- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will create a simple model of Earth as a magnet.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will use shadows to demonstrate that Earth is moving, not the sun.
- K–5

Grades:

Grades:

In this activity, blindfolded students will use their sense of touch to organize materials according to texture.
- K–5

Grades:

Students will work in small groups to investigate constraints of starting a business. Each group will be assigned a specific constraint. Small groups will then write a linear inequality and graph the inequality on a group capture sheet.
- 9–12

Grades:

After learning about the amount of paper that the United States uses every year, students will observe how homemade recycled paper is made. Upon examining the result, students will be challenged to refine this process in order to produce a paper product.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students work in teams to develop a method for creating a mathematical model of the path of a ball. The teams measure the height from which a ball is thrown, and the time taken for the ball to reach the ground.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate factors that influence the temperature of an isolated system and relate this to average kinetic energy and thermodynamic properties.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate how electricity and magnetism are closely related by building and testing their own electromagnets.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will examine two different techniques for mapping different aspects of the ocean, and will model those techniques on a small scale in the classroom.
- K–5

Grades:

Students will gain an understanding of rock types and their different responses to physical and chemical weathering.
- 6–8

Grades:

In this activity, students will learn about the upcoming planned missions to Mars from various space companies. They will then design a product that could be used to help astronauts as their bodies face the rigors of space on the long journey to Mars.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the benefits and limitations of the structure of the human ear.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will work in teams and use the approach of biomimicry to build an Adaptation Station that will enhance life for humans living in a specific environment.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
- K–5

Grades:

Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will use geometric shapes to design a unique three-dimensional object that has an everyday use.
