Atomic Learning recently introduced a new project entitled “Documenting Kitchen Science” in which teachers use iMovie on the iPad to document a kitchen science experiment. This project involves creating a short documentary about a dynamic kitchen science experiment that uses milk, food coloring, and dish soap to learn about surface tension and convection.

Students use the camera on the iPad to capture video as the experiment is being conducted. After bringing the video into iMovie, they then edit the video, add audio, and add titles to the video clips. The class reviews the video to compare results and document conclusions about what they have observed and the results obtained by doing the experiment.

The tutorial movies that follow will demonstrate how to construct the Documenting Kitchen Science movie. For a complete project description, including goals, objectives, and required materials, see the Project Overview.
