The Magic of Matter

by  Roper Mountain Science Center

Program image

We invite you to watch a new magic show come to life as our scientists explore the magic of matter. Students will join in the show as our scientists look for new ways to explore how the addition and removal of heat energy affect the states of matter.

Virtual field trips at Roper Mountain Science
Center are available to book on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the school year.

Program Details

Format

We begin by reviewing that all solids, liquids, and gasses all take up space and have mass. The students are introduced to the Matter Dance of the particles within solids, liquids, and gasses. Professors Roper and Mountain share an experiment to show that all matter, even, gas has mass and takes up space. Next, the professors share an experiment with liquid nitrogen and the students analyze what is happening to the matter within the balloon. Finally, students are asked to help come up with an experiment for the professors to do and make a hypothesis about what will happen.

Objectives

By the end of the program, the students will know the different states of matter and how heat can affect them.
They will explore the processes of matter changing states due to losing or gaining heat (thermal) energy. They will understand that gas is matter because it takes up space and has mass.
