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

AI

  • IT
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 2
Students will investigate and categorize types of artificial intelligence to determine a protocol for the Turing Test.
  • Engineering
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 2
In this lesson, students will work in teams to create a structure that will withstand simulated hurricane force winds
  • Engineering
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 2
Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
  • Engineering
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
  • Math
  • Science
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
  • Engineering
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 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

Fast Lane

  • Manufacturing
Drone
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
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.
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
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.
  • Science
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 4
Description: Students consider the benefits and tradeoffs of using credit and learn about the role interest plays in using credit cards. Then, they create an equation that describes the length of time it takes to pay off a debt.
  • Math
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students work together to build an algorithm for drawing a pixel picture using coordinate directions and color assignments on graph paper. Then, students follow the algorithms of other groups to create the images on a larger scale with post-it notes.
  • Math
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students explore the basic components of vehicle design and learn about the conditions affecting Mars rovers. They design an improved Mars rover by defining a problem and proposing a solution in the form of improved design elements.
  • Engineering
