Motivation: Hall of Science Real life relevance Inspiration for science fair Manos a Manos contributors Community based learning Alignment with content
Purpose Concretely relate NY Hall of Science exhibitions to content standards and real life Use scientific method to carry out, analyze, and present an experiment. Share understanding of scientific concepts with the community and funders.
Process Flow Chart Lessons & Pre- work Hall of Science Visit Debrief & Post- work Science Fair
Lessons & Pre- work Hall of Science Visit Debrief & Post- work Science Fair scientific method, using scientific equipment, NY content standards (forces & motion, chemical & physical properties, microbes, etc.), expectations at the Hall of Science, science fair instructions.
Lessons & Pre- work Hall of Science Visit Debrief & Post- work Science Fair Pick your 3 favorite exhibits and answer the following questions: 1. How is this exhibit relevant to the content standards we covered in class? 2. What kind of real-world applications does this exhibit have? 3. Think of a few ideas of how this exhibit can inspire your science fair project.
Lessons & Pre- work Hall of Science Visit Debrief & Post- work Science Fair Discuss your response to the 3 questions in a group. Give each other feedback. Pick the best idea for a science fair project (inspired by an exhibit at NY Hall of Science), write a proposal, and submit for approval.
Lessons & Pre- work Hall of Science Visit Debrief & Post- work Science Fair Using the scientific method, select, carry out, and present an experiment at the science fair. (include introduction, testable question, hypothesis, materials, procedures, data/results, conclusion, and demo for ExCr.) Share applications of science in everyday life with the community. Exemplary projects will also be displayed in the hallways after the fair for Manos a Manos.
Forces and Motion (Physics – 8th) NY State Standards Balanced/Unbalanced Forces Displacement Velocity Acceleration Friction Frame of reference Inertia & Gravity Newton’s Laws Lab-Aids Kit
Example Projects for Physics Which surface opposes motion the most? (inspired by Bounce Challenge) Which bridge design is the strongest? (inspired by Climbing Challenge) How does the weight and nose shape of an airplane affect its motion? (inspired by Pitching Challenge)
Guests/Speakers Kirsten Stoner – Hospital for Special Surgery – How forces affect our body (bones)
