In this activity, learners work with an adult to build a rocket and launcher out of a plastic 2-liter bottle, flexible plastic hose, plastic tubing, toilet paper tube, and duct tape.
In this fun hands-on activity learners explore a simple machine: the lever. What happens to a load when you multiply the length of a lever? Find out here!
Learners construct an electricity-generating wind turbine out of a plastic bottle.
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into how "bounciness" relates to the distance a ball will fly when hit off a batting tee.
Fat is a very important component in our diet. It's the most efficient source of energy in our bodies, and plays an important role in the flavor of foods.
In this two part activity, learners become draft detectives by constructing their own draft catchers to detect drafts around windows or doors.
In this activity, learners construct a simple game to test their hand-eye coordination and steadiness of hand.
In this activity, learners explore how the power of the sun can be harnessed to heat and cool a building.
In this activity, learners explore how wind energy can be generated on both a large and small scale.
In this activity, learners investigate various appliances and electronics, discovering how much energy each uses and how much carbon dioxide (CO2) is released to produce that energy.
In this activity, learners build an electric two-paddle boat using paint paddles, plastic knives, and empty water bottles.
This activity (on pages 16-23) lets learners measure each other's vital signs—the signs that help doctors understand what's going on in a patient body.
In this activity, learners experiment and observe how the color of materials that cover the Earth affects the amounts of sunlight our planet absorbs.
In this activity, learners explore how various energy sources can be used to cause a turbine to rotate.
In this lesson, learners develop a robot arm using common materials. Learners explore design, construction, and teamwork, as well as materials selection and use.
In this outdoor activity (on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity), learners will investigate the transfer of energy using sports equipment.
In this activity, learners construct their own small catapults using simple materials. Learners follow visual instructions to build their launching device.
In this activity, learners are challenged to design and construct a windmill to harness the power of wind.
In this activity (on page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Soccer Ball Kick), learners will investigate the transfer of energy using sports equipment.
