Why do balloons pop? What is a gas? What happens if we fill balloons with different gasses? Join us LIVE from inside the Explore Science Zone as our Science Communicator investigates the different colours, characteristics and contents of the world of balloons. Learn the science behind a magic trick and watch as we twist a balloon into an animal and then give it a super cold Liquid Nitrogen bath. Come with us on a trip into the Science Gallery to visit some of your favorite exhibits and a look into our famous mirror room, The Matrix.
- Identify different colours.
- Objects are made of materials that have observable characteristics.
- Characteristics of materials determine their particular uses in objects
- Matter can exist in different states (solid, liquid, or gas), each state having specific properties.
- Matter can change from one state to another (e.g., by melting, freezing, boiling) by heating or cooling.
- Different types of solids, liquids, and gases can be described and classified by their observable properties and interactions with other solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., absorption of water, floatability, ability to dissolve), which can determine their uses.
