ACMS science teacher Kayla Stockton was awarded $3,500 through a grant from the Toshiba America Foundation for science equipment
These funds will support the Thermal Energy Project for seventh Graders. Thermal energy transfer is a major topic for seventh grade science. Students have to determine which type of materials, what size of materials and the amount of kinetic energy in an object produces the most thermal energy transfer.
After they determine which type and size of materials minimize and maximize the most thermal energy, students will be required to design a device that either minimizes or maximizes the most thermal energy from our class studies. All seventh grade science students will have the opportunity to participate.
