Environmental Recovery Project
Students are grouped in twos and create a mobile structure using Lego sets that can travel the furthest distance after going down a ramp as specified. They make sketches of each initial design and document results after testing on the ramp.

Investigating CO2 Levels
Students 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.

Students observe bacterial growth. They infer how well a disinfectant controls bacterial growth. Students draw conclusions regarding the best way to use disinfectants. They are asked why some cleaning products contain disinfectants. Students discuss the fact that bacteria are present everywhere around them, and that controlling bacteria by using disinfectants helps to prevent the spreading of disease and food spoilage.

Path of a Bouncing Ball
Eighth graders use motion detectors with the TI-83 Graphing Calculators to follow the path of a bouncing ball in terms of its position in the vertical direction. They then use the CBL application on the calculator to select points on the graph to use to create quadratic equations that best fit the path of the ball.

Using Temperature Probes to Investigate Properties of Phase Changes
Seventh graders are introduced to the Vernier Probe Technology through laboratory modules which investigated the physical properties of water and different alcohols. They then use phase transition graphs to interpret and evaluate the boiling point of water while the rate of evaporation was investigated to determine how molecular properties influence physical properties of alcohols.

What Can Students Learn by Using the Robots/Probes in a Classroom
Students use the parts of the robotics provided, assemble the robots (use the robots as cart) in order to achieve the longest distance when is let freely at the top of the ramp with a given angle. They then change the angle, collect the data and make the graph "distance Vs angle"

Walk this way
Middle schoolers begin math labs with a demonstration. They explore the actual pieces of technology and take some time as a group to explore a few lines together. Students are divided into groups of 4, assigning roles and responsibilities to each member of the team.

Understanding Graphs With Motion Detectors
Students discover the relationship between their body movements and graphs of their body movements. They collect data from motion detectors that are connected to an I-book graphing program. Using the generated graphs they tell a story about the movements made by other groups.

High schoolers experience a treasure map on their search of a treasure chest. They follow the path that leads them to the treasure. A robot is utilized to help them in their treasure hunt and to recover their treasure. Each group searches for the same treasure; yet, only one group will find it first.
