In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners follow a recipe to make a dough similar to the clay artists use to make sculptures.
This open-ended art project allows learners to create their own colorful ice sculpture by using rock salt and food coloring on a solid block of ice.
Use a Pico Cricket (micro-controller) to animate your art! You can program a Pico Cricket to make your art spin, light up, or make music.
In this engineering activity, learners explore simple machines and then build cardboard automata using cams.
Learn about friction and kinetic energy with this cool spinning toy.
In this activity, learners explore the possibilities of clay as a natural material.
Play-Doh is conductive! Use the semiconductive qualities of Play-Doh to make your own squeezable instrument. Pico Cricket is required.
In this experience, learners use the internet to research physical details about Chihuly's Fireworks of Glass "Tower" and "Ceiling" and consider the decisions Chihuly had to make as he was planning th
In this design challenge activity, learners build a tower that’s at least 12 inches high with two or more parts that move (spin, sway, or flap) in the wind.
In this activity, learners create a three-dimensional sculpture while examining the characteristics of fish.
In this activity, learners explore the history of making objects from glass and artistry of Dale Chihuly.
In this activity, learners will use a variety of household and/or natural objects to design a sculpture that balances from a single point.
In this activity, learners explore the size and scale of dinosaurs. Learners listen to "Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs" by Byron Barton to understand some background information about dinosaurs.
In this activity, learners make mobiles to explore the concepts of balance, counterbalance, weight, and counterweight.
In this activity, learners take measurements and create charts to learn about the size of dinosaurs and their relative scale to humans.
In this activity, learners manipulate paper to build original 3-dimensional sculptures. Appropriate for any age, learners can use fingers to tear, crumple, or fold, and if available, scissors to cut.
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur skeletons and anatomy. Learners make observations about a T. rex skeleton diagram and then measure the skeleton length and width.
This activity introduces learners to the structure and properties of carbon nanotubes.
Cardboard Automata are a playful way to explore simple machine elements while creating a mechanical sculpture.
