The Discovery Project
Students will work in small groups to research and to recreate the *experimental instruments used to make significant discoveries about the atomic structure of atoms.
Each group will:
be assigned a specific experimental instrument.
Who used the instrument?
plan and acquire the necessary building materials.
build a replica of the instrument.
research the instrument:
What was discovered?
When and where was the instrument used?
How did the discovery effect our concept of atomic structure?
make a poster or PowerPoint displaying their research information.
present an oral report about their instrument.
