In this activity students use simple materials to make model sailboats which must stay upright and sail straight in a testing tank. The activity introduces the terms sail, stability, leeway, resistance, floating, displacement, propulsion, steering, and keel. Sailboat hulls are designed to pursue a straight-ahead course with as little disturbance of the water as possible. At the same time the boat ... Full description.

In this activity, the process of finding the epicenter of an earthquake with a travel time graph is simulated. During the course of this activity students will model how earthquake waves travel through the Earth at different speeds, construct and utilize a graph to characterize the relationship between distance and time of travel of seismic waves (a travel time-curve), and use the constructed time-travel ...
