Summer SAVY 2016 (Session 3, Day 3) – What’s the Matter
There was a lot of excitement in What’s the Matter this morning! Students began their work learning how to use a triple beam balance. They measured the mass of a number of different solids, recorded their data, and shared their work with the group. As we moved into our liquids lessons, students were challenged to put four cylinders of fluid in order from most to least only to find out that they all contained the same amount! Later, students were introduced to the properties of liquids and conducted a couple of really exciting surface tension experiments. Ask your young scientist how many drops of water he or she was able to fit on the head of a penny and what the milk/food coloring/dish soap experiment was all about! Tomorrow, we will turn our attention to gases as we work with balloons, paper airplanes, and parachutes!
