Killer Volcanoes — NOVA | PBS

Killer Volcanoes — NOVA | PBS | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"When a team of archeologists uncovered a mass grave in East London in the 1990s, they initially hypothesized that it must have been a burial site of victims of the plague. However, radiocarbon testing revealed that the skeletons dated from sometime around 1250 CE, a century before the plague was introduced to Europe. So what happened? Through examining a number of historic manuscripts, archeologist Don Walker discovered that England had experienced a famine, caused by unseasonably frigid weather. In the year 1258 this famine, which killed no fewer than 30% of London's population, was likely caused by a volcanic eruption. This recent episode of PBS's NOVA, which aired on October 25, 2017, explores the science behind how volcanic eruptions impact global climate. This episode includes a consideration of the Mount Laki eruptions of 1783 and 1784, the Mount Tambora eruption of 1815, and the Mount Pinatubo eruption of 1991. Interested viewers can watch the full episode and check out a few related resources."

NASA After School Universe

Afterschool Universe is an out-of-school-time astronomy program targeted at middle school students. It explores astronomy concepts through engaging hands-on activities and takes participants on a journey through the Universe beyond the solar system. 

This program is now widely available to afterschool program providers to run in your local communities. Middle school students are fascinated by the cosmos and topics such as star birth, star death, and black holes. But they rarely have an opportunity to explore that interest as the middle school curriculum does not typically address these topics.

 Afterschool Universe was developed to fill this niche as the middle school years are a critical time in the development of attitudes about science and career options, especially in girls. By offering astronomy programming in out-of-school-time, where schedules are less constrained, we can engage students in science and keep them interested. 

 There is a tremendous potential for teaching science and astronomy in the afterschool setting. Young people spend a large percentage of their time out of school and many of them do so in unstructured and unsupervised ways. Afterschool programs often reach those who most need additional help and can be offered in a variety of settings where the students go when the school day is over.

Good Thinking!

Good Thinking! | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Have you ever wished you could see into the minds of your students? We’ve partnered with FableVision Studios to create a new animated series that helps teachers do just that, with Good Thinking!

The Science of Teaching Science. This original web series is designed to support K-12 science educators through targeted short-format videos that explore common student ideas and misconceptions about a range of science topics such as energy, chemical reactions, and natural selection, as well as pedagogical subjects like student motivation and the myth of left and right-brained people. Each episode is grounded in findings from peer-reviewed science and education research, has been vetted by experts, and was developed with national standards in mind. Whether you’re looking to refresh your content knowledge before beginning a new unit, or to pick up tips to refine and enhance your teaching practices, we believe great science education begins with Good Thinking!

CALET makes first direct measurements of high energy electrons in space

CALET makes first direct measurements of high energy electrons in space | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
The CALET Cosmic Ray experiment, led by Professor Shoji Torii from Waseda University in Japan, along with collaborators from LSU and other researchers in the U.S. and abroad, have successfully carried out the high-precision measurement of cosmic-ray electron spectrum up to 3 tera electron volts (TeV) by using the CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET) on the Japanese Experimental Module, the Exposed Facility on the International Space Station (ISS). This experiment is the first to make direct measurements of such high energy electrons in space.
