Glenn Seaborg was the chair of the The National Commission on Excellence in Education that produced the now famous report, "A Nation At Risk." that described the state of American science education at that time. This report was written 10 years later and indicates what, if any, progress has been made in implementing the changes recommended in the initial report.

Dr. Demo's Science Demonstrations (You should examine all sites below and realize that at present we have some duplication of activities.) Ultimate Science Demonstration Page This page is the result of a visit to Texas Tech and Dr. Julie Thomas. I was invited to work with her students and in the process, we video taped many of the demonstrations that day. Dr. Thomas then gave the task to graduate student, (whose name I must add at this point) and he created this magnificent layout. This site contains lesson plans, key step photos, and many quicktime videos. Have fun!! Denver Demos (Sixty Demos in Sixty Minutes) The UN-L Secondary Science Methods class of 1998, along with Dr. Gerry Saunders' Colorado class, did a fantastic job with their NSTA presentation titiled: Sixty Demos in Sixty Minutes. Over 400 teachers were in attendance that day. This site at present only offers lesson plans. Future methods classes are going to add to the layout. Biology Demonstrations are very difficult to find. Here are a couple of sites that offer several demonstrations and activities.

The first thing Monday I'll go over the course and what is expected. We have already bought each of you some special supplies for $10, due Monday. See you the first day: Monday June 9 7:30 am , in room CP102. PHYSICS 691 ADVANCED PHYSICAL SCIENCE Tentative SCHEDULE/SYLLABUS Dr. James Watson Ph: 765/285-8874 Home: 289-3119 HOMEWORK: Read the appropriate chapter related to the topic . Apply topic to everyday events and formulate questions and answer them or ask in class. Complete lab write-ups. CLASS: You should be able to discuss and answer basic questions in each topic below and know and understand the basic laws of physical science. Class format will mainly be laboratory discovery, exploration and concept development by using the toys you bring and the ones you purchase from us.

A "small-is-beautiful" approach to upgrading a beginning geophysics course
Seth Stein and John E. DeLaughter
Department of Geological Sciences,
Northwestern University

Evanston IL 60208 Considerable attention is now directed toward improving earth science curricula, as illustrated by both presentations at national scientific meetings and discussions in the literature. Much of the discussion addresses large-scale changes, such as the development of new degree programs [e.g. Stein, 1996 ]. Such reforms can be very successful, but require lengthy interactions with university bureaucracies. A complementary approach is to upgrade individual courses or groups of them. This approach has the advantage of being doable by individual faculty, without bureaucracy, and on small (or zero) budgets. We have been taking such a "small is beautiful" [ Schumacher, 1973 ] or "faster, cheaper, better" approach to upgrade our introductory geophysics course. In discussion with colleagues elsewhere, we have found interest in this effort, and so summarize it briefly in the hope of encouraging discussions of similar experiments elsewhere. We have begun with a beginning geophysics course required of geology majors, and taken as a distribution course by engineering majors. It provides a relatively rigorous and homework-intensive overview of the structure and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets, at a level higher than a descriptive "Geology 1" class, but lower than the standard introduction to geophysics for seniors or first year graduate students. For example, in this class we typically present without proof results such as Snell's law, which will be derived in later courses.

Expansive middle school curricula for scientific investigation
The Middle School Science Gateways simulation activities cover topics in Physical Science, Life Science, and the Human Body. Through easy interactive learning activities students explore various topics in science, which help them, gain an in-depth understanding of science concepts. The primary focus of this course is science content and skills geared for middle school grade students with an emphasis on qualitative learning. Teachers use Gateways activities in teaching science as tools to successfully demonstrate phenomena that are difficult for students to understand, are time consuming or even dangerous to experiment with. Students are able to independently run experiments, manipulate variables, and instantly see the results. Students can also repeat an experiment as needed to reinforce learning of a particular concept. They are asked to predict the outcome of an experiment, run the experiment and then validate their prediction. Although attention is given on qualitative learning, students gather and analyze data for a better understanding of a variety of scientific concepts. The Middle School Science Gateways Series contains 3 multiple-unit titles.
