Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students will use geometric shapes to design a unique three-dimensional object that has an everyday use.
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
In this lesson, students will work in teams to design a pair of headphones specifically for children under three.
  • Engineering
Grades:
  • 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.

Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students will learn about the concept of low impact development: practices that use or copy natural processes such as absorption or evaporation to protect water quality.
  • Engineering
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 4
Students will explore how satellites send images from telescopes in space, which we can access on Earth via the Internet.
  • Technology
Grades:
