Light vs. Heat Bulbs
Students measure the light output and temperature (as a measure of heat output) for three types of light bulbs to identify why some light bulbs are more efficient (more light with less energy) than others.
We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby!
Students discuss several human reproductive technologies available today — pregnancy ultrasound, amniocentesis, in-vitro fertilization and labor anesthetics. They learn how each technology works, and that these are ways engineers have worked to improve the health of expecting mothers and babies.
Riding the Radio Waves
Through this lesson students learn how AM radios work through basic concepts about waves and magnetic fields. Waves are first introduced by establishing the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves, as well as identifying the amplitude and frequency of a given waveform. Students then learn general concepts about magnetic fields, leading into how radio waves are created and transmitted. Several demonstrations can be performed in order to help students better understand these concepts.
This activity is a teacher-led demonstration of continental drift and includes a math worksheet for students involving the calculation of continental drift over time. Students will understand what continental drift is, why it occurs, and how earthquakes occur because of it.
Ohm's Law I
Students will work to increase the intensity of a light bulb by testing batteries in series and parallel circuits. It analyzes Ohm’s Law, power, parallel and series circuits, and ways to measure voltage and current.

ATV: a very special delivery
Early in 2008, an Ariane 5 rocket blasted off from Europe’s spaceport in French Guiana. The rocked carried the most sophisticated lorry ever built – the European Space Agency’s Automated Transfer Vehicle, the ATV. From its first flight, ATV will play a vital role in International Space Station (ISS) servicing. Every 12 months or so, the ATV will haul 7.5 tonnes of cargo to the ISS, 400 km above the Earth. The video - addressed mostly to the youngsters- tells the story of a very special del
