This activity has students create a Cartesian diver, which will act in some ways like a submarine. Students will adjust the amount of air and water in an inverted test tube (the "diver") so that it at first barely floats in a water-filled bottle. Then, they will squeeze the closed bottle to create higher water pressure, causing the diver to sink. Releasing the bottle allows the diver to float again. ... Full description.

In this activity, students construct a scale model of the solar system using a tape measure or a very long roll of paper. A calculation tool is provided to determine the correct scaled distances and planet sizes. A brief discussion of the concept of the vast distances of space is included, along with links to other solar system resources. Full description.
