Lessons are constantly being updated.

Beat of the Heart | Science
Students will compose a rap song about the structure and function of the heart, blood flow, and pulmonary circulation. This lesson integrates science and technology.

Science Adult Learning

Heart Apps | Science
Students will gather information regarding heart rate and blood pressure from technological applications to make recommendations for maintaining a healthy heart. This lesson integrates science and technology.

Science Adult Learning

Bones Joints & Models| Science
Students will design and build a model (with labels) that can demonstrate the movement of an arm throwing or a leg kicking and be able to explain how the model compares to the bones and joints in a human arm or leg. This lesson integrates science and engineering.

Science Adult Learning

Bones & Ratios| Science
Students will compare ratios by measuring the length of femurs, arm span, head height, and head circumference and comparing these measurements to total height. This lesson integrates science and math.

Science Adult Learning

Clydesdales | Engineering
Students will complete a problem solving challenge: how many Clydesdales can a designated area in the Gateway Arch grounds support, given the stable space required and the feeding capacity of a sustainable pasture on the 10 acre site?

Engineering Adult Learning

Hovercrafts | Engineering
Given a limited amount of materials, design, build, and demonstrate a model of a vehicle that can use a force and a cushion of air to move an object the greatest distance.

Science Adult Learning

Eats and Drinks | Engineering
Students will complete a problem solving challenge: given a minimal dimension, design a 3-D model (to scale) that illustrates a table that is able to convert from a dining size to a coffee table size. This lesson integrates engineering, math, and science.

Engineering Adult Learning

Patterns That Pop! | Math
Students will use manipulatives to build a model of a number sequence and write a mathematical equation to describe the pattern. Use technology to capture images of the pattern and communicate results.

Math Adult Learning
