This tutorial introduces the electromagnetic spectrum through the concepts of wavelength and amplitude. Students learn to associate various wavelength ranges with different spectral bands, and can explore images from space astronomy missions in each band. In the Activity section, they use a Java program to compare sunspots and x-ray images of the sun. This research activity introduces the concept ... Full description.

In this activity students experiment with the relationship between pressure, force, and area by calculating the force and pressure exerted by a LC-130 aircraft on the ice runway in McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica. The LC-130 is a four-engine turboprop transport aircraft used by the United States Antarctic Program for cargo and personnel transport between New Zealand and McMurdo Station and between ...

This activity will help younger students to determine the behavior of sunlight from observations made outside and inside the classroom. They will learn about how light travels by using mirrors, prisms, flashlights, and various objects to create shadows. Concepts include the fact that light travels in a straight line and that shadows are oriented directly away from a light source. Full description.

Students will participate in a modeling activity that simulates the cyclical role of experimental and theoretical science. Initially, the students will measure the mass of popcorn kernels. While the mass of the kernels are determined, students will also make predictions of the mass of the kernels after they are popped. After the popcorn is popped, the mass of the popcorn is measured. Data is shared ... Full description.

In this set of video lectures given in 1979 by Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, presents not only a lesson in basic physics but also a deep insight into the approach of the 17th century physicist, Isaac Newton. The first lecture, Photons - Corpuscles of Light, is an introduction to photons and their properties as well as to the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the calculation of ... Full description.

In this two-part activity, students learn about electromagnetism by constructing electromagnets and observing their behavior. They will discover that there is a close relationship between electricity and magnetism in that moving magnets can induce electric currents and that electric currents can cause magnetism. They also learn that electric current flowing in a wire creates a magnetic field around ... Full description.

In this activity students will discover that magnetism is the force produced by magnets which does all of the "holding" and that it is also a very important force in nature. This activity introduces the student to simple toy magnets to explore magnetic attraction to items which contain metal by using paper clips. Students will experience that a magnetic force is invisible and explore the magnets attracting ... Full description.

The purpose of this activity is to encourage students to learn about lenses by examining them firsthand and observing their similarities and differences. They will examine various lenses and write a description of what each one looks like, what objects look like when viewed through them, and other information that they decide is necessary to enhance their understanding of how lenses change the way ...

In this activity students look closely at a variety of lenses and describe how the they are shaped. The terms convex and concave are introduced for describing types of lenses. As students discover new things about how they look at objects, they will write their discoveries in their science notebooks. They are encouraged to look through the lenses at the pages of a book, their hands, and other objects, ... Full description.

Students working in pairs or in small groups will predict how to make a rainbow using the materials they are given, then compare the rainbows that they produce with other groups of students and identify and record the colors that they see. They should also draw diagrams that show how a prism separates the colors of light. Alternative methods to demonstrate the separation of white light into the color ... Full description.
