Iron Science/Math Teacher, PreK-12
These webcasts show teachers competing before a live audience. It’s a parody of “Iron Chef.” The teachers have 10 minutes to create a science or math activity based on everyday items such as a plastic bag, a milk carton, or a nail. The lesson is taught to the audience. The archive of competitions goes back to 1999 and is grouped by topic such as household items, holidays, kitchen items, desk items and the recycling bin. Some of the particular items used include candles, chocolate, pumpkins, corks, Jell-o and water bottles.
