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.

In this activity, students will investigate various aspects of the behavior of light. First, they will use diffraction gratings to view the colors or spectrum produced by visible light, then hold the diffraction grating in front of different light sources and record the colors that they see. They will examine common materials to determine whether they are transparent, translucent, or opaque and use ... Full description.

In this activity students will observe and try to interpret a "closed system," a system which allows the transfer of energy in and out, but not the exchange of material. They will realize that work can be done within the closed system as a result of the transfer of energy into the system even though nothing within the closed system was physically touched. Students will also exercise their understanding ... Full description.

This set of four animated slides illustrates the Coriolis effect, a manifestation of one of Newton's laws which says that objects move in a straight line, in an "inertial" frame of reference, unless acted upon by a force. The slides use the analogy of a ball thrown on a rotating carousel. Full description.

This Java application allows users to pump gas molecules into a box and watch what happens as they change volume, add or remove heat, and adjust gravity. Using the temperature and pressure gauges, users can discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to one another. Full description.

This collection of physics animations lets students see and understand the principles behind the motion of objects under different circumstances, including single and double springs, pendulums, roller coasters, and various combinations of these. Users can vary the parameters of the animations (mass, spring elasticity and length, track shape, gravitational acceleration, and others) and see how the ... Full description.

Ocean FEST is a program of hands-on, ocean-themed science activities for students in grades 3-6 and/or their families. Its goals are to: (1) educate participants about ocean and earth science issues that are relevant to their communities; and (2) inspire students--especially those from underrepresented groups--to pursue careers in the ocean and earth sciences. This activity explores the concept of ... Full description.
