Investigate the properties of Slime, a trademarked toy material first marketed commercially in the 1970s. Your students will prepare this entertaining – yet educational – material using various natural and synthetic polymers and color it with various dyes. In addition, students will create Flexi-Putty, form it into a bouncing ball, and compare its properties to Slime. In the process, they’ll gain a better understanding of the chemistry behind these long-chain polymers and their application in a variety of products we use in everyday life.
Much like the AP Rocket, this kit offers a ball for a nose design that brings the rocket back to the ground without damaging it by increasing drag during the rocket’s descent.
Launching requires an AP Rocket Launcher II and air pump, sold separately. This is a quick and easy-to-build rocket; construction requires a ruler, scissors, T-pin, transparent tape, glue stick, and white glue.
Measures 12-1/2" L x 7/8" W x 7/8".
Even young students can learn some of the concepts of engineering used to create fascinating structures and do projects that help them apply the concepts. They will learn about:
The book features 25 hands-on projects and a glossary.
Cast iron Support Rings for use with the Ring Stand. Available in 4" and 5" sizes. Both have a clamp.
Kids invest a lot of time, heart, and hope in the construction of competitive CO2 dragsters. Protect that investment with our Competition Carrier, a hard-on-the-outside, cushiony-on-the-inside carrying case for one dragster. Constructed from durable ABS plastic, it features securely fastening snap closures and molded handles for convenient carrying.
Inside the case rests a thick foam cushion scored into multiple 1/4" x 1/4" x 1-1/2" sections. Each section can be removed to hollow out a space that fits the contours of almost any vehicle design. When safely nestled in its foam cushion, the dragster is covered with a foam pad, adding another layer of protection for a vehicle on its way to a competitive event.
Outside dimensions: 12" H (at the handle) x 14" L x 3-1/3" W. Inside dimensions: 8-1/2" H x 12-3/4" L x 2-3/4" W.
Going beyond mere naming and computation to cover math concepts and language, Conceptual Bingo offers flexibility as well as learning fun. The calling cards provide six different ways to call out the numbers. This adds the flexibility to cover many topics with this one game – a great value for the classroom or home! Choose from one of three varieties: Fractions, Decimals, and Integers. Each game includes 36 playing cards, 360 plastic markers, more than 50 calling cards, and reproducible student sheets.
Conceptual Bingo – FractionsFractions are a pivotal point in math education. Conceptual Bingo helps students grasp topics such as naming and computing fractions, counting by fractions, fraction and operation concepts, and averaging.
Conceptual Bingo – IntegersStudents a little glum about learning integers? Pep them up with Conceptual Bingo! They’ll learn to compute, interpret, and compare integers – plus learn the opposite and absolute values of a number – while trying to win the game.
Conceptual Bingo – DecimalsDon’t go dotty – Conceptual Bingo easily teaches students to compare and round decimals, to convert fractions to decimals, to understand operation concepts, and much more!
Travel through the history of rockets and their exploration of outer space with this Discovery School program. Along the journey, students learn the basics of science principles including Newton’s first and third laws of motion, friction, g-force, and more.
Includes standards links and a teacher’s guide.
Energy – we use it every day and it’s all around us, but how well do we really understand it? With Earth’s Energy, young students will learn the importance of the energy available on Earth and how we gather that energy for use. This DVD includes four segments: Sources of Energy, Electricity, Magnetism, and Solar Energy.
If you’ve tested our kits for making a durable model tower or bridge and now want to create a structure for its beauty, you’ve found the right activity! This Eiffel Tower Matchitecture Kit provides students with more than 1,000 precut wood matchsticks (no sulfur tips, of course), a microbeam cutter that trims the sticks at the desired angles, wood glue, microbeam tweezers for careful stick placement, and sheets of predesigned plans. Building an intricate Eiffel Tower out of wood pieces has never been easier than with this kit, which offers students hours of enjoyment that will sharpen their skills of precision and patience. Instructions and gluing clips included.
Double burner, variable heat, 1,100-watt and 550-watt burners, 110 VAC. Baked enamel finish, fast heating. This is an ideal heat source for the Pitsco liquid plastic and fishing lures.
In Energy Resources: Use & Conservation, students learn that we can harvest the power of nature from a variety of sources all around us: the Sun, wind, and water; the atom; energy stored in fossil fuels; and the very heat of the planet itself!
They discover what life was like before people learned to harness electrical energy and how energy-rich fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas helped fire the Industrial Revolution. They learn why these powerful energy resources are nonrenewable and in jeopardy of being used up as global energy consumption continues to rise.
Students are encouraged to play an active role in energy conservation and harness energy from the Sun by creating their own solar-powered oven. Part of the multivolume Energy in Action Video Series. Teacher’s guide included.
The flask of choice for slow evaporation and reduced “tipability,” this Erlenmeyer flask is made of borosilicate glass. Holds 250 milliliters.
