Using super-cold liquid nitrogen, common household items and hands-on experimentation, your students learn how and why things change from solid to liquid to gas and the properties of these states of matter. We will focus on the unusual characteristics of water using a hands-on challenge activity with your students, use science process skills to observe and ask questions using bubbles and a solid with some unusual characteristics, and explore with components of air in solid, liquid and gaseous states.

Please note: This program has been created for individual classroom interaction. Program maximum is 30 students per session.

Program Details


1. Quick introduction of states of matter (appropriate to the grade level content)
2. Students use observation, questioning and hypothesizing skills to determine why bubbles are floating in box filled with carbon dioxide.
3. Students are challenged to determine how many drops of water will fit on the head of a penny (this portion is interactive-materials will arrive one week prior to the program)
4. Liquid nitrogen demonstration-focusing primarily on how air can easily change states.

Please note: This program has been created for individual classroom interaction. Program maximum is 30 students per session.


The participants will use process skills (observation, questioning,hypothesizing and predicting)to deepen their understanding of states of matter.

The participants will actively explore the unusual characteristics of water-surface tension and natural shapes of water.

The participants will identify examples of states of matter and properties of matter appropriate to their grade level.

The participants will compare components of air in various states-as a solid, a liquid and a gas.
