Noei, Nima; Imani, Iman Mohammadi; Wilson, Lee D.; Azizian, Saeid – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A low-cost and simple setup to measure the densities of liquids is introduced herein. The results and reliability of this setup were evaluated for pure liquids, water-ethanol binary mixtures, and aqueous NaCl solutions. The constructed densitometer provided density values with acceptable relative errors (less than ±3.0%), which were compared to…

Brown, Todd; Brown, Katrina – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2017
Solar eclipses occur several times a year, but most people will be lucky if they see one total solar eclipse in their lifetime. There are two upcoming total solar eclipses that can be seen from different parts of the United States (August 21, 2017 and April 8, 2024), and they provide teachers with an amazing opportunity to engage students with a…

Meadows, Lee – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This review essay affirms the work Mr. Red does with his students to support their learning about evolution and how his approach agrees with the realities of teaching evolution in the American South. It then shows how focusing on understanding, but not necessarily belief, adds to Mr. Red's apparent neutrality a complimentary pedagogical approach…

Weinburgh, Molly H.; Stewart, Morgan; Silva, Cecilia – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
The importance of culture and social interactions in disciplinary learning and language development within specific social practices and contexts is now an agreed-upon notion in the science education literature. In a pivotal article in 1990, Lemke introduced the idea of manual-technical operations as one of four modes making up the "hybrid…

Schatz, Dennis; Fraknoi, Andrew – Science Teacher, 2017
This summer, on August 21, 500 million people across North America will experience one of the most beautiful astronomical phenomena: an eclipse of the Sun. It will be a "must teach" moment, when all students will want to know the "what, when, and why" of the event. In addition, many high school science teachers are likely to be…

Chambers, Paul – Primary Science, 2017
The position of science and technology in Scottish primary schools is broadly similar to most other primary schools throughout Great Britain. There are certain schools and individuals that perform at a very high level but many schools are hampered by a lack of resources, a lack of confidence in teaching the topics and some significant gaps in the…

Subotnik, Rena F.; Almarode, John; Lee, G. Maie – Gifted Child Today, 2016
In recent years, specialized schools have become far more visible in the public domain, and with that visibility comes a responsibility to share what such schools provide for their students and to the education community (see National Research Council, 2011). The editors of this issue elicited responses from a set of authors representing five…

Develaki, Maria – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2016
Models and modeling are core elements of scientific methods and consequently also are of key importance for the conception and teaching of scientific methodology. The epistemology of models and its transfer and adaption to nature of science education are not, however, simple themes. We present some conceptual units in which school science models…

Huynh, Trongnghia; Hou, Gene; Wang, Jin – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2016
We have conducted an education project to communicate the wave energy concept to high school students. A virtual reality system that combines both hardware and software is developed in this project to simulate the buoy-wave interaction. This first-of-its-kind wave energy unit is portable and physics-based, allowing students to conduct a number of…
