42 Awesome YouTube channels for your Science Classroom

a collections of YouTube Channels perfect for the science classroom
Monica Martinez created a list of YouTube channels that are great for science teachers.  She took educator submissions and put all of the suggestions into a playlist.  What's even better is that this spreadsheet includes lists for other subjects as well, so go ahead and share this post with other teachers.  There are also edtech playlists so check those out for your technology needs.

If you have a great channel suggestions, Monica welcome suggestions and we could grow this list past 42!

Looking for Teachers for an Evolution unit pilot

I received this e-mail last week and wanted to share it with any of you who are Biology teachers. It sounds really cool and all of your expenses are paid for (including travel). If any of you go, I would love to hear about your experiences.

["Genetic Science Learning Center"]
Dear Teachers-
As you are working to close out another school year, we are looking ahead to the next! The Genetic Science Learning Center has developed an NGSS-aligned unit on Evolution for high school Biology and is seeking teachers to pilot test the unit during the 2016-2017 academic year. This exciting new six-week unit utilizes real data, science practices and cross-cutting concepts to explore the shared biochemistry of life, common ancestry, heredity, natural selection, and speciation.
Pilot Testing will involve:
  • Attending an expenses-paid training in Salt Lake City, UT July 26-29, 2016
  • Using the six week unit with 2 or more general biology classes during the 2016-2017 academic year
  • A $600 stipend upon completion of the Pilot Test
For more information and to apply visit:
Application deadline is May 15.
