Heat and Temperature



Share with Your Friends


This advanced presentation illustrates core ideas about heat energy and transfer. Through live demonstrations, students learn the differences between the three main mechanisms of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. Students explore the definitions of heat and temperature, discover that all elements have specific melting and boiling points, find out that light or even water can incinerate a piece of paper, and learn ways to differentiate between two cryogenic liquids. A 45-minute introductory version is available for multi-grade reservations.
