Curriculum: Science and Practical Applications
Bound to Matter
Using molecular modeling kits, the students will explore the atomic and molecular worlds. They learn how atoms and molecules bound and organize to form matter in different phases. The students will understand principles of physics (thermodynamics) and chemistry (chemical reaction) from dissolving chalk in vinegar.
In this activity the students will learn about the health impacts of eating habits.
Application of Physics
This is a science session that will introduce physical forces applied to an object in motion. This session will facilitate reflections on gravity and aerodynamics. Students will gain engineering experience while learning principles of physics and working with the scientific processes of experimentation and trial and error.
In this session the students will use primary material to purify water. They will compare the purification efficiency of different setups.
