Using Excel and Simple Machines to Give Students a Feel for Work, Force, and Distance Interactions
Sixth graders use a simple pulley device to demonstrate the relationship between work, force, and distance. They then have a discussion using Excel-generated graphs based on the data the students collected to help illustrate the concepts.
Students create programs using robots. They review vocabulary and icons related to programming and create a line of commands using the visual icons. Revising the order of the icons, they explore the possibility if the program works or not and write simple programs for the robots.

Ecology from the Owl's Mouth
Seventh graders are introduced to a large sample of species present in the Inwood Hill Park, branching into the survival tactics and history of each (e.g., the introduction of earthworms from European cargo ships). They then discover the balance between organisms and their environment and dissect owl pellets.
Eighth graders use the light sensors with the TI-83 Graphing Calculators to measure the light intensity of a common flashlight at variable distances. They then record the information and plot it on the calculator to determine the type of regression line that best fits the data.
Using GK12 Fellow for Enrichment period to motivate single students to achieve higher academic standards
Eighth graders are encouraged to increase their science literacy, specifically to explore that science is in there grasp, and that it fits into their perspective of ? cool? by encouraging them to pursue their personal interests in a setting that minimizes social pressure.
Motivate Single Student to Achieve Higher
Eighth graders are encouraged to increase their science literacy, by exploring that science is well within their grasp. They investigate optical illusions in a one-on-one setting, 8th graders ask questions about natural phenomenon, biology, systems and anatomy.
Probing into the Unknown
Students gain a better understanding of the properties and chemistry of water and explain the properties of water as a solvent. They then understand the importance of abiotic factors and their effect on biotic factors. Students use scientific techniques collect and organize information in a brief and concise manner.
9th - 12th Science
Endangered Marine Life
Young scholars read journal entries to discover the dangers to marine life and environments. Using the internet, they research an endangered organism or habitat in depth. They list the reasons why they are endangered and write a letter to their Congressman to bring the problem to others attention.
9th - 12th English Language Arts
Endangered Marine Life (Middle School)
Middle schoolers analyze journal entries to discover the dangers to marine life and environments. Using the internet, they research an organism or habitat in depth. They identify the reasons why it is endangered and write a letter to their Congressman or local newspaper to bring the attention to the forefront.
6th - 8th English Language Arts
How Waves Can Affect Erosion.
Students research how waves can affect erosion. They perform experiments to discover how breakwater can affect the amount of erosion that occurs. Students explore with three different types of soil: gravel, sand, clay & silt. Students collect information and report to the class.
7th - 9th Science
Science: Follow the Bouncing Ball
Twelfth graders use motion detectors and graphing calculators to track the motion of a bouncing ball. In pairs, one student drops the ball while the other collects the data. Students compare their calculations with their hypotheses and fit the data using the quadratic equation.
Investigate Likely Tail Colors from Generation II Critters
Middle schoolers investigate the likely tail colors of Generation II critters. They predict the likely tail colors of 10 offspring and present their predictions. They create a chart and graph using Excel and compare it to the class graph.
6th - 8th Science
Investigating CO2 Levels
Young scholars measure the levels of carbon dioxide in various locations around the school. They develop a hypothesis on which location most likely has the greatest concentration of carbon dioxide in the air then they collect the data using a computer probe.
