Virtual Roadshow

  • Virtual Roadshow Videos and NGSS https://youtu.be/fc3P3fHkHc4 
    • In this video Ali Baas (an award-winning Junior High and High School teacher and PhD student in Curriculum and Instruction) speaks about how the Virtual Roadshow videos can be used to teach three-dimensionally and across NGSS standards. 
  • Sensory Integration of Taste & Smell with Dr. Brummond https://youtu.be/6H0qipUtVGY
    • After watching this video with Dr. Karagh Brummond, you'll be able to perform a simple experiment that allows you to experience the integration of taste and smell. 

      This video fits 4-LS1-2 from the NGSS really well and links to MS-LS1-8.

  • DNA extraction with Liam Sydney https://youtu.be/DvRAEkkjhlQ 
    • After watching this video featuring Liam and Sydney, you will be able to extract DNA from either a banana or saliva. You will be able to explain why household reagents allow DNA extraction!

      The following learning standards are relevant to this video:

      [MS-LS1-2], [MS-PS1-2], [5-PS1-1], [HS-LS-1], [HS-LS3-1], [HS-LS4-1]

  • June Night Sky with Jessica and Cristilyn https://youtu.be/EFCwdQX1vMs
    • After watching this video you'll be able to identify features in the night sky this month (June 2020). You'll also be able to share some knowledge and stories related to these night sky features to a star-gazing buddy!
      This vodcast could be linked to Wyoming standards: 1-ESS1-1, 1-ESS1-2, 5-ESS1-2, MS-ESS1-1, MS-ESS1-2, MS-ESS1-3, *Jessica also dives into General Relativity and why Newtonian mechanics does not apply on Mercury. I am not finding standards for General Relativity.
  •  Garden Chemistry with Mercedes https://youtu.be/i9PfvC5gL0M
    •  In this vodcast, Mercedes explains the chemistry of natural weed killers. This links to MS-PS1-5 and HS-PS1-5 Matter and its Interactions.
  • How the Brain Learns Best with Rachel https://youtu.be/-K4IlVgT01s
    • After watching this vodcast with Rachel, you'll be able to identify conditions/environments in which your brain works best. 
  • Writing a laboratory notebook with Rachel https://youtu.be/gNq1JeikykM
    • In this vodcast, you will learn how to maintain a lab notebook. Rachel works through the process of preparing the lab notebook, planning an experiment, performing an experiment (isolating microbial colonies from a sourdough starter culture) and documenting that experiment. This vodcast was designed for 7th grade through college Senior but could even be appealing to K-7. It can be linked to many standards: K-LS1-1, K-ESS2-2, K-ESS3-1, K-2-ETS1-2 (communicating through sketches), 2-PS1-4, 2-LS4-1, 3-LS4-3, MS-LS2-1, MS-LS2-3, MS-LS2-4 (microbial ecosystems), MS-LS4-5 (artificial selection with selective media), MS-ETS1-2, MS-ETS1-3, MS-ETS2-1, HS-LS2-1. The overt standards are the ELA / Literacy connections I think: RST.6-8.3, WHST.6-8.7. It’s interesting that doing science is just an ELA connection? This should be the most important science standard. Reach out to me if I am misinterpreting!
  • Virtual Roadshow Mule Deer with Rhiannon https://youtu.be/e_U-fMHfi6Y 
    • In this Virtual Roadshow, you will learn with Rhiannon about how Wildlife Ecologists discover how fawn (baby Mule Deer) learn to migrate. This video links well to Wyoming Standard 4-LS1-2!
  • Performing Coffee Filter Chromatography in the Kitchen with Ella and Rachel  HTTPS://youtu.be/TIu6qciQXzw 
    • (Links to the following standards: Matter and Its Interactions [5-PS-3], [2-PS-2], Energy [5-PS-1], From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes [MS-DLLS-6], [HS-DLLS-5])
  • Using Red Cabbage to Create a Natural pH indicator with Ella HTTPS://youtu.be/1C_jnIN_Wig
    • (It seems to me that the standards are missing overt mention of hydrogen ion concentration as a pivotal physical and biological measure? - if anyone has ideas of how they would relate this to the standards, shout out!)
  • Drawing a Galaxy with Jessica HTTPS://youtu.be/UDp4bOIz42A 
    • Links to the following standards: Earths Place in the Universe [1-HESS-1], [MS-HESS-2], [HS-HESS-1]and probably also [K-2-BETS-2] at least with respect to the concepts; Fusion reactions might link to 4-PS-2, Matter and Its Interactions [MS-PS-2], [HS-PS-4], [HS-PS-8])
  •  Universal Expansion with Jessica HTTPS://youtu.be/V38Jf9f-lQo
    • Links to Wyoming Science standards: 1-HESS-1 and 5-HESS-2 (awesome activity for rates of change)
  • Making Kombucha and doing Kitchen Microbiology with Rachel (likely High-school age but may appeal to younger audiences if parents/teachers vet) HTTPS://youtu.be/iXhfBogdpvM
    • Links to: MS-DLLS-3, MS-DLLS-6, MS-DLLS-7, MS-DLLS-1, MS-DLLS-4, MS-DLLS-5 (microbial ecosystem)
  • Performing Coffee Filter Chromatography in the Kitchen with Ella and Rachel  HTTPS://youtu.be/TIu6qciQXzw 
    • Links to Wyoming Science standards: Matter and Its Interactions [5-PS-3], [2-PS-2], Energy [5-PS-1], From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes [MS-DLLS-6], [HS-DLLS-5])
  • Using Red Cabbage to Create a Natural pH indicator with Ella HTTPS://youtu.be/1C_jnIN_Wig
    • This could be used as phenomenon for PS.A and B in the progressions, but also PS.D. Thanks Ali, for helping us see this connection)
  • Drawing a Galaxy with Jessica HTTPS://youtu.be/UDp4bOIz42A 
    • Links to the following standards: Earth’s Place in the Universe [1-HESS-1], [MS-HESS-2], [HS-HESS-1]and probably also [K-2-BETS-2] at least with respect to the concepts; Fusion reactions might link to 4-PS-2, Matter and Its Interactions [MS-PS-2], [HS-PS-4], [HS-PS-8])
