Experiland was founded in 2010 as an on-line science experiment e-book store, dedicated to young science students, their parents and teachers and other young at heart science enthusiasts.
Written by retired grade K-8 science teachers, great care has been put into each of our science projects to provide the science student of today with the basic knowledge of the scientific principles of our world.
Even though the World Wide Web might be overflowing with an abundance of science project information, we realized that a need for well written and categorized science project books exist to help young students create high quality science fair projects or just have fun while learning about science hands-on.
Experiland.com is currently the Internet’s largest and leading provider of fun science project and experiment educational e-books.
The 50 projects contained in this science experiment e-book cover a wide range of Electricity & Magnetism topics; from Static electricity & Electrical current to Resistance & Magnetism… there are even experiments on electro-magnetism and solid state electronics all designed for young students from grade 1 to 8! With this book, you are sure to find a project that interests you. When you are interested in a certain science topic, you will have more fun, and learn more, too!
With the help of this book, you will construct many weird, wonderful and wacky experiments that you can have hours of fun with! Amongst many others, you will make a light bulb shine using a lemon as a battery, Make a quiz board connected in series to learn about electrical circuit, make a compass to experiment with magnetism, and create a telegraph machine to see the science of electro-magnetism in action!
Other fun experiments include: Other fun experiments include making an electrical door bell for your room, removing the tarnish off silverware using an electrolyte, how to tell which battery terminal is positive and which is negative, using a solar powered calculator to measure light levels, generating electricity by means of induction, picking up metal objects with your own electromagnet, making magnets float on top of one other, making ordinary steel objects magnetic, building a Franklin bells device for detecting high voltage lightning storms, building your own intruder detector, rain alarm, foxhole radio, electrical light bulb, electroscope and many, many more! When making these gadgets, you’ll discover that science is a part of every object in our daily lives, and who knows, maybe someday you will become a famous inventor too!
Science can be real simple and is actually only about understanding the world you live in! Science certainly does not need to be complicated formulas, heavy text books and geeky guys in white lab coats with thick glasses. Science experiments are an awesome part of science that allows you to engage in cool and exciting hands on learning experiences that you are sure to enjoy and remember! By working through the science experiments in this book, you will learn about science in the best possible way – by doing things yourself.
Designed with safety in mind, most of the items you will need for the experiments, such as jars, aluminium foil, scissors and sticky tape, you can find around your home. Others, such as magnets, lenses or a compass, you will be able to buy quite cheaply at a hobby shop or hardware store.
Successful K-12 STEM Education defines a framework for understanding "success" in K-12 STEM education. The book focuses its analysis on the science and mathematics parts of STEM and outlines criteria for identifying effective STEM schools and programs. Because a school's success should be defined by and measured relative to its goals, the book identifies three important goals that share certain elements, including learning STEM content and practices, developing positive dispositions toward STEM, and preparing students to be lifelong learners. A successful STEM program would increase the number of students who ultimately pursue advanced degrees and careers in STEM fields, enhance the STEM-capable workforce, and boost STEM literacy for all students. It is also critical to broaden the participation of women and minorities in STEM fields.
Successful K-12 STEM Education examines the vast landscape of K-12 STEM education by considering different school models, highlighting research on effective STEM education practices, and identifying some conditions that promote and limit school- and student-level success in STEM. The book also looks at where further work is needed to develop appropriate data sources. The book will serve as a guide to policy makers; decision makers at the school and district levels; local, state, and federal government agencies; curriculum developers; educators; and parent and education advocacy groups.
