chemistryScience Sampler 2 – Checking Out Chemistry

If you love science experiments, then this course is for you. Roll up your sleeves and grab a few things from the kitchen before learning how matter changes states.  Next, have fun exploring how salt interacts with the world around us and what acids and bases are.  Finally, we will have some fun with a few small explosions as we study compounds and mixtures.  Join us to find out just how much fun the items in your kitchen can be.

Week 1 – Matter Changing States
Week 2 – Measuring Matter
Week 3 – Salt
Week 4 – Acids & Bases
Week 5 – Compounds & Mixtures
Week 6 – Capstone Project

microscopeScience Sampler 3 – The Science of Inquiry

Did you know that scientists use a process called the scientific method? In this course we will train you how to be a scientist.  In addition to earning our “scientist badge” we will study precision, critical reasoning, concept mapping, and microscopes.  With your new skills we will answer the questions, “Who runs faster, your or Steve?” and “How long is a day in Minecraft?”.  What other questions can you put to the test in Minecraft?  I can’t wait to find out!

Week 1 – Scientific Method
Week 2 – Microscopes
Week 3 – Concept Mapping
Week 4 – Precision & Accuracy
Week 5 – Critical Reasoning
Week 6 – Capstone Project

teslaScience Sampler 4 – Mad Scientist Party

Tesla coils, electricity, outer space, disease, and more!  The history of science is filled with spectacular discoveries and even more amazing scientists!  Join us as we meet 5 of these amazing personalities and study the ways in which they changed our world.  Each week you will have the chance to recreate their research, experiments, and accomplishments- Minecraft style!  Meet Louis Pasteur, Edwin Hubble, Alexander Graham Bell, Nikola Tesla, and Marie Curie!

Week 1 – Dodge Disease – Louis Pasteur
Week 2 – Blast OFF! – Edwin Hubble

Week 4 – Short Circuit – Nikola Tesla
Week 5 – Radioactive – Marie Curie
Week 6 – Capstone Project

Science Sampler 5 – Gravity Works

So, if gravity pulls everything down, then why don’t things on the bottom of the Earth get pulled down into space? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity and explains that when we talk about gravity pulling things down, what we really mean is gravity is pulling things TOWARD the Earth. Really, it’s all about attraction.

Week 1 – Defining Gravity
Week 2 – Down to Earth
Week 3 – The Great Escape
Week 4 – Over (to) the Moon
Week 5 – Danger! Falling Objects
Week 6 – Capstone Project
