I wanted to thank E&H college for the opportunity to participate in this science grant. I have enjoyed this past week. It felt like a mini vacation! Mr. Warden is a wonderful and delightful instructor. I can't wait to see the videos that will be posted and I am a little nervous about making my own, and I am looking forward to next summer to see what Earth science has to offer as well. Thanks again! :)

I've used the slinky before to teach sound concepts, but what we did today was a little more involved than what I've done. However, one thing I do is to add a string anchored in the bottom of a dixie cup to the slinky before it is manipulated. This illustrates that vibration makes sound. When the kids put it to their ear, keeping the string taut, they hear what sounds like the old asteroids game. Also, the kids can experiment with how the sound changes (pitch) by increasing the number of vibrations or shortening or elongating the length the slinky is stretched out.

Light and Shadows


Recognize your shadow moves, shrinks, and grows because the Sun’s light comes from different directions through the day.

Recognize the sun is a source of light that hits certain objects and causes shadows.

Make Your Own Greenhouse

PURPOSE:  Recreate the greenhouse effect and measure its effect on temperature.


  • Two identical empty plastic bottles (one with cap)
  • Two identical alcohol thermometers
  • Tape


  1. Make a h*** near the top of the first  plastic bottle and insert one thermometer.
  2. Use a tape to hold the thermometer in place and prevent any air from escaping…
