In this basic chemistry course, we will explore different types of natural pH indicators that can differentiate Acids and Bases. It is important to have a solid foundation in this topic by understanding what is an Acid, Base and their range on the pH Scale.
Simple Science Experiment.
Feel free to try this activity at home which displays Air Pressure. It will enhance your understanding on how atmospheric pressure works although we easily take it for granted since its all around us.
Look out for more neat science tricks conducted by Jason, our STEM Bus facilitator.
This course simplifies what is Fire and the elements necessary to sustain a burning flame. The fire triangle is an easy way to remember this concept as we explore the cause and effect of bush fires. We need to play our part in managing and mitigating these risks. It is very important to know the relevant emergency agencies when dealing with fire or even a bus fire.
Join us as we explore the science behind FIRE...
Conduct your own Diffusion experiments and determine what conditions affect the rate of diffusion.
Diffusion is the movement of particles from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration until it is evenly distributed.
Learn simple science concepts that you can try at home.
Energy is all around us and within us. Join the brief course to better understand what is Energy and its different types. We are focusing on Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy. Learn their formulae and how or when to use them.
Use your Energy wisely and learn more.
Let's continue in our exploration of motion.
This course outlines Newton's Third Law of Motion where you have often heard, "Every action has an equal but opposite reaction!"
Journey with us as we explore this concept with easy to follow along STEM activities.
A fun STEM activity anyone can do!
Origami is the art of folding paper and it was derived from the Japanese culture. This discipline focuses on angles, symmetry and precision while developing patience as the user completes the given activity.
We are starting with a basic construction of a penguin and will post more difficult builds in the weeks ahead.
FUN Scavenger Hunt!
It's time to look and search until you find the required items. Use your phone to snap a picture to confirm the item using a QR Code. Once completed, you will learn to create your own Scavenger Hunt as a challenge that you can share with friends.
Let the hunting begin...
Be creative with your message or design!
Using a natural pH Indicator, you can reveal any hidden messages or designs created from a base solution. For further information on Acids, Bases and Indicators please check out this course.
Have fun deciphering secret messages with friends and family.
This is a great opportunity for you Science lovers to better understand introductory Chemistry and Physics on the topic of Matter. Learn what is a state of matter and its 4 distinct phase. Also, you will learn what's the main factor outside of pressure (1 atmosphere) that contributes to particles arranging in a particular state such as Solid or Liquid, etc.
Please join the course and understand the connection in states of matter.
Albert Einstein won the noble prize not for "General Relativity" but his discovery of the Photoelectric Effect which highlights the conversion of Light Energy into Electric Energy.
This type of technology is very practical in today's world such as renewable energy of the solar panel, photostatic copying and light meters used in photography.
