Science & Nature

STEM- Engineering- Science Experiment Club!

In this ongoing course we will do a science experiment per week, some pertaining to electricity, and circuitry, but mostly teaching how to be good with your hands and build what you want how you want it.

How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the scientific method and hopefully get to the point where they enjoy conducting experiments on their own and have the ability to do so safely, accurately, and appropriately. 
I am an application engineer and have been for the entirety of my professional life, using my hands every day to build things and conduct "experiments" in my workplace to execute designs and projects to scope. I have also been a avid science aficionado since I could walk, conducting small experiments with my dad (also an engineer) through high school and into present day. Every facet of conducting an experiment is fascinating to me and I will bring passion and knowledge to the class that some learners may not get at home or even in school. 
There will be no mandatory homework, but if the learners want to work on the experiment of the week ahead of time, or after class they can and I will be available to help. 
Materials for Elephant Toothpaste Empty plastic bottle Dry yeast (found in the baking section of the grocery store) Warm water Liquid dish soap 3% hydrogen peroxide Measuring cups Measuring spoons Safety glasses Large tub or tray to catch the foam Location for the activity that can tolerate spills (of hydrogen peroxide as well as possibly food coloring), such as a kitchen or bathroom—or an outdoor location Liquid food coloring (optional) Different-shaped bottles or glasses (optional) Preparation Put on your safety glasses to do this activity because hydrogen peroxide can irritate your eyes. (Note: although the product of this activity resembles toothpaste, it is not toothpaste, so do not attempt to use it!) Gather your materials in the location where you plan to do your activity. Place your plastic bottle on the tray or tub so that it is easy to clean up all the foam.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed every few weeks with a written experiment, assessing their knowledge of the scientific method and how to apply it. Creating a hypothesis, making a prediction based off of the hypothesis, testing the hypothesis, then using the results to get the real answer proving your hypothesis right or wrong. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There may be experiments that require materials that some parents would want to supervise such as a hot glue gun, or a razor knife, but I will make all parents aware of an experiment like that at least a week beforehand.
