Ring Around the Rosie
Young scholars examine the concept of angular momentum and its correlation to mass, velocity, and radius. They listen to a teacher-led lecture, conduct an experiment with rotational inertia, angular momentum, and rotation speed by making variations of spinners and comparing the different spins they produce, and answer discussion questions.

All About Electric Motors
Students study the basic principles of electric motors and explore everyday uses. They build a working model of an electric motor for classroom use, using an inexpensive kit. Then, they work as an "engineering" team to determine the changes they would need to make to the motor to adapt it to power a hairdryer.

Solar Kit Lesson #13 Solarize a Toy
Students work in teams they select a low-power toy, game, or electrical deive to "solarize," or convert to solar power. They determine the operating voltage of their chosen device and design a solar array to provide this level of voltage. Pupils determine a series of conditions under which they test their toy's performance and, if needed, adjust the size of their solar array to provide more current.
