Spin the Water Wheel

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will construct a water wheel with household materials that can be used to lift an object.
• Science

Splendid Soil

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the physical characteristics and absorption of types of materials that make up soil.
• Science

Stacking Cups

• IT
• 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

Stay on Target

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 4
In this activity, students will use a ramp to launch a ball and strike a target.
• Science

Stomp Rockets

• Manufacturing
• K–5
• 6–8
Level: 4
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of performing a controlled experiment and how different variables affect the distance travelled by a stomp rocket.
• Science

Sun! Power! Ice! Pop!

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will assess solar power by comparing its effect on rain (water), sleet (ice), and snow (popsicles).
• Science

Sun, Moon and Stars

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will paint craft spheres to resemble the Earth, moon and sun.
• Science

Swarm!

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students work in groups to model swarming behaviors, and analyze the behaviors to develop an understanding of how they increase the chances of survival of a species.
• Science

Synthetic Properties

• IT
• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 4
In this activity, students will compare samples of monomers and polymers in powder and thread form (sugar/cotton candy and cotton flock/cotton balls).
• Science

The Dynamic Trio

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will learn about the stars, planets, and Moon found in our solar system and how they relate to one another.
• Science

The Mystery Forces

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will learn that objects do not always have to be touching to exert a force on each other.
• Science

The New Kid on the Block

• K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will learn how non-native species can damage the balance of an ecosystem.
• Science

The Time of Our Life

• Manufacturing
• 6–8
Level: 2
In this activity, students will research ancient organisms and create a timeline showing when they appeared on Earth.
• Science

This is How I See It

• Manufacturing
• K–5
