Wright Center for Science Education

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Lots of great lessons and activities here:


The Wright Center is dedicated to the creation and sharing of novel instructional techniques and interdisciplinary resources for pre-college teachers. Through its fellowships, workshops, seminars, and a variety of public-outreach activities, the Center provides leadership in the training and retraining of science teachers to use innovative methods to stimulate young minds.

To this end, our goals are fivefold:

• to improve the teaching of science in elementary and secondary schools,

• to encourage young people to pursue science as a career,

• to explore innovative methods to communicate new and better ways of teaching science,

• to test and disseminate novel educational products and activities,

• to share the excitement and wonders of science with the public

Cornstarch Science – Quicksand Goo

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

I think this is an outside experiment.


In this experiment, you’ll be using ordinary cornstarch to model the behavior of real quicksand and learn about the properties of this non- Newtonian mixture.

The Galileoscopeâ„¢ is a high-quality, low-cost telescope kit developed for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 by a team of leading astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators. No matter where you live, with this easy-to-assemble, 50-mm (2-inch) diameter, 25- to 50-power achromatic refractor, you can see the celestial wonders that Galileo Galilei first glimpsed 400 years ago and that still delight stargazers today. These include lunar craters and mountains, four moons circling Jupiter, the phases of Venus, Saturn’s rings, and countless stars invisible to the unaided eye. The Galileoscope costs just US$15 each plus shipping for 1 to 99 units, or US$12.50 each plus shipping for 100 or more.
