Splash lab is all about using different principles of STEAM to explore one of our most abundant compounds made of two elements: hydrogen and oxygen. Though water is everywhere on Earth, it is a very unusual compound because of the nature of the chemical bonds between its atoms. Here are a few facts:
- Water is denser in its liquid state than in its solid-state, which is why ice can float on or in liquid water.
- Water has an unusually high boiling point based on its molecular weight.
- Water is often referred to as the "universal solvent" because of its amazing ability to dissolve so many substances.
We have collected the following activities for you to experiment with water this summer.
