Conference & Workshop Materials

  • Beads in a Bottle Density is a characteristic property of matter. In this activity, students apply their understanding of density to explain observations about immiscible liquids and objects suspended in them. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Balancing Chemical Equations This activity focuses on using models to help balance chemical equations and understand the law of conservation of mass. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Coding with First Graders? The Smithsonian Says Yes! This hands-on workshop offers investigations for teaching coding to young children. The activites are adapted from the new Smithsonian Science for the Classroom™ module How Can We Send a Message Using Sound? View »
  • The Composition and Age of Stars Do your students think stars burn? Can they tell the age of a star like our sun? Ignite interest in astrophysics with this easy demonstration. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. 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 »
  • Planning and Designing Investigations using Balanced and Unbalanced Forces How can I demonstrate balanced and unbalanced forces? What is the relationship between inertia, force, and mass? This workshop explores these questions using lessons from Carolina's Building Blocks of Science™ 3D series. View »
  • Workshop: Solve the Mystery of Beads in a Bottle View this Carolina workshop presentation given at the 2018 NSTA national conference in Atlanta, Georgia. View »
  • The Smithsonian Presents Energy in Action How does energy move and change? Answer this question and others while experiencing one of the new modules from the Smithsonian Science for the Classroom™ series. View »
  • Dry Ice Explosion Demonstrate the physical states of carbon dioxide with the help of this video. View »
