Schoeddert, Alex; Babooram, Keshwaree; Pelletier, Sarah – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A low-cost and easy-to-use water recirculation system for a condenser apparatus was designed and installed in an organic chemistry teaching laboratory. Relying on gravity and a small pump for water circulation, it supplies four stations simultaneously. The water recirculation system works very well with condensers used for distillation and reflux…

McKim, Aaron J.; Forbush, Mark; McKendree, R. Bud – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2018
Water scarcity is a global problem in which, through consumption and eutrophication of freshwater, agriculture has contributed. The impact of water scarcity necessitates research into how agriculture, food, and natural resources (AFNR) educators can support solutions. A subset of AFNR educators in the Great Lakes Basin participated in a…

Havu-Nuutinen, Sari; Kärkkäinen, Sirpa; Keinonen, Tuula – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2018
Pupils' conceptual change processes that have led to long-term changes in learning processes can be very challenging and interwoven with several issues. Meanwhile, school learning is often determined as fragmented, without providing connections to pupils' different life and societal contexts. In this study, Science, Technology, and Society (STS)…

Royce, Christine Anne – Science and Children, 2015
Where does one single drop of water come from, and what can we do to reduce our water usage? These are important questions that need to be discussed in today's classroom. Helping young children understand the water cycle, the importance of water, and where and how they use water will allow them to be more informed users of this precious resource.…

Kopiyawattage, Kumudu P. P.; Lamm, Alexa J. – Journal of Extension, 2017
Extension educators can help the public learn about critical issues that contribute to existing problems in communities. Water is just such an issue in Florida--in fact, water is the top issue in Florida. The purpose of the study reported in this article was to identify Florida residents' opinions about clean water and their preferred modes of…

Vollmer, Michael; Mustard, Alexander – Physics Education, 2019
Water can exhibit many different colors due to a variety of physical properties. Here, we focus on some observable colors within very pure freshwater. We only treat the absorption of light due to electronic and ro-vibrational excitations and scattering due to refractive index fluctuations of the water and the respective consequences for the…

Onufrak, Stephen J.; Park, Sohyun; Sharkey, Joseph R.; Merlo, Caitlin; Dean, Wesley R.; Sherry, Bettylou – Journal of School Health, 2014
Background: Little is known regarding youth perceptions of tap water and school water fountains and how these relate to water and sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) intake. Methods: We used national 2010 YouthStyles data to assess perceptions of tap water and school water fountains and associations with water and SSB intake. Results: Nearly 1 in 5…

Levine, Zachary H. – Physics Teacher, 2018
An attempt to calibrate a conventional oven led to making a measurement of a thermophysical property of water using items found in the author's home. Specifically, the ratio of the energy required to heat water from the melting point to boiling to the energy required to completely boil away the water is found to be 5.7. This may be compared to the…

Koumaras, Panagiotis; Primerakis, Georgios – Physics Teacher, 2018
One of the most popular demonstration experiments pertaining to Bernoulli's principle is the production of a water spray by using a vertical plastic straw immersed in a glass of water and a horizontal straw to blow air towards the top edge of the vertical one. A more general version of this phenomenon, appearing also in school physics problems, is…
