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.
