mapping magnetic fields
Mapping magnetic fields
  • You should have:
  • 1 large piece of paper
  • 1 cow magnet
  • 2-3 compasses
  • Writing implement

Procedure

  • Place the compass on the middle of the paper and trace around it. Draw a dot somewhere near the magnet and place the center of the compass over the dot.

Mapping magnetic fields

Procedure

  • Place the compass on the middle of the paper and trace around it. Draw a dot somewhere near the magnet and place the center of the compass over the dot.
  • Draw a dot at eh location of the arrow head of the compass needle
  • Move the compass from the paper and draw lines connecting the dots with arrows indicating the direction that the compass points.
  • Remove the compass from the paper and draw lines connecting the dots with arrows indicating the direction that the compass points.
  • Continue steps b-d until the line meets the magnet or edge of the paper
  • Pick another spot near the magnet and repeat the processes.

Uv beads
  • On you paper number 1-5- skipping 2 lines between each.
  • Observe each bag and write down your observations.
  • On the back of your paper – answer these questions:
  • Which bag has the lightest color beads?
  • Which bag has the darkest color beads?
  • Why do you think there is a difference?
  • Looking at the bag with the sun glasses covering them and the regular glasses. What is the difference?

TIMED
  • A Mission to Explore One of the Last Frontiers in Earth’ Atmosphere
  • The TIMED (Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics) mission is studying the influences of the Sun and humans on the least explored and understood region of Earth's atmosphere - the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere/Ionosphere (MLTI).

  • Moon Phases
  • Climate Cycles
  • Let’s make a cloud.

impact crater
Impact crater
  • Look at the photographs of the Moon, how do you think the craters were formed?
  • What do you think are factors that affect the appearance and size of craters and ejecta?
  • What does this “lunar” surface look like before testing?
  • Measure the mass of the first impactor and record it on your Data Chart.
  • Drop impactor #1 from a height of 30 cm.
  • Measure the diameter and depth of the resulting crater. Count the rays, measure, and determine the average length of all the rays.
  • Record the information on the Data Chart and repeat the procedure varying the drop height as instructed on the Data Chart
impact craters
Impact craters
  • What does the data reveal about the relationship between crater size and velocity of impactor?
  • What does the data reveal about the relationship between ejecta (ray) length and velocity of impactor?
  • If the impactor were dropped from 6 meters, would the crater be larger or smaller? How much larger or smaller? (Note: the velocity of the impactor would be 1,084 cm/s)

  • Materials:
  • 4 Oreos
  • 1 plastic spoon
  • 1 paper plate
  • Oreo handout
  • Make the Oreos look like the handout and place them on the paper plate.
