开始与我们的叶子chromatography experiment, we first must learn about leaves. Leaves contain different pigments, which give them their color. Green chlorophyll is the most common type of pigment, but there are also carotenoids (yellow, orange) and anthocyanins (red). Chlorophyll, which is essential for photosynthesis, usually hides the other pigments, except when […]
In this experiment, we will make a homopolar motor! To make a simple motor (homopolar motor) that doubles as a work of art you will need three things – a battery, magnet, and wire. Use one of our neodymium magnets to power the spinning wire motor. What You Will Need: 1 neodymium disc magnet (0.5” […]
Our first article on keeping a science notebook gave you reasons for keeping a notebook. This article has practical advice on teaching junior high and high school students with science notebooks. The notebook is a snapshot of the student and his or her understanding of the subject. With practice, keeping the science notebook will become […]
