Force & Motion
All around us, things are moving—objects, sounds, air, and water. Investigate how physical forces interact to create these movements and how we can design things to move the way we want them to.
Explore the science of you! How do different parts of your body work? How does your brain figure out what's going on around you? How can you keep your body healthy?
Physicist William Bragg once said, “Light brings us the news of the universe.” How does light work? What does it tell us about space? How do we explore our solar system—and beyond—from here on Earth?
Earth is our home. It’s also a place that’s always changing. Investigate the science of plants, water, wind, and weather—the systems that make our planet a special place to live.
Atoms and molecules are the basic building blocks that make up all the “stuff” in our world. How can we mix these building blocks to make new stuff? Or pull them apart to figure out how stuff works?
Design, build, test, and try again. Engineering is a way of thinking to help us solve problems. Tackle these building challenges to put your engineering mind to work!
