The Competitive Kids STEM (CKSTEM) is proud to put together a comprehensive plan for preparing students for the science contests. This training is free for every student participating in the global science contest - VANDA. We will share 10-12 sessions covering in the next four months for grade 3-11 students. This training will cover all major topics in science required for elementary, middle, and high school.
Our lesson #2 will focus on the earth. If you join the VANDA Science contest, you will have access to ~20 in-depth sessions to learn all about our amazing earth. To get you started, we are sharing a few sessions with you. We hope these will motivate you to access the complete set of 300+ sessions.
Our team at CKSTEM loves music, and we also love science. Hence, we decided to share a musical introduction of the earth with you. We are 100% sure that you will not just like it, but you will end up watching it multiple times. Try it and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Click on the image below to initiate this session.
While you are still moving and shaking on our amazing earth, let's deep dive into Volcanos. Please be very careful. You will experience extreme heat, and you may turn into a liquid or maybe a gas? What do you think? It's better to be safe than sorry. Hence, put on a few protective layers before taking on the following sessions. Click on the image below to learn more about Volcanos. Remember it's very hot.
Wasn't it too hot? We need to cool it down. Maybe we can pour a lot of cold water into the volcano to cool it down. Is it a good idea to connect an ocean to a volcano to cool it down? Close your eyes and imagine an ocean supplying water to a volcano. It sounds like an excellent idea, but it could have some logistical issues. Well, you are the future of our amazing earth. I am sure you will figure it out.
In the meantime, who supplies water to earth? We sent our team all across the globe, but they couldn't figure out how water was provided to Earth. By any chance, do you know what the source of the earth's water supply is? The following lesson may help a bit. Why don't we try it?
Are you having fun?
We can't drill a hole in the earth, so how can we find the earth's radius without leaving earth? How do we find the weight of earth? We already have 7+ billion people on earth. How many more people can we fit on earth before it falls off Sun's orbit? Why do we get tsunamis?
Too many questions. Would you like to get an answer to these questions and learn a lot more?
This training is designed to help students solidify science fundamentals in a fun way. Most contests generally expect students to have a good understanding of topics beyond their school grades. You will undoubtedly find this training very helpful to prepare; however, we encourage you to review sample tests from the contests to learn yourself applying concepts to solve problems. This training is CKSTEM's initiative. It can not guarantee your success in the competitions. However, it will help you learn and understand science better. We hope you will find it helpful.
We will focus on simple machines, forces and motions next week.
