In this two part activity, learners become draft detectives by constructing their own draft catchers to detect drafts around windows or doors.
In this outdoor activity, learners investigate the relationship between the slope of a trail and soil erosion.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of PDF under Hockey Sticks Activity) about composites, materials made of 2 or more different components.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Hovercraft) is a full inquiry investigation into hovercraft engineering and design optimization.
In this great hands-on activity, learners use patterns to make a teepee from newspaper that they sit inside.
In this four-day lesson, learners identify three-dimensional forms in castle design, research different parts of the castle with a focus on their uses, and design and enlarge a banner for the great ha
Play with your food while learning about engineering! Build a spaghetti bridge, then test its strength by piling on the marshmallows, raw spaghetti, raw linguine and coins.
This event guide features three related explorations in which learners investigate the following science concepts: how you design and build a structure helps determine how strong it will be; different
In this Cyberchase activity, learners make carpenter's squares and use them to measure square corners. Learners cut out the carpenter's square template and attach it to tagboard.
In this activity, learners explore how engineers have developed big wheels or Ferris wheels.
In this experience, learners use the internet to research physical details about Chihuly's Fireworks of Glass "Tower" and "Ceiling" and consider the decisions Chihuly had to make as he was planning th
In this engineering activity (page 3 of PDF), young learners investigate how a pole can be made stable by “planting” its base in the ground or adding supports to the base.
In this activity, learners use ABS pipe and an air leaf blower to make a strong shooting machine.
In this engineering activity (page 5 of PDF), young learners investigate how materials and design contribute to the strength of a structure, particularly walls.
Build and test a scale model of a rainforest canopy walkway.
This activity requires a Pico Cricket (tiny computer). Learners work on designing and building a sound sensor out of household materials, like plastic wrap and cardboard.
In this activity learners will build structures out of blocks and then roll balls to try to knock them down.
In this activity, learners explore how engineers work in a team to solve problems.
In this activity learners will build a neighborhood out of blocks and cardboard.
