## Solar System Scale

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 3
Students will gain an understanding of the comparative size of the objects in our Solar System and the great distances between them.
• Science

## Sonar

• IT
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, teachers will create a mysterious topography using small boxes inside a copy paper box.
• Science

## 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

## Sun! Power! Ice! Pop!

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will assess solar power by comparing its effect on rain (water), sleet (ice), and snow (popsicles).
• Science

## This is How I See It

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will construct interactive lunar cycle models to illustrate the phases of the Moon in 3 dimensions.
• Science

## Through the Looking Glass

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 3
In this activity, students construct a spectroscope and use it to observe the spectra of various sources of light.
• Science

• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will gain an understanding of the difference between additive and subtractive manufacturing by creating a video of a prototype they will build using both methods.
• Technology

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will learn about tornadoes and simulate one inside a small bottle.
• Science

## Up Periscope!

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the law of reflection by tracing the path that light travels, and designing a periscope to demonstrate understanding.
• Science

## Watching Weather

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will make their own weather station consisting of actual and simplified versions of real weather equipment.
• Science

## What a Plant Wants

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will analyze different types of soil.
• Science

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will 'become' water droplets and travel among the different storages of water.
• 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

## 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

## Avoiding Cybercrime

• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will learn the foundations of cybersecurity and work together to analyze a variety of cybercrime scenarios. In addition, they will propose measures they might take to prevent each type of cybercrime from happening to them.
