Teachers, now you can ramp it up in the classroom! These MythBusting activities follow the STEM initiatives for your curriculum.
You don't need a high-tech workroom to be a MythBuster. These hands-on experiments let you put myths to the test in the classroom, at camp, at home... just about anywhere.
Explore science the Mythbusters way! Now you can bring their signature mix of the scientific method, gleeful curiosity and elbow-grease ingenuity to your classroom with these experiment-based lessons and some easy-to-find materials!
This guide contains 10 hands-on, teacher-approved activities related to myths explored in Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition. Each activity includes nearly everything you need to get started: a question to investigate, the stuff you’ll need, a “how-to” guide and supplementary information about the science behind the activities. Use the Blueprint attached to each activity to record findings, then share your results online.
The Mythbusters’ Method starts here...
Wonder – What crazy questions can we ask?
Research – What is already known about those questions?
Guess – What do you think the answers are?
Test – Design experiments to answer the questions.
Discover – Test and test again…and break some stuff too.
Results – What did your experiments tell you?
Share – Shout it from the rooftops! Make a TV show about it!
Note to Teachers:
Each activity lists Tips for Teachers and the National Science Education Standards in addresses, making it easier to tie the experience to your classroom curricula.
