This program illustrates core ideas about heat energy. 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, melt a penny, find out that light can incinerate a piece of paper, and make a component of rocket fuel.
