Temple University’s College of Science and Technology (CST) and STEM Ed Network is proud to introduce FunScience Productions, the interactive program focused on providing free high-quality science lessons. Every episode brings a series of engaging demonstrations that enlighten students and teachers about the world around them in a fascinating way. The demonstrations are available in a broad range of topics including earth and space science, physical science, life science and, engineering practices. FunScience Productions highly benefits from FunScience Demos, founded by Dr. George Mehler, Assistant Professor CST with the support of ASM & CST. FunScience Productions also delivers episodes under the direction of Dr. Susan Jansen Varnum, Senior Associate Dean CST and Professor of Chemistry; and Surya Prayaga, a current Master’s degree student in Information Science & Technology with co-stars from the STEM-Ed Network and TUteach program.
Chemistry of Water
Water is everywhere, covering 70% of the surface of the world. Jared Hottenstein explains the different states of water and how these states are related to water’s density. In addition, he also conducts experiments to demonstrate how something as large as a ship can float on water and how something as small as a rock cannot, how water is used for large-scale production and how it generates hydroelectric power.
