Watch Frostbite Theater from Jefferson Lab

Yesterday, I posted a list of 7 Useful YouTube Channels for Science Students and Teachers. This morning, through a Tweet by Sandra Goodrich,  I learned of another good YouTube channel for science students. Jefferson Lab's YouTube channel includes a playlist titled Frostbite Theater. Frostbite Theater is a collection of 54 videos that offer short lessons in basic chemistry and physics. In the video below students learn about liquid nitrogen shaping pewter.

Applications for Education
If you're looking for some simple science demonstrations to add to your classroom website, Frostbite Theater might have what you need. On a related note, Sandra Goodrich's blog has some great ideas for science teachers. Check out her Marshmallow Chemistry post.
