The Engineering Students performed a Guided lab investigation introducing them to acceleration/deceleration kinematic equations of motion in 1-dimension using toy cars from my son's toy box, meter sticks, protractors, cell phones, and shower board. This lab is a contributor to a culminating project on Roller Coasters. Students created their "Roller Coaster Engineering Company Names": Fr9day, The Classics, Reliks, and TBD along with their motto and logo. Today, working in their "companies" of 4, students were each given a role to play as they contributed: Project Manager (who coordinated all the efforts as well as took photos and video), Personal Assistant (who recorded all data for the team/company), Foreman 1 (in charge of all measurements taken in the acceleration phase) and Foreman 2 (in charge of all measurements taken in the deceleration phase).

In this activity, students worked in groups of 3-4, each group was assigned a different joint (e.g. wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle). Using sharpie on masking tape, students labelled the synergistic and antagonistic muscles that allowed for various movements in the joint and extend the tape all the way from origin to insertion. Students were given 20 minutes to complete the taping task. Students used phones, computers, and textbooks as resources to assist. Students then had 5 minutes to prepare a presentation in which they had to tell what muscles were present, what bones were included in the origin and insertion of each muscle, and exactly what movement (e.g. abduction, adduction, elevation, depression, eversion, inversion, pronation, supination) was accomplished when the muscle contracted. While this activity was completed in a classroom setting, it could also be translated to an online setting in which students taped themselves or a partner from home (e.g. roommate, friend, sibling). Then they could either submit pictures or a Flip Grid video explanation. Here is our photo from our in class lab in action. This activity was a great team builder! Show us your students' work and discuss with us how your process went!

In this lab, students boil red cabbage to extract out the dye from it. This dye can be used as an acid/base indicator, as it turns pink in acidic solutions, green in neutral solutions, and blue in basic solutions. Students used household vinegar and bleach as standard acid and base to obtain a key for solutions at different pH ranges. If the class is advanced enough, students could be given the concentration of acid and base in both vinegar and bleach in order to calculate a pH that then relates to the color of indicator. They then looked through household items to see how acidic or basic they are too. They also can dip pieces of paper into the solution to create home-made pH indicator strips. This is a great lab that can be done in the classroom or at home. Students can submit pictures or a Flip Grid video showing the results of all of their acid/base testing. Lets see YOUR flip grids or pictures!
This Cabbage is to DYE for!  content media

Students performed the Chemistry Freezing Point Depression Lab, also known as the Ice Cream Lab using Everyday Materials: French Vanilla Coffee Creamer, Ice, Table Salt, Thermometers, and two sizes of Zip Lock Baggies. How tasty was your ice-cream? Share your process with us!

Students measured the amount of energy produced by burning food products by creating a Calorimeter out of Everyday Materials: Soda Can, Cork, Paperclip, Water, and Tongs! They then compared their calculations to those present on the side of the containers. We want to know your results, and see photos of your fun experiments!

From Concept 8- Force And Energy Students experienced the testing cycle experienced by REAL RnD Device Engineers. 1)They researched how new devices are made. 2) Then they created and calibrated rubber band balances. 3) They tested, rejected, and perfected their balances. 4) They used their rubber band balances to measure objects. 5) They engineered new measurement devices for fluids of their own creativity. Share with us your students in action as RnD Device Engineers!
