Learning Made Fun - Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eight graders will work individually and in teams through a series of hands-on STEM-based activities. All activities are aligned with National Science Teacher Association academic standards. Sponsored By: Northwest Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub

Activities include:

Egg Drop Vehicle Construction

Students will design and build a vehicle that safely carries an egg from a vertical drop of 10 feet – or more.

T-Bot II Hydraulic Arm

Students will explore lesson in the Cartesian coordinate system, mechanical advantage, robotics, hydraulics, simple machines, mechanics, and teamwork. Students will build a robotic arm and develop teamwork to operate the hydraulic arm’s controls.

Mousetrap Vehicle Construction

Students will experience simple machines and other physics principles through the design and construction of a vehicle powered only by an ordinary mousetrap. They will determine starting friction of the vehicle using pulley setups.

EZ Build Dragsters

Students will explore concepts in force, motion, speed, friction, and acceleration as they build and race CO2 powered dragsters.

LabQuest Activities

Students will explore science concepts using Vernier laboratory sensors. Students will explore concepts in temperature, motion, force, conductivity, gas pressure, light, pH, and voltage.
