Kitchen Scientists: Let's Make Jam!

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 [...]

The Work of Scientists: Reasons to Read and Write

By Becky Spence - This Reading Mama Real scientists read the newest research to keep up with the latest trends. Real scientists write their hypotheses, observations, and ultimately their findings in research journals and articles. Real life scientists have real life, authentic reasons to read and write. And as teachers, we can also create authentic reasons for our students to read and [...]

Boy Scouts Become Mad Scientists to Earn Science Merit Badge

Twenty-one Boy Scouts from the Mesa, Arizona area recently came together to earn a Merit Badge in Nuclear Science. Yes, Nuclear Science. This lesson wasn’t as easy as it sounds. The scouts built electroscopes and cloud chambers to earn their badge.
