How Can We Produce a Bunch of Fog for a Scary Scene? (vBeta)
COMING SOON - ANTICIPATED RELEASE DATE IN SPRING 2018
In this high school physical sciences unit on the particulate nature of matter and kinetic molecular theory, students explore the phenomenon of fog with an end goal of designing and building an affordable and safe fog machine. The goal motivates students to figure out more about natural fog through a series of investigations related to weather data and properties of air and water. Their discoveries help them develop particle-level concepts related to temperature, thermal energy, and pressure. These understandings help students' explain how natural and artificial fog is formed and these explanations inform their engineering designs.
