1 – 11 of 11 Classroom Resources
Electricity, Anode, Cathode, Galvanic Cells, Redox Reaction, Renewable Energy | High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer related questions about the chemistry of batteries as they are used to power hybrid and electric cars. Students will learn about the basics of electricity, as well as how batteries function as a source of electricity.
Electricity, Anode, Cathode, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Renewable Energy | High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer related questions about the alternatives to petroleum-based fossil fuels such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells. Students will learn about the pros and cons of various fuel sources, as well as possibilities for the future of fuels.
Molecular Structure, Molecular Geometry, Polymers, Electronegativity, Heat, Temperature, Electricity | High School, Middle School
This video explores the fascinating and innovative scientific advancements of paint. Students will learn how the molecular components in paint are helping to evolve in the world around them. Futuristic paint is capable of replacing light switches, conducting electricity, and regulating temperature amongst other things!
Electricity, Renewable Energy, Photosynthesis, Electron Transfer, Redox Reaction, Oxidation, Reduction | High School
In this lesson students will make a dye-sensitized solar cell (also known as DSC or Gratzel cell) using extracts from blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, red cabbage, strawberries, beetroot, spinach and dried hibiscus petals. Students will measure the voltage and the current of various light sources using the created solar cells and then compare the effectiveness of each.
Metallic Bonding, Electrons, Electricity, Electrostatic Forces | High School
In this demonstration students will observe how electrons flow through a metal in an example of metallic bonding. Using tubes made of different metal materials as well as one made of plastic, in combination with a rare earth magnet (neodymium magnet) the teacher will demonstrate how electrons will flow freely through a metal and create a magnetic field.
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Galvanic Cells, Cathode, Anode | High School
This video explores the chemistry in the batteries that power hybrid and electric cars.
Electricity, Electrons | Elementary School
In this lab, students will learn about closed and open circuits. Students will use holiday lights, a battery, and foil to make a closed circuit.
Electricity, Anode, Cathode, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Renewable Energy | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video analyzes alternatives to petroleum based fossil fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells.
Electrostatic Forces, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Electricity, Electrons | High School
In this lab, students will better understand that opposite charges attract each other, and like charges repel.
Electricity, Atoms, Electrons, Electrons, Culminating Project, Interdisciplinary | Elementary School, Middle School
In this activity, students will learn that the flow of electrons within a closed circuit make our lives easier. Students will construct a circuit quiz box that lights up when the correct question and answer are chosen.
Electricity, Energy & Thermodynamics, Law of Conservation of Energy, Anode, Cathode, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Electrons | Middle School
In this lesson students will explore the chemical reaction that occurs within a lead-acid car battery and the role of the battery within a car prior to creating their own batteries.
