Spongein is a streaming service that offers a wide variety of education based shows. These include lessons like to Mathematics, Physics, Life Science, Zulu, English, IT and lots more subjects, as well as masterclasses delivered by various industry experts.
Natural Science takes you through the study of life through scientific investigations, formulating hypotheses and carrying out experiments. The frontiers of the unknown such as why climate change is occurring, are explored. An understanding of natural phenomena and the history of science are also established. Natural Science combines Physical Science and Life Science through topics such as photosynthesis, ecosystems, energy flow, adaptations of animals to different environments, atoms, the particle of matter and chemical reactions. Students learn to interpret information that is unfamiliar and to apply this knowledge to explain patterns, phenomena and relationships in order to solve problems.
Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of materials. Have you ever felt a tiny shock when you touch a door knob? That shock is caused by static electricity. By the end of this lesson you will know how this build-up of charge occurs and its impact.
Current electricity and components of electric circuits
Current electricity is what charges your devices and lets you watch tv. This lesson will teach you about what current electricity is and the different components that are used in electric circuits and the function of each of the different types of components in the circuit.
We learnt about components in circuits and we learnt that resistors can be useful in our everyday lives. We now look at three effects that electrical current has such as the heating effect, the magnetic effect and the chemical effects.
In a circuit, we can set up the components in such a way that the current only has one pathway to follow or multiple pathways. In this lesson we are going to look at the different setups and investigate the benefits of having one pathway.
Now that we have looked at the reflection of light where the light changes direction and is “bounced” off the surface of an object we need to look at what happens when light moves through transparent objects.
