In this two part activity, learners become draft detectives by constructing their own draft catchers to detect drafts around windows or doors.
Rubber Band Thermodynamics
In this demonstration, learners explore the thermal properties of rubber. Learners investigate whether a rubber band contracts or expands when heated.
Molecules in MotionAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners add food coloring to hot and cold water to see whether heating or cooling affects the speed of water molecules.
In this activity, learners are challenged to design, build and test a birdhouse that will stay cool in the sun.
Solar Water Heater
Learners work in teams to design and build solar water heating devices that mimic those used in residences to capture energy in the form of solar radiation and convert it to thermal energy.
Don't Throw it in the Garbage
In this activity, learners discover why only some types of plastic can be recycled.
In this activity, learners investigate passive solar building design with a focus solely on heating.
The Ups and Downs of ThermometersAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners examine the parts of a thermometer. After placing a thermometer in hot and cold water, learners look at molecular model animations of the liquid in a thermometer.
