Curriculum and Teaching Resources: STEM video sources

This is the place to start if you need resources related to school curriculum or teaching K-12 classroom subjects.

STEM topics

Sources for STEM videos

There are many sources of video material for teaching STEM topics.  Here are four examples.

Teaching Channel is a video showcase of inspiring and effective teaching practices in American schools.  The video library offers a selection to support many subject areas.  The videos support alignment with Common Core State Standards and offer supporting materials for teachers.

Here is one example from a query for STEM materials.

Khan Academy

The Khan Academy video collection covers K-12 math, science topics such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and even reaches a little bit into the humanities with playlists on finance and history. Each video is a digestible chunk, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.  You can browse these resources for a brief time, but to gain full access, you will need to set up a free account.

Here is an example from the collection "Life on Earth and in the Universe", about Firestick Farming by aboriginal Australians.

Spangler Science

Spangler Science is a YouTube Channel that is full of videos of fun science experiments using everyday objects and materials.  Use it as a lead-in for a serious discussion of scientific principles.

Here's one example.  Did you know that some (but not all) pop cans float in water? Follow this link to find out why.
