Geometry project that allows students to create a city with criteria that explores midsegment, parallel lines, midpoints, and determining relationships. Students will need to know how to find the length of a segment. This can be done on paper but the use of Geogebra is recommended. (Geogebra allows students to make adjustments easier while verifying their blueprint)

Students design a stained glass window using regular polygons. They then calculate all of the angles for the polygons and the cost of creating the stained glass window by calculating the total area for the different colors they have chosen for their window.
Overview: You are in charge of designing a stained-glass display to be displayed in a window-frame facing the outside world. Your design can only contain regular polygons and cannot have any gaps or overlaps. You …

Are you a psychic? Or better yet, are your students? Can they work to explain how and why an inanimate object, a cellophane fish, moves and interacts with other matter? This activity, which is a modified activity from Chemistry with Charisma from Terrific Science Press, requires students to develop a procedure to test their ideas as to why a cellophane material interacts as it does. While requiring a "cellophane fish" which can be obtained through numerous sources on …

In this modified Chemistry with Charisma activity from Terrific Science, students construct and carry out a procedure for determining the pressure generated in "potato blaster tube." In addition to requiring foresight and generating approximations, students have a fun time propelling potato plugs at a target. Be forewarned, a fun mess is generated.

This site gives teachers an opportunity to help students to develop biomedical engineering units and submit them to a regional fair at the University of Akron. There is data base of over 150 projects for students who might want to submit their project to this fair, but it is a great resource for students in other states who might want to enter their local Science and Engineering Fair. The name of the fair - BEST Medicine Fair is an acronym for Bridging Engineering, Science and …
