In this video, students learn about states of matter through a series of fun experiments. They explore the concepts of liquids, gases, and solids, and learn how to make a non-newtonian fluid. They also learn how to make rock candy and giant bubbles.
00:00:00 In this episode of "Science Max," Phil McCordick takes everyday science experiments and does them in a bigger way, demonstrating the difference between solid, liquid, and gas states of matter. He demonstrates that a non-newtonian fluid (a liquid that behaves like a solid when hit) can be made with cornstarch and water, and that when it is ice, it is a gas.
00:05:00 In this video, science teacher Max explains the difference between gases and liquids, and how gas will take the shape and volume of the container it is put in. He also explains how to make rock candy, using sugar and water as ingredients.
00:10:00 Anthony demonstrates how to make giant bubbles using smoke and bubbles.
00:15:00 Judy and I tried to mix cornstarch and mud using a drill with a mixer attachment, but it didn't work. We then tried using a cement truck, but it didn't work either. In the end, we used liquid nitrogen to mix the cornstarch and mud, and it worked successfully.
00:20:00 In this video, science Max students learn about states of matter. They explore the concepts of liquids, gases, and solids, and play a game where they create and walk on a mixture of cornstarch and water.
