The Axolotl: A Cut Above the Rest
Rating

The axolotl is a Mexican salamander with an incredible ability: Cut its leg off, and the limb will grow right back! How it does this and why humans can't is still a bit of a mystery. Researchers like Susan Bryant of UC Irvine are studying these amphibians to understand the underlying mechanisms for their miraculous regenerative powers.

Bozeman Science: Momentum
Rating

In this video Paul Andersen will first define momentum as the product of an objects mass and velocity. He will then demonstrate how a net force acting on an object will change the momentum in the direction of the force. Several problems will be included.

Chemical Magic - Classic Clock Reaction
Rating

Two clear liquids are mixed together and the audience is told to watch closely... "Don't take your eyes off the liquid or you'll miss it!" Then, in a flash, the water changes to ink (or so they think!). Clock reactions like this never fail to capture the students attention, and the Iodine Clock Reaction is one of the most startling chemical demonstrations you'll ever see. How did that happen? is almost always the reaction, and when students ask How?, theyre ready to learn.

Collision Lab
Rating

Use an air hockey table to investigate simple collisions in 1D and more complex collisions in 2D. Experiment with the number of discs, masses, and initial conditions. Vary the elasticity and see how the total momentum and kinetic energy changes during collisions.

Cosmic Microwave Background Explained
Rating

HAS SPACE ALWAYS BEEN BLACK? As long as we've been around, YES. But the universe gets much more exciting, AND much BRIGHTER, as we start winding our clocks back to the early days of the universe. Near the beginning of the universe, when space was rapidly expanding, that dark night sky we know so well as actuallyÉORANGE! But why? Did the lights just go out, or did something more spectacular happen? Watch this episode of PBS Space Time and find out!

Evidence of a Chemical Reaction Part 1
Rating

This is part one "Evidence of a Chemical Reaction." I conducted 4 demonstrations showing one or more of the following characteristics: a color change, precipitate formation, gas production, and a temperature change (either exothermic or endothermic). Part 2 of this video completes the aluminum foil and copper chloride demonstration and reviews the important concepts that were shared.

From DNA to Silly Putty
Rating

You are made of polymers, and so are trees and telephones and toys. A polymer is a long chain of identical molecules (or monomers) with a range of useful properties, like toughness or stretchiness -- and it turns out, we just can't live without them. Polymers occur both naturally -- our DNA is a polymer -- and synthetically, like plastic, Silly Putty and styrofoam. Jan Mattingly explains how polymers have changed our world.

The Greenhouse Effect
Rating

The temperature of earth has been relatively constant over time. This is possible because as the planet absorbs solar radiation, it also emits longwave radiation into space. Despite this radiative equilibrium, some longwave radiation remains trapped beneath the atmosphere of the earth and warms the surface of the earth. This phenomenon is called the "greenhouse effect."

Rating

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.
