## AI

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will investigate and categorize types of artificial intelligence to determine a protocol for the Turing Test.
• Engineering
• Technology

## Floating on Air

• Manufacturing
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will investigate the relationship between friction and motion by building a simple hovercraft.
• 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

## Hurricane Force

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 2
In this lesson, students will work in teams to create a structure that will withstand simulated hurricane force winds
• Engineering

## Wind Power

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 2
Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
• Engineering

## 3D Printing Robots

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
• Math
• Science
• Technology

## Cyber Security

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 3
Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
• Engineering
• Technology

## Credit Card Debt

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 4
Description: Students consider the benefits and tradeoffs of using credit and learn about the role interest plays in using credit cards. Then, they create an equation that describes the length of time it takes to pay off a debt.
• Math

## 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

## 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

## 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

## 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

## 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
New

## A Ball In Motion

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 4
Students will investigate the relationship between quadratic functions and the parabolic path traveled by a ball in motion. Students will analyze data to understand the mathematical relationships that exist along the path of a ball in flight.
• Math
• Science

## Designing a Mars Rover
