Science Friday - Audio Science Lessons

Science Friday is a weekly podcast (hosted on Sound Cloud) that features science stories spanning a wide array of topics, but most topics that are related to current news stories. As the name implies, new episodes appear on Fridays. You can listen to each episode in its entirety or you can choose to listen to the individual segments as featured on the Science Friday homepage. Here's a segment from last Friday's show.


Applications for Education
Science Friday has an education section that offers many free lesson plans. The lesson plans are generally connected to one of the Science Friday segments. You can search for lesson plans in the Science Friday education pages according to grade, topic, and the length of activity that you would like to do.

Science Friday - Science Lesson Plans and Interesting Science Videos

Science Friday is a must-bookmark for teachers and students of science. On Science Friday you will find interesting videos and articles about a wide array of topics in chemistry, biology, physics, space science, and much more. As the name implies, new videos appear on Fridays. One of the videos from earlier this month that I like is about crystal formation in chocolate.


Each video is accompanied by a set of links for further reading on the topic. One of the links accompanying the video above takes you to this 33 page PDF about the science of candy.

Applications for Education
Science Friday offers lesson plans, many of them hands-on, that you can find in the education section of the site. To find a lesson plan just click a word in the word cloud on the education page. Each lesson plan includes a suggested grade level and links to the national science standards addressed in the lesson. Lighting Up Celery Stalks is one of the featured biology lesson plans that I think students will enjoy.
