STUDENT ACTIVITY- The great candle experiment  - In this activity, students cover a lit candle with an inverted jar in a saucer of water. The flame expires and the water rises up in the jar.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Modelling animal cells in 3D - In this activity, students make 3D models of specialised animal cells, imitating what can be seen under high-resolution microscopes.

STUDENT ACTIVITY- Biodegradability experiment - In this activity, students set up an experiment to determine the biodegradability of different substances.

INFO SHEET - Biodegradability - We see the term ‘biodegradable’ on some products that we buy, such as washing powders and shampoo, but what does it actually mean?

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Enzyme action  - In this activity, students investigate the effect that fruit purees (pineapple, kiwifruit, peach) have on the setting of party jellies.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Introduction to DNA - In this activity, students extract and observe DNA from a tomato.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Calculating RMR and daily energy output -  In this activity, students calculate their RMR (resting metabolic rate) and use this to calculate the energy cost of various activities. From these values, an estimate of their average daily energy expenditure can be made.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Fossil correlation - In this activity, students date fossils from one site by matching them to fossils already dated somewhere else. They use real data from Mangahouanga, made famous by paleontologist Joan Wiffen.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Food colouring - In this activity, students use a simple paper chromatography method to separate and identify the components present in commercially available food colouring.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Aerofoils and paper planes -  In this activity, students learn how to make an aerofoil and to make and fly paper planes. In the process, they learn about aerofoil wing shape (found on planes and birds) and experiment with flying paper planes using angle of attack and nose weight.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Fern propagation  - In this activity, students learn how to propagate ferns. All ferns reproduce by means of spores. Some ferns, like the hen and chickens fern, reproduce asexually by means of bulbils.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - Investigating air pollution - In this activity, students investigate exhaust emissions, car use and air quality.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - New Zealand plate boundary models - In this activity, students make and/or observe two 3D moving models of the different tectonic plate boundaries under the North and South Islands representing the North Island subduction zone and the South Island Alpine Fault.

STUDENT ACTIVITY - World of quakes - In this activity, students take on the roles of seismologists and vulcanologists, using maps to look for patterns in the worldwide distribution of earthquakes and volcanoes.
