After you complete your research, you can create a butterfly handbook or you can challenge others with a board game of questions and answers.
Behavior of Gases
Grades: 3 - 9
This project gives you a chance to learn about the gas laws of chemistry and physics. You will also learn about some applications of these relationships among volume, pressure, and temperature. You will see virtual examples and demonstrations showing how these laws influence activities in everyday life. As an end product, you will have the opportunity to explore the measurement of the pressure of a gas by carrying out several investigations of your own, or you can choose to create a comic book complete with plot, heroes, villains, humor, etc., explaining the gas laws in the course of telling a story.
City of the Future
Grades: 6 - 9
Complete this project to learn how cities and societies change. You will choose a city and study its past, so that you can compare this to its present. While researching, keep a notebook about the changes that have taken place in this city over the past 100 years. Find out how such things as transportation, architecture, and the needs of people have changed. Then imagine what this city might become in the future. You can paint or draw your vision, build a three-dimensional model, or design a city with a computer. You also have the option of entering a future city engineering competition.
Covid-19: A Global Pandemic
Grades: 9 - 12
In the year 2020, life as we know it has come to a standstill around the world. Schools and businesses have shut their doors, people have to stand in line to enter the grocery store and wear masks if within six feet of each other. Even toilet paper is a rare commodity. Through this project, you will consider the many ways that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected your community and society as a whole. Consider public health, employment, government, travel, and how we celebrate our life events.
