## 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

## Blowin' in the Wind

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will create their own windmills and test them against the models made by their classmates.
• Technology

## Bottle Music

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will make sound three ways: by blowing across the top of a bottle, tapping a glass, and running a finger around the rim of a glass.
• Science

## Bounce

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students drop rubber balls in order to observe and measure the effects of elasticity. They use graphs to make predictions for further trials.
• Science

## Bouncing Properties

• Energy
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will test and observe the bouncing properties of different types of balls (softball, basketball, golf ball, playground ball, volleyball, beach ball, ball of paper).
• Science

## Cartesian Diver

• Manufacturing
• K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will build a Cartesian diver and discover how compression and changes in density cause the diver to mysteriously move up and down.
• Science
