Grades:

In this activity, students will learn about the elements in the periodic table and how to interpret the information for each element.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will brainstorm why people live, work, and vacation by the shoreline.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will learn about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will learn about Earth's four major systems: geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate how electricity and magnetism are closely related by building and testing their own electromagnets.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the relationship between friction and motion by building a simple hovercraft.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this lesson, students will work in teams to create a structure that will withstand simulated hurricane force winds
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

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).
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will use geometric shapes to design a unique three-dimensional object that has an everyday use.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate and categorize types of artificial intelligence to determine a protocol for the Turing Test.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
