Grades:

In this activity, students will use a ramp to launch a car and reach a finish line.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the value of using a scale model and the effect of water speed on erosion rate and stream formation.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate how robots work including robotic parts and explain how energy is transferred to make different parts move.
- 9–12

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the structure of the human eye and analyze and classify optical illusions.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will investigate different ways to move a ball.
- K–5

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will participate in a scavenger hunt with their peers to classify inherited and learned traits.
- K–5

Grades:

In this lesson, students will work in teams to design a pair of headphones specifically for children under three.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will use a topographic map of their school grounds to identify geologic features using a printed map.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will explore the structures within a leaf where the process of photosynthesis occurs.
- K–5

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will participate in a leaf scavenger hunt and assemble a basic leaf collection.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will evaluate water ice balloons to reconstruct recent climate history by sorting different layers of evidence.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will learn about the upcoming planned missions to Mars from various space companies. They will then design a product that could be used to help astronauts as their bodies face the rigors of space on the long journey to Mars.
