On-Demand Career Connection: Fire Service and Science with Ernie Carter ›
Ernie Carter has been in the Fire Service for 22yrs. He uses science knowledge of chemical reactions and fire behavior in his different areas of expertise.
On-Demand Career Connection: Studying the Brain on Drugs ›
As a child of West Indian immigrants, Gwenaëlle (Gwen-Eye-Yell) learned to communicate science across cultures and fight against stigmas and taboos around mental illness. She graduated with a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and is currently pursuing a PhD in Neurobiology.
On-Demand The Brave Old World of Emerging Viral Diseases: Cross-Cutting Concepts and Case Studies in Biology Speaker: Ken Miller ›
COVID-19 is only the latest viral threat to humanity, following HIV, SARS, MERS, and flu strains like the one that caused the 1918 pandemic. Why are some viruses so deadly? How do new ones arise and spread? Can we draw from experience to defeat this one? This session puts coronaviruses in context, invoking topics in genetics, ecology, evolution, and immunology.
On-Demand Inspiring Reading: A 3-D Look at Teaching Reading (K-5) ›
During our lit blocks, we plan for students to learn in three settings: whole class, small group, and independent. In this session, we will explore activities to foster literacy learning in these three settings. We’ll dive into a first-read minilesson to engage students with complex texts during your whole class teaching. Then we’ll examine a small group framework to enhance your guided reading instruction. Lastly, we’ll delve into coaching conversations you can use to confer with each student during independent reading.
On-Demand Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society Speaker: Joseph Levine ›
Global warming and its effects are in the news all the time, because scientific consensus links warming to heat waves, droughts, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, stronger hurricanes, and changes in ecosystem function. But climate change is just one way human activities affect the biosphere. Our species has become the single most important driver of global change – which is why so many scientists refer to the present time as the Anthropocene, which means (more or less) “The age of humanity.” This talk will focus on the Understanding Global Change project, which aims to create a conceptual framework to help us get a handle on this complicated and interdisciplinary phenomenon.
On-Demand Half Lives: Not Just for Radioactives Speaker: Bryn Lutes ›
Imagining how kinetics applies to your everyday life seems like a monumental task. The reality is that the kinetics of chemical reactions is connected to everything in your everyday life, so it’s tough to narrow it down – but we can try! Have you ever noticed how different medications have different dose timings? Some are taken every 8 hours, some taken every 12 hours, and some medications can even be given all in one dose. The rate law, and specifically the half life of that medication, determines how often it is administered because it determines how long the medication stays in your body. This is also true for chemicals like caffeine and ethanol, where the effect of the rate law can sometimes have a dangerous outcome.
On-Demand Teaching Practices for Lifelong Learners (K-5) ›
Creating lifelong learners is one way to equip students for success in school and beyond. Built on research, the practices in this session provide teachers with practical ways to engage students and build habits of lifelong learners. Attendees will receive materials and instruction that they can use in their classrooms immediately.
On-Demand Why Can’t We Walk Through Walls? Speaker: Christopher Moore ›
If we only consider the volume of the electrons, protons, and neutrons in your body, then your entire mass would be about the size of a small sugar cube. Your body is mostly empty space. However, everything about you seems pretty solid. When you lean against a wall, you don’t fall through the wall. Why can’t you walk through walls? We’ll explore this surprisingly complex question that crosses both chemistry and physics.
On-Demand Science and the Meaning of Life Speaker: Michael Wysession ›
Being a scientist is an exciting profession. The opportunity to investigate and discover the inner workings of the universe provides a deep reward that cannot be put into words. However, for many scientists, what we learn about our many connections to the world, to all living organisms, to the whole planet, to our whole galaxy, also provides an increased sense of purpose. The sense of awe and wonder at the intricacies and complexities of our very existence give many scientists a deep sense of gratitude and empathy with all other forms of life, and deep understanding of our place in the universe that even goes as far as to provide a sense of the meaning of life.
On-Demand Evolution. How strong is the evidence? Speaker: Ken Miller ›
More than 160 years have passed since Charles Darwin published his theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. He wrote his book
