We're going to learn about temperature, heat energy, atoms, matter, phase changes, and more in our unit on Thermodynamics as we build steam boats, fire-water balloons, hero engines, thermostats, Stirling engines, and more!
One of the best things you can do with this unit is to take notes in a journal as you go.
Snap photos of yourself doing the actual experiment and paste them in alongside your drawing of your experimental setup. This is the same way scientists document their own findings, and it's a lot of fun to look back at the splattered pages later on and see how far you've come. I always jot down my questions that didn't get answered with the experiment across the top of the page so I can research it more later. Are you ready to get started?
