In this activity, learners get hands-on experience with ratios and scaling while making their own jewelry out of recycled plastic containers.
In this chemistry activity (page 1 of PDF SciGirls Activity: Milk Carton Boat), learners will create a blob of stretchable funny putty out of a water, borax, and glue mixture.
To learn how friction affects motion, learners build a measurement tool from a rubber band and other simple materials.
In this physics activity, challenge learners to make and race a balloon-powered car. Learners construct the body out of a paper cup, wheels out of wooden spools. and fuel tank out of a balloon.
Stop the Stretching
Learners work with plastic sheeting, masking tape, and string to design the perfect material for plastic chair webbing, and then construct their webbing.
