Level: 3
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.

Build a Bungee

  • Energy
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 4
Students will simulate a safe bungee jump using rubber bands and a small doll or action figure. Through experimentation, students will generate a linear equation to represent the relationship between the number of rubber bands and the distance the doll

Bounce

  • Energy
Grades:
  • 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.

A Ball In Motion

  • Energy
Grades:
  • 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.
