What are biofuels? What is a biofuels processing technician? In this activity, students analyze a case study of Sweden's biofuel program. They then compare and contrast Sweden with the USA, and their own community. Activities in this Teacher Sheet support the following NGSS standards: MSPS1-3 and HSPS1-4

Making Energy From Trash

What makes your muscles 'electric'? In this activity, students analyze a case study of a hamster nanogenerator to determine that muscles, including those int the human body, create electric fields. This activity supports NGSS standards and

Explore transmission and reflection of waves (MS-PS4-2 and HS-PS4-5) through a kinesthetic game. Then students connect the principles of waves to a career as a submarine sonar technician.

Submarine Sonar Technician Lesson Plan

In this lesson students will act as animal scientists to research the bizarre Belgian Blue Cattle. Students will examine genetic factors influencing growth (NGSS standards and to determine how animal scientists have developed this massive animal.

How big are the canyons on Mars?In this game, students superimpose familiar objects onto images of canyons on Mars to get an idea of just how big they are. Objects include a school bus, stadium, Texas, Hawaii, and the contiguous US. Informative feedback makes the activity educational as well as fun.

Astronaut: prepare for a mission to mars! (lesson plan and PBL assessment)

In this lesson, students act as bioacoustic researchers, rotating through five stations to listen to and analyze animal mating calls. Students then read supporting information regarding each animal to deduce the reproductive purpose of the vocalization.
