One of the challenges to teaching Science is managing to perform experiments in a limited laboratory environment. When I taught Biology, for instance, it was difficult to conduct genetics experiments without breeding dozens of mice. Gizmos to the rescue! Gizmos is a program brought to us by Explore Learning that allows students to conduct laboratory experiments that they could not otherwise perform in a classroom.
Mrs. Winkles' Physics students are learning about momentum by adjusting the mass and velocity of gliders on a frictionless air track - all from the convenience of a laptop!
