CO2 Experiment

Experiment showing the absorption of infrared radiation by carbon dioxide. From the BBC 2 program “Earth: The Climate Wars”

Moving Atoms for the World’s Smallest Movie

How did IBM researchers move all those atoms to make the world’s smallest movie? This short behind-the-scenes documentary takes you inside the lab. Meet the scientists, see how they made a movie with atoms, and find out more about their research in the field of atomic memory and data storage.

History of the Atomic Theory

When did the Theory that Atoms are the smallest pieces of matter begin? Who started it? What were the experiments Scientists conducted? What lead them to their present understanding that all atoms contain the three subatomic particles; protons, electrons, and neutrons?


In 2012, Ed Friedman and his wife traveled to Geneva Switzerland. On their tour they stopped off at CERN. This slideshow was put together for the LMS Science club where Ed gave this revealing presentation.

Optical Illusions

This Slideshow on Optical Illusions was something Mark Baker, an LMS math teacher shared with the staff in the early 2000s.

Group Selection Study

Using Cognitive Styles and Intelligence Preferences in Group Selection 2006. Based on a book study on “How to differentiate instruction in mixed-ability classrooms, by Carol Ann Tomlinson, 2001”

Making Molecules

How do molecules get made from atoms? Why do some atoms join with certain atoms, but not others? How does it work energetically? How can we predict with certainty which atoms will connect, and which will remain apart?

Physical Properties of Matter

Matter can appear in 3-5 states depending on your method for categorizing. Gas, Liquid, Solid. Why does this happen energetically? How can we analyze these differences?

Wringing out Water on the ISS

CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed a simple science experiment designed by grade 10 Lockview High School students Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner. The students from Fall River, Nova Scotia won a national science contest held by the Canadian Space Agency with their experiment on surface tension in space using a wet washcloth.

World’s Smallest Video “A Boy and his Atom”

This movie holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World’s Smallest Stop-Motion Film. The ability to move single atoms — the smallest particles of any element in the universe — is crucial to IBM’s research in the field of atomic memory. But even nanophysicists need to have a little fun. In that spirit, IBM researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules (two atoms stacked on top of each other), all in pursuit of making a movie so small it can be seen only when you magnify it 100 million times. A movie made with atoms.

What’s in a Candle Flame?

How can we prove with a simple experiment that a flame is the fourth state of matter – Plasma?

A Crash Course in Particle Physics

Professor Brian Cox of the University of Manchester presents an educational walk, through the fundamentals of Particle Physics.

How Hot Can it Get?

TEMPERATURES! by Vsauce. Watch out! This guy talks really fast! But, his questions and use of science that overlaps, to paint a deep picture on topics that many of us don’t think to ask, are very enlightening!

History of the Atomic Theory

How and When did the Atomic Theory first begin? What was the first proof we had that Atoms existed? How can we tell that Atoms are even there? What were those first discoveries about the nucleus; electrons, protons, and neutrons? How do we weigh Atoms?

This little video explains how Matter is waves, and is therefore music. It begins with the Law of Octaves/Law of Periodicity and how elements ascend in complexity in a harmonic series – the same thing occurs in music. Then a correlation with fundamental harmonics and music being divisible by either 2 or 3. And finally how the Heisenberg Schrodinger model of electron orbitals displays the wave quality of atoms, proving that atomic energy levels actually exist in wave-form.
