Water Holes to Mini-Ponds
Dig a hole, line it, fill it with fresh water, and you have a water hole: a good place to study colonization.
Going for a Spin: Making a Model Steam Turbine
In this activity, learners explore how various energy sources can be used to cause a turbine to rotate.
Beginning Statistical Inquiries into the Scientific Method: Jelly-Side-Down
This activity allows learners to explore the scientific method in an open-ended fashion, using the 4-P Approach to Science Inquiry developed by the University of Wisconsin, Beloit.
Get a Leg Up
In this activity, learners experiment and collect data during a simulation of the fluid shifts experienced by astronauts' bodies in microgravity.
Let's Look at Water & the Scientific Method
This activity has learners observe water and compare it to other liquids.
Wind Turbine Blade Design
In this activity, learners design, build and test wind turbines. Learners go through the design process and use the scientific method to test important blade variables.
Introduction to the Scientific Method
In this activity (page 26 of the PDF), learners make observations, formulate hypotheses and design a controlled experiment, based on the reaction of carbon dioxide with calcium hydroxide.
Exploring A Hydrogel
In this activity on page 10 of the PDF, learners develop an experiment to answer the following question: "How much water can the hydrogel in a baby diaper hold?" Use this activity to explore polymers,
