In this design challenge, learners will create wind-powered contraptions to transport a load, such as a cupcake or another small object, and test to see if they work.
This activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Exercise and Memory) is a full inquiry investigation into the effects of exercise on short term memory.
The "Rocket Reactions" activity is an exciting way to learn about how materials interact, behave, and change.
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 activity, learners keep track of how much paper the group uses in a week. Build awareness of paper waste, while strengthening measurement and estimation skills.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Colorblind Dogs) is a full inquiry investigation into dogs' ability (or inability) to see color.
Based of the The Tech Challenge 2015, learners will engage in two mini-design challenges related to seismic engineering.

Learners work in groups to construct bridges using stale marshmallows and toothpicks.
Learners design, build, and test models of "dragon boats" made from up to three milk cartons.
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity) is a full inquiry investigation about the different causes of glacial melt.
If you have 3-foot dowels and rubber bands, you can can started on this fun and open design challenge. You can make structures big and small: make it so you can fit your parent into it!
In this fascinating and fun experiment, learners use chemistry to identify a mystery powder and to solve a "crime," a process similar to that used by real forensic scientists.
Many common household cleaners are antimicrobials.
In this activity, learners will engineer a roof using simple materials to protect a construction paper person from a rainstorm.
In this activity learners will build roller coasters and test them using small balls or marbles.
In this activity, learners of all ages will design a functional bird feeder using familiar, every day materials.
In this activity, learners make acid/base indicator paper, place the indicator paper on an anthill, disturb a bunch of ants, and then observe what happens!
