Find Newton’s Tournament featured further in this post.

We use heat a lot in our every day conversation. To understand how it helps us accomplish important tasks like cooking delicious pasta dinners, we need to understand heat as a concept of thermal energy transfer. Say hello to Project H.e.a.T, where you will play as a sentient bot to dive into thermal energy transfer up close!

In TURTLES BROS – Predicting The Weather you will assist the turtle brothers in their quest across the sea in a hot air balloon! Predicting the weather using meteorological instruments will be vital to their success! Find TURTLES BROS – Predicting The Weather featured further on in this post.

Dig through the layers of the earth for fossils and learn about the history of the Earth ExcavAge: A Dig to the Past! Students will understand the geologic time scale as they engage in puzzles and use logic to dig deeper underground. 

In Escape your city has been destroyed by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods all caused by plate tectonics!  Let’s escape the disaster and learn how this came to be: Earth’s plates have moved great distances, collided, and spread apart.
