based simulation is a great tool to demonstrate acceleration and G-forces. Students can design their own coaster from a set of "building blocks," then give it a test run to check its performance.

tag(s): forces (46), gravity (50), roller coasters (3)

In the Classroom

CLICK on CONTINUE to get to the actual game from the opening screen that tells you what plug-ins are needed. If you do not have Shockwave, you can click to get it from this screen. Try this one for a little on-line experimenting. Whose coaster is fastest?

What happens when you try to boil water in space? While it sounds trivial, the issue of working with liquids in zero-gravity environments has implications for space exploration and travel. It's just an idle question. This site explains the problems and what scientists are trying to do to manage it.

In May, 2006, an unusual international consortium signed a treaty that could lead to the eventual construction of the world's first commercial fusion reactor. With it would come the key to almost limitless energy. This backgrounder from a similar European consortium provides a much more basic introduction to how fusion works and why it presents such a challenge.

tag(s): energy (203), nuclear energy (24)

In the Classroom

In addition to its obvious applications in physics, this issue could have widespread economic and environmental implications. There are lots of "What if..." questions you could develop around this one.

Learn about radiation sources and uses in everyday life through the virtual community of RadTown. As students tour the town, they can click on specific locations to read about wireless networks, stadium lights, medical X-rays, and power plants that introduce varying levels of radiation into our environment. Each location is linked to a fact sheet containing information about the type of radiation, agencies that help to regulate it, and steps we can take to protect ourselves from it.

tag(s): radio (27), waves (24)

In the Classroom

After exploring this virtual town, invite students to identify sources of radiation in their own community and create a class "map" showing locations that contain, use, or have been treated with radiation.
