Science & Technology

When a white light passes through a prism, it gets dispersed into various colors according to its wavelengths. This phenomenon is easily seen in a rainbow or when you use a simple prism like a ruler in front of sunlight. The principle of dispersion of light is applied in spectroscopy to study many phenomenons and topics in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and many other disciplines.  Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation (light).

Science is a process which demands observation, thinking, making hypothesis, designing and performing experimentation, collecting data and analyzing data, making inferences, replicating the tests, generalizing and exploring further. To understand this process and promoting scientific thinking and creativity among the learners I visited one of the school of Uttarkashi District.This is one of the government primary school of Uttarkashi located in the semi urban Gyansu which is connected to Uttarkashi town.

I am a science teacher of the middle school at Swami Vivekananda Rural Education Society School. I teach chemistry and biology. I enjoy my classes when my children enjoy learning. This is why I try to keep my lessons as innovative and application based as possible.

Even in 2017 in the era of so-called smartboards, Eleanor Watts' The Blackboard Book holds its ground on using the blackboard space. It aims to help teachers develop two important skills:

When it comes to what you bite, chew and swallow, your choices have a direct and long-lasting effect on the most powerful organ in your body: your brain. So which foods cause you to feel so tired after lunch? Or so restless at night? Mia Nacamulli takes you into the brain to find out.

Take them through this quick quiz after playing the video.

By doing art, students can create and communicate new ideas. By seeing art, students can be inspired by new directions and new ideas. Check this Karen Haydock article where she draws from her wide experience on science reaching and learning.

ABSTRACT

In a fun and personal talk, Ramsey Musallam gives 3 rules to spark imagination and learning, and get students excited about how the world works.

Here's the transcript:

Sometimes a silent one minute video shows us the mirror of our own greed and exploitative beast in us. Take this as a seed idea, start a discussion, make them see the darker side of 'development', invite them for a debate, inspire them to work at it at school & home level and help spawn next generation of climate warriors.

What's in the toothpaste that we use everyday - Can you make some on your own? With the things found in your kitchen? In this exciting activity children will make toothpaste with materials commonly available in a kitchen. This helps them understand the different components in a toothpaste and what role they play. This is an integrated activity that can be used in a science classroom to bring some hands-on fun.

There is much to Marie Curie's remarkable story than just factually reducing it to a closed quiz question of 'Name the 1st  female scientist to win a Nobel?'.
