(NEW) RMSC DELIVERS: Solids, Liquids and Gases - Virtual

This is our coolest outreach yet. Really, it is! Your class will thrill at the use of Liquid Nitrogen (-196° C), as they learn how temperature affects energy and changes matter from solid to liquid to gas. Watch your students’ amazement turn to understanding as they begin to explore and predict the outcome of experiments with objects exposed to extreme temperature.

Format:
RMSC sends Zoom link to the teacher. The teacher co-hosts Zoom and manages the participants.

Requirements:
Computer or Smart Device to connect to internet, Zoom, webcam & microphone; Projector and external speakers needed in the classroom.

Subjects: Physical Sciences
Program Type: Virtual Experiences
NYS Standards:

  • K-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to test the claim that different kinds of matter exist as either solid or liquid, depending on temperature.

  • K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

  • 2-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

  • 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

  • 5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

  • 5-PS1-2. Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances the total amount of matter is conserved.

  • 5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

  • MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and phase (state) of a substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

  • MS-PS1-8. Plan and conduct an investigation to demonstrate that mixtures are combinations of substances.
