At the Harbour School in Hong Kong, TED Senior Fellow Cesar Harada teaches citizen science and invention to the next generation of environmentalists. He's moved his classroom into an industrial mega-space where imaginative kids work with wood, metal, chemistry, biology, optics and, occasionally, power tools to create solutions to the threats facing the world's oceans. There, he instills a universal lesson that his own parents taught him at a young age: "You can make a mess, but you have to clean up after yourself."

It seeks an answer to the question of “What are some guiding principles of constructivist thinking that we must keep in mind when we consider our role as science teachers?.” The second part of this paper moves toward describing the nature of students’ alternative conceptions in science. It introduces implications for science educa-tion and science teacher education as well.

Learning about the role and physical attributes of mucus is important when teaching grade five students about the human respiratory system and digestive system.

A power cut happened in the house and for that kids are suffering & facing many problems. Will you help little kids to resolve this problem in this power cut activities game? If yes, you have to go to that place where a short circuit has taken place. In the first scene of power outage activities, you have to visit the farm area & try to fix all the problems with a water pump. In the second view, kids were watching a movie & power cut off so open the projector, check out the problems and try to solve it. After that, a short circuit is happened in the TV so open the television and tries to make the cable connections. At last, kids were studying in the classroom and the projector is shut down so try to fix the problem and run it as before.

Our learning journey is a work in progress, and I hope visitors view it as just that: an opportunity to reflect and grow each day. As part of our Math and Science Investigations (M.S.I) time in Kindergarten, our students explored a tower inquiry.

Frog Dissection from Punflay, is a greener alternative for teaching dissection in the classroom. This iPad app is suitable for middle-school students who are learning about organs and organ systems as part of their life science curriculum. Students can try dissecting a virtual specimen with all the trappings that come with the real procedure-minus the mess of course! Besides a virtual chloroformed specimen, the app comes with all the dissection tools and detailed instructions to complete the procedure. Once dissection is complete, the frog’s organs are exposed for further study. Vivid 3D images will help students visualize the internal organs very effectively. For enhanced learning experience, the app also has information on the different types of frogs, frogs’ life cycle, anatomical comparison of frogs with humans, an interactive quiz and detailed descriptions of the organs.
