Level: 2
In this activity, students will construct a water wheel with household materials that can be used to lift an object.
  • Science
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the physical characteristics and absorption of types of materials that make up soil.
  • Science
Grades:
  • 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
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 4
In this activity, students will use a ramp to launch a ball and strike a target.
  • Science

Stomp Rockets

  • Manufacturing
Camera Tablet
Grades:
  • K–5
  • 6–8
Level: 4
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of performing a controlled experiment and how different variables affect the distance travelled by a stomp rocket.
  • Science
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 3
In this activity, students will assess solar power by comparing its effect on rain (water), sleet (ice), and snow (popsicles).
  • Science

Sun, Moon and Stars

  • Manufacturing
Telescope
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 1
In this activity, students will paint craft spheres to resemble the Earth, moon and sun.
  • Science

Swarm!

  • Manufacturing
Grades:
  • K–5
Level: 2
In this activity, students work in groups to model swarming behaviors, and analyze the behaviors to develop an understanding of how they increase the chances of survival of a species.
