This advanced program 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, show that light (or even water!) can incinerate a piece of paper, and learn ways to differentiate between two cryogenic liquids.
Capacity: 8 classes (200 students) per session; 1 to 2 sessions per day. Requirements: Gym, auditorium, cafeteria, or other large, assembly-appropriate space. Fee:$455 for 1 session; $300 for an additional session. Travel fees apply for sites more than 30 miles from the Museum. Reservation: Required. For information and reservations: 617-589-0354, email@example.com.
