    Grades: 2-12
  • Black & White Make Color | STEM Alive

    Students can easily turn a Compact Disc into an excellent spinning platform. By adding the pattern for a Benham’s disc to this set-up, you and your students can explore the interesting effect that happens – the spinning black and white pattern creates an illusion of seeing colors in the spinning disc and reveals an interesting aspect of how our eyes and brain perceive color.

    Grades: 3-12
  • Dangle Angle | STEM Alive

    An inclinometer, for measuring unreachable heights and more! This easily made sighting device can measure the angles of lines of sight. Students will gain hands-on insight into understanding and measuring different angles.

    Grades: 5-12
  • Spectroscope - Colors of Light | STEM Alive

    White light is actually a combination of different colors. This easily built spectroscope allows students to separate the incoming light into its component colors, forming a light spectrum (rainbow). Besides creating interesting color patterns it can be used to identify different sources of light.

    Grades: 3-12
  • Puff Rocket | STEM Alive

    Explore forces and motion with a straw “rocket” and an easily made launcher. This fun and interactive exercise engages students as they learn the basic principles of forces and motion.

    Grades: 2-12
  • The Germinator | STEM Alive

    Create an attractive, reusable, seed germinator that allows students to easily collect data on root and shoot growth. View roots growing, create graphs, do experiments, and enjoy the “magic” of seeing dry seeds change into living plants!

    Grades: 2-7
  • Glove-a-Phone | STEM Alive

    Create a musical instrument in minutes that can be used for a wide range of explorations into the science of sound! Students will discover the connection between vibrations and sounds.

    Grades: 2-8
