Admit it…you’ve always wondered about the physics of “My Little Pony.”
It’s cool. I have too.
That’s why I’m sharing this video.
But seriously…how cool is that? The student presents a situation, provides assumptions and calculations, and then provides how the situation could be fixed. Granted, a lot of the solutions are humorous, but students should be able to laugh in our classrooms. School is a part of life, so let’s have students bring their lives into school.
I found this inspiring video the other day while perusing through all of my favorites on the Twitter machine and it got me thinking.
Twitter is a great resource for teachers. I’ve lurked on #edchat #scichat and #ntchat (education chat, science education chat, and new teacher chat, respectively). I follow other teachers for support, inspiration, and great teaching ideas. A while ago, one of the science teachers tweeted this video that included one of his tweets with the hashtag #IAmScience.
Everyone has their story when it comes to science. I’ve posted a similar blog before about falling in love with science but it’s just such a great story to tell. So here’s mine – in 140 characters or less.
Wanted to be a vet – didn’t keep the As. Fell in love with teaching science and never looked back #scied
