In this fun hands-on activity learners explore a simple machine: the lever. What happens to a load when you multiply the length of a lever? Find out here!
Learners design their own experiment to investigate whether the temperature of the surrounding water affects the rate at which the colored coating dissolves from an M&M.
Learners observe and record what happens when they manipulate bottles containing a liquid (water or corn syrup) and one or more objects (screw, nail, paper clip).
Learners manipulate opaque, sealed boxes and attempt to determine their interior structures. Each box contains a moving ball and one or more fixed barriers.
Young learners investigate and observe the properties of three liquids -- water, vegetable oil, and corn syrup. They use their senses to collect data and ask and answer questions.
Learners conduct an experiment to determine the rate at which two materials, sand and water, heat up and cool down.
In this great hands-on activity, learners use patterns to make a teepee from newspaper that they sit inside.
This three-part activity consists of an activity that groups of learners develop themselves, a given procedure, and an optional demonstration.
In this lab activity, learners act as fellow scientists and colleagues of Isaac Newton. He has asked them to independently test his ideas on the nature of motion, in particular his 2nd Law.
Using indirect methods, learners determine the shape and size of a piece of carpet hidden under a piece of plywood.
Learners turn over a random selection of cards from a larger set. From the words revealed, they try to determine the sentence represented on the larger set of cards.
Learners investigate a pre-constructed mystery tube to determine its interior mechanism.
Learners observe the outside and inside of raw chicken eggs, record descriptions, and hypothesize what will happen when a facilitator drops an egg on the floor.
Learners use scientific processes to solve a crime. As they get clues, learners must create a hypothesis then adjust that hypothesis as more information is revealed.
In this lesson, learners are challenged to discover the relationship among six numbers.
In this interactive board game, learners "hire" different types of scientists to help canine character Ruff Ruffman solve unusual problems.
In this activity, learners explore the process of condensation.
A group of learners has an envelope containing a series of bank checks. A few checks are removed at a time, and the team attempts to construct a plausible scenario which involves those checks.
Learners explore the physical properties of a variety of balls and how they bounce.
