Big ideas in Science 8
- Are you alive? If you are then you are made of cells. All life is based on the cell. We even have viral DNA and freeloading bacteria in our cells! Ick!
- Solid rock won't float on top of lava; but solid ice floats on water!? That's some strange stuff! Everything is made of 'stuff'. The way ‘stuff’ behaves is explained by atomic and kinetic molecular theory.
- Light is weird because it acts like both a wave and a particle. Nothing else does this! Why is light so special?
- Here in BC, they say the big one is coming. A mega earthquake. Did you know that we also have several extinct volcanoes on our coast? Earthquakes, volcanoes, and the moving continents are explained by plate tectonics.
