Make Your Own Temperature Scale

This experiment from Teach Engineering is a hands-on activity that allows students to make their own temperature scale before using that scale to measure temperatures in different places.

The Major Scale

The online lessons begin with an explanation of the music staff, clefs, and ledger lines so students get a solid foundation.

The Large Hadron Collider ATLAS Experiment

The Large Hadron Collider ATLAS Experiment The Large Hadron Collider is a particle accelerator and collider located at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. Although this particular site presents an engaging view, complete with sound effects, of the colossal project, it is more a demonstration of the VR

Cylinders and Scale

Using a film canister and paper products, explore the relationship of increasing length, area and volume of cylinders. Students need to see the patterns of scaled growth in different shapes before they can understand the universality of scaling patterns.
