This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Kites) is a full inquiry investigation into how a kite’s shape affects its performance.
In this physics activity, learners build their own rockets out of film canisters and construction paper.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how temperature will affect the height of a soda geyser.
This demonstration/activity helps learners understand why higher elevations are not always warm simply because "hot air rises." Learners use a tire pump to increase the pressure and temperature inside
In this activity, learners construct hand-held altitude trackers. The device is a sighting tube with a marked water level that permits measurement of the inclination of the tube.
In this activity, learners use an astrolabe to measure the altitude of objects. Learners will first practice taking measurements by measuring the altitude of trees and buildings.
In this activity, learners make an astrolabe, a device used for measuring altitude, including the height of objects in the sky.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how many Mentos are needed to make the tallest possible soda geyser.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine which brand of soda makes the best (highest) soda geyser.
In this weather-related activity, learners make a portable cloud in a bottle.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Lift Off) is a full inquiry investigation into the engineering challenges of sending scientific sensors into space.
Learners develop an understanding of air pressure in two different activities.
In this experiment, learners use a blow dryer and water bottle to observe and record changes in air pressure caused by changes in temperature.
