## Explore 3D Design

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will use geometric shapes to design a unique three-dimensional object that has an everyday use.
• Technology

## Design All Around Us

• IT
• 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

## Crack the Code

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
• Technology

## 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

## Create a Crater

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
• Science

## Biomes and Biomimicry

• IT
• 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

## 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

## 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

## Fast Lane

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 2
In this activity, students will investigate how electricity and magnetism are closely related by building and testing their own electromagnets.
• Science

## Recycling Improvements

• Manufacturing
• 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

## Modeling Constraints

• IT
• 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

## A Rocky Test

• Energy
• 6–8
Level: 2
Students will gain an understanding of rock types and their different responses to physical and chemical weathering.
• Science

## Anchor's Away!

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 3
Students will examine two different techniques for mapping different aspects of the ocean, and will model those techniques on a small scale in the classroom.
• Science

• Energy
