Over the years, San Francisco's Exploratorium has created a number of fabulous science teaching resources. The Iron Science Teacher is a friendly competition modeled after the TV show Iron Chef. In each 30-60 minute video, four science educators appear before a live audience of young scientists at the Exploratorium and are presented with the same "ingredients." Each educator then uses these ingredients to create an interactive classroom activity. For example, in the episode, "Secret Ingredient: Breakfast Foods," teachers demonstrate science concepts and a potential lab activity using Cheerios, eggs, and milk. This video series offers a number of innovative ideas for activities to implement in science classrooms and after-school programs.
