Video for Metabolism/Energy: Hummingbirds

You can use a number of videos for Biology topic on Metabolism…..

A number of videos of Hummingbirds (taken on vacation in Arizona) are available at

You can easily EMBED these videos in your presentations.

Some key facts about Hummingbirds:

Hummingbirds feed on the nectar of plants and are important pollinators, especially of deep-throated, tubular flowers. Like bees, they are able to assess the amount of sugar in the nectar they eat; they reject flower types that produce nectar which is less than 12% sugar and prefer those whose sugar content is around 25%. Nectar is a poor source of nutrients, so hummingbirds meet their needs for protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, etc. by preying on insects and spiders, especially when feeding young.

Our Interactive Science Activities

Hot Potatoes is a powerful resource for producing a range of interactive activities.

All you need to do is enter the data for your exercises (questions, answers, responses etc.), and press a button. The program will create the Web pages for you, if needed. They can then be uploaded them to one of our websites.

Alternatively, you can PRINT paper versions of your exercises. The choice is yours.

You can include your own images, or images from our Image Galleriers, such as www.webucate.org . This will eliminate any problems with copyright issues.

Hot Potatoes is free for use by state educational institutions which are non-profit making, on the condition that the material produced using the program is freely available to anyone via the WWW.

Download the software from http://hotpot.uvic.ca/

The tutorials are provided in the software. OR You can access the online tutorials at http://hotpot.uvic.ca/wintutor6/tutorial.htm

Generating Electricity using Wind Power

Students in Year 10 focus o­n a real environmental and energy issue.

Using a model turbine, they measure the output voltage as a function of distance (related to wind speed) from the wind source. The wind source is provided by a hair dryer…
