VIDEO: What is Matter?
The chair you’re sitting in, the orange juice you may have had for breakfast, and you—all these things have something in common: they’re all examples of matter. Most of the matter you see every day comes in one of three forms: solid (like grains of sand), liquid (like water), or gas (like the air that helps a kite stay aloft). Watch more!
The complexity of atoms is made super simple in this unit, which traces them from their smallest components, through how they become elements. Atoms, Kids Discover, Reading Levels, Super Simple, The Wonders, Elementary Schools

Sea turtles and salmon swim hundreds of miles to go home to breed. These animals have cells containing small levels of magnetite, meaning they’re sensitive to Earth’s magnetic field. They use this sensitivity like a built-in GPS. Read more here! Adobe, Earth’s Atmosphere, Green Sea Turtle, Pacific Ocean, Marine Life, Endangered, High Quality Art Prints

Lasers and Other High-Tech Uses of Light
Turn on a laser, and a tiny, powerful beam shoots out in a straight line. In addition to medical procedures such as eye surgery, lasers can show how straight a tunnel is, measure how far the ground moves in an earthquake, and much more. Watch now!
NEW VIDEO: Move It!
A force is a push or a pull. If a force is strong enough, it can cause an object to move. We use and react to forces all the time. Learn more in our latest video!

Marie Curie was born On This Day in 1867 in Warsaw, Poland. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, alongside her husband, for her study of spontaneous radiation in 1903. Less than a decade later, she also became the first person to win a second Nobel Prize for her work in radioactivity in 1911.
