Properties of Matter

Sponsored by Lockheed Martin

Solid, Liquid, Gas, or Plasma? In January, families tested out the properties of matter with a series of experiments and hand-on activities. This included creating Newtonian fluid to challenge the states of matter, as well as exploring the various elements that make up the world around us through interactive demonstrations. Essence of Motion offered Family Zumba lessons for guests to participate in and Oil and Cotton taught families how to sketch in the exhibit halls. There was something for everyone and the discovery continues, so plan to join us the second Saturday of each month for Discovery Days!
