Your Weekly Education Content Kit: September 27th


Every Friday, those of us here at CK-12 Foundation like to recap what happened in thescience concept world of STEM education during the busy week. This week, we're digging some awesome news and finds in the world of science.

Here are just a few things we came across that are worth mentioning. We hope you enjoy them!

To Watch

  • String Theory is definitely not an easy science concept to teach. One teacher got creative and found this video called Bohemian Gravity to get her students interested in String Theory.
  • Science teachers can get excited for this one! A new collection of videos were just released on the common fruit fly, the nematode roundworm and baker's yeast. All three have had a significant impact on science concepts in the field of Biology.
  • Looking for videos for your science class? We love this Introduction to the Bunsen Burner.

To Read

  • Did you receive the CK-12 September newsletter? Check it out for detailsget real competition on CK-12's new features, the Get Real Competition, new STEM content and more!
  • The National Science Board (NSB) just released the STEM Education Data and Trends Tool for school districts and educators to find the answers to important questions about STEM education.

To Do

  • Here's a great idea for a class project or extra credit assignment! The CK-12 Get Real Competition challenges students to demonstrate the application of math and science concepts in the real world. The grand prize winner will receive a class set of the device of their choice (iPads, Kindles or Chromebooks). 

Now that you're all caught up, enjoy this parrot performing his own dub step beats!
