  • Science Screen Reports

    Posted by Christopher Harvey on 8/2/2019
    Greetings from SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT.  Over the past 12 months, we have been concentrating our efforts and resources on developing and fine tuning our OnLINE STEM Channel. Our new format provides access to 6 volumes of SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT (SSR), and 5 Volumes of SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT FOR KIDS (SSRFK), and it will be updated with new episodes throughout the year as production is completed.  The channel provides a separate Login for teachers to access the Teacher Guides, and a Login for students and their families.
     
    We are excited to deliver this new, easily navigable, visually stimulating and educational resource, courtesy of the of the Florida Healthcare Engineering Association.  Teachers appreciate access to this intriguing STEM content all on one centralized page.
     
    Here is a link to FHEA’s STEM Channel

  • Kansas School Naturalist

    Posted by Christopher Harvey on 2/22/2017

    The Kansas School Naturalist is a free resource for secondary science teachers.  The Kansas School Naturalist is a print publication that can be sent to teachers upon request.  Teachers can also access online and PDF versions of the resource at the KSN website.  Currently, there are about 175 issues online.

     

    PJ Duncan from FLDOE notes that a recent issue is of particular interest to students and teachers in Florida because of the accidental re-introduction of the screwworm in the Everglades and the Keys.  “Screwworm Eradication”  was written before the recent outbreak, and it is the very same USDA team that KSN worked with for this article that is now working day and night to eliminate the re-introduced fly in Florida.

     

    PJ Duncan from FLDOE also recommends checking out “Integrity in Scientific Research and Writing.” It covers many of the most common questions that students ask when writing research papers and lab reports.

     

    To access this resource please visit http://www.emporia.edu/ksn/.  If you should have further questions about KSN, please contact John Schrock, Editor KSN, at educationfrontlines@yahoo.com.
