RMSC DELIVERS: Energy

RMSC DELIVERS: Energy

Driving a car, riding a bike, heating your house, and even sitting still, we use energy. Light, electricity, heat, even sound are all energies. The question is: “What is energy?” Demonstrators guide students in exploring these different forms of energy, how they connect, and how they are used.

**Capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.

 

Subjects: Physical Sciences
Program Type: RMSC Delivers: Experiences at Your Site
NYS Standards:

  • 1-PS4-1. Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.

  • 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object

  • 3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

  • 4-PS3-1. Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

  • 4-PS3-2. Make observations to provide evidence that energy is conserved as it is transferred and/or converted from one form to another.

  • 4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties

  • MS-PS2-3. Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces

  • MS-PS2-5. Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.

  • MS-PS3-4. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the temperature of the sample of matter.

  • MS-PS3-5. Construct, use, and present an argument to support the claim that when work is done on or by a system, the energy of the system changes as energy is transferred to or from the system.

  • MS-PS3-6. Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred by electric currents.
