Make some molecules move, chill, and change with these at-home experiments.
These easy at-home activities are a great way to play with molecules. Some string and cans of different sizes can be made into instruments that send vibrations of different speeds through the air. Everyone knows vinegar and baking soda make a great volcano, but it also causes a temperature change. While vinegar can also draw solid proteins out of liquid whole milk, making “milk plastic.”
From TPT’s Hands-On Science: Physical Changes and Atmosphere episodes hosted by David Gillette featuring demonstrators Eddie Chamberlain, Michael Lewandowski, Mindy Mallinger, Jeffrey Payne and Bridgette Shannon.
