Red Hot?

The color of temperature 

 Have you ever heard or used the expression, "red hot"?  You've probably heard (perhaps in art class) that colors on the left end of the visible light spectrum (red, orange, yellow) referred to as warm colors, while those on the right side of the visible light spectrum (green, blue, violet) referred to as cool colors.  But, do our observations in the world of science match our observations in the world of everyday living? 

Begin by writing down at least five things that you use every day that are or would be hot to the touch.  What color are they?

A Sense of Place--and Movement

Hi. I'm Anne Dalke. Like some of you, I'm trying to make the move, now, from "brain and behavior" to "science and a sense of place..."



I'm also working very hard this summer on finding a new, personally designed 'sense of place.' I'm living a tandem life, going back and forth between my so-beautiful farm and family life in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and my so-engaging work and colleagues @ Bryn Mawr.

Hey folks...I'm Graham Phillips, a 5th/6th grade science teacher from The Baldwin School right here in Bryn Mawr, PA.  I teach chemistry/physics, primarily, and have taught up to 8th grade in Science and up to 12th grade in Mathematics. 

 As you can see from my picture, I love to travel.  Can you guess where this was taken?  I also love singing and dancing (I probably would have become an actor if my head wasn't turned on so tight!)

Science as loopy, story telling/revising rather than truth/facts

"I was intrigued when asked to decide rather or not the earth was round or flat. At first this seemed to be an easy question to answer based on what we are taught but by the end of the disscussion I was left questioning I had learned. We were given several more questions of this type and at the end I always questioned what I had been taught." .... Deidre
