Product Description:
#8439 Scientific Methods & Equipment - Science Lab Safety (Run time 19 min.) DVD $79.95

Many students do not realize how hazardous the lab can be. Safety awareness in the laboratory is essential. This engaging and entertaining program teaches students how to recognize hazards, prevent accidents, and cope with emergencies. The proper way to extinguish a fire is demonstrated, along with first aid for acid burns and electric shock. Correlates to the National Science Education Standards developed by the National Academies of Science and Project 2061 Benchmarks for Science Literacy from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. A Cambridge Educational Production. (19 minutes)


#4990 General Science - Science and Gender: Evelyn Fox Keller (Run time 30 min.) DVD $89.95

When in the 1950s Evelyn Fox Keller ventured forth to become a scientist, she discovered it was a man's world. Training as a theoretical physicist and working in both mathematical biology and the history of science, she wondered why most scientists were men and why the language of science reflected masculine metaphors and values. Keller has grappled with the meaning and consequences of these stereotypes ever since. In this program with Bill Moyers, Keller discusses how gender plays a significant role in the language that scientists use to describe their work. (30 minutes)


#5226 General Science - Linus Pauling: A Portrait in the First Person (Run time 24 min.) DVD $89.95

Winner of a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in the theory of valency; major contributor to the study of the structure of crystals and molecules and molecule abnormality in relation to disease; winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to stop nuclear testing in the air and the resultant release of Carbon-14 into the atmosphere; foremost and most eminent advocate of using vitamin supplements, particularly vitamin C, in far greater doses than those recommended by the government: Linus Pauling reveals himself here as a man of wide-ranging interests and intelligence, who has used his scientific eminence to champion non-science causes. He also talks about some of his scientific insights and inspirations, which he ascribes to his knowledge of math, physics, mineralogy, biology, and immunology, as well as chemistry. (24 minutes)


#5517 General Science - New Materials (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

Since the Stone and Bronze Ages, the materials used to make our clothes, our homes, and our means of transportation have undergone remarkable changes. Thanks to modern design and manufacturing techniques, they are changing faster than ever. This program presents three of the most promising "new materials": superconductors; plastics, for which new uses are being constantly found; and textiles, a field where technology is creating new fabrics with astounding properties. (23 minutes)


#5537 General Science - Bionics (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

Modern medicine is increasingly turning to transplants and artificial organs to replace diseased organs. This program introduces several spectacular innovations in this scientific field of bionics. We learn how an artificial hand is designed so that it moves with almost as much dexterity as the human hand; the cochlear implant, an artificial ear capable of reproducing extremely subtle sounds, represents a revolutionary new means of treating deafness; and temporary artificial hearts are being successfully implanted in patients waiting to receive a new heart. (23 minutes)


#5550 General Science - Drugs and Poisons (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

The negative effects of the nonmedical use of drugs and alcohol are compounded by the fact that drug abuse is so widespread. Why are these chemical substances so attractive for those who use them? How do they work? What causes drug dependency in the first place? Modern science now has answers to most of these questions. For example, we now know that we have to look to the very core of the brain and into the structure of the gene for answers. By analogy, our planet can also be said to be in the grips of a chemical overdose as a result of humankind's output of toxic substances. The program also outlines current knowledge on how pollution works, and on possible long-term consequences on the biosphere. (23 minutes)


#5614 General Science - Textiles (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

This program shows us the secrets in the making of the most precious of all natural fibers: silk. A leap across time takes us to the discovery of microfibers, derived from petroleum and plastic and used to create synthetic fabrics. Finally, we see one of the most recent techniques: the grafting of natural and synthetic fibers to create fabrics that are sterile, non-rotting, fireproof, and antifungal. (23 minutes)


#5625 General Science - Science and Ethics (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

Ethical problems have been crowding in on scientists since the atomic bomb. Should scientists be responsible for what they develop? Is there a limit to where science should tread? How can privacy be maintained in the face of computers that increasingly invade our lives? These and other questions are raised in this program, including the very delicate questions raised by the new field of biotechnology. (23 minutes)


#8072 General Science - Science Fair Projects: The Ultimate Guide (Run time 33 min.) DVD $89.95

This video provides a step-by-step guide to science projects. Interviews with participants at science fairs and footage of their projects provide most of the information. Participants describe where they got their ideas, how they conducted their experiments, what problems they encountered, and what they discovered in the process. Viewers learn what the scientific method is, why it is used in projects, and how it encourages "hands-on science." Interviews with science fair judges and organizers provide insights into the judging process. Terms such as hyptothesis, control, and variable are defined. Helpful tips on recording and organizing data, safety, writing a report, constructing a display, and preparing an oral presentation round out the information. Correlates to the National Science Education Standards developed by the National Academies of Science and Project 2061 Benchmarks for Science Literacy from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. A Cambridge Educational Production. (35 minutes)
