This is written as a static display, but can easily be adapted to a hands-on experiment for learners to conduct.
In this activity, learners participate in a scavenger hunt, searching for and recognizing minerals and products that contain minerals.
In this electrochemistry activity, learners will explore two examples of electroplating.
In this chemistry lab activity, learners model the colors of fireworks by burning metallic solutions in a flame and observing the different colors produced.
In this quick SciGirls activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Doghouse Design), learners will be introduced to the concept of thermal conductivity.
Coins are everyday objects which tell a lot about the people who use them.
In this activity about magnetism (page 4 of the PDF), learners will experiment with magnets and different objects to find out that not all metals are attracted to magnets.
In this activity, learners explore chemical engineering and how the processes of chemical plating and electroplating have impacted many industries.
In this activity, learners discover that our hands are not reliable thermometers.
In this activity on page 5 of the PDF, learners use their knowledge of energy and batteries to create homemade flashlights.
In this archaeology activity, learners make observations and conduct an experiment to demonstrate the effect saltwater has on artifacts.
Learners investigate an iron-fortified cereal by stirring it with a strong magnet. They discover that metallic iron is present in some cereals.
In this activity, learners light an LED with five cents. Learners use two different metals and some sour, salty water to create a cheap battery.
