Event Rules: What's the Matter?

Description: This event will run as stations. Teams will rotate through stations, perform tasks and answer questions about the physical properties of matter and the behavior of solids, liquids, and gases before and after they undergo changes or interactions. See the rules for a more complete listing of topics.

Materials: Team members MUST bring a writing instruments and safety goggles. Teams may not bring resources to this event.

Event Leaders: Will provide a hands-on event with all necessary items, objects, materials, questions, and response sheets for participants to complete stations.
