The following activities target a middle and high school
population although some of the activities are approachable
by more advanced elementary school students.
The activities are also ideal for the general public
to review basic concepts and learn about new technologies.
EDINFORMATICS SCIENCE CHALLENGENEW
||This two part
science test was written by Edinformatics to challenge the very
best of our science students. The test has two parts: Part 1- Knowledge
and Concepts -- Part 2 - Reasoning and Analysis

SUSPENSIONS, EMULSIONS AND COLLOIDS
||What is the
difference between the various mixtures: solutions, suspensions
and colloids. What are examples for each? How can we separate these
mixtures? Multiple assessment for each section, and final assessment.

||What is force,
energy, work and power? What are examples of energy? Newton's Laws,
Mass, Weight and Gravity... Assessments are provided for each section.
INTERNATIONAL MATH AND SCIENCE TESTS||Each
of the sample tests Edinformatics designed, use actual questions from the TIMSS
(Third International Math and Science Survey). Tests consist of 25 questions from
each of the representative groups. Test is marked online and can be compared to
other students that take the test -- Grades 3,4,7,8 ,10,12 and Advanced Mathematics|
||What are atoms,
elements, compounds, molecules? What do atoms and molecules look
like? What are ionic and covalent compounds? How do we write a chemical
are the six simple machines? What is mechanical advantage and how do we calculate
it for a lever?|
the basics of atomic structure and how to create a model of an atom.
OR CHEMICAL CHANGE?
What are chemical and physical properties? What is the difference
between a chemical and a physical change? Test your knowledge by taking an assessment
about the planets, Moon, Earth, Comets, Asteroid Belt, Space Travel ... and more...
Test your knowledge by taking short assessment tests on each page! |
about the 3 types of carbon: diamonds, graphite and fullerenes. Learn why carbon
is is the building block to molecules of life.|
View and manipulate (rotate/zoom) in 3-D common molecules such
as: methane, benzene, aspirin, water, caffeine, and DNA. Then click on the molecules
names and read why each is so important.|

ON THE FULLERENE
This is the molecule has been making headlines
in Nanotechnology and now the drug industry also has interests in it. What does
it look like? How big is it? In this interactive activity you will measure the
diameter of a fullerene molecule using JAVA MAGE , a molecular modeling Java applet.|
how to use the online molecular modeling plug-in chime.
Same module as 'carbon molecule', but images are generated using
the molecular modeling plug-in chime. This allows molecules to be rotated and
viewed in 3-D |
IT WITH MOLECULES|
Science and Technology
does soap work? -- Why is diamond so hard?-- Why do carcinogens like nicotine
cause cancer? -- Why is a salt crystal cubic in shape? -- This is an interactive
activity using the JMol applet which allows students to interact with molecules.
No plug-in is needed. |
Why does ice float? Why is water so important to life? Use simple
molecular modeling software to view water and ice. Great science project ideas.
SCIENCE PROJECT IDEAS ||Asymmetric
Facial Expressions, Experiments with Mushrooms, Changing Behavior Patterns in
Teens, Spectra of Stars... these are just a few examples of our list of projects|
Read about different types of molecules and why they are important. Examples include:
fuel molecules, antioxidants, molecules of life, solvent molecules, molecules
of color and more.
Math Science and Technology
The first of 5 integrated math and science activities using
Java mage is now available. Unlike chime, no software needs to be downloaded.
Your web browser must be Java enabled. When all 5 labs are online, this will
be an excellent supplement to grades 7-9 math and science classes.
