If I were to have to teach science to high school students (PLZGODNOH) I would be so tempted to throw out at least one boring lesson and perform this experiment...

What's in the Box?

Present students with a box. It's large, it's wooden, it's painted black; it's A Box.

They have to figure out what's inside it. Grade depends on accuracy (not worth much; 15 points max).

They are instructed to use the scientific method. They can't open or damage the box obviously, but they can do DAMN NEAR ANYTHING ELSE to it; weigh it, shake it, place magnets by it, put it close to a Tesla coil, etc.

The only question is: what to put in the box? :)
