Science Brought to Life in the Classroom

Have you ever eaten a crunchy marshmallow?  Second graders at Avonworth Primary have thanks to a special guest who brought science to life right before their eyes.  Mr. Eastwood's class welcomed scientist and Avonworth School Board Member, Mr. John Brandt, to help with their lesson on changes in matter.  

Mr. Brandt demonstrated for students how matter can only occupy one space and that gases, even though not typically visible to the eye, can exert force and move solid objects around them!  Students were amazed when Mr. Brandt threw liquid nitrogen at the wall in the building, and it immediately became a gas. The highlight for many students was getting to enjoy a liquid nitrogen-chilled marshmallow that was both cold and crunchy!

Thank you Mr. Brandt for taking the time to bring science to life with our 2nd-grade students at APC.
