Science Glossary

A glossary of scientific terms and short biographies that support our science education. All definitions link to related terms and to free, detailed science learning modules. Though geared for high school and undergraduate student's using our website, the glossary and modules are appropriate for anyone generally interested in science.

Newton's Cradle

Newton's Cradles demonstrate the conservation of momentum and energy.  Touching a ball connects an elastic band between your finger and the ball enabling you to throw, fling, or swing the ball around.
Science Friday

Each week, we focus on science topics that are in the news and try to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand.

These videos are 2 to 3 minutes in length and demonstrate the steps of simple science experiments. The experiments are designed to inspire and excite kids of all ages, with very little set-up time and using only low cost materials.
3D Cell Stimulation and Stain Tool

Enjoy the ability to rotate the cell 360 degrees and zoom in on any cell structure. Choose from our list of cell structures to learn more about how each structure functions and relates to the other components of the cell.  There are over 250 image combinations to explore!
Great Migrations HD by National Geographic

Think you can successfully guide wave after wave of migrating animals through dense forests, raging rivers, desolate plains and untamed jungles while dealing with failing health, unpredictable environments, and sheer exhaustion? Use your wits and skill to keep your animals from being attacked by hungry predators and on the path toward safety! The fate of millions is in your hands!
Newtonian Stimulator

Newtonian Gravity Simulator is a simple gravitational force simulator. Try to get virtual objects in orbit around a virtual planet. Or, set up your own virtual objects with custom masses and starting velocities, and watch the objects interact under the simulated gravitational forces. Potentially set up stable orbits, or maybe even a binary orbit. Based on the concept of the Newtonian equation for gravitational force, k*m1*m2/r^2. Good for conceptual educational use.
Chemical Reaction

Chemical Reaction  is a fast paced challenge, where you race against the clock to save a scientist's lab from destruction by stabilizing strange chemicals. As you progress through each exciting level, you will be met with new types of chemicals, posing new challenges. Can you save the lab form destruction?
Google Earth

Hold the world in the palm of your hand. With Google Earth you can fly to far corners of the planet with just the swipe of a finger. Explore the same global satellite and aerial imagery available in the desktop version of Google Earth, including high-resolution imagery for over half of the world's population and a third of the world's land mass.


The NASA App collects, customizes and delivers an extensive selection of dynamically updated information, images and videos from various online NASA sources in a convenient mobile package. Come explore with us.
Periodic Table of the Elements

This is a standard periodic table of the elements - a necessity for anyone interested in or even exposed chemistry. However, the version differs in that instead of cramming all the information for an element into one little square, you can select a chemical attribute and have the entire chart color coded to plainly show how the different elements vary with regard to the selected trait.

 Go Sky Watch Planetarium

GoSkyWatch Planetarium now for the iPad. Easily and quickly identify and locate stars, planets, constellations and more with a touch or by simply pointing to the sky. Have fun with family and friends discovering the images in the night sky. Go outside and explore the night sky.
3D Brain

Use your touch screen to rotate and zoom around 29 interactive structures. Discover how each brain region functions, what happens when it is injured, and how it is involved in mental illness. Each detailed structure comes with information on functions, disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research

GPS based, real-time access to USDA-NRCS soil survey data. This application retrieves graphical summaries of soil types associated with current geographic location, based on a user defined horizontal precision. Sketches of soil profiles are linked to their official soil series description (OSD) page. Soil series names are linked to their associated page within the CA Soil Resource Lab's online soil survey, SoilWeb

SPARKvue is designed for scientific inquiry in biology, chemistry, earth science, environmental science, physics, and physical science. SPARKvue can record data from internal accelerometer, with no additional hardware needed.
3D Sun

"3D Sun" lets you carry a virtual window onto today's sun, right in your pocket. Open this app anytime to see what's happening today on the sun's ever-changing surface. See when major solar flares erupt on the sun's surface. Track sunspots that reveal the churning activity inside the sun's fiery inferno.
Brain Tutor

Brain Tutor 3D uses rendered head and brain models that were created from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. This allows to look "inside" the head using real-time slicing. For students, medical professional and everyone interested in the brain, the program contains information about major parcellation schemes of the cerebral cortex, including lobes, gyri, sulci and Brodmann areas.
