Learn about the importance of constellations and moon phases and how adaptations play a role in our survival on Earth.
In this workshop, students will explore what makes up a healthy forest, and how tree and soil health is important for sustaining ecosystems. Students will consider how human actions affect forests, and how forests are important in combatting climate change. Discussions will focus on positive actionable steps students can take to protect plant and soil health in their communities.
Nitrogen cycles through our ecosystems. It is an essential nutrient for many living things and plays a key role in the environment. However, too much nitrogen can be harmful.
Extreme weather occurs in many wild ways, which is affected by climate change! This workshop explores these implications.
Many environmental factors can impact plant growth, and as a farmer, you will have to look for genetic modifications that can help you grow the best crop this year!
Students design and build a structure that protects toy people from a hurricane.
Discover the impacts of ocean acidification by observing the effect of acidity on shellfish.
Students mine for chocolate chips in cookies, attempting to get as many chocolate chips as possible without damaging the cookie.
Students will get to learn about what a structure is and what materials can be used to build a strong and stable bridge.
Students build a beaver dam and lodge to understand what stable structures are and then they test their structure by placing a load on it - something heavy like a brick - and see if the force will make the structure collapse.
Students are introduced to a simple circuit and switch with a light bulb, similar to a Harry Potter type wand.
Students learn about conservation of energy, measure the bounce of a ball at different heights and then use elastic potential energy to make a paper glider fly having kinetic energy.
