Do Fish Pee?

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Freshwater fish pee almost constantly, while saltwater fish pee very little. Scholars investigate the concept of homeostasis with a video lesson comparing fresh and saltwater fish. An episode describes how some fish absorb water, while...

Should You Drink Sports Drinks? When? Why?

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
New research proves even rinsing your mouth with carbohydrates without swallowing improves performance of the central nervous system. While some think sports drinks are amazing, others say they are a waste of money. Scholars learn about...

Plasma Membrane – Gateway to the Cell

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Just as skin covers your body limiting what can go in and out, plasma membranes cover cells to do the same. Scholars begin with a presentation that gives overview of the structure and function of plasma membranes. Then, they learn how...

Introduction to Osmosis

For Teachers 6th - 12th Standards
A chicken egg is a very large cell—perfect for investigating osmosis! Scholars conduct an experiment with vinegar and eggs that helps them understand the process of osmosis. They follow the activity with an in-depth look at osmosis in...

Investigating the Effect of Concentration of Blackcurrant Squash on Osmosis in Chipped Potatoes

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Model and explore osmosis using squash and potatoes. Young scientists expose chunks of potatoes to different concentrations of a squash solution. They compare the weights of the chunks before and after exposure to the solution and use...

Observing Osmosis, Plasmolysis, and Turgor in Plant Cells

For Teachers 9th - Higher Ed Standards
Create the perfect conditions for osmosis. Young scholars use a microscope to observe plant cells exposed to distilled water or sodium chloride. They observe how osmosis creates turgid or plasmolyzed cells.

Investigating Osmosis in Chickens' Eggs

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
You might not be able to learn through osmosis, but you sure can observe it! Scholars observe and measure osmosis using chicken eggs. They control for multiple variables to determine which variables have an impact and how the impact...

Osmotic Pressure: Spontaneous Balloon Popping

For Students 9th - Higher Ed
Visualize osmosis using an interactive activity. As learners monitor a simulation, they witness the particle movement through the membrane. A balloon represents the cellular membrane and 'pops' as osmosis creates an imbalance of particles.

Transport in Cells: Diffusion and Osmosis

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Do cells breathe? An installment in the Fuse School series of videos describes how cells take in the nutrients they need and release the waste they don't need. It highlights the process of diffusion and osmosis.
