- Science First Hand
- Series Description
Get a first-hand view of how teachers approach hands-on science activities and how students respond. These videos show three middle school teachers using class projects to help their students gain a deeper understanding of basic science principles such as force, simple machines, and mechanical advantage. Seeing these students questioning and experimenting makes a compelling case for encouraging exploration, and illustrates the testing process and how students learn from their role as researchers. Series release date: 1994
- Program Description
A seventh-grade class explores forces, tension, and compression as students design, build, and test models of houses, bridges, and towers. These middle-schoolers make a compelling case for encouraging individuals and group exploration and experimentation.
