Grades:

Students will investigate the relationship between quadratic functions and the parabolic path traveled by a ball in motion. Students will analyze data to understand the mathematical relationships that exist along the path of a ball in flight.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students build simple circuits to investigate the conductivity of solutions.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will build a simple solar cooker, make observations and qualitatively describe the melting rate of a piece of chocolate in the cooker.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how a simple hovercraft uses the forces of motion to move.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will make their own weather station.
- 6–8

Grades:

In this activity, students will create their own insulating "ice chambers" and then test them against the models made by their classmates.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will create a simple electromagnet using a nail, a battery, and copper wire.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students use a stream table to model the processes of erosion and streambed formation.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will examine the behavior of different types of solids when they are dissolved in water and explain those behaviors by examining the properties of the solids.
- 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 a ramp to launch a ball and strike a target.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will model the weathering of rocks by shaking sugar cubes in a container.
- K–5
- 6–8

Grades:

In this activity, students will create their own windmills and test them in a wind created by a fan.
- K–5

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:

In this activity, students will learn the different techniques used to map the ocean, and will practice using those techniques themselves in the classroom.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity students will experiment with how far sound travels naturally, as compared to how far it travels with satellite amplification.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
