The Crow Creativity Activity

The Kids’ Science Challenge continues to bring creative thinking to kids nationwide.  Check out these imaginative kids in Virginia Beach, VA.  Their teacher, Pam Northam, modified the Crow Creativity Activity by using materials found in their science lab such as the Erlenmeyer flask instead of a clear tube, and attached candy to a loop of tape instead of a basket (since the neck was too small). Students were given the opportunity to chose everyday objects to use, and no instruction other than to get the candy out without lifting the flask. You can see from the photos what a great time they had with this activity.  They also watched the video clip research with the actual crows, and we did some comparative anatomy with human and bird brains.  What are you doing with your students to learn more about the KSC topics?

A KSC Story – From Africa!

KSC Team

Posted from KL in Tunis:

Tell us how you utilized KSC in action!: Wow this was fun! My younger brother, Jack, and I are living in Africa so we don’t normally join many contests except for ones we find online. My 5th grade teacher showed my class the site in January. My project was BioInspired about how the bull frog’s expandable cheek molecules could be looked at and transformed into better purses and wallets. My brother had a hovering magnetic board idea for Sports on Mars. This was really fun and I can’t wait ’till next year!
