9th grade is usually the first year that students are able to explore specific fields of science in detail. They can elect to take Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Earth Science. This branching off of science interest allows the student to really explore their areas of interest. However, it also provides them the opportunity to learn…

Multiples of SI units are very important to understand when you are collecting data that have large measurements. Some of the most common prefixes for multiples of SI units include: hecto- which is 10^2 power, kilo- which is 10^3 power, mega- which is 10^6 power, giga- which is 10^9 power and tera- which is 10^12…

  It is important to understand the prefixes used to describe subdivisions of SI units. For example, pico- means 10^-12 power, nano- means 10^-9 power, micro- means 10^-6 power, milli- means 10^-3 power and centi-means 10^-2 power.   Keep these prefixes in mind when creating your own energy science fair projects

 In order to make the understanding of data universal the International System was developed. This system standardized measurements for nearly everything that scientists are interested in measuring. Here are a couple of examples: meters, joules, seconds and watts.  These are the measurement units that you will need to use in your energy science fair projects

Last week a news article came out that discussed how scientists have developed a unique material that can be used for a variety of functions based on the quick mechanical responses built into the Venus Flytrap’s design. This material is super thin, only about 1.5 millimeters thick. In order to create the quick spring reflex…

Science experiments come in all shapes and sizes. When selecting a science experiment you don’t want to rely on the same tired old ones. To keep your kids or students excited about science, occasionally you have to work outside the box. Finding new ideas for your classroom demonstration that are new, innovative and topical, means…
