Thanks for this idea Patricia. I visited the MagLev in Japan and am interested in the new Train technology in Japan with the Shinkansen.."Bullet Trains" which would use the magnetic lev...technology...What makes it so cool is that it wouldn't be on the track and the rides would be smoother and faster without the friction. With that I found the wear and tear on the trains and rails themselves wo...

Tying our physical science applications to real life is important and putting students in situations where they are prepared and apply content is an indelible memory. The Challenger Center is a great space "mission" simulation to put Middle school ages through applying their content knowledge to successfully complete the mission. Concepts like density, volume, mass are prepared utilized by the s...

Just finished the SciPack and understand a bit more on impacts of humans on environment. This subject has so many implications. Call to action, civilizations, science, renewable energy...Thinking of other alternative renewable energy ideas and how societies and populations are influenced economically, socially, and politically and how sad that is that we see the effects but are letting these bar...

4 Chemical Reactions
A very useful resource in the sense that I had a difficult time with the sciPack affiliated with this. Am I glad I went through with learning covalent bonds and ionic bonds and seeing different examples? Yes and no. I am glad I didn't quit but as far as what I needed equating to helping me teach these subjects in my 6th grade class, most of it was unnecessary. The resources here are all great and well done. I wish I had chosen something more suited toward my needs. I am grateful for this resource as we all should be. I wish I had these things when I was in high school or college. Maybe we should consider these being implemented for students, not only teachers for their content knowledge. I especially like the visual representations and interactive graphics to help me understand the theoretic applications on the atomic level.
