Hi all,
 
I was also impressed with Workshop 1. As an enrichment, during Sun-Earth-Day during the total solar eclipse, my students calculated coronal mass ejections to determine the relationship between position, average velocity, and average acceleration using SOHO images provided by NASA and UC Berkeley's solar week activities.

Hello everyone,

I was very impressed with the Workshop1: Making an Impact demonstration. The students were very involved and thinking like scientists. It was obvious that they had a very good understanding of what was expected of them. One of the attempts was to find out how big of a crater an asteroid would make if it hit the earth's surface. They used good analytical skills in getting their answers.

The lesson with the first grades shows how important it is to start teaching science concepts at an early age. The kids really understood what force meant when rolling their balls down the ramp. I was happy to see a lesson I can do with my kindergarten kids.

Thanks,

Ann Kosanke

Dear all,

I really recommend the computer activity on amusement park physics! I have tried it with my students; and, they truly enjoyed the didactic experience.
