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.
Learners add drops of four liquids (water, alcohol, salt water, and detergent solution) to different surfaces and observe the liquids' behavior.
In this activity, learners conduct a simulation exercise related to public key encryption and try to intercept a message sent between two learners.
In this activity, learners smell bottles containing bee pheromone molecules (or herb/spice extracts as a substitute). Bees release these molecules to send messages to each other.
Learners use shop tools and various materials to construct a magnetic spinner and a compass.
In this activity, learners use a pneumatic trough (see related activity) to generate and collect pure oxygen.
In this activity (on pages 36-39), learners make a model of a watershed out of paper, then run water down the mountain to simulate how rainfall and pollution affect watersheds.
In this engineering challenge, learners design and build a crane out of cardboard to see how heavy a load it can lift.
Fat is a very important component in our diet. It's the most efficient source of energy in our bodies, and plays an important role in the flavor of foods.
Learners observe projectile motion by launching wooden balls off of a table top. They set up a rubber-band launcher so that each ball experiences a consistent amount of force.
In this game, learners create flash cards with an image on one side (of an animal, for example) and the sound that animal makes on the other.
In this environmental science lesson, learners will examine the dangers of mercury and how humans contribute to growing mercury emissions on Earth.
In this activity, learners hook up a hair to a lever system and create a hair hygrometer to measure changes in humidity.
In this activity, learners cut out a fish and then "paint" it using universal indicator and acids and bases.
Visitors add drops of copper sulfate solution onto a steel nail. They observe the nail change color from silver to brown as the copper plates onto the nail.
In this activity, learners discover that some things only stand up while they are spinning.
This activity (on pages 35-43) lets learners analyze a "herd of elk" to detect the spread of a bacterial disease called brucellosis.
In this activity about ramps, learners explore and measure the rate at which spherical objects roll down a ramp.
In this activity, learners create their own constellations and star patterns and write a short, descriptive story explaining the significance of their star pattern/constellation.
