Applied Curriculum for Students

For Supervisors, Teachers, and Students

Underwater ROV

o Grade 4 +

  • Eligible Content - S5.A.1.1.1 Explain how certain questions can be answered through scientific inquiry and/or technological design (e.g., investigate to find out if all clay or foil boats designs react the same when filled with paperclips).
  • Eligible Content - S5.A.1.1.2 Explain how observations and/or experimental results are used to support inferences and claims about an investigation or relationship (e.g., make a claim based on information on a graph).
  • Eligible Content - S5.A.2.2.1 Describe the appropriate use of instruments and scales to accurately measure time, mass, distance, volume, and temperature safely under a variety of conditions (e.g., use a thermometer to observe and compare the interaction of food coloring in water at different temperatures).
  • Eligible Content - S6.A.1.1.1 Explain how certain questions can be answered through scientific inquiry and/or technological design (e.g., consumer product testing, common usage of simple machines, modern inventions).

String Racer

o Grades 4+

  • Eligible Content - S8.C.3.1.1 Describe forces acting on objects (e.g., friction, gravity, balanced versus unbalanced).
  • Eligible Content - S8.C.3.1.2 Distinguish between kinetic and potential energy.
  • Eligible Content - S8.C.3.1.3 Explain that mechanical advantage helps to do work (physics) by either changing a force or changing the direction of the applied force (e.g., simple machines, hydraulic systems).

Bottle Biosphere

o Grades K+


  • Eligible Content - S4.A.1.3.3 Observe and describe the change to objects caused by temperature change or light.
  • Eligible Content - S4.A.1.3.4 Explain what happens to a living organism when its food supply, access to water, shelter, or space is changed (e.g., it might die, migrate, change behavior, eat something else).
  • Eligible Content - S4.B.3.1.2 Describe interactions between living and nonliving components (e.g. plants – water, soil, sunlight, carbon dioxide, temperature; animals – food, water, shelter, oxygen, temperature) of a local ecosystem.
  • Eligible Content - S8.A.1.1.3 Use evidence, such as observations or experimental results, to support inferences about a relationship.
  • Eligible Content - S8.A.1.3.3 Examine systems changing over time, identifying the possible variables causing this change, and drawing inferences about how these variables affect this change.
  • Eligible Content - S8.A.2.1.6 Identify a design flaw in a simple technological system and devise possible working solutions
