Have you ever met anyone who has a a vastly different skin color than their brother or sister? This lesson explores this intriguing concept.
Students and teachers can also be creators or virtual reality learning resources. This tutorial will help teachers and students learn to create their own virtual scientific tours of interesting phenomena. To do this, you will use two or three different types of software together. The videos below offer a basic introduction to using VR 360 video and using ThingLink. We invite you to give it a try and reach out to our team if you would like additional assistance.
Students create their very own projector in this lesson to study optics.
Inertia and centripetal force are hard topics for students to learn. Through this lesson, students will explore these topics in relation to changing designs of Fidget Spinners with different weights (mass).
By making cars that are propelled by a fan, students in this lesson learn about motion, force, and circuits. This lesson also leverages engineering design skills for students to iteratively think about how some designs work ‘better’ than others.
