Science Friday partners with educators and scientists to create free STEM activities, lessons, and resources for all learners.
Capture The Iridescence Of Camouflaging Cephalopod Skin
Explore the deep, color-changing iridophore and leucophore layers of cephalopod skin to see they use light to camouflage themselves.
Dinosaur Poop 101: Fossil Fecal Forensics
Fossilized feces, known as coprolites, are helping paleontologists shed new light on the lifestyles and habits of dinosaurs that fossil bones can’t show.
Hungry Hungry Hermetia
Food waste is a real problem in the world today. Can you design an economic and environmental solution—with fly larvae?
How Do Scientists Know What Dinosaurs Looked Like?
Put yourselves in the shoes of a paleontologist and paleoartist as you try to recreate what dinosaurs looked like using the same methods as the experts.
Build A Groundwater Model
Make an affordable aquifer model for a lab experiment about groundwater pollution.
ROVs: The Swiss Army Knife Of The Ocean
These versatile machines keep deep sea explorers above water where it’s safer, but is operating an ROV really just like operating a big remote control car?
Scale Solar System Orbits—And Satellites!
Use planetary orbits and scale ratios to plan flight paths to other planets.
Investigate different types of volcanic eruptions and linear equations to see if you, a car, Usain Bolt, or a tortoise could survive by simply running away.
Study gastropod shells to understand the evolutionary trade-off between the costs and benefits of building a shell for protection in this resource from Shape of Life
A New Beak Evolution Lab!
This evolution simulation goes further by modeling reproductive success while giving young engineers an opportunity to flex their skills.
