Have a HeartAdd to list Details
Your heart pumps blood throughout your body in one direction, around in a loop. In this activity, learners will make a model of one type of heart chamber called a ventricle.
Measure the Speed of a Water LeakAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity), learners will measure the rate at which water streams out of a leaky cup.
Jell-O Model of Microfluidics
This activity uses Jell-O(R) to introduce learners to microfluidics, the flow of fluids through microscopic channels.
A Cubic Foot Per SecondAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners measure and calculate the amount of cubic feet various containers contain. Next, learners investigate cubic feet per second (cps), by carrying jugs in one second.
Gravity FountainsAdd to list Details
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into the forces of gravity and air pressure.
Density Rainbow and the Great Viscosity Race
Learners conduct two activities to investigate two properties of liquids: density and viscosity. In a clear container, learners stack 7 different liquids which will layer according to their density.
In this experiment, learners examine how pressure affects water flow. In small groups, learners work with water and a soda bottle, and then relate their findings to pressure in the deep ocean.
Go With the FlowAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will observe laminar and turbulent flow of water using only a plastic bottle, liquid hand soap, food coloring and water.
A Slime By Any Other Name
This fun video explains how to make a batch of oobleck (or slime) and why this special substance is known as a "non-Newtonian" fluid. Watch as Mr.
Modeling Tidal Action
In this activity (Lesson 1), learners work in groups to create tide simulations.
Moving Model GlacierAdd to list Details
In this goopy activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity), learners will model glacial movement with “gak,” a white glue and liquid starch mixture.
In this outdoor water activity, learners explore how to change the direction of water flow. Learners make puddles in dirt or use existing puddles and sticks to make water flow.
Great Steamboat RaceAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners race small boats, made of cork, balsa wood, popsicle sticks etc., to investigate the rate and direction of currents in a stream or creek.
Glitter GlobeAdd to list Details
This activity shows learners (with adult supervision) how to make a Glitter Globe, a fabulous toy that shimmers when you shake it.
Floating and Falling Flows
Learners create beautiful fluid motion. They explore fluid dynamics, surface tension, solubility, and buoyancy while mixing liquids together.
