For students who are physically challenged, experiential learning may be difficult as there are not enough products commercially available that are adapted to their learning needs. The apparatus in this experiment have been specially customised to their level of motor skills. These will enhance the learning experience of the students as they can grasp scientific concepts more easily through hands-on experiential learning, having fun in the process.

In this lesson, students will explore the connection between reforestation and deforestation and greenhouse gases. They’ll do this by collecting data about local trees and analyzing and interpreting data about deforestation and reforestation, which will serve as the example in this lesson of one set of activities that can affect levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Students will apply these ideas to the construction of a written argument that helps answer the driving question: What happens to carbon dioxide levels in our local community when trees are removed or added?

Lesson focuses on unique challenges in transportation engineering, such as devising a method for skiers or hikers to get to the top of a mountain. Students work in teams to design a "chair lift" out of everyday items that can transport a ping pong ball in a chair of their own design from the bottom of a "valley" to the top of a "mountain" along a clothes line or wire without the ball falling out. Students design their chairlift and chair on paper, execute their design, test it, reflect on the challenge, and share their experiences with the class...

In this lesson, students use data related to distances between objects in the solar system to create their own scale model to represent these distances and better understand relationships of objects in the solar system and answer the driving question: How do you study a system that won’t fit in the classroom?
