## AI

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will investigate and categorize types of artificial intelligence to determine a protocol for the Turing Test.
• Engineering
• Technology

## 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

## Design All Around Us

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will “mash up” an assigned product with one design influence from nature and present the product design to their peers using a free CAD software (such as Google Sketch).
• Engineering

## 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

## Floating on Air

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will investigate the relationship between friction and motion by building a simple hovercraft.
• Science

## Hurricane Force

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 2
In this lesson, students will work in teams to create a structure that will withstand simulated hurricane force winds
• Engineering

## 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

## Wind Power

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
• Engineering

## Stacking Cups

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will work in small groups to stack Solo cups vs. Styrofoam cups to see how many of each it takes for the two stacks to be equal. Students will then derive a system of linear equations to model the scenario of the two stacks of cups.
• Math

## 3D Printing Robots

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
• Math
• Science
• Technology
New

## City Life

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will create a case study to demonstrate how to incorporate smart city technology into an assigned city.
• Technology

## 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

## Crack the Code

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
• Technology

## Cyber Security

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
• Engineering
• Technology
