Physicist Brian Greene explains superstring theory, the idea that minscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 19-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level. Less

This OLogy activity challenges students to find nine inventions that Einstein's ideas helped to create. The activity begins with an illustration of Al's Junk Shop. Mixed in with his junk are a Global Positioning System, CD player, computer, calculator, scanner, laser pointer, TV, and representations of both laser surgery and nuclear energy. After making a mental list of their nine choices, students can click to a second page to check their answers. Each invention has a rollover note about how Einstein's ideas helped pave the way for its creation. Alternately, the first page could be printed and used as a handout for an offline activity. Less

Intensive reading and analysis of key works in the history and historiography of science. Introduces students to basic interpretive issues, bibliographic sources, and professional standards. Topics change from year to year. This seminar explores recent historiographical approaches within the history of science. Students will read a wide variety of studies covering topics from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, from the physical sciences to natural history and medicine. Emphasis will be placed on: deciphering different theoretical approaches; the pros and cons of different research questions, subjects, and sources of evidence; and what makes for good and interesting history of science.

This OLogy trivia game offers a fun way to test kids' knowledge of light. The game board (included in a printable PDF) represents an atom, with a central nucleus circled by two orbits. Each player represents an electron that has been bumped into the atom's outer unstable orbit. Kids answer the questions about light on the trivia cards (included in a printable PDF) as they move around, circling the outer orbit. The first player to make it around the game board pops back into the stable orbit, emits light from the atom, and wins. Two additional overview articles are included with the activity: Where Do Photons Come From? and Einstein Sheds Some Light on a Mystery. Less

This brief OLogy article helps kids understand that even Einstein made mistakes and didn't always finish everything he started. And, more importantly, that both his mistakes and his unfinished work also led to new ways of thinking. The article uses Einstein's Unified Field Theory as evidence of the value that can be found in imperfection. Less

OLogy is a science web site for kids ages 7 through 12, created by the American Museum of Natural History. It is based on the premise that "everyone wants to know something," and is designed as a place for kids to explore, ask questions, get answers, meet OLogists, play games, and see what other kids are interested in. With age-appropriate content in archaeology, astronomy, biodiversity, earth science, genetics, marine biology, paleontology, and physical science, OLogy makes science learning rich and engaging. A "For Educators" section of the site provides an After-School Educator's Guide to Ology with suggestions and tips on how to use the OLogy web site, as well as an index to sort by grade, title, resource type, and topic.

Physics for Future Presidents Spring, 2006. The title is serious. The official designation is Physics 10 and is sometimes called qualitative physics -- but this is not trivial physics. You will be learning material that is generally not learned by the physicist until after earning a Ph.D. After every lecture, you should come away with the feeling that what was just covered is important for every world leader to know. Topics covered may vary and may include energy and conservation, radioactivity, nuclear physics, the Theory of Relativity, lasers, explosions, earthquakes, superconductors, and quantum physics. Less
