The Magic School Bus is an award winning animated children’s television series based on the book series of the same title by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. Phoebe is to participate in a slam-dunk during contest at half time of the big basketball game. The problem is Phoebe can't jump high enough. "If only gravity didn't pull on me." she moans. Never one to be tied down, Ms. Frizzle sends the class into space and turns the Bus into a planet — with adjustable gravity. The class finds basketball's a snap with low gravity and a riot with no gravity at all, but when there's way too much gravity, things get really heavy.
Size, weight, density, color, and texture are just a few of the ways to characterize matter. Students also learn ways to measure matter. Concepts and terminology include characteristic, physical, chemical, density, particles, and weight.
Dr. Ronald Evans reviews how cell receptors called PPARs regulate body weight by controlling fat burning or storage. Part of the 2004 Howard Hughes Holiday Lecture Series.
The Standard Deviants explore the concept of work. Students learn how to find an object's kinetic energy and explore the law of universal gravitation. Other topics covered include potential energy, the work-energy principle, and the universal gravitation constant. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
An expert on exercise physiology discusses the importance of different elements of fitness, and teenagers share personal stories about how exercise helped them achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Exercise also helps build strength, develop endurance, improve agility, boost self-confidence, and connect socially. John Ratey, a professor of psychiatry, describes the growing evidence that aerobic exercise remodels our brains, making us sharper mentally, and providing protection against mood disorders. Teens describe how exercise helped them deal with depression, anxiety, and stress.
Students learn the process of weighing common objects. Concepts and terminology include matter, mass, weight, scale, and metric system.
Nobelium is a synthetic element, and thus a standard atomic weight cannot be given. Like all synthetic elements, it has no stable isotopes.

Students explore the life cycle of plants. This video discusses the process of plant development from a small seed to a mature plant.
Hydrogen is the chemical element with the symbol H and atomic number 1. With a standard atomic weight of 1.008, hydrogen is the lightest element in the periodic table.
Matter is everywhere. Students learn how to describe, observe, and measure matter. Additional concepts and terminology include mass, weight, volume, density, hardness, texture, shape, flammability, size, and physical and chemical properties of matter.
Dr. Jeffery Friedman introduces the genes and circuits that control appetite, including the key role of leptin. Part of the 2004 Howard Hughes Holiday Lecture Series.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams and colorful, animated graphics and labels. Begins with a simple definition of the term and concludes with a critical thinking question. For this particular video, students will focus on the term scalars. Part of the Science Video Vocab Series.
Students will explore the physical and chemical properties of matter. Special attention is paid to the method by which matter is measured. Length, mass, weight and volume of common everyday matter is discussed. Other topics covered include the metric system, meter, kilogram, gram, liter, water displacement, and density.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams and colorful, animated graphics and labels. Begins with a simple definition of the term and concludes with a critical thinking question. For this particular video, students will focus on the term gravity. Part of the Science Video Vocab Series.
This video discusses the principle of force and the application of Newton's three laws of motion. Through the use of real-world examples, students will witness the effect of friction on force. Other topics covered include inertia, weight, mass, gravity, and the law of universal gravitation.
NASCAR corners are divided into three parts because the car's grip changes in different parts of a turn. The center of gravity in the car challenges crew chiefs to minimize weight shift around a turn. Equipment like the seven-post rig helps, but the ultimate test is on the track. Part of "The Science of Speed" series.
For optimal performance, all the components of a race care must be balanced. Getting the right balance is hard because the weight of the fuel changes and the tires wear during the race. Crew chiefs make sure the cars are ready to race through the application of scientific principles. Part of "The Science of Speed" series.
The Standard Deviants discuss the three laws of Sir Isaac Newton. This branch of study is also known as Newtonian physics, and it applies to everyday conditions of speed, time, and gravitational pull. Other topics covered include forces in equilibrium, mass as opposed to weight, inertia, static and kinetic friction, and tension. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
The evolution of the uses of corn coincides with some significant historical events. Throughout history, it has been a staple in the human diet, but in the 1950’s, it became the main ingredient in the meat industry. Farmers used corn to shrink the growth periods of cattle to meet the demand of the consumer. Corn syrup was born from the Cuban Embargo. Today, genetically engineered corn is seen in nonfood products.
Timeblazers Sam and Jen go back to a time when ancient Chinese civilizations were using cowrie shells as currency and when buying a water buffalo meant coughing up the animal's weight in coins. They flash forward to the 1800s, when goods could be purchased in exchange for beaver pelts. Then to the middle of the 1400s, when "gold fever" gripped the imaginations of explorers who dreamed of finding the fabled city of El Dorado, but it was the California gold strike in 1849 that brought more than 50,000 prospectors to the West in search of easy riches.
