Can Humans Really Feel Temperature?

For Students 7th - 12th Standards
Explore thermal energy with this short episode. Jiggling molecules and hand-drawn animation help to explain that just because something has a lot of thermal energy, it doesn't necessarily feel hot to the touch. This is an ideal addition...

Heat, Temperature, and Transfer

For Teachers 6th - 12th
Physical science scholars discover an array of heat sources. They experiment to connect radiation to heat. They begin to understand thermal equilibrium. Then, they test to see if mass affects the rate of temperature change. Choose a few,...

More on Internal Energy

For Students 7th - 10th
Internal energy is just that: the amount of energy a compound holds inside of itself. This is the energy that can never be created or destroyed, just transferred into another form. Just exactly what that form becomes, is determined by...
