In this activity, learners will use clear nail polish and the power of chemistry to create paper with a rainbow sheen.
In this activity, learners will make their own slushies and learn some of the science behind how the process works.
In this activity, learners will create a drawing with dry erase markers and watch it come to life. Learners will explore chemistry, art and storytelling through this activity.
In this activity related to rotational inertia (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Microgravity), learners will use a bit of scientific experimenting to test if open-faced peanut butter sandwi
In this activity, learners will explore the dynamics of air pressure by using a candle, a cup, and a dish of water.
In this lab, learners grow broad bean (also called fava bean) plants in three EarthBoxes for a few weeks before exposing one to wind (using a fan), another to heat (using a lamp), and the third to not
DNA is the thread of life. Encoded in its genetic sequence is the information that makes each of us unique. This activity allows you to see long, stringy strands of DNA extracted from wheat germ.
DNA is the thread of life. Encoded in its genetic sequence is the information that makes each of us unique.
Using simple materials from around the house and recycled materials, learners will engineer a grabber device to pick up and put down objects that are at least 12 inches away.
In this activity, learners test the pH of safe liquids available at home by creating a pH indicator from mashed blueberries.
In this activity, learners will explore how water affects marker on filter paper. Learners will use science process skills such as making observations and predictions as they explore color.
In this experiment, learners isolate Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) from onion cells using a simple extraction procedure.
Many common household cleaners are antimicrobials.
In this activity, learners will experiment with the physics of flight by making a gliding contraption with strange looking wings. The activity explores flight with connections to the natural world.
In this activity, learners will use static elecricity to bend a stream of water without touching it. Learners will explore physics and cause and effect through this activity.
In this activity, learners design and build a Zoom-a-rang using everyday materials. Experiment with different materials and Zoom-a-rang designs to see how they fly.
In this sensory activity, young learners explore chemical reactions by making their own play dough from home.
In this activity, learners will use simple materials to explore centripetal force and variables by swinging a cup of water without having the water spill out.
Experiment with liquids of different densities and create liquid layers. For example, oil and water have different densities: oil floats on water because it is less dense than water.
