The SciGirls have a fun, hands-on summer engineering project for your kids – this activity teaches them how to design a parachute to give a toy figure a safe landing! http://to.pbs.org/2a5Gf8S
<p>You can design a parachute to give a toy figure a safe landing with this <em>SciGirls</em> engineering activity. Skydivers rely on parachutes to slow them down as they fall from frightening heights. Parachutes catch air and create drag, a force that works against gravity. Parachutes are usually large and made of lightweight materials, so they create the most drag possible without adding a lot of weight.</p>

Examine the sugar content of drinks with your kids, then consider some healthier options! Video from WSKG Public TV & Radio’s “Move It!” Collection. http://to.pbs.org/2a48xhd
<p> In this video, Mackenzie teams up with Molly Morgan, a registered dietician, Tim, and Derek, Binghamton Senators hockey players, to show viewers the amount of added sugar in some of the most popular beverages. Tim and Derek compete against each other to guess how much sugar they think is in different beverages such as Gatorade, Coca Cola, and a Monster Energy Drink. Finally, the group discussed how often the drinks should be consumed.</p>

Summer science fun with the SciGirls! In this activity, kids learn how to build a device to measure how fast the wind is blowing. http://to.pbs.org/29Kikq9
<p>Trying building a device to measure how fast the wind is blowing in this SciGirls engineering activity. You may have heard a weather reporter warn, "Wind gusts are up to 30 mph!" Scientists measure wind speed using a weather instrument called an anemometer, which relies on cups attached to freely rotating arms to catch the wind and make the arms spin. The device then records the number of revolutions in a given time period and translates this ...
