“Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb” and Educational Standards
“Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb” is an educational science kit designed and manufactured by Harris Educational for use in schools, home schools, science fairs, and by hobbyists. The kit includes a 28 page instruction manual that details multiple engaging science experiments that can be safely performed using the kit. The experiments are designed with best practices in mind and are meant to be open ended and inquiry based. Student experimenters are encouraged to ask questions, find answers, and test hypothesis that help illustrate science and technology principles. The instructions were designed with two sets of educational standards in mind: The National Science Educational Standards as published by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC) and endorsed by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). http://www.nsta.org/publications/nses.aspx and The Standards for Technological Literacy as published by the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) http://www.iteaconnect.org/TAA/Publications/TAA_Publications.html It is our hope that by focusing on standards this science kit will more easily fit into a school's science curriculum, conform to the goals of that curriculum, and provide a familiar and easy to teach set of subject matter for educators. It is also our goal that by focusing on standards this kit will be more valuable to home schooling parents and to science hobbyists and science fair participants. This document will list the experiments included in the instruction guide for this science kit and will cite the specific science and technology standards addressed by this science kit. List of Experiments Included in the Experiment Guide: Your First Working Light Bulb Experimenting with the Vacuum Experimenting with Different Filaments Quantitative Experiments (Data Tables) History of the Light Bulb
