Lingo Likes: Slow Motion Science Projects


Click to see more sites Lingo likes!

Kids love to learn about science through action. When kids see a mentos drop into a bottle of cola, or watch a hydrogen balloon explode there’s just something about science experiments that puts them in awe.  What’s even better is when they can see the launches, explosions and other experiments in  s l o w  m o t i o n!

Lingo flies all over the internet to find the best websites for kids, parents and educators to help children dive deep into their creativity while learning.  That’s why the site Lingo likes this week is SamHankin. Here’s more about Sam from his website

“I spent most of one of my days during half term creating slow motion science videos with the help from my Physics science teacher. We borrowed two very expensive high speed cameras and recorded a number of experiments in slow motion, which range from 400fps to 3000fps. Originally recorded in high resolution with a total of 30GB worth of footage, I have now compressed them to be ready for the web…

In the end, the videos were used to create an interactive slow motion science application for use on interactive whiteboards in schools. The program can be launched from any windows machine. (comes in .exe format). And the program includes ‘cheesy music’ – something all students love!”

After finishing your science projects, watch your children learn to read through an immersive online reading program at Reading Kingdom’s magical land of literacy.  Our award-winning learning software is the only reading platform that teaches children to read using the patented “Integrated Six Skill Method” needed for literacy success. Read testimonials from hundreds of parents and teachers, then click here to sign up for a free 30 day trial.  Lingo and company hope to see you soon!

“My daughter enjoys working on Reading Kingdom each day — and does so without a fuss… I am seeing results as her reading skills come into “season.” Best of all, SHE is seeing results and that makes all the difference in the world.” — Lynn McInnis
