Are you ready to embark on an exciting journey into the world of matter? Matter Matters is a dynamic and interactive class that will ignite your curiosity about the things that surround us everywhere, every day. In this class, you'll discover that everything from the air you breathe to the food you eat is essentially composed of just three ingredients. Using critical and creative thinking skills, you will participate in hands-on experiments, make observations and learn how to communicate your discoveries just like a scientist. We'll delve into the periodic table and uncover the secrets it holds! We will model the atom, make FLARP and Obleck and perform a number of other fascinating experiments. If you're someone who constantly wonders about the universe and how it works, this is the perfect class for you!
