Distance Learning Coordinator
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.
Sessions are $130 each for grades K-2
Sessions are $180 each for grades 3-12
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.
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.
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.
Life Science Modules
The Organ Systems of the Body: This session describes how the basic units of our bodies work together to form the internal working systems of the body.
Earth Science Modules
Weather Sciences: Following this session, your class may be able to "forecast" the weather better than the 6 o'clock news.
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.
Probability and Chance: Students explore probability or "chance" by observing the predictable and unpredictable outcomes associated with games of chance.
