Week of Oct. 30th
Well, we did it! We made it through space and explored how and why we know that different things affect us here on Earth. Now, were settling back into the lab by working on the basic foundation of life: matter. We are working on Matter and Energy. We will then transition to sound and waves. Get your safety goggles on as we break down the smallest elements that make up matter! Curiosity Matters!
