Monthly Activities
  • Tragedy of the Commons
    Difficulty: 1 National Education Standards

    In this activity students will play a simple game designed to simulate the situation known as "the tragedy of the commons." Students will later work together in groups to craft rules for sharing resources so that those resources are not overused.

  • Stay on Target!
    Difficulty: 2 National Education Standards

    In this activity, students will use a ramp to launch a ball and strike a target.

  • Oh The Tension
    Difficulty: 2 National Education Standards

    In this activity, students carefully add drops of liquids to the surface of a penny to help them understand the concept of surface tension.

  • Shaky Ground
    Difficulty: 4 National Education Standards

    In this activity, students will design a bridge or a building and observe how it performs in a simulated earthquake. Then, they will revise their designs to make them stronger and perform the simulation again.

  • Hole-In-One
    Difficulty: 3 National Education Standards

    In this activity, students will design their own miniature golf hole and then determine the path along which a ball would travel to score a "hole-in-one."
