In this activity (on page 2 of PDF under GPS: Roller Coaster Design Activity), learners will use food cans of many different properties (sizes, shapes, and weights) and set two cans on their sides at
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into how "bounciness" relates to the distance a ball will fly when hit off a batting tee.
Learners design their own experiment to investigate whether the temperature of the surrounding water affects the rate at which the colored coating dissolves from an M&M.
Learners create hard water by mixing Epsom salt and water. Then they compare what happens when soap solution is mixed with hard water and regular water.
This three-part activity consists of an activity that groups of learners develop themselves, a given procedure, and an optional demonstration.
In this activity, learners create a xylophone by filling glasses with different amounts of water and tapping them with a metal spoon.
In this activity related to rotational inertia (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Microgravity), learners will use a bit of scientific experimenting to test if open-faced peanut butter sandwi
This activity (page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Double Dutch) is a full inquiry investigation into whether hearing or seeing has a bigger effect on jump rope performance.
In this activity, learners heat and cool carbonated water to find out whether temperature has an effect on how fast the dissolved gas leaves carbonated water.
In this activity, learners add objects and substances to carbonated water to discover that added objects increase the rate at which dissolved gas comes out of solution.
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Farm Animals Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into raising livestock.
Learners build a pendulum from a yo-yo, and then design their own experiment to determine what affects the pendulum's period of swing.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how temperature will affect the height of a soda geyser.
In this math lesson, learners explore variables and their uses.
Learners design their own experiment to determine which M&M color dissolves the fastest in water.
In this engineering activity, learners design parachutes to give toy figures safe landings. This activity is great for practicing an important STEM skill--changing only one variable at a time.
In this activity, learners explore the process of condensation.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how many Mentos are needed to make the tallest possible soda geyser.
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine which brand of soda makes the best (highest) soda geyser.
