Some Theory about Science and a Sense of Place

Some Theory about "Science and a Sense of Place"

Randal Holly, last summer's institute:
"What aspects of their world do our kids care about?
What would it distress them to lose? (Anything made of marble...??)
Can we use that as an incentive to learn?"

Projectile Motion

Projectile Motion

 

Have you ever wondered how an archer is able to aim their arrows “just right” in order to hit a target several (even hundreds) of meters away? Or, why soccer players kick the ball differently based on how far away they are from the goal? Both of these cases are examples of projectile motion- explained in detail by Sir Isaac Newton in the 17th century A.D.

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?
