Congratulations to our winner, Mr. Cookson from Kings Glen Elementary! You are our grand prize winner. For Mr. Cookson all of our finalists – we will be in touch with you (or the people who nominated you) by the end of the week.
Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for your favorite teacher. Our Spangler community is passionate about its teachers!
Vinegar is a smelly staple of science educators everywhere. The solution of acetic acid is the most often-used, simple acidic solution in the lab, and it’s non-toxic and safe to be handled. It’s no wonder that vinegar is a key component of tons of activities and projects for all sorts of chemically based experiences. What’s that? You only know that classic vinegar and baking soda volcano? C’mon, science-based blog reader!
Hello kitchen scientists. Whenever you mix two or more things together, you’re doing science – specifically, chemistry. In the kitchen, chemists are at work every day! Kitchen science is something we can all do, and usually the results are yummy. So, let’s be chemists, and create something new (and yummy) by mixing a few simple things together! Let’s start with some fresh strawberries.
Ordinarily, I talk about how students and young people of all types and sizes adore Insta-Snow and other products and experiments featured here. However, don’t think for even a second that you have to be a child to have fun with science. It’s not just children who are fascinated by Insta-Snow. Polymer science has the power to fascinate grown men and women – sensible adults who are attending a serious conference and sharing business techniques and practices and products and advice, for example. I’ve seen it happen.
The Sick Science Collection is one of our newest and largest additions to Steve Spangler Science. These kits were slowly released each week, beginning in April 2014. When the final kit is released this year, we will have a grand total of 24 new kits! Pretty amazing, right?
If you’re looking for some stupendously fun kits to add to your curriculum this school year, these Sick Science Kits are the kits to purchase! They are great for home schooling parents and teachers alike! The activity guides for these kits are packed with large, full color pictures and easy to read instructions. But, you’ll also get an exclusive link to special videos relating to the experiment where Steve is your teacher! He will explain the science behind the experiment itself, and how some steps on to take it further.
Sadly, the introductory sale price will not be around much longer, so this is the time to scoop them up!
(Spoiler Alert: I’m about to sound like an info-mercial in 3…2…1….)
But wait.. there’s more! The most unbelievable part is that for a limited time you are also able to purchase our complete Sick Science Collection Volume 1 (a compilation of our first 12 Sick Science Kits) for the price of 10! (Twelve, twelve, twelve kits for ten! Ok, I’m done now.)
As if all of this isn’t enough, do you know what else is exclusive to Steve Spangler Science? Teacher Training!
Prefer to get out of the house for educational experiences? Then you should look into Science at Sea! A one of a kind, inspiring, and educations cruise to Alaska for teachers, friends, colleagues, and family. Come set sail with us in June 2015!
