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.

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.

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.

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that introduces the concepts of force and motion as seventh-grade students drop balls to simulate asteroid impacts. The students explore what factors affect the size of a resulting crater by varying the ball’s mass, the height from which it is dropped, and the material being struck. They also learn about data collection and units of measurement.

SIE14046: Science in Focus: Force and Motion - Drag Races

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that facilitates fifth-grade students' exploration of the physics of motion using plastic cars with strings and washers attached to provide a pulling force. The students test the speed of the vehicles and explain what forces bring the vehicles to a stop when the cars collide with and displace barriers at the end of their run. Finally, the students discuss their findings to help solidify their understanding of the effect of forces on motion.

SIE14047: Science in Focus: Force and Motion - When Rubber Meets the Road

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that allows fifth-grade students to explore force and motion by recording and comparing the distance a vehicle travels under various conditions. Students predict the distance the car will travel by counting the number of twists in the rubber band, and observe the car’s speed as it rolls across the floor. When the force of the rubber band stops acting, the force of friction slows the car to a stop.

SIE14048: Science in Focus: Force and Motion - On a Roll

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that features first-grade students rolling balls of different sizes, masses, and materials down ramps of varying heights in order to compare their speeds. The students then experiment by replacing the ramp with a cardboard tube, and try to determine how the tube must be oriented to allow the ball to roll as it did down the ramp.

SIE14049: Science in Focus: Force and Motion - Keep on Rolling

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson that helps first-grade students to build on their prior experience with rolling objects. By designing and constructing their own roller coaster made from ramps, cardboard tubes, and flexible tubes, the students experiment with ways to get a marble from the top of a table into a bucket on the floor some distance away.

SIE14050: Science in Focus: Force and Motion - Force Against Force

This workshop for elementary and middle school science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It provides a model lesson wherein fourth-grade students explore ways to balance the force of magnetism against the force of gravity. A magnet placed in a cup on one side of a pan-balance is stuck to a stationary magnet beneath the cup. The students experiment in order to find out when enough washers will have been placed on the opposite side of the balance in order for the magnets to separate. Graphical analysis shows some unexpected results.

SIE14051: Science in Focus: Shedding Light on Science (K-5) - Shine and Shadow

This workshop for elementary science teachers was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in partnership with the Association for the Education of Teachers in Science. It provides model activities that introduce students to the idea that light is a form of energy that affects all facets of our lives. In order to understand light, the students explore how shadows are formed, as well as the role of light in seeing. In particular, we examine several big ideas about light through watching second grade students explore light and shadow and view light demonstrations. We also hear fourth grade students talk about how they see light and visit with an astronomer and other experts.
