In Colorado, drilling for oil and natural gas using hydraulic fracturing, sometimes referred to as fracking, is big business. But questions about its impact on the air and water are far from settled. With support from the National Science Foundation, University of Colorado environmental engineer Joseph Ryan heads a team gathering data on the pros and cons of oil and natural gas development, including the use of hydraulic fracturing. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
Students demonstrate the importance of emulsifiers in combining oil and water mixtures.
Students demonstrate the scientific method as they explore what makes popcorn pop.
What is fermentation? Students follow a recipe to make root beer and show the process of fermentation.
A food science professor discusses the chemistry and physics of food preparation and cooking. She also gives an overview of a food science laboratory and its equipment.
Students demonstrate the process for making cheese and how the composition of milk aids the cheese making process.
Students demonstrate the relationship between taste and smell.
Students learn what makes science different from other disciplines. They also explore the many exciting career opportunities in the science filed. Concepts and terminology discussed include: observing, solving problems, health, career, education, and sharing information.
Is psychology a science? Two case studies are given to explore the different ways to approach psychology, and to help students formulate their own opinions. Part of the "Core Concepts in Psychology" series.
Carl Pennypacker at UC Berkeley runs Universe Quest, a summer program supported by the National Science Foundation to engage girls in science exploration. Some of the summer activities include: looking through a world-class telescope, going out to the beach to measure tides, and designing online games.
Presents a brief history of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as well as the significance of its work and mission in today’s world.
Students use potatoes to demonstrate the importance of washing hands and handling food.
Race cars are loud. They don't have mufflers because mufflers will reduce the speed of the car. Spectators need to make sure they have adequate ear protection if they attend a NASCAR race. Part of "The Science of Speed" series.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams, graphics, and labels. For this particular video, students will focus on the steps of making scientifically sound observations. Part of the Science Video Vocab series.
How does yeast make bread grow? The scientists will experiment with the ingredients in bread to discover how this happens. They will also explain why time zones exist. Part of the House of Science Series.
How is meteorological information interpreted? A team takes a close up look at the methods, devices, and equipment used to generate, transmit, and process the information for the weather forecast. Part of Invisible Science and Technology Surrounding Series.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams, graphics, and labels. For this particular video, students will focus on procedures for conducting experiments in a science lab. These procedures ensure a safe environment for everyone. Part of the Science Video Vocab series.
How does the Earth travel around the sun? Here the scientists will create a sundial to find out. The scientists will also explain how a remote control works. Part of the House of Science Series.
The engine's job is to convert the energy in fuel to speed. With the application of scientific principles, NASCAR mechanics have discovered ways to quickly and efficiently get the race cars the speed they need to compete. Part of "The Science of Speed" series.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams, graphics, and labels. For this particular video, students will focus on the measurements of the International System of Units (SI). Part of the Science Video Vocab series.
