Polar Opposites

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 4
In this activity, students will create a simple model of Earth as a magnet.
• Science

Oh the Tension

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students carefully add drops of liquids to the surface of a penny to help them understand the concept of surface tension.
• Science

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will use shadows to demonstrate that Earth is moving, not the sun.
• Science

Modeling Constraints

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 2
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.
• Math

Recycling Improvements

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 2
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.
• Engineering

How Low Can You Go?

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 3
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.
• Science

How a Ball Falls

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
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.
• Technology

Fast Lane

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 2
In this activity, students will investigate how electricity and magnetism are closely related by building and testing their own electromagnets.
• Science

A Rocky Test

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 2
Students will gain an understanding of rock types and their different responses to physical and chemical weathering.
• Science

Anchor's Away!

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
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.
• Science

Biomes and Biomimicry

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 2
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.
• Science

Create a Crater

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
• Science

• IT
