The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

Earth's Moon has been a source of curiosity throughout human history. It is Earth's closest companion in the Solar System, yet it appears to be very different from the Earth. There is a growing body of evidence, however, that tells us that there are also important similarities between the Earth and its Moon. In this session we “travel” to our nearest neighbor to collect clues that we can use to interpret the features of the Moon and story of the Moon's origin.

SIE14036: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Order Out of Chaos: Our Solar System

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

Have you ever looked into that seemingly endless blanket of stars in the night sky and wondered: Is there another planet like ours? Is Earth unique in the Universe? What is the likelihood of the existence of solar systems like ours? In order to contemplate these questions, we must first understand the story of our own solar system.

SIE14037: Science in Focus: Energy - What is Energy?
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Interviews about energy with children, scientists, and people on the street reveal the wide range of concepts that teachers encounter. In this session, you will look at the differences between the everyday language of energy and the scientific concept, see highlights of its history, and learn its importance in our understanding of the world.

SIE14038: Science in Focus: Energy - Force and Work
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Scientists define energy as the ability to do work. In this session, see how work is defined in physics and examine how energy and work are related.

SIE14039: Science in Focus: Energy - Transfer and Conversion of Energy
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Change happens when energy is transferred or converted. In this session, examine conversion between potential and kinetic energy. Through examples, see how events that involve a small amount of energy can trigger much larger events.

SIE14040: Science in Focus: Energy - Energy in Cycles
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Energy can be seen in cycles every day, from the bouncing of balls to the swinging of pendulums. In this session, further explore the relationship between kinetic and potential energy to understand how cycles begin and are sustained, and why they decay.

SIE14041: Science in Focus: Energy - Energy in Food
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

All life forms use energy. In this session, explore the transfer and conversion of the potential energy in food, and see how that energy is stored. Through animations, witness photosynthesis, the process by which plant cells capture the ultimate energy source for all food, sunlight.

SIE14042: Science in Focus: Energy - Energy and Systems
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Physicists use the concept of a system to trace and quantify the flow of energy. In this program, take a close look at a number of energy systems and see how this concept is closely linked to the principle of conservation of energy.

SIE14043: Science in Focus: Energy - Heat, Work, and Efficiency
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

A machine’s energy output cannot be greater than its input. In this session, look at the energy that goes into useful work, examine how some always ends up as heat, and see why systems are never 100% efficient.

SIE14044: Science in Focus: Energy - Understanding Energy

Energy lights our homes, fuels our transportation systems, and much more, but affordable energy is in limited supply. This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that takes a look at the global impact of the limits of our energy sources and examines how being smart about using energy will become more and more important in our daily lives.
