In the lab students combined PVA and Borax to create slime. They then conducted several tests to determine which state of matter this possessed the most characteristics of.
The 6th grade took a look at the states of matter with ScienceCentral in a lab where they were able to create, observe, test, and classify slime. Everyone did a fantastic job and had a great time learning about the uniqueness of this substance they created.
The group of students featured in this video are Washington 6th graders competing in Cyberpatriots national competition. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Washington, DC for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
