What's the Matter?

Students on the Delta team are in the middle of their chemistry unit. Specifically, they are currently learning about the five states of matter: Bose-Einstein condensates, solids, liquids, gases and plasma. Last week, the students read several different articles and took notes in preparation for a project where they model the states of matter. This work specifically looked at how particles move as thermal energy is added or removed from a pure substance. This week, they are busy making skits and cartoons that show this particle motion in preparation for a performance/presentation on Friday.
