Description:
  • Determine the utility of www.free.ed.gov for science education.
  • Explore the different facets of science that is covered by www.free.ed.gov.
  • Imagine the possibilities provided by www.free.ed.gov.
  • Locate science lesson plans.
  • Integrate technology into the science curriculum.

Science crosses many fields of study and becomes a compilation of many philosophical and expert theories, opinions and facts.  Due to these far reaching borders, science educators have a job that is very hard to simulate.  Many federal agencies have come together to assist  educators, parents, and students in making the most of their science education by utilizing tools that once were not available at all, and especially not to the general public.  The resource that the federal government has made available is www.free.ed.gov

Making the Most out of Your Science Classroom

Science is an ever-changing field that is impossible to keep up with. Because of this phenomenon, equipment and supplies are very expensive and often unattainable. The website www.free.ed.gov can help you prepare students for the future by providing cutting edge technology through computer resources, simulations, interactive exercises, and lesson plans. This PowerPoint provides a brief look at what is available for utilization in the classroom.

Quantum Physics and the Molecular Workbench

A 2D quantum dynamics simulation that shows the motion of an electron cloud in a stadium corral setup.

This phenomenon along with a variety of other simulaitons are provided in the Molecular Workbench. There are available simulations for biology, biotech, physics, chemistry and nanaotechnolgy. Instead of trying to teach from a picture in a book, make the incomprehesible phenomenons a reality and make the learning graspable.

Genetics

This activity exhibits how viruses bind to, and infect specific cells using two methods: a demonstration and paper cut-out models.

This is one of the many lesson ideas, plans, and learning activites that are made available to further science education.
