RMSC Delivers: Experiences at Your School OR Virtual Experience
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.
For digital programs, our educators will work with your classroom to determine which platform works best to facilitate this experience.
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.
