The WOWLab is currently being run by Principal Investigator Anila Asghar.

We aim to develop three-dimensional science and math teaching technologies to enable schoolteachers to teach science with the highest levels of student excitement, amazement and amusement, resulting in higher motivation, interest and increased learning.

As our five-year mandate comes to an end, we are at the finals stages of providing Canadian elementary and high school teachers with detailed "blueprints" of how to create novel activities to optimally engage students in science and math classes.

ENJOY! Styrofoam Plate Speaker Polymer Balls Cauldron Bubbles In this activity, students will create their own bouncy balls. Two types of balls will be created, one using latex and the other using cornstarch, borax and white glue. In both of these methods, a polymer (a chain of repeated units) is created and molded into a ball shape. Although both balls look similar, they have different physical properties, which students will observe while testing which type of ball bounces better. Tree of Life
