One of my aims in setting up Online Science Teaching was to bring together outstanding science materials for use by others. I’ve been following Steve Spangler Science for a while, and I have been very impressed with his enthusiasm for science, his ‘showmanship’ and also his ability to make science a real entertainment through the demonstration of simple experiments.
Have a look at this video to see what I mean. OK, it’s not perhaps an experiment you would want to do yourself (many school health and safety officers would throw their hands up in despair if you tried!) but it would be great to share this video with your students, and get them to discuss the science behind it.
This is what online science is about – finding resources that really will inspire your students, and encouraging them to ask questions. The best questions often arise from the simplest investigations
Until next time,
