How is sound transferred through different materials?

Eight free
professional development workshops
for K-6 teachers,
presenting science concepts in energy

Understanding the concept of energy is crucial to the comprehension of many ideas in physical science, Earth and space science, and life science. The video programs, print guide, and Web site of this workshop for elementary school teachers provide a solid foundation, enabling you to distinguish between the way "energy" is commonly understood and its meaning in science.

Examine energy's role in motion, machines, food, the human body, and the universe as a whole. Learn how energy can be converted from one form to another and transferred over space and time. And explore the notion of "conservation of energy"--the idea that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Return to the classroom with a new focus on the important concept of energy.
