Events

Siemens STEM Day: Buggy Bodies
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will investigate how a specific group of insects move, referred to in our lesson as the focus insects.

Siemens STEM Day: Swarm!
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students work in groups to model swarming behaviors, and analyze the behaviors to develop an understanding of how they increase the chances of survival of a species.

Siemens STEM Day: Just For Kicks
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will compare two forces of energy on the motion, velocity, and direction of an object.

Siemens STEM Day: It's a Secret!
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how sound waves travel through different media by building a sound transmission device.

Siemens STEM Day: Top Design
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity students will examine the relationships between the organisms within an ecosystem and how changes that affect one affect the others.

Siemens STEM Day: Weathering Cubes
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will model the weathering of rocks by shaking sugar cubes in a container.

Siemens STEM Day: As Far As I Can Sea
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will learn the different techniques used to map the ocean, and will practice using those techniques themselves in the classroom.

Siemens STEM Day: Motion in the Ocean
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will model the process of heat transfer by convection in Earth’s oceans.

Siemens STEM Day: Modeling Constraints
Siemens STEM Day

Students will work in small groups to investigate constraints of starting a business. Each group will be assigned a specific constraint. Small groups will then write a linear inequality and graph the inequality on a group capture sheet.

Siemens STEM Day: Run Off Solutions
Siemens STEM Day

Students will learn about the concept of low impact development: practices that use or copy natural processes such as absorption or evaporation to protect water quality.

Siemens STEM Day: Effects of Radiation
Siemens STEM Day

Help students learn that radiation exists all around people both in natural and manmade ways in this activity. Students will use digital and/or print resources to learn about ionizing and non-ionizing radiation along with the benefits/risks associated.

Siemens STEM Day: Cause and Effect on the Land
Siemens STEM Day

In this activity, students will examine how the Earth’s land surface is affected by water in its different forms.
