Density's Destinies Science Class

Teacher: Eric McKee

Language: English
Views: 2

Description: Earth, considered the 'blue planet', is more than 70% covered in water. This massive volume of water shapes and forms the destiny of all living, and even non-living organisms. During this class we will examine one of the most significant properties of water, its density.

All matter is dense, but what does that even mean? How does density affect water, the environment, and organisms that depend on water? Why do some objects float in water when others sink? Can the density of water change?

By conducting a series of experiments using household objects, we can attempt to better understand density and answer these questions, along with many others. So get set to explore destiny of density at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge!
