Let's Learn Science: Passionate About Plants with Teacher Helen B1+ CEFR
The Physics & Chemistry of Plants! STEM/STEAM, Afterschool / Homeschool Science
Quantum Physics for Kids
In this course we'll learn how photosynthesis works on the molecular level, make organic fertilizer using chemistry principles, explore how plants communicate and experiment with the biology of plant germination! STEAM/STEM #academic
US Grade 3 - 6
In this 4-session course, we'll learn about the fascinating physics and chemistry of plants! We'll explore the biological functions that allow plants to make their own food through photosynthesis, how plants communicate with each other using chemicals, and experiment with plant germination. Plus, we'll investigate the molecular basis of plant nutrition, and you'll learn how to make your own free & organic fertilizer using chemistry principles. This course investigates the following...
In Session 1, students will learn about: - The process of photosynthesis, including the chemical equations and reactions involved in photosynthesis - How photosynthesis works biologically within plant chloroplast cells - How plants enable the oxygenation of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans - How plant design and biology is influencing research into new photovoltaic solar cell designs and human-made photosynthesis projects In Session 2, students will learn about: - The Chemistry of Fertilizer using the N-P-K Formula (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) - How Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium support plant growth in different and specific ways - The role of Nitrogen-fixing plants and the concept of green living cover crops - The fundamentals of fertilizer chemistry. Students will learn several ideas for easy-to-make homemade fertilizers that can be used to support the growth of house plants and the home garden. In Session 3, students will learn about: - New research into plant sensing and plant communication - How complex plant ecosystems support the plant community - New research into the ways plants sense their environment and communicate both above ground and underground through a wide variety of chemical signals. In Session 4, students will learn about: Session 4: Chemistry of Plant Germination - How some plant seeds can remain viable for years - The chemical and biological processes of plant germination - How to germinate plants seeds, and a resource list of readily available edible sproutable seeds that students can grow at home
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
Assessments OfferedLearner progress will be assessed through in-class discussion and a fun, end-of-class quiz.
0Below is an optional supply list for the course. These items are not required to participate in class, and primarily consist of common household items. Also, please bring a pencil and paper to each class for a drawing activity. Optional Supplies List Class 1 (Photosynthesis) If available, bring a small living potted plant with green leaves to class. If you happen to have a plant at home with red leaves, please bring that to class as well. Class 2 (Fertilizer) If available, bring any of the following items to class. We’ll discuss how to use them to make homemade fertilizer: Used eggshells, used tea bags or tea leaves, used coffee grounds, any fruit or vegetable scraps (cut into small pieces) Class 3 (Communication) If available, bring a plant with a fragrance to class. Class 4 (Germination) If available, bring a small plastic container with a lid, and/or a glass jar, a few paper towels, and any of the following edible sproutable seeds: alfalfa, chickpeas, peas, lentils, wheat berries, oat berries (whole oats, not processed or flattened); or any available plant seeds.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We're excited to support your child in exploring quantum physics, science and inventions! Our classes are designed to get kids excited about physics and its impact on our lives, while supporting students in developing critical thinking skills. Our...
