Does yeast breathe? Find out by watching plastic bags filled with yeast, warm water and different amounts of sugar.
Build and test a model of a rainforest canopy walkway. Rainforest researchers must consider materials, transportation, and cost so they don't damage the fragile canopy environment as they study it.
Con la collaborazione di: JASON Foundation for Education
Make a bridge out of a folded piece of paper and two blocks. Test your structure by stacking coins (and other things) on it. How much weight can your bridge support before it crashes?
