Learners investigate the concept of humidity by using a dry and wet sponge as a model. They determine a model for 100% humidity, a sponge saturated with water.
This is a simple activity fully driven by imagination. Using materials from the home, toys, or items from nature, learners create their own world to play with.
In this online game, learners test their knowledge of human anatomy.
In this detailed activity (on pages 9-18), learners investigate the body parts of a parasitic ascaris worm by making and dissecting clay models.
Ocean acidification is a problem that humans will have to deal with as we release more and more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Using pipe cleaners, straws, and beads, learners explore the building blocks of life by creating their own model of DNA.
Make a big canvas of iridescent color with pvc pipe! In this Exploratorium Science Snack, you'll need to cut and assemble some PVC pipe, but the pay-off, the soap-bubble canvas, is big.
In this activity, learners build a 1:140 "scale model" of NASA's X-33 Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Technology Demonstrator, and investigate how the model dimensions compare to the real vehicle.
In this outdoor, sunny day activity, learners experiment with paper leaf models to discover how some desert plants conserve water.
By making models of light waves with paper, learners can understand why different colors appear in bubbles.
How does a green roof, or roof covered by plants, affect the temperature of the inside and outside of a building? Learners design and build houses to find out the answer.
In this activity, learners imitate the way vocal cords work by building a model from a plastic cup, rubber band, and a straw.
In this activity, learners make scale models of the Sun and Earth out of paper mache.
Learners build a model of a pollution control device--a cyclone. A cyclone works by whirling the polluted air in a circle and accumulating particles on the edges of the container.
“Exploring the Solar System: Big Sun, Small Moon” is a hands-on activity that explores the concept of apparent size and allows visitors to experience this phenomena using familiar objects—a tennis bal
In this activity, learners make a 3-D model of DNA using paper and toothpicks. While constructing this model, learners will explore the composition and structure of DNA.
Teams of learners use a series of stick figures made from pipe cleaners to model a dance routine. Then, they use this model to communicate to another learner who performs the dance routine.
“Exploring the Solar System: Pocket Solar System” is a hands-on activity in which visitors make a scale model of the distances between objects in our solar system.
In this online game, learners run an outer space drink stand and thirsty alien customers are on the way.
Learners model the Sun-Earth-Moon system to show what causes the Moon's appearance to change when viewed from the Earth.
