## How a Ball Falls

• IT
• 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

## How Low Can You Go?

• Energy
• 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

## IT Careers

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate, categorize and explore the multitude of IT career categories that are available through reading several IT-career cards.
• Technology

## Laser Beaming

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will use a laser pointer and flat mirrors to explore the law of reflection.
• Math

## Life Cycle of Engineering

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will use a life cycle audit to evaluate a product’s environmental impact on society by proposing design changes in order to reduce the negative impact it could have.
• Engineering

## Mapping It Out

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will use a topographic map of their school grounds to identify geologic features using a printed map.
• Science

## Market Research and Design

• IT
• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 3
In this lesson, students will work in teams to design a pair of headphones specifically for children under three.
• Engineering

## Motion in the Ocean

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 3
In this activity, students will model the process of heat transfer by convection in Earth's oceans.
• Science

## Perfectly Decomposed!

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 3
In this activity, students will place foods in different environments and observe the rate at which those foods decompose.
• Science

## Pixel Art

• IT
• 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

## Recycled Again

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will design a procedure for separating five types of recyclable materials based on their physical properties.
• Science

## Run-Off Solutions

• Manufacturing
• 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

## Scoping the Scene

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will explore the relationship between angles of incident and reflected light and use this relationship to design and test their own periscopes in a classroom competition.
• Science
