Dark Matter Day 2022 (31st October)
October 31st marks not only Halloween, but also Dark Matter Day. This ‘mysterious’ topic is a great one to cover in class at this time of year, especially as a way to work on students’ debate skills when it comes to the different theories surrounding dark matter. We loved these resources and fun infographic from interactions.org to help you get started!
Using Zombies to Teach Science?
As a bonus, we loved this Lab Out Loud podcast episode in which Dr. Steven Schlozman delves into how to use zombies to teach science in the classroom.
Pssst.. did you know there is a unit in Kognity’s platform for High School Science that covers dark matter? Sign up here to create a free account to get access!
