States of Matter - CHemistry Concoctions

Explore the states of matter in a creative lab setting. Presentation allows students to differentiate between solids, liquids and gases. Students make polymer “Phlubber”. Experimentation culminates in the production of a particularly tasty crystallized concoction, better known as ice cream. This program has a supplemental fee. Visit to your site is $360 for the first session and $320 for each additional. A visit to the Science Center with this program is $15 per student.

NGSS Learning Standards: P-PS1-1; K-PS1-1; 2-PS1-1, 2-PS1-4; 5-PS1-1, 5-PS1-3, 5-PS1-4; MS-PS1-1, MS-PS1-4, MS-PS1-8, MS-PS1-2, MS-PS1-6

 

Chemistry Detective

Students perform qualitative tests on common household powders, and on a “mystery” powder. They use analytical thinking and deductive reasoning to solve the identity of the unknown substance. Concrete ideas about atoms and molecules are formulated as students participate in this challenging program.

NGSS Learning Standards: 5-PS1-1, 5-PS1-2, 5-PS1-3, 5-PS1-4; MS-PS1-1, MS-PS1-4, MS-PS1-8, MS-PS1-2, MS-PS1-5

 

Magical Molecules

Experience the magic of combining molecules to create new substances. Participants make glue using household materials. When they add additional substances, something totally different is created! All materials are included.

Ice Cream Science

In a lab setting participants perform hands-on experiments that explore the molecular nature of matter. Experimentation culminates in the production of a particularly tasty crystallized concoction, better known as ice cream. A yummy experience! (Out programs must provide a freezer.)
