Anti-Gravity Mirror

In this demonstration, amaze learners by performing simple tricks using mirrors. These tricks take advantage of how a mirror can reflect your right side so it appears to be your left side. To make the effect more dramatic, cover the mirror with a cloth, climb onto the table, straddle the mirror, and then drop the cloth as you appear to "take off." This resource contains information about how this trick was applied during the making of the movie "Star Wars."

Back Home in the Heart — Yoga Ed.
Rating

"‘Tis the season of gratitude and reflection, of homecomings and joyous tidings... At least, that’s what the end-of-year holiday time usually brings. While we acknowledge that this year has been anything but usual, simply saying “2020 is different” feels like too obvious an understatement.

Many of us simply aren’t ready or even willing to reflect on a year of thwarted plans, grave safety concerns, and extraordinary challenges to our core values and identities. Even so, we realize that some kind of closure, however small or personal, is essential to moving forward with courage and wholeheartedness.

With this toolkit, we share our favorite practices for heart-centered breathwork, movement and mindful presence. The journey of returning to joy can carry us through sorrow, anger or exhaustion, and we provide tools here to support you with release, relief and rest.

In this toolkit, you’ll find practices for:

Hope

Rest

Reflection

Joy

Connection

Processing Grief

Letting Go

Sitting with Stress

Beating the Motion Sensor
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Lighting is responsible for nearly one-third of the electricity use in buildings. One of the best ways to conserve energy is to make sure the lights are turned off when no one is in a room. This process can be automated using motion sensors. In this activity, students explore material properties as they relate to motion detection, and use that knowledge to make design judgments about what types of motion detectors to use in specific applications.

Concentrated Solar Power
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Students learn how the total solar irradiance hitting a photovoltaic (PV) panel can be increased through the use of a concentrating device, such as a reflector or lens. This is the final lesson in the Photovoltaic Efficiency unit and is intended to accompany a fun design project (see the associated Concentrating on the Sun with PVs activity) to wrap up the unit. However, it can be completed independently of the other unit lessons and activities.

Concentrating on the Sun with PVs

Educational Use
Rating

Students design, build and test reflectors to measure the effect of solar reflectance on the efficiency of solar PV panels. They use a small PV panel, a multimeter, cardboard and foil to build and test their reflectors in preparation for a class competition. Then they graph and discuss their results with the class. Complete this activity as part of the Photovoltaic Efficiency unit and in conjunction with the Concentrated Solar Power lesson.

Corner Reflector
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In this optics/mathematics activity, learners use two hinged mirrors to create a kaleidoscope that shows multiple images of an object. Learners discover that the number of images reflected in the mirrors depends on the angle between the mirrors. Learners also observe that when they set the hinged mirrors on top of a third mirror, they create a reflector that always sends light back in the direction from which it came. Use this activity to introduce basic principles of light and optics including angle of reflection and angle of incidence.

Determining Concentration
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Students quantify the percent of light reflected from solutions containing varying concentrations of red dye using LEGO© MINDSTORMS© NXT bricks and light sensors. They begin by analyzing a set of standard solutions with known concentrations of food coloring, and plot data to graphically determine the relationship between percent reflected light and dye concentration. Then they identify dye concentrations for two unknown solution samples based on how much light they reflect. Students gain an understanding of light scattering applications and how to determine properties of unknown samples based on a set of standard samples.

ELA B30: Assess and Reflect Activities
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This activity was designed to be used in the ELA B30 Distance Learning Course on Moodle. It could easily be adapted to use within a face-to-face classroom. The ability for students to assess their own writing and reflect on their strengths and weaknesses is an important component of the ELA B30 course. Currently, the AR activities are embedded within the section work in the course but many students miss doing these reflections or don’t see the connections between assessing their responses and how this leads to better learning in the future. The new assessment and reflection package is designed to help students set goals that they wish to work towards in ELA B30 and have them measure how well they are achieving those goals.

The study of clouds (where they occur, their characteristics, etc) plays a key role in the understanding of climate change. This site discusses how the relative thickness and altitude of various cloud types result in their either reflecting solar radiation or transmitting and trapping it, thereby warming Earth's surface. It features text, a scientific illustration, and links to other relevant topics and datasets.

Exploring Light: Absorb, Reflect, Transmit or Refract?
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

In a hands-on way, students explore light's properties of absorption, reflection, transmission and refraction through various experimental stations within the classroom. To understand absorption, reflection and transmission, they shine flashlights on a number of preselected objects. To understand refraction, students create indoor rainbows. An understanding of the fundamental properties of light is essential to designing an invisible laser security system.

A FRAMEWORK FOR HIGH QUALITY PROJECT BASED LEARNING
Rating

More and more educators around the world, both in and out of the classroom, believe that Project Based Learning (PBL) is an important instructional approach that enables students to master academic skills and content knowledge, develop skills necessary for future success, and build the personal agency needed to tackle life’s and the world’s challenges. All students, no matter where they live or what their background, deserve access to high quality Project Based Learning.

This framework progresses through 6 criteria: INTELLECTUAL CHALLENGE AND ACCOMPLISHMENT, AUTHENTICITY, PUBLIC PRODUCT, COLLABORATION, PROJECT MANAGEMENT, REFLECTION
