You may be surprised at all that you’ll find on KnowItAll.org!
There’s so much to explore, we want to help you to get right to it - but first…
There are three items we’d like to share with you – this month on KnowItAll.org!
For your convenience, this information has been published as four separate blogs.
Please find them at the links below:
I. What’s at the Top – Our top 20 sites on KnowItAll.org
II. What’s Needed – Science and Math content
III. What’s New on KnowItAll: A Recap of Content Added to KnowItAll.org in the Past Year
And now, to the Math Resources...
Summer is a great time for students to explore and engage with content that is new to them! This month, we are featuring our Science and Math content, in two separate blogs. We hope that students of all ages will enjoy exploring these resources throughout the summer months!
Produced by South Carolina ETV in partnership with SC Department of Education to enhance the At-Home Learning schedule.
Bear and Bull talk about creating a budget and how to save money.
Creating a Career with the Arts in Mind
The first series features a Panel Discussion with the artists, and the second series consists of bios of each artist. Both series reveal numerous details about these careers in the arts, as well as the educational requirements, and the technology and soft skills utilized in each field.
The series explores science and integrates technology, while focusing on various careers. The videos are less than 10 minutes and are filmed through the eyes of the cameraman, D.V.

Find award-winning science, math and technology videos and interactives for grades K-12 produced by NASA and provided for distribution to South Carolina ETV's Knowitall.
Programs in the series establish a connection between the mathematics, science, and technology concepts taught in the classroom to those used every day by NASA researchers. The lesson guide, containing a hands-on activity and the web-based application reinforce and extend the objectives presented in the program.

A race around the world . . . in a boat 40 to 60 feet in length . . . ALONE. This event, which began in 1982, occurs every four years and starts in Charleston, South Carolina. The course consists of four legs -- three land stops in South Africa, New Zealand, and Uruguay, and finally back to Charleston. The winner of the 27,000-mile race is determined by the total amount of time it takes for skippers to complete each of the four legs.
The skippers each have a support crew on land that travels around the world to meet them at each of the land stops. The crew repairs the broken parts of the boat when it comes into port. It takes four years to prepare the boat for the race, during which time preparations to the equipment are made and company sponsorships are obtained.
Neal Peterson invites viewers aboard his boat, No Barriers. Neal explains that math and physics are very important in sailing and navigating the boat. He also explains the parts of the boat that are integral to sailing. The shroud bends the mast backwards through the block-and-tackle system. A spinnaker is a large colorful sail that is used to move the boat in downwind conditions. Navigation helps the skipper locate by latitude and longitude, using a chart and a compass as well as GPS. Neal also shows students how to cook, generate power, and live on the boat while it is moving.
