Demos

One thing everyone likes best about Science is Experiments!   Researching and presenting a demo for the class which illustrates a science concept is a great way to learn and have fun too!

You can do the Demo LIVE for the class or video your demo and  show the class electronically or take photos doing your demo at home and create a power point to show the class.

Requirements:

         Choose demo

         Get equipment for demo & Practice Demo

         Perform for class (Live or electronically)

         Be able to explain the Science involved (research this ahead of time)
