Give your class an opportunity to participate in a live, interactive experience between your students and a LEARNnco educator through videoconferencing.  LEARNnco programs are a perfect way to integrate STEM curriulum into your classroom!


These 40 minute sessions were developed using established National Science Standards as a framework for fun interaction.  These programs correlate to the Ohio Academic Contents standards and provide hands-on group exploration between the LEARNnco coordinator and the classroom.  All sessions are personalized with the format adjusted according to the ages and ability levels of the participating sites.



Program Costs

Physical Science Modules 

Forces and Motion:  Introduce your students to the forces of movement by performing experiments implementing Newton's Laws of Motion.


Electricity:  Students will explore the concepts and principles of electricity.  Activities to include like and unlike charges, current flow, conductors, static electricity and parallel and series circuits.


Energy:  Find out the principles behind energy and its many forms, none of which looks like energy.


Matter Matters:  Everything around us is matter in one form or another.  The air we breathe, the food we eat, the books we read, our bodies--all of these things consist of matter.


Light Science:  Lights, lasers and optical illusions are used to describe the journey light takes from formation until it becomes an image in our brains.


Roller Coaster Physics:  The fun of amusement park physics is revealed in this fun and exciting session.


Magnetism:  This learning module will investigate and discuss concepts of magnetism.  Activities will be done on magnetic properties, magnets from magnetic substances and electromagnetism.


Sound Science:  Waves, vibrations, compressions and rare fractions are all part of this session discussing sound energy.


Simple Machines:  Simple machines make work easier by using mechanical advantage.  This session uses levers, pulleys and inclined planes to show how.


Space Science:  Space science shows why it is necessary to have an understanding of space before we attempt to travel in it.

Life Science Modules

Earth Science Modules

Weather Sciences:  Following this session, your class may be able to "forecast" the weather better than the 6 o'clock news.


Everyday Geology:  Properties of rocks and minerals, different types of rock and the Earth's layers will be studied in this session.


Dinosaurs:  Explore a variety of fossil replicas and animal artifacts as we help students understand how scientists learn about dinosaurs.  Discover some of the things we may never know about dinosaurs!


Earthquakes and Volcanos:  Students will be introduced to the forces of plat tectonics and its relationship to the formation of voluvanoes and the occurrence of Earthquakes.

Mathematics Modules

Probability and Chance:  Students explore probability or "chance" by observing the predictable and unpredictable outcomes associated with games of chance.
