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 investigate how electricity and magnetism are closely related by building and testing their own electromagnets.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will use geometric shapes to design a unique three-dimensional object that has an everyday use.
- 9–12

Grades:

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).
- 9–12

Grades:

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

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

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 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 will investigate factors that influence the temperature of an isolated system and relate this to average kinetic energy and thermodynamic properties.
- 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:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate how robots work including robotic parts and explain how energy is transferred to make different parts move.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

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:

Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate and categorize types of artificial intelligence to determine a protocol for the Turing Test.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this lesson, students will work in teams to design a pair of headphones specifically for children under three.
