Conference & Workshop Materials

  • Introduction to Wisconsin Fast Plants® Learn how to plant and teach with Fast Plants®. Ideal for all grade levels, they are easily used to explore many scientific concepts. View »
  • Engineer Physical Science Excitement with a Carolina STEM Challenge® Rockets zoom and race cars zip. Experience how Carolina makes it easy to incorporate STEM into chemistry and physical science. View »
  • Strawberry Milkshakes: DNA and Lactose Intolerance In this workshop, learn how to introduce students to molecular biology through age-appropriate, hands-on activities designed to make challenging abstract concepts (including DNA, genes, and enzymes) more concrete—and to make biology fun. View »
  • They Come in Pairs: Addressing Student Misconceptions About Chromosomes What if meiosis and chromosomes were as easy to understand as folding laundry? This workshop shows how ChromoSock® specialty socks can address student misconceptions. View »
  • Build a Bot with Cubelets®, Robot Blocks Give your students an engineering design challenge with Cubelets®, Robot Blocks. Develop a series of tasks that a robot can perform, then let students engineer and test the robots. View »
  • Modeling Energy in a System You experience energy, force, and motion every second of your day. In this activity, modified from the STCMS™ unit Energy, Forces, and Motion, you create a model to explain how energy is involved in moving a pendulum. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Force Awakens Magnetism is an example of a non-contact force that occurs when objects are not touching. In this activity, students investigate how magnets create a force field that can attract and repel objects. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Making Algae Beads In this activity students create spheres of green algae for use in experiments that explore the metabolic processes of plants. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Disorder Detectives In this activity, students take on the role of a cytogeneticist. They are given a case study and a set of patient chromosome decals that they arrange into a completed karyotype. View »
  • Strawberry DNA Extraction Introduce students to DNA with this activity. A discussion of how this DNA extraction procedure works might also touch on the plant cell wall, the cell membrane, and DNA's lack of solubility in ethanol. Includes materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
