Labour Efficiency: Workloads or Makework?
New INSEAD research shows that indeed if you want something done, give it to a busy person. But how long can that formula work for?
In this demonstration, amaze learners by performing simple tricks using mirrors. These tricks take advantage of how a mirror can reflect your right side so it appears to be your left side. To make the effect more dramatic, cover the mirror with a cloth, climb onto the table, straddle the mirror, and then drop the cloth as you appear to "take off." This resource contains information about how this trick was applied during the making of the movie "Star Wars."
Make a Sun Clock
Before there were clocks, people used shadows to tell time. In this outdoor activity, learners will discover how to tell time using only a compass, a pencil, a handy printout, and a sunny day. Along the way, learners discover the difference between solar and standardized time, and between geographic and magnetic north.
This activity shows you how to make a mold terrarium using a jar and leftover food.

Note: don't put meat or fish in your mold terrarium--after a few days, these would start to smell very, v
This is a game that is sure to sharpen players' basic math skills. Players must use four randomly selected numbers to create an equation that equals a fifth number. The game gives learners a chance to practice different mathematical operations and to practice writing equations correctly. Fantastic Four is easily adapted for different skill levels.
Exploring a Complex Space-Filling Shape
In this activity, learners build a paper stellated rhombic dodecahedron, a three-dimensional 12-pointed star. Learners use pyramid patterns to assemble tri-pyramids and then tape eight tri-pyramids together to form a stellated rhombic dodecahedron. Learners also calculate the volume of the complex shape.
