Our team has developed a series of downloadable activities, with the guidance of our participating scientists and engineers. They're designed to give kids fun ways to experiment with scientific concepts related to the 3 Scientific Topics for this past year’s Kids’ Science Challenge. They may also be adapted for use in science fair projects. For activity downloads and more information about adapting the KSC experience to a local science fair, check out our Activities page.
In collaboration with WVIZ/PBS ideastream we provide lesson plans for K-12 classroom use for each of the Scientific Fields. The lesson plans are aligned to National Science Education Standards. They are free and available at: www.pulseplanet.com/educatorresources, but you must register to access them.
