20 Awesome DIY Science Projects to Do With Your Kids

20 Awesome DIY Science Projects to Do With Your Kids | STEM | Scoop.it
Before the advent of the uber-popular show Mythbusters or the push for more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in schools, parents and their kids were doing at-home science experiments. Now, the trend continues to blossom, although many of the experiments have remained somewhat the same…and always awesomely exciting!

If you’re a parent and you want to do something with your kid that isn’t related to cleaning the toilets or forging through homework, check out these 20 great science projects that you can complete in the confines of your humble abode. Most of them use around-the-home items that you probably have on hand, although some will require a little bit of shopping ahead of time. To help you decide which are best for your children’s needs, the 20 have been divided into projects for younger students and projects for older ones.

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, October 16, 2016 11:35 AM
Lots of fun things here to distract you from your capstone.  But these got me to wondering: could you easily create a "demo" version of all or a subset of your project in the form of a table top science experiment/demo?
GwynethJones's curator insight, October 16, 2016 1:51 PM

So, could ALL Science Experiments be thought of Makerspace?

Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try -

Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try - | STEM | Scoop.it
What are the latest emerging trends in education?

As trends to do, these are changing almost yearly. Consider how quiet iPads in the classroom have been recently, whereas three years ago they were going to replace teachers and were (unsarcastically) compared to magic. While mobile devices like the iPad can indeed parallel a kind of magic in the learning process, it obviously has to ‘fit’ into a progressive supporting ecology of assessment, curriculum, and instruction.

With that in mind, we’ve created a list of 15 (the graphic plus 3 bonus items below) new ideas every teacher should try. Not all will fit or work–again, it depends on the ecology of the classroom, school, and so on. But each of these ideas below–some learning models, some concepts, and some technologies–can be transformational for students, and your teaching.

Hollie Brassington's curator insight, June 3, 2016 6:51 AM
This is a fantastic summary of ways to transform learning - in fact the PBL and Skype examples in combination with the current hot topic in the news about the value and virtues of allrefugees (Karl Stefanovic on WIN Today show)  makes me think I could devise an English  Unit on refugees where students interact through  these digital pedagogical tools  with actual refugees now in Australia to find out their stories and to hear about racial prejudice towards 'boat people', and then write a letter to the editor type assessment dispelling the negativities towards refugees via an online newspaper or blog situation. These could be shared with actual refugees to show them they have the support of Australian citizens....

When I talk to teachers around the country (and around the world) I hear this same story. Students are sometimes hesitant to take on creative work inside of the classroom."

Students can produce their concept on software such as AutoCAD 3D Inventor which has add-on components like Flow Design that is a wind tunnel simulator for visualizing airflow around vehicles, buildings, consumer products, and other objects.  They can then produce their model on a 3D printer from a variety of materials.  The software and equipment can be integrated into an ITD technologies unit of work such as model Formula 1 racing cars.
