The Nobel-winning physicist and chemist researched radioactivity, discovered polonium and radium, and created the first mobile x-ray machines to assist doctors during World War 1. Marie Curie’s research contributed to physics and chemistry, and changed medicine and medical treatments. Her persistence and […]


Let’s Play with STEM

Last month we familiarized ourselves with the organizations that support and drive the STEM efforts in the K-12 realm. The amount of resources available to educate, advise, and train teachers in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields are impressive and meaningful.  The future of this nation will rely heavily on the innovation and problem-solving […]

Getting to Know the Gas Laws Gang

Put a human face on the gas laws to help make these chemical equations and concepts more memorable. Like all science, principles, equations, and other types of frameworks and devices for helping humans better understand the nature of nature; it is built on the experiments, creativity, and knowledge from scientists that came before. The gas […]

Carbon Cycling, Disruption & Sequestration

Lead students into the carbon cycle to investigate human-driven disruption and an emerging real-world application for rebalancing the system. Students are generally aware that living organisms rely on carbon for structure and functioning.  In previous grade-level learning, they were also introduced to how carbon cycles through both the biotic and abiotic components of natural systems.
