Grades:

Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will examine wind power and learn to hardness it by creating a wind turbine.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will build a device that can carry a small ball from the top of a two-meter zip line to the bottom in less than six seconds.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the application of 3D printing to space technology.
- 9–12

Grades:

In this activity, students will create their own windmills and test them in a wind created by a fan.
- K–5

Grades:

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.
- K–5

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the benefits and limitations of the structure of the human ear.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will learn the different techniques used to map the ocean, and will practice using those techniques themselves in the classroom.
- K–5

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will observe how different beak types are suited to different environments.
- K–5

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

In this activity, students will explore DNA as a code for biological traits and extract samples of DNA from the interior of living cells.
- 6–8

Grades:

In this activity students will experiment with how far sound travels naturally, as compared to how far it travels with satellite amplification.
- K–5

Grades:

In this activity, students will use paper chromatography to separate the colors in the dyes used to color candies.
- K–5

Grades:

Students will create a case study to demonstrate how to incorporate smart city technology into an assigned city.
- 9–12

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 construct color wheels and spin them to see that light colors combine to form new colors.
- K–5

Grades:

Students will design one or more unique levels of a maze game using a free online coding program.
- 9–12

Grades:

Students will investigate the technological application of quantum effects in cyber security.
- 9–12

Funded by The Healthineers Fund of the Siemens Foundation

Grades:

After learning about the field of epidemiology and what the term “patient zero” means, students will participate in a whole group simulation that shows how quickly infectious diseases can be spread and work as a class to determine patient zero.
- 9–12
