• Lunar and Planetary Institute
In this activity, dry ice and other items are used to construct a demonstration model of a comet that illustrates the comet nucleus, coma, and tails. This activity introduces learners to the...

\$10 - \$20 per group Ages 8 - 14 30 to 45 minutes
• WGBH
In this engineering activity (page 3 of PDF), young learners investigate how a pole can be made stable by “planting” its base in the ground or adding supports to the base. First, learners observe...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 4 - 8 30 to 45 minutes
• Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, College of Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder
Learners conduct four simple experiments to demonstrate the effects of air pressure. They use Bernoulli's Principle, that moving air exerts less pressure, to manipulate air pressure and see...

• WGBH
In this engineering activity, young learners investigate multi-level buildings. Learners observe buildings in their neighborhood and then, using simple household materials, create their own multi...

1 cent - \$1 per student Ages 4 - 6 30 to 45 minutes
• The Actuarial Foundation
In this math game, learners investigate probability by tossing coins. Learners determine the possible outcomes of tossing two coins simultaneously, and the probabilities of the different outcomes....

• Twin Cities Public Television
In this health and fitness activity, learners focus on the importance of daily physical activity, specifically walking. Learners use a simple method to measure their stride lengths and then...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 8 - 14 30 to 45 minutes
• The Actuarial Foundation
In this math activity, learners play a game of "baseball" and analyze the results of the game. Learners roll dice to play the "baseball" game -- different dice rolls represent...
