LAB SCHEDULE:
Thermal Energy – Wednesday, September 15
Students are introduced to energy and how thermal energy is measured and analyzed as they practice the proper use of scientific tools.

Fire Safety – Wednesday, September 22
Students review how to stay safe in flammable situations as the explore chemical reactions required to extinguish a fire and learn how to use a fire extinguisher.

Heat Transfer – Wednesday, September 29
This week, we learn how heat energy can be transferred to other objects as we create mood pendants.

Thermal Reactions – Wednesday, October 6
Students conduct endothermic and exothermic chemical reactions, and learn about different everyday uses for them.

Insulation – Wednesday, October 20
Kids test the effectiveness of different methods of trapping heat, explore which materials are the best insulators and investigate how animals use insulation based on their environment.

Greenhouse Effect – Wednesday, October 27
Students examine how the atmosphere uses thermal energy and what that means for life on Earth and other planets.

The Sun – Wednesday, November 3
Students learn how the sun and other stars produce light and thermal energy and conduct experiments using this energy.

Microwaves – Wednesday, November 10
We investigate further into the electromagnetic spectrum as we learn about microwaves and understand how they heat materials and food.

Ice – Wednesday, November 17
Today, we discuss cold temperatures and how it relates to thermal energy by experimenting with melting temperatures.

Fire Proofing – Wednesday, December 1
Students learn about materials that are flame retardant and how to minimize or prevent fires by fire proofing areas.

Pyrotechnics – Wednesday, December 8
We study fireworks and other forms of pyrotechnics to understand where the different colors come from and the physics behind different shapes.

Calorimetry – Wednesday, December 15
Students conduct a calorimetry experiment to learn why food gives us energy by literally burning calories.
