Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest minds the world has ever seen. He revolutionized the sciences of physics and mathematics. He also was an alchemist and became the Master of the Royal Mint. He wrote extensively on many topics in history and religion.
The Diet Coke and Mentos Eruption is probably the most well-known and popular experiments of modern times. It is a highly entertaining, easy experiment that can be performed by all, young and old. Kids and big kids at heart will enjoy the intense geyser caused by only two ingredients. Note, if you are planning on doing this experiment yourself to see it, make sure you do it outside, as it is guaranteed to make a mess.
An evaluation of the results and conclusions from Zimbardo's prison experiment. It looks at factors which may have affected the results of the experiment. The impact of the roleplaying element of the participants and the situational discrepancies between a real and simulated prison, are included for discussion. The validity of the Stanford prison experiment conclusions (despite the possible interference from unavoidable factors arising from the nature of the experiment) seem likely to be pretty accurate. Ethical concerns are, however, highlighted.
The Philadelphia Experiment allegedly occured in 1943, during the height of World War II. During this period the Americans had not yet landed in Normandy and were viciously fighting Germany U-Boats in the Atlantia. This was the height of the Battle of the Atlantic. ...
What if we can effect things around us other than people with our intentions? The possibility would shake our general current scientific theories to their core. Here is a slightly different replication of Dr. Emoto's famous rice experiment along with details of how I did it so others can too. The results of this experiment warrant further investigation.
Science, from latin " scientia" (knowledge) and "scire" (to know) is a broad term used to describe "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment." [New Oxford Dictionary of English]
Science therefore is...
The reality of telepathic hypnosis was proved in the 1920s by Professor Leonid L. Vasiliev, the Director of the Department of Physiology at the University of Leningrad. Like the quantum physics experiments that would follow later in the century, the experiments also demonstrated the subconscious mind's transcendence over physical space, as hypnotists were able to influence subjects just as effectively separated by a distance of over 1,000 miles.
We all know that our behavior is a consequence of the sum of our experiences. We become who were are because of what we have learned and where we have been. In studying this ideology, Dr. Philip Zimbardo, a Psych Professor at Stanford University, wanted to study the...
There are many animal activist groups as well as scientist that believe that animals should not be used for scientific research. However, there are major reasons why they should. They are simpler models, the environment and research can be controlled easier, ethically its more feasible to experiment on animal than humans, they are readily available at minimal costs, and the studies performed provide us with faster research into disease and psychological disorders that would not otherwise be discovered.
Many people know who Benjamin Franklin is, but he accomplished much more in his life than most people have probably read about. Ben Franklin led a storied life as a founding father of the United States of America, but he didn't play just one role as an American hero. Franklin was a civic activist, revolutionary, philosopher, printer, and maybe most importantly of all, he was an inventor.
It is not secret about the millions of people that died in World War II, whether it be soldiers on the battlefield, civilians in the towns, or Jews in the concentration camps. However, for thousands of unlucky people, they weren't mercifully killed quickly with a bullet, they had a fate much worse-test subjects. While chemical and biological weapons had been used previously in wars, there was not a lot of understanding of how they effected the human body. A few curious Japanese soldier wanted to solve that mystery, in the worst way. From this curiosity sprang the cruel experiments of Unit 731.
Visitors to the Tucson, Arizona area should consider taking a fascinating side trip to see Biosphere 2, a vast ecosystem that was built to see if we could create an environment that would support life on another planet. Today, experiments are still conducted inside Biosphere 2, and the public can tour it daily.
If your 4th grade child is unsure of what project to choose for the science fair this year, try one of these ideas for a thoughtful, simple and thorough science project suitable for fourth grade students. Third and fifth grade students may also be able to use these project ideas.
(CLICK FOR PART 1) A naturalistic form seems to be in line (depending on one’s interpretation) with Aristotle’s prime mover, as described in his book “Metaphysics.” On page 341 Aristotle states, “Now we must observe that neither the matter nor the form comes to be...
