In this engineering activity, learners investigate the differences between the strength of bridges made from flat and round building materials.
In this quick activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Tug O' War), learners will test how many pennies a flat paper index card bridging the gap between two stacks of books is able to supp
In this fun group activity involving music and movement, learners are introduced to the idea that many insects walk by using their legs to create "alternating triangles." Learners sing the "Ants Go Ma
In this engineering activity, challenge learners to construct a paper bridge that can support 100 pennies.
In this simple activity, learners discover how a mere piece of paper can be used to hold up the weight of a heavy book.
Each group of learners uses everyday materials, such as paper, toothpicks, and tape to design and construct a structure intended to support the weight of a cinder block for 30 seconds.
In this engineering activity, challenge learners to build a tower out of 10 sheets of newspaper and 3 feet of masking tape, which can hold a golf ball balancing at the top.
