Saturday, October 5, 2013, 9am – 3pm
Mission College, Santa Clara, CA (Science Building)
 
Join the American Chemical Society (ACS) to celebrate National Chemistry Week 2013 on the theme: “Energy – Now and Forever!” Learn about some of the ways in which energy is made and what scientists and engineers are doing to supply the world’s energy. This hands-on workshop will take place at Mission College in Santa Clara, CA in conjunction with the 44th Western Regional ACS Meeting. Breakfast, lunch, standards-based curriculum materials, and supplies to replicate the activities in your classroom will be provided.
 
TARGET AUDIENCE: 3rd through 6th grade teachers; all educators welcome.
COST: There is no cost to attend, but enrollment is limited. Registrations must be received by September 28 to secure a space. Register at: www.raftbayarea.org/workshops.

Common Core Standards for Science have not been finalized. These are the current California Science Content Standards that will be addressed through hands-on activities during the workshop:
Third Grade
01. Energy and matter have multiple forms and can be changed from one form to another.
04. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
Fourth Grade
01. Electricity and magnetism are related effects that have many useful applications in everyday life.
02. All organisms need energy and matter to live and grow.
04. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
Fifth Grade
03. Energy from the sun heats the earth unevenly, causing air movements resulting in changing weather patterns.
04. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
Sixth Grade
04. Many phenomena on Earth’s surface are affected by the transfer of energy through radiation and convection currents.
05. Organisms in ecosystems exchange energy and nutrients among themselves and with the environment.
06. Sources of energy and materials differ in amounts, distribution, usefulness, and the time required for their formation.
07. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
