Product Details

What could it have been like to imagine the nature of an atom? How difficult is it to produce a model of something that can’t be seen? The Think Tube allows students to appreciate the challenges associated with things that cannot be directly observed. A series of simple demonstrations will be performed using the Think Tube as students record their observations and generate hypotheses. Kit includes a reproducible student worksheet master. 

Concepts: Models, hypothesis.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Provided: All necessary materials to assemble one Think Tube.
