The “Ah-Hah!” Moment
ExploreLearning Gizmos are all about the “Ah-Hah!” moment, that miraculous instant when something inside your brain clicks and suddenly whatever was puzzling you now makes perfect sense.
Determining Density via Water Displacement
You may recall the story of Archimedes, who discovered the principles of water displacement and buoyancy in the bathtub. The “Ah-Hah!” moment sent Archimedes leaping from the tub to run down the street shouting “Eureka!” — which is Greek for “I found it!”
That’s the “Ah-Hah!” we’re talking about. But we’re also talking about a broad and growing course coverage, a great investment, and a powerful enhancement to the way teachers teach and students learn.
ExploreLearning currently has over 450 Gizmos with accompanying curricular materials, all with the aim of sharing the “Ah-Hah!” moment with teachers and students.
