Learners observe and conduct experiments demonstrating the different properties of hot and cold materials.
In this activity, learners create a "Jam Jar Jet" based on Francois Reynst's discovery of a pulsejet engine, which uses one opening for both air intake and exhaust.
In this demonstration/activity, water streaming through holes in the bottom of a suspended soda pop can causes the can to rotate.
In this simple activity, learners see the production of a gas, which visibly fills up a balloon placed over the neck of a bottle.
The major goal of this math lesson is to have learners collect data from a variety of experiments, determine what models best fits their data, and explain why their models are best.
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.
In this classic reaction, learners baking soda and vinegar in a soda bottle to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. This gas inflates a balloon.
Learners build a simple aneroid barometer to learn about changes in barometric pressure and weather forecasting. They observe their barometer and record data over a period of days.
In this demonstration, learners observe the effects of density and pressure. A "diver" constructed out of a piece of straw and Blu-Tack will bob inside a bottle filled with water.
Learners use M&Ms® (or any other multi-color, equally-sized small candy or pieces) to create a pie graph that expresses the composition of air.
In this demonstration, learners observe the effects of air pressure. They will watch as marshmallows inside a bottle expand as a vacuum pump removes air from the bottle.
Learners smell balloons filled with different scents to guess what's inside. From this, they infer the presence and motion of scented molecules.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Extreme Sounds) is a full inquiry investigation into sound.
In this activity, learners explore how changes in fluid pressure affect the buoyancy of a Cartesian diver inside a plastic soda bottle.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Hovercraft) is a full inquiry investigation into hovercraft engineering and design optimization.
In this activity, learners observe what would happen to their bodies if they went to outer space without a space suit.
In this activity, learners (at least three) work together to explore the effects of atmospheric pressure.
In this quick activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Lava Flow Activity), learners will model how large depressions near the top of a volcano are formed by using an inflating and deflating balloon submerg
In this dramatic activity/demonstration about phase change and condensation, learners place an aluminum can filled with about two tablespoons of water on a stove burner.
