Get Connected with Ohm's Law
Ideal for your electricity unit, especially with middle schoolers, this lesson gets engineers using multimeters in electrical circuits to explore the relationships among voltage, current, and resistance. Older learners may even plot data...
5th - 12th Science CCSS: Designed
Using a cut-out template of a whirligig, emerging engineers experiment with flight behavior. After you teach them the concepts of force, air resistance, and lift, they discuss what variables on the whirligigs might be changed in order to...

The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this activity on the path of least resistance, or rather, on conductors and insulators. Using two types of modeling dough, one that conducts and one that insulates, young electrical engineers construct...

What Causes Antibiotic Resistance?
There are ten times more bacteria cells than human cells in the average person, and while many of them are helpful, there are some that can be deadly. This video explores the on-going battle between people and these microscopic...
