Welcome, students! My name is Melissa Buchanan, but kids often call me Ms. Bee. I love science, but it was the arts that helped me to develop that love. For instance, I learned to really see and appreciate nature through photography, mixed media arts and drawing classes, and was amazed at the chemistry of glazes in ceramics. Naturally inquisitive, I decided to take more science classes and eventually was hired in the fisheries and aquatic ecology labs at Eastern Washington University. This lead to a continuation of graduate level work in biology to enhance my understanding of the natural world.
I hope to share my enthusiasm and it would be my honor to help you find love for science and appreciation for its everyday connections.
Physics through concept mapping. This website shows through concept mapping how physics is connected to all sciences. It helps to add "AHA!" moments and enrich our understanding of how the world works. The index to the right of the page is a list of possible terms of interest. When you click on one, other related concepts are included. The bubbles are links, so click away!
