In this electrical circuit worksheet, students answer a series of 24 open-ended questions about electromagnetism and electromagnetic induction. This worksheet is printable and the answers are revealed online.
Sixth graders discuss how simple machines overcome friction. In this simple machine lesson, 6th graders review the parts of a plane and how they make up for gravity and friction. They roll different objects down an inclined board predicting which will be affected most by friction. 
Eighth graders build a structure that is able to withstand a simulated earthquake. They research earthquakes, earthquake measurement, and society's preparation for and reaction to them. Pupils build models and present them to the class, along with their research.
In this electrical circuit worksheet, students answer a series of 19 questions by analyzing schematics dealing with the transformers. Students will determine the amount of impedance to various scenarios.
High schoolers explore how compass and Gauss meter detect a magnetic field. In this physics lesson, students build their own Gauss meter and sensor based on given procedure. They cite real world applications of magnetism.
Students participate in an experiment to discover the properties of lift. They work together to complete calculations and collect data. They share their results with the class.
In this physics worksheet, students complete 17 short answer questions about rectifier circuits. They use the test equipment to check their answers.
Students examine the different types of electric motors including their history and classification.  In this motor lesson students complete several experiments with different motors.
In this physics 240:18 worksheet, students find the angular velocity and position in the case presented. Students decided where forces should be applied to balance a system.
Students create their own model of a nail clipper. They practice using engineering design and model building. They also identify different kinds of small levers.
Students investigate different types of simple machines. They identify simple machines as part of daily life. They build a simple machine.
Students build and test structures that can best withstand earthquakes. They create their structures from playdough, cornstarch, grape-nuts and popsicle sticks and place their structures on a "shake table."
Students 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.
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.
Students apply information regarding simple machines along with the math concept "ratios." The teacher introduces the concept that technology is the application of scientific knowledge and mathematics concepts to solve a problem. This is repeated with the wheel and axle.
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.
Physical science or technology classes will be invigorated by this challenge: to convert a toy, game, or other device to run on solar power. In doing so, they will design the appropriate solar arrays. This is an A+ activity, complete with background information, teaching notes, and student instructions.
Eighth graders comprehend Newton's Laws of Motion and to use the scientific method in rocketry sub-unit. They work through the scientific method. Students illustrate how science and Newton's Laws can be used in everyday situations and movement.
Students Experimentally determine the smallest deflection to load ratio (¿¿y/P) for a given length of four different beam designs of balsa wood. They analyze the results for different beam designs and relate the equation that describes how deflection varies with the geometry of the beam.
Students identify the basic components of male and female Roman costume, both for children and adults and also, the major social ranks of Imperial Rome and the dress reserved for each gender and rank. They also identify some of the activities considered appropriate for each gender and rank and the appropriate Latin names for clothing and accessories.
