The science of rongoā — TEACHING RESOURCE

This article tells the story of Chris Ryan, a high school student who investigated the medicinal properties of kawakawa. Chris initially found there was no scientific evidence to support kawakawa as an antibacterial or antiviral agent. He found it odd that science did not back up the Māori practice of using kawakawa in rongoā – their traditional healing system.

In this activity, students use a physical model to investigate the effectiveness of different properties for base isolators. Science Fair, Investigations, Physics, Students, Base, Teaching, Activities, Model, Physique

Best base isolator

In this activity, students use a physical model to investigate the effectiveness of different properties for base isolators.

In this activity, students make a water bottle rocket. They investigate the variables that affect the height and distance travelled by the rocket.

Water bottle rockets

In this activity, students make a water bottle rocket. They investigate the variables that affect the height and distance travelled by the rocket.

In this activity, students design and build a balloon-powered car to better understand the science ideas related to rocket propulsion. They use ideas of mass and force to work out ways to improve the distance travelled by their car.

Balloon car challenge

In this activity, students design and build a balloon-powered car to better understand the science ideas related to rocket propulsion. They use ideas of mass and force to work out ways to improve the distance travelled by their car.

Effervescent canister rockets - In this activity, students make a film canister rocket using baking soda and vinegar. They develop their understanding of rocket propulsion and investigate the amount of vinegar that will make the rocket go the highest.

Biodegradability experiment

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

Investigating air pollution - In this activity, students investigate exhaust emissions, class car use and air quality. Learning Resources, Teaching Tools, Science Activities, Science Ideas, Sixth Grade Science, Ap Environmental Science, Class Notes, Mentor Texts, Air Pollution

Investigating air pollution

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

Digestion Chemistry - Food’s journey through the digestive system Food’s macronutrients undergo chemical breakdown as they move through the digestive system. Learn more about the digestion process and its hormonal control.

Enzyme action

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

Strength of sand and cement mixes - In this activity, students mix different combinations of sand and cement with water. Small tiles of these combinations will be fashioned, left aside to cure and then tested for bending or flexural strength.
