New Review Edible Cell Model Project
Science has never tasted so sweet! Engage young scholars in exploring the anatomy of the cell with a fun life science project. Choosing to focus on either plants or animals, students create edible cell models with a key that identifies and explains the functions of organelles like the nucleus, mitochondria, cytoplasm, and cell membrane.

Now, this is a clever approach to understanding cell organelles; seven pairs of organelles are listed, and pupils write an explanation of how each pair cooperates to perform certain cell functions. Organelles include the nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi bodies, lysosomes, vesicles, and the cell membrane.

Types of Decay
The types of decay, and why they occur within an atom, are the focus of this chemistry video. Sal covers the basic ways that a nucleus of an atom can decay. He gives examples of beta decay, alpha decay, gamma decay, and positron emission.

Difference One Proton Makes
Chemsitry aces learn that protons are located in the nucleus and the number of protons in the nucleus determines the atomic number of an element. In this instructional activity, they compare materials made up of a single element and other materials which have a difference of only one proton in their atomic nucleus.

All About Circuits ~ Atomic Structure
In this interactive Internet assignment, physical science investigators answer 11 questions about the atom, the subatomic particles, and atomic structure. They can click on "Reveal Answer" to discover if they are correct. They also calculate the number of moles in a sample of iron and express the atomic mass and mass number using an algebraic expression.

New Review Types of Radiation
Learn about radiation, and what everyday items produce radiation, with a series of activities about heat transfer. Kids go over basic information about electromagnetic waves and ionizing radiation before performing several experiments and completing a worksheet about where to find sources of radiation in their community.

What a comprehensive summary of introductory nuclear physics! Although the delivery is dry, the information is valuable and several "Check for Understanding" slides are interspersed throughout to reinforce learning. As a result of viewing these slides, future physicists will be able to determine the charge of a nucleus, differentiate between alpha and beta particles, describe background radiation and Geiger counters, and more!

The Discovery of the Atomic Nucleus
Your host, Dr. Brian Cox, calls Ernest Rutherford the first proper particle physicist. He uses tennis balls to demonstrate what happened when Rutherford's students fired particles at a sheet of gold. Rutherford was able to deduce that most of an atom is actually made up of empty space.

The Atomic Nature of Matter
Atoms make up everything, and here is almost everything a beginning chemist needs to know about them! By viewing this set of slides, pupils learn about atom structure down to the level of quarks. They see a variety of atomic structure models.

Students investigate what is inside three different boxes using indirect observations and relate it to the discovery of the structure of the atom. In this atomic structure lesson plan, students explore the history of atomic structure by experimenting with indirect observations of 3 boxes and testing Rutherford's equation using a box and marbles.

In this nucleus and radioactivity worksheet, learners collect class data and the students represent radioactive atoms decaying. They plot their data and answer two questions about the results. They solve seven problems given the half life of different atoms and determine how much of each is left after a given amount of time.

Deep Impact Comet Encounter
Physics apprentices analyze the impact of NASA's Impactor as it collided with the comet Tempel 1 in July of 2005. They calculate the mass and speed of the comet, along with the distance it might drift off of its orbit over time. This worksheet is a fascinating problem solving exercise that you can assign to your physics learners as an enrichment when studying velocity.

Phases of Mitosis
The lecturer starts by emphasizing that the mitotic process is a separate mechanism to cytokinesis - the cytoplasm splitting to become 2 cells. The video continues explaining the stages of mitosis in great detail. Each stage is diagrammed and the relevant structures are labeled and explained.
