About the Class

SPARK! (States of Matter)

Fuel (gasoline) and air combine with a spark to generate the energy it requires to move a car. During this workshop, students will explore states of matter (solid, liquid and gas) by creating a reaction car, which will move using its own energy source. Students will then compare their cars’ reactions by measuring the distance traveled. (Allergy alert: Vinegar, citrus acids (lemon or lime juice) and baking soda are used for this experiment)
