Virtual Solar System Project In collaboration with NASA Ames and the University of West Florida Northwestern Principal Investigator: Kenneth D. Forbus. The goal of this project is to produce software that lets members of the public participate in simulated space activities. We hope that this will lead to a deeper understanding of the science and technology of space flight, and that such software will be useful for educators.
Marshmallow Flight Lab: STEM Mom offers two versions of this lab, one that introduces the scientific method to students, and a second that allows students to develop an experiment on their own. FREE printable.
Help students learn and remember the lab equipment commonly used in a science classroom using this diagram crossword. BONUS ACTIVITY: When they've completed the crossword, get them to cut out the diagram, glue it on a separate page and label the equipment. This activity would work well within an interactive notebook as well. It can function as an assessment of learning, or it can serve as another reinforcement activity. Afterwards, they have a handy labeled diagram to help them review.
