Event Overview: Find out how solids, liquids and gases change when rapidly heated and cooled.Smash a squash ball! Shrink a balloon instantly! What happens to living things if they are frozen?How can Newton's 3rd Law of Motion explain a liquid nitrogen sprinkler? Pop can lids and expand balloons... + many others as you learn about pressure, forces and changes in states of matter.

Your class will run experiments during the event using materials supplied by your school. Fizzics Education will provide background information required prior to the event date.Should you require a different day please contact us and we'll arrange a suitable time for you!

The session is presented by Ben Newsome, a recipient of a 2013 Churchill Fellowship on best practice in science education via video conference, 2015 Australian Small Business Champion for Education Services, co-founder of Virtual Excursions Australia and is on the ISTE Video Conferencing Network Leadership Team.

Australian Curriculum Outcomes - Primary school

A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046)
Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another. (ACSSU049)
Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076)
Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077)

NSW Science & Technology Syllabus Outcomes

- identifies ways heat is produced and that heat moves from one object to another (ST2-6PW)
- describes everyday interactions between objects that result from contact and non-contact forces (ST2-7PW)

Australian Curriculum Outcomes - High School

Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object (ACSSU117)
The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (ACSSU229)
The action of forces that act at a distance may be observed and related to everyday situations. (PW2)
Cells are the basic units of living things and have specialised structures and functions (ACSSU149)
The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (ACSSU151)

NSW Science Syllabus - High School

- describes the action of unbalanced forces in everyday situations (SC4-10PW)
- discusses how scientific understanding and technological developments have contributed to finding solutions to problems involving energy transfers and transformations (SC4-11PW)
- relates the structure and function of living things to their classification, survival and reproduction (SC4-14LW)
- applies models, theories and laws to explain situations involving energy, force and motion (SC5-10PW)
- explains how scientific understanding about energy conservation, transfers and transformations is applied in systems (SC5-11PW)

Booking Instructions:

Additional Booking Instructions: On booking we will send out a .pdf file which will contain;- a confirmation of the time/date of the video conference.- a list of experiment materials we expect that you will have available during the conference. These inexpensive science materials are readily accessible in any supermarket and make the video conference more interactive and engaging for students. Please check these details carefully.A tax invoice \will be forwarded to you to pass onto your school administration.

Further Information: Limit of 6 schools organised on a first come first served basis.Find over 100 free science experiment lesson ideas for the classroom on the Fizzics website: http://www.fizzicseducation.com.au/Free+experiments.html
