States of Matter

Traveling Programs are temporarily unavailable. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with public health guidance, the Museum will not be offering Traveling Programs for the remainder of calendar year 2020. The Museum will make a decision about Traveling Programs reservations for January – June 2021 later this calendar year. The Museum of Science is committed to supporting students and educators. Resources can be found at MOS at Home. More to come soon!

Available to Schools Only

Observe how solids, liquids, and gases change phases and properties when subjected to changes in energy, and learn how to define the states of matter. Our demonstrations involve extremely cold liquid nitrogen. Students will see balloons shrink, metal melt before their eyes, and a piece of paper set on fire using only water!
