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:
  • K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will evaluate water ice balloons to reconstruct recent climate history by sorting different layers of evidence.
  • Science
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
  • Science
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: 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
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 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
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
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: 3
Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
  • Engineering
  • Technology
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 3
Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
  • Technology

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 investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
  • Math
  • Science
  • Technology
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: 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: 2
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.
  • Science
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 2
Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
