The introduction states, "This simple lab visually shows the effects of removing zinc from a galvanized piece of sheet metal and provides students an opportunity to mathematically calculate the reduction in thickness of the zinc and number of atoms...

View Resource WFU Physics Demo Video: Cartesian Diver

This video shows a demonstration of buoyancy. A small glass vessel with a hole in the bottom is partially filled with water and placed in a partially filled cylinder of water. The cylinder has a rubber diaphragm which, when pushed, forces more water into the diver. The addition of this mass of water into the diver causes it to sink. This is part of a collection of typical lecture demonstration...

Programs include real-world applications, labs, and animations. Videos are available to watch online for free. Written teacher materials and professional development credits are available for pur...

View Resource Astro-Venture Geology Educators' Guide

This is the third of four curriculum guides focusing on astrobiology and careers. Students are confronted with the challenge of searching for and designing a planet that would be habitable to humans. Using an online, multimedia module, students make changes to the Earth-s interior and draw conclusions about which factors are necessary for human survival. Students then engage in classroom...

View Resource A Cool Glass of Water

This case study uses the example of ice in fresh and salt water- in which type of water would ice melt more quickly? The lesson helps students explore the concepts of density, heat transfer, conduction and convection. This material would be appropriate for upper level high school or lower level undergraduate classes. The case study and teaching notes may be downloaded in PDF format. The site also...
