## 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

## Light the Bulb

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 4
In this investigation, students will design three different circuit arrangements with a switch capable of lighting a small light bulb. They will use the results of this investigation to determine the best configuration for wiring holiday lights.
• Science

## 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

## 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

## Ice Cores

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will evaluate water ice balloons to reconstruct recent climate history by sorting different layers of evidence.
• Science

## Coin Batteries

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will construct a coin battery and measure its voltage output. They will compare their battery’s voltage to that of traditional AA/AAA batteries and consider modifications to their battery so it produces enough power to light up an LED bulb.
• Science

## Leaves are the Place to Be

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will explore the structures within a leaf where the process of photosynthesis occurs.
• Science

## Mapping It Out

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will use a topographic map of their school grounds to identify geologic features using a printed map.
• Science

## Market Research and Design

• IT
• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 3
In this lesson, students will work in teams to design a pair of headphones specifically for children under three.
• Engineering

## Move It

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will investigate different ways to move a ball.
• Science

## Game Set Match

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 3
In this activity, students will investigate how robots work including robotic parts and explain how energy is transferred to make different parts move.
• Science

## Going with the Flow

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the value of using a scale model and the effect of water speed on erosion rate and stream formation.
• Science
