Welcome to ScienceFix.com! Your place to get your science fix! It is a resource for middle school science teachers. It has resources (created by me, Darren Fix), that teachers can use such as lessons, science links, video demonstrations and web projects/webquests. There are original resources and of course customized (teaching is all about taking other teachers creations and modifying and tailoring it to your classroom). The site is also a blog. The reason for the blog feature is to share some of the more interesting things that are going on in science that might stir some interest in your classroom or just for your own personal enjoyment. Hopefully you can get some use out of it and also have a little fun!
I have been a science teacher for 14 years. Currently I am teaching 7th and 8th grade science at Spring View Middle School, in Rocklin, Ca. I am also the lead technology teacher and I have a masters in education technology via the iMET masters program at California State University, Sacramento. I am a science and technology nerd who thoroughly enjoys teaching. I love to do demonstrations of science concepts and I also try to incorporate the latest discoveries in science into the classroom. I also integrate computer applications into the science curriculum to further enhance the learning experience. I have presented at education conferences such as the state CUE (Computer Using Educators) Conference as well as the CLHS/CLMS (California League of High Schools/ Middle Schools) Technology Conference.
