Produced by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NanoSpace Molecularium introduces elementary and middle school students to the properties of atoms and molecules. The NanoSpace Molecularium is a virtual amusement park that students can click through to find free videos, games, and short lessons about atoms and molecules. Students enter the NanoSpace Molecularium through the Hall of Atoms & Molecules. From there they can choose which parts of the amusement park they want to explore. An interactive guide helps educators easily find the NanoSpace content by topic.
Throughout the summer months, students can explore the science behind some of their favorite summer activities. On PBS LearningMedia’s Science of Summer website, students will discover the physics of sailing, the chemistry of campfires, the mineral composition of sand, the forces that allow humans to ride bicycles and rollercoasters—and more.
Google’s Science Journal transforms students’ mobile devices into a science laboratory, encouraging students to conduct authentic experiments, collect and visualize data, and record observations from the world around them. The app, which is available for iOS, Android, and most Chromebooks, offers a suite of tools to measure light, motion, sound, G-forces, and more.
When students ask, “How does that work?” they can easily find out on the JigSpace platform. Using the app (for iOS), students can view step-by-step interactive 3D breakdowns of complex ideas, objects, and phenomena.
