In this activity, learners build a game that tests their steadiness. Learners construct the game board by setting up an electrical circuit and a wand.
In this activity, learners explore how objects can have positive, negative, or neutral charges, which attract, repel and move between objects.
In this electrochemistry activity, learners will explore two examples of electroplating.
In this activity, learners explore the relationship between electric charges and magnetic fields.
In this activity, learners build models of atoms and molecules, then consider their role in different phases of matter, density, and mixtures and solutions.
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners discover that a magnet falls more slowly through a metallic tube than it does through a nonmetallic tube.
In this activity, learners will investigate static electricity as they create waterless snow globes.
In this activity, learners make a scale model of an atom to see how big or how small an atom is compared to its nucleus. Learners will realize that most of matter is just empty space!
In this activity, learners build a tiny but powerful flashlight out of simple materials. Use this activity to introduce learners to electrical circuits and conductivity.
In this electrochemistry activity, young learners and adult helpers create a battery from a potato to run a clock.
In this activity about electricity, learners explore what happens when you blow a fuse.
In this activity, learners use marshmallows and gum drops to construct seven models of molecules. Learners classify (solid, liquid or gas) and draw diagrams of the molecules.
In this activity, learners explore the parts of a circuit by modeling, as a group, a “human” circuit.
In this quick activity, learners explore static electricity using a plastic comb, wool cloth, puffed rice, and a plastic bag.
In this activity, learners make an electroscope out of a foam cup, straw, aluminum pie pan, thread, and foil. Learners use their electroscopes to test for static electricity.
The Let's Do Chemistry "Build a Battery" activity lets participants learn how batteries work and how materials behave, change, and interact by building their own simple battery out of metal and felt w
In this two-part activity about luminescence, learners explore the chemistry that happens inside glow sticks and other light producing reactions.
In this activity, learners use geometry to predict the shape of carbon. Learners twist and attach chenille stem pieces that represent bonds between different carbon atoms.
In this activity, learners create models of ionic compounds and observe the chemical formula of binary molecules they have created.
