About the Class

Vroom! States of Matter in Action

Race cars are states of matter in action. It takes solids, liquids and gas working in harmony to get a race car moving. During this workshop, students will explore all three states of matter by creating a car that moves through reaction power. The object of the activity is to understand which team’s car traveled furthest and how the states of matter impacted that result.

Allergy alert: Vinegar, citrus acids and baking soda
are used for experiment.
